    Protecting the pyra

    Not thinking so much about in this thread about security as in trying to stop someone from pinching my pyra or software-based security. What I'm thinking of is how to protect the pyra from things like being dropped or bumped. A very long time ago someone suggested (back when the pandora was...

    Installing debian onto pyra

    Edit: Changed title from "pandora" to pyra. Why do I still want to type pandora? x.x ..... anyway.... Hello all! Just a quick question here. Does anyone know how installing an OS (debian) onto the pyra will work? So for example would the pyra have its own version of the debian installer? I...

    A case for the pyra.

    Hello all! No I don't mean trying to 'make a case' for the pyra or anything like that - but instead here's a thought. You see once the pyra arrives and since it should be relatively quick I'm hoping to use mine as a replacement for a couple of devices (one being an old mobile phone which in turn...

    Rockbox on pandora with bluetooth

    Hello all! Really just trying to revive something here (I understand some of the software is getting pretty much out of date). But what I'm trying to do is to simply use the Rockbox app for pandora to play audio over bluetooth, rather than over headphones or internal speaker. I can get...

    Disabling low power/power management while audio recording

    Hello all :-) ! Just got a small problem here. I can record with my pandora and audacity without problem - but it dosen't seem to work with longer recordings. After roughly ~12 mins, (I'm guessing here) the screen blanks out (can be brought back btw!) and I am guessing that the pandora is...

    Pandora repairs

    Hello all! A while back I was going to see if it was OK to return my pandora as the screen appears to have developed a fault (I'm thinking it is the screen cable). I have the RMA sheet as a PDF to fill out but not sure what to do next. Do I have to buy the new screen cable and then send it back...

    Pyra carry case

    Ok maybe this question is just a bit on the premature side .... but once the pyra is here and people have them are there any plans to have some sort of official pyra carry case? I remember ages ago the pandora had one though I was thinking would it be possible to make the carry case stronger...

    Pyra questions

    Ok, I apologise for not thinking of a better title! :) Just had a few questions regarding the all-new pyra however. It certianly looks like an intresting device! Firstly though when abouts might the pyra enter production? Just roughly -- are we talking maybe the end of this year, or the end...

    Audacity/Recording audio on pandora problem (either with internal sound or USB)

    Hello all :) Was just wondering if anyone else here has had this problem at all, namely trying to get any sort of audio recording working with audacity on the pandora. To date, I've not had a lot of luck! First of all, I've been using this (...

    Pandora GTK config file location for pandora apps

    Hello all :) Ok, first of all -- here's what I'm trying to do. I'm trying to change the fonts used in the menus and programs of GTK pandora apps (e.g. firefox, abiword, audacity, etc). Normally on a linux system there's a file called ".gtkrc-2.0" that you can place in your home (or root)...

    I Think My Pandora May Have Died! X.x

    Oh noes! :( (Sorry for the typo in the thread name). Ok this has happened pretty recently. Actually it happened today! What the problem is that my openpandora is intermittently starting up or not powering up at all - battery or with power/charger unit. Sometimes it will power up but only...

    Wifi Not Working Properly After Reflash

    Hello all :) , Just recently I had a problem with my pandora. For some reason which I just couldn't put my finger on the timezone got messed up (was permanently stuck on GMT+1); also I'd lost several XFCE icons on the menu bar. After a lot of reading up, googling and reading through the forums...

    Pandora Easy Way To Make Small/simple Programs For Pandora?

    Hello all, A while back I tried to install the cross compiler (following the instructions found here ) -- last time I tried it I could not get it to work, however this time (using an old 32-bit EEEPC running Slackware 13.1) it works! However that's not the reason for my post? My reason? The...

    Firefox Problems

    Not sure if anyone else here has this problem at all but I can´t seem to get this one fixed! Both versions of firefox from the pandora apps (pnd´s) seem to have this problem. They work fine for a while but then any attempt to use the menus or bookmarks freezes up the entire browser x.x has...

    (Yet Another) Pandora Review

    Hello all :) Figured I'd finally get round to doing a quick review of my pandora! So I guess I've had my pandora for about a week now. It was quite something to finally recieve it though! I didn't have the first idea as to where I was in the queue but I'm guessing I must have been within the...

    Pandora Pandora Live Cd

    Hello all :) ! Been trying to think about the quickest (and easiest) way to try to compile already existing programs for the pandora. In another thread I (incorrectly!) suggested TCC though it only outputs x86. D'oh :-) . But here's a thought. There are possibly several people who will have a...

    Pandora Compiling For Pandora (Tcc?)

    Hello all :) ! Now that I have my pandora (yay!) I'm now starting to wonder just how to compile programs for the pandora that already exist with source and what to use. I'm no programmer but there's at least one or two programs I'd like to compile for the pandora. I've not tried any of it yet...

    Usb Not Working?

    Hello all :) I'm having a problem with my pandoras' USB. I have a small external (2.5") SATA hdd in a frame which claims it is USB 2.0 Hi-speed compatible. If I plug it into my pandora (via the USB A Connector at the back of the pandora) it dosen't seem to be detected (but it is powered up)...

    Dingoo V Sansa E280 ?

    Hello all, I've not yet bought a dingoo yet but I was wondering - how well does it compare to (say) a Sansa e280 running rockbox? In particular the larger screensize and better resolution (320x240?) of the dingoo looks intresting. But what's the build quality of the dingoo like, I've read in a...

    Pandora''s 3d Graphics

    Hello all :) ! I'm sorry if there have been 9,999 threads on this before(!) but I was just wondering whereabouts does the pandoras' 3D chip fare with regards to the other common (e.g. nVidia) 3D chips out there in terms of speed? I understand that since the pandora is ARM based some things...
