    I hope these are useful for devs:


    C6Flo


    C6Run


    C6Accel


    The most interesting from my ignorant point of view is C6Run:

    Maybe this can be used to easily compile audio/video codecs, filters, etc. to run in the DSP.


    What do you think of these tools? Are they useful? I hope somebody starts using the DSP soon (I'd love to see 800x480 AVC+AAC playback on my Pandora).

    I got this email as well but unfortunately this is all useless until we move up to a less ancient kernel. At the moment the DSP is not accessible at all.


    I believe notaz is one of the only people working on the kernel at the moment and that's no small task. I'm getting a development environment set up to try and help out, but I'm certainly no kernel dev.

    Thanks for feedback.


    I hope they can get the DSP working soon. It would be nice to have a DSP-accelerated mplayer for example.


    Also I'd like to ask a pandora-kernel-newbie question: Why are there so much problems getting newer kernels to work on the Pandora? AFAIK Beagleboard core hardware is almost the same and DSP support for BB has been working for ages.
