    I am incredibly excited to see posts of working flash players for GP32 so naturally i wanna check it out. Unfortunately, I have never encountered Linux before and wish to understand a)how it works and B) how do I run the flash player in it?

    Is Linux just a program you open from your GP? or is ti a whole firmware (as it is an operating system)??

    Thanks in advance

    i found this little guide:

    1. Download http://www.gp32linux.com/download/gp32linux_nano_pkg.zip and unzip it to a folder on your HD.
    2. Open up the folder called "linux" and rename "initrd.nochat" to "initrd".
    3. Download every single file from http://gp32linux.gp32news.com/flash/
    4. Put start into the folder "linux" (overwriting the old one) and put the other files into "linux/x".
    5. Copy over the everything onto your GP32 into GPMM and launch the "bootload-1.0.fxe".
    6. Wait, turn your GP32 90° and watch the parody of pong play at a choppy framerate. Do not push any buttons or move the cursor, as this might rise the possibility of a crash (at least it does for me).

    try that out, i'm about to!
