New Developer Blog Post
those issues mentioned there are exactly why I am so looking forward to this device. having to hack around a bit to get all those things working is fun!
btw: i see 1.april jokes like this coming: pandora released!!111
but the date could fit
Acceptable for the first release, but definitely not as a permanent solution.
Does that mean that ALSA doesn't support the audio chip yet?
Big thanks to Ed, and to all those developers racking there brains to make this unit worth everyones time!
Sadly, it looks like another 30 days before end user units start to ship(at best)! Oh well!
I'm confused about the WiFi
They say 'without using SDIO it was SLOW'
Then they talk about 1200Kbs. Then they seem to imply that wifi may or may not work when system ships. Does that mean they won't be including any driver at all if they can't get a 'fast' driver working? 1200Kbs is plenty fast for my needs!
Thanks for the detailed heads up on the OS ED. Sets the expectations pretty well.
It just means we don't have a software mixer setup yet. Sound output is done through Alsa, so I guess ALSA works
Ohhhh I never read it like that, I read it as: not working full speed, but may get it working for initial release, (otherwise we'll just have to live with the slow implimentation until then)
Hopefully it's the way I understood it.
Sorry, my fault... it should be 1200bps approx
So REALLY slow.
The driver will still be on the system, yes. Maybe it will even be working fully upon release. This is definately one thing we (or better: DJWillis) is hardest working on. But he's got very little time at the moment.
though im still wondering which nub will be usable as mouse.
since im right handed i would hope it to be the right one (and leave it like that so games that require mouse aim, remain more like console style), but since theres also people left handed, (or people who likes to control it on the left psp legacy?)
hope that can be easily customized.
After seeing the recent pictures/videos of the plain Pandora's I don't want the silk screen.
And since that sentiment may imply that I want the project to fail my order number is . . . :unsure:
A complete black pandora... With no silkscreening... I'd love it!! The first batch could be regarded as the Black Panther Edition
It's a Panthora!
1200 Kilobits = 150 KiloBytes = which is barely 1% of the 11 MegaBytes of 802.11b. That's pretty slow... it's only slightly better than 2x dialup.
Edit: Wait 1200bps! That's like beating a stone with a stick... or sending smoke signals.
edit: aww, damn, got me
Maybe it was kbps - I haven't measured it out myself... just remembered the value 1200 in the IRC.
I think it MIGHT've been kbps - as with 1200bps, websites wouldn't work, and DJWillis was actually browsing the net.
wget something and you will find out
thanks for the update can't wait
I really hope we will have silkscreening
I'm right handed but I'd prefer to use the cursor with my left nub and scroll with the right. I like the way it's implemented on the PS3 web browser. But either way, it should be able to be customized.
