Will Pandora be a popular console? It can emulate Nintendo DS Roms for FREE
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 6, 2010
I am not entirely sure it would be legal to do so, but I did notice that there is in fact a Nintendo DS emulator for Linux which can be downloaded to the Linux based Pandora gaming console....it also has an S-video out so you can play it on a large screen if you want to, monitor or television.
At first I kind of thought that it was maybe not worth it at over 300 US since I already have a PC, but if people can play the entire library of DS roms and roms from many other game systems from Gamebody on up as well as SNES games and others....any rom emulator for linux on a handheld device also playable on big screens...I am thinking that maybe this device is actually a bargain. The sheer number of games available for free download boggles the mind, including excellent roms (when legal to do so), and you can also watch it on your television or even play movies on your large capacity SDHC cards (dual cards).
I think this is going to be a great platform for Indy gamers. I am sure that peopl
LXer: nD, New $10 Gaming Handheld Device Claimed to be more Powerful than Nintendo DS, Runs Custom E
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 26, 2011
Published at LXer:
Robert and his team are all set to develop an indie handheld gaming console which will run a number of indie games. The device will support 2D games only and will run a custom developed embedded Linux firmware. nD will have its own Game Store which will allow users to download games from the device itself and well as from a PC game store. The SDK will be released soon in upcoming days and is based on open source gaming standard - SDL. But developers are told that they actually can start making and compiling games on Windows, Mac and Linux using a 320x240 resolution.
Overclocking : PII 300MHZ to 450/500MHZ?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 6, 2006
Alright let me first say thank you to the linux community and especially LinuxQuestions.Org for all the help over the yeas from helping me choose which distro to go with to solving various instalation combinations. I am very thankful than I am running two hard drive with two O/S's Windows XP Pro on the first driv and SUSE Linux 10.0 on the second. I am now running SUSE on all my computers and do not need nor plan on going back to windows. Now onto my next question...
I have obtained an old Compaq Deskpro and outfitted it fairly well with some stuff I had laying around, Pioneer DVD-Rom, 512MB RAM, 40GB HDD ... so I get SUSE 10.0 on it (this computer will be for my 8 year old son) So anyhow I get to looking at the hardware specs and SUSE is telling me that it's running @300 MHX and it's maximum is 500mhz ... now I did some basic research and found that it doens't seem too difficult to overclock this CPU and is actually fairly common and my question to you all is how do I go about doin
Programming on a Nintendo DS
location: linuxexchange.com - date: September 28, 2008
I was reading this answer previously and it got me interested in purchasing a Nintendo DS Lite for learning to program embedded devices. Before I go out and splurge on a DS I had a few questions:
Are there any restrictions on what you can program? The post I indicated earlier seemed to say there weren't, but clarification would be nice.
Would I be better off buying an arduino (or similar) and going that route? I like the DS because it already has a lot of hardware built in.
I'm thinking of getting a CycloDS Evo card, is there a better option for homebrew?
What are the best resources to learn about DS development?
Thanks for your time, If you have a DS and program on it, I'd love you hear your opinion, or alternatively if you have a better idea, I'd like to hear it too.
ASUS Xonar DS + Ubuntu 9.10
- date: February 9, 2010
I just did a fresh install of Ubuntu 9.10 on my HTPC , but my sound card , ASUS Xonar DS didn't work.
I updated to the latest ALSA drivers , as described here , and succesfully got the latest ALSA drivers :
:~$ cat /proc/asound/version
Advanced Linux Sound Architecture Driver Version 126.96.36.199.
Compiled on Feb 9 2010 for kernel 2.6.31-14-generic (SMP).
BUT my sound card isn't still detected!!
:~$ aplay -l
aplay: device_list:223: no soundcards found...
Then I saw this on ALSA page and saw that Xonar DS is supported (in ALSA ver 1.0.23 !!! Typo? ), as described here
So I :
sudo modprobe snd-virtuoso
sudo modprobe snd-pcm-oss
sudo modprobe snd-mixer-oss
sudo modprobe snd-seq-oss
:~$ aplay -l
aplay: device_list:223: no soundcards found...

ds python import math module
location: linuxexchange.com - date: January 26, 2010
I'm trying to get some python code I've written earlier on Windows to work on my DS. I'm using (DSPython), and when I tried to import math, it failed with "ImportError: No module named math". I've gotten most all other modules I need that don't rely on math working. But math is normally a builtin module, so I can't just find math.py on my PC and copy it over. Any suggestions on where I can find an alternative to the builtin math module that can still perform the same functions?
11.04 howto setup for dtv 2000 ds + y04g0051 remote ?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 3, 2011
What should I select within the Mythbuntu Control Centre's Infrared section to correctly enable my Leadtek WinFast DTV2000DS receiver and its Y04G0051 remote ?
- Do I enable "USB & Serial Remote support via LIRC ?
- What remote do I select ? Winfast TV2000/XP (card=34) ? or Winfast PVR2000 ? or something else ?
- Do I enable "Generate dynamic button mappings" ? (whatever that is) ?
- Do I enable "Generate frontend restart mapping (Power followed by Clear)" ? (whatever that is)
- Do I need to "Enable an IR Transmitter" ? If so, which one ?
Or does Mythbuntu and its Control Centre not suppport it and instead I need to follow these instructions (which is for Ubuntu 10.10) http://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.ph...upport_.282.29?
I'm running Xubuntu 11.04 x86 32 bit and its Mythbuntu Control Centre. I heard that its kernel, ie 2.6.38-8, includes support for this remote.

I have setup 389 Server by running setup-ds-admin.pl which installed both the admin and directory server.I have kept the Linux Installation minimal due to which I dont have X Windows running. All I want is access and administer through remote Windows.
is there any interface tool for Windows through which I can administer the 389 Server running on centOS linux?
SSO using Fedora Directory Server (DS)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 12, 2009
I've installed Fedora-DS in my Fedora 11 machine by following these instructions: http://www.vglug.info/how-setup-fedo...10-ldap-server
Install went fine and replicated against the test client using "getent passwd."
However I do have a question, how do I use the DS server to authenticate all ssh and unix machine logins?
What I'm trying to find out is when a user logs into any corporate unix machine, it will read the user's login creden against the DS and either accept or reject existing user.
Please kindly advise mates.
Problems with hibernation on HP ProBook 450 G!
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 23, 2014
I have a HP ProBook 450 G1 notebook (Intel i5 Haswell processor, embedded graphics) and I have a problem with hibernation.
The problem is this: after thawing, the system in unstable. A consistent behaviour is that after two hibernations (without rebooting), the second thaw seems to put the system in a working state, but actually it does not: if you try to start applications they won't start and, after some clicks, the system usually freezes completely.
/var/log/pm-suspend.log does not reveal anything interesting.
/var/log/syslog shows "general protection faults" when this happens. This is just an example:
