well.. TBH... I am using it as a proof of concept at this point.
I got wish working now via kual-system - helpful.
I got tcl/tk working now via kual-system (that alone is pretty sexy)
It has a built in clock (yep a nice digital readout) and a few other helpful widgets... If I never get it going I will be happy just with throwing things at kual-system and making that ACTUALLY useful to devs by the time it hits the end-user. ("read" future kindle developers)
after burning a day on failing to get MAME to run sensibly - and another few hours wasted on messing around with the rtc stuff I just figured I would do SOMETHING that I wanted to do for a while.
I would dearly love to have nice popup on-screen messages that don't require the horror that is EIPS to enact.
and along that way if I end up making kual-system do a few more bits and bits OOTB then so much better : )
here is more silliness for when external keyboards become a reality:
[root@kindle armv7l]# TK_LIBRARY=/mnt/us/extensions/system/etc/tcltk/tk8.4 \ TCL_LIBRARY=/mnt/us/extensions/system/etc/tcltk/tcl8.4 \ LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/mnt/us/extensions/system/lib/`uname -m`\
I'm just playing around really.. trying to bring more tools to the table.
