DR800 Emulator

While waiting for my 800S ( UPS currently shuffling it around Europe ) I decided to see how hard it was to run the emulator and have a quick decco at the iOn doc.

Well colour me impressed !!! I went down the not recommended route of doing a kvm image of ubuntu 8.04 LTS on a Fedora 12 box. Then a very quick install of the required poky software and the emulator.

Fired her up ( so now running qemu under qemu(kvm) and it ran perfectly bar bottom part of screen missing. A combination of increasing the resolution of the kvm display to 1200x900 and following the docs using fbset -n -xres 1024 -yres 768, to get a fully viewable emulated device.

Now the only issue I have is that the menu button does not work ( and the ebook mall cannot connect, I wonder why that can be )

Any of the 1000 vm image users now how to simulate the various buttons?
