Awhile back, I copied the /bin folders from an optware debian loop mount on my K3, into a folder on /mnt/us. I was surprised at how many of them run fine without a loop mount. Even the BSD games collection. Adding some of those to your collection may be faster than building them from source.
When I get around to it (i.e. when we have external OTG working), I want to add USB sound to the "Deaf and Dumb
" kindles. I bought a 10-pack of USB sound sticks for about $1 each (free shipping) from a Chinese ebay store. Linux sees them straight up (nothing to install). With the plastic cover and USB plug removed, they are small enough to squeeze inside a kindle wifi (perhaps connected to the INTERNAL USB for kindles where the 3G would go). Someday (Real Soon Now
)... Too many projects and not enough time. Such is life.
