Re: Is there a way to use the LCDs for, say, the PSP with the pi?

There is a DSI interface for display panels on the board. It might require a bit of soldering work though to use it.

Re: midi controller

Or just a USB - MIDI Interface. It is a cheap option also if you already have your MIDI devices. I do that already here, playing music on my desktop PC that runs Arch Linux.

Probably more expensive as a cheap DVI screen. :(

Re: Some OSes I will be playing with

<t>As for AROS, we are probably stuck with the Linux hosted version. Though the requirements are not so heavy, all you need is X and SDL to run AROS. I guess it should not be hard to set the system up in way that boots dircetly into AROS running on full screen.<br/> <br/> Or we could open a bounty f...

Re: Sealed casing

There won\'t be a case in the base package.

And what would be the point in sealing it if there would be? This thing is about openness and being able to study and hack it as you want.

Re: AROS - A lightweight multitasking OS, perfect for the Pi

AROS uses Gallium3D, so if I understand correctly, they can use some of the Linux drivers. For example they use Nouveau for Nvidia cards.

[quote]It works really well and the requirements are so low. Shame I am not much of a programmer. If I was, I\'d be helping out on the port.[/quote]
AROS development works on a bounty system, so it is also possible to help a port by adding more money to it\'s bounty.

Re: Some OSes I will be playing with

I think ReactOS is not supported on ARM. It\'s aim is to reimplement Windows NT. It\'s the same situation as Wine under Linux. While technicaly it should be possible to compile Wine on ARM, you won\'t be able to run any Windows applications on it, since those come as binaries compiled for x86.

Re: AROS - A lightweight multitasking OS, perfect for the Pi

I would be more than happy if the AROS port to ARM would become a reality.

Till then, I plan to use a minimal Linux install with PUAE to run an Amiga environment.

I am actually thinking about disassembling an Amiga 1200 and rebuilding it around a Raspberry Pi.
