GLBasic TV Console (based on RPi)
« on: 2012-Jul-06 »
Hi!

I open this new topic about GLB + Raspberry Pi (http://www.raspberrypi.org/).


We know RPi have ARM processor... and we have some Linux distro for use with RPi...

We can compile our GLB software to Caanoo target device... and runs in Rpi.

...

If you are used the avaliable Linux IMG images you know about needed SD card space (+- 2 gb).

My idea is REDUCE the size of Linux at minimum for run our only GLB apps.... like tv console.


Imagine:

1. Insert a SD card to RPi with only base kernel and minimum libs for use keyboard, joystick (usb), sound, net, video...

2. Loaded the OS... automatic launch our "GLB interface" (like Smart Tv, developed of course with GLB) with our GLB apps/games stuff...


Unfortunately I not have knowledge to know which files to add / remove, etc in a Linux distribution.  :o


Any more interested in "make" our GLB TV Console?  =D

Any help for reduce size / adapt files of Linux distro?


TIA, Hark0

Very nice idea!! If it was below 20 MB, we could ship it with GLBasic and make a "standalone" RPI package. Would be very cool, because it would just run.

Hi!

It appears that someone will try to port the very small distro "Puppy" to the Raspberry Pi hardware.

When my Raspberry Pi will arrive, I will search a little bit, may be we could work over Dawn Small or MiniKnoppix distributions.

YES!!!!

AND.... WE CAN MADE A GOOD INTERFACE (like Smart TV / Metro, etc) for launch OUR  GLB apps...
