Quote from: Cliff3D on 2010-Sep-08There's only what, about 700-800 Pandora units in the world? And they're on HotFix 4 "already". Pandora is currently a moving target, so I wouldn't expect stability to be a huge feature yet - which makes keeping up problematical for any software developer. Including, I imagine, the dev behind GLBasic.
Quote from: mrdremel on 2010-Sep-08At the end of this year there will probably be over 6000 Pandora's in the wild.
QuoteHotfix 1:* Kernel: Fixed a bug that caused the Linux Systemtimer to halt sometimes* Included missing packages: python-shell_2.6.4, python-pygtk_2.16.0, python-pycairo_1.4.0, gnome-vfs-plugin-http_2.24.1, gnome-vfs-plugin-ftp_2.24.1Hotfix 2:* Bluetooth: Disabling and restoring state on startup now working properly* XFCE4: When switching from MiniMenu to XFCE4, the settings are now properly loaded* Brightness-State: When shutting down, a brightness level of 0 is not saved* MiniMenu: Fixed caching and closed a memory leak* Automount: Now using umask 0 and noatime. Unmounting is using Lazy Mount.* Interfaces: Fixed the file. Now WiFi isn't disturbed by usb-network anymore* WiFi: LEDs now working* Kernel: Video: don't force waiting for refresh* MiniMenu: XFCE4-Apps now included in MiniMenu* New: Boost, Lua5.1 and Evince* New: Script to change the LCD refresh rate from 50 / 60 Hz (ideal for emulators)* Some typo fixes and general tweaksHotfix 3:* Kernel: Fixed problem with broken sound on some units. Also improved ALSA Buffer Underrun problems* Kernel Modules: Added USB Sound and Midi Modules as well as the TUN/TAN-Module* U-Boot: Fixed LCD timings on Reset (which caused weird dots around the Logo on reboot / Reset)* U-Boot: Added serial out via USB (ideal for debugging when trying to port new OSes to the Pandora)* MiniMenu: Added automatic Refresh on SD Card insert and quick navigation using keyboard letters* Battery-Settings: LED now starts blinking at 10% and shuts down at 5%. The previous values were too short.* Bugfix: op_fbrunapp had some problems with command line parameters. That's now fixed.* Services: Removed unneeded services from Startup - also services most users don't need (like dropbear, samba, etc.) They can be re-enabled with the new Startup-Settings* Startup-Settings: Added enabling / disabling services* New: Added Mass Storage mode via Mini-USB (can be enabled in the System-Menu)* Automount: Now using Label names (if the card has one) instead of mmcblk** Automount: Now using Dirsync instead of sync with 2s Buffer flush. This increases SD Write speed A LOT. However, be sure to wait at least 2 seconds before removing your SD Card after you saved data* Not yet fixed: PNDs will not run if they have a space in the filename or path (do not use spaces in your SD-Card labels for now!)* pnd_run-Script: Changed a few things to make it compatible with spaces in filenames (still needs some other fix). Thanks to Ivanovic.* Bluetooth-Script: Fixed save / restore settings on startup (thanks to urjaman)Hotfix 4:* Kernel: Added Bluetooth patch by urjaman. PAN (bluetooth internet connections) work fine now.* WiFi: Fixed the problem where you could not reconnect after you lost a connections* xf86-video-omapfb: add pandora specific screen blanking* Nub Mousebuttons: Moving down is now middle mousebuttons. Recognition of mouseclicks with the nub has been enhanced (patch by urjaman)* Pandora-Scripts: The internal scripts (CPU-Speed, Startup-Manager, etc.) have icons now.* Pandora-Scripts: Added simple TV-Out script.* Lid: Opening / Closing will not affect the powersave mode anymore.* Enhanced brightness scripts (made the more linear)* Powersave mode: Fixed the CPU Speed setting* pnd_run: Added support for clockspeed setting* libpnd: Support spaces in pathnames and PND-Names.* Updated to a more recent XFCE4-Version* First-Run-Wizard and Time / Date script: Fixed bug of not-appearing calendar* New default config for vim (thanks to Nils Kneuper (Ivanovic))* Python: Added python-misc and python-modules* New lib: libaudiofile0 now included* MiniMenu: New config dialogue included (will be improved in the future)* udev 151: add rule to reserve fb2* Leds: Fix TWL4030 PWM LED driver (thanks to Urja Rannikko)* Pandora misc: HACK to change OPP level according to set mhz (thanks to Urja Rannikko) + OPP limiter added (by notaz)* OMAP: DSS2: make filter coefficient tables human readable, DSS2: add some hackish FIR filter coefficient access

Quote from: Ocean on 2010-Sep-13...sadly somewhere somehow the announced focus on opening GLBasic up for non-games programming seems to have faded away quite a bit...just my 0.02 €.
Quote from: Ocean on 2010-Sep-13As to Pandora: this little system really is of interest to me, especially so if their logistics mature to a point where you don't have to put yourself on a waiting list and a continued availability is guaranteed. I guess I'd like the system to prove itself on the market before committing to it myself.
Quote from: mrdremel on 2010-Sep-08I have been mailing back and forth with Gernot about this, but it is not going to work out of the box.I have a Standard Pandora machine running hotfix 4. When I compile a game for the Pandora (build for other platform) and copy the Pandoramake directory to the Pandora and try to compile it does not work properly.There is an install script to install all the libraries needed to compile. The script gave a lot of errors, so I had to strip all the gui stuff out and just run the lib install lines. It worked. Now when I compile, I get a lot of compile errors. It doesn't seem to understand the GLBASIC language.Gernot gave me an e-mail regarding reinstalling the libs, but it all seems fine when I try to reinstall. I really need a working install script for everything needed on the Pandora, but I'm not getting any reply when I ask for that.Is there anyone who has gotten it to work....compiling a game on tha Pandora, for the Pandora?
