ummm... if you don't mind me asking, why aren't you running the emu under Windows? I thought the Jornada 720 comes with MS Windows and openMSX should run on it as well... :-) Just curious.
Yeah, the Jornada 720 comes with Microsoft Handheld PC 2000 (aka Windows CE 3.0). But as you may know, this OS is getting obsolete and unsupported. But 720degrees appeared as a Debian ARM distro to install in the device to save the day. Now the Jornada 720 users enjoy of a full updated and powerful operating system with thousand of apps ready to run. One of them is openMSX Wink

Yeah, there are still some minor problems, but this proves that openMSX is very usable on a 200MHz ARM based handheld Smile

So, why do people keep porting fMSX???

Because some of them have ARM devices with 70-100MHz only (like Sansa E2xx media player).

Speaking about a long-awaited cheap pocket-size MSX, will the 85$ Dingoo A320 (a newer version of the known Gemei X-760) console be a good platform for openMSX to port to ?

Any platform for which there is a port of g++ (GNU C++ compiler) or a mostly compatible C++ compiler, SDL, and the other openMSX dependencies, should be relatively easy to port openMSX to.

So I can conclude that in fact nobody here is interested in running MSX on the super cheap pocket console with video-out that promises to be the super hit of year 2009.

If I am wrong and there is interest in porting, here is the link to SDK which will help you to decide if porting is possible.

Well, with HP Jornada 720 is was not a matter of "porting" as Debian ARM arch already offer the binaries for ARM and openMSX runs out of the box. I was quite surprised by the excellect performance that the emulator showed on the StrongARM at 206Mhz. As I said in previous posts, fMSX was slighty faster but without sound working correctly; with openMSX every was perfect, at least for MSX 1.

About that pocket console, if it's able to run some flavour of Unix it most likely openMSX will work if you get through the dependencies.

karloch: in the mean time the performance has been improved a lot, Wouter even added some ASM routines for ARM. (All in the context of the GP2X port.)

cax: you're quick in drawing conclusions. What did you expect to happen?

manuel:

I expect to see any interest in MSX running on the mentioned device, on which some 10 emulators are already running.
Isn't affordable pocket MSX is what many of us desire so much ?

At least a couple of "cool, I want this device with MSX running on it" messages, like the ones I saw in DealExtreme's forum.
Otherwise there is no reason in investigating it's SDK and ways to port emulator to this console.
