    I've seen the playstaion and NES emulators on the pre, and I was wondering if there was any way you could get a Sega Genesis/Mega Drive emulator running on it. Is there some way I can get a Linux based emulator to run on my device? Also, if there is somewhere specific to ask for this to be developed, can someone direct me there? I am new to this forum

    Anyone? Little help?

    Look for an SDL Genesis Emulator, if one exists than probably, go look at the WebOS-Internals site to learn more about setting up a cross-compile environment and compiling Doom as a tutorial.

    Thanks... I'll try, but I haven't done anything like this before

    It's not that difficult to do. You just need Linux to do it. You can either dual boot or run it in virtual box. I had a spare laptop, so I just use Ubuntu as the OS on it. I've been playing around with it for a while now. Also, I know I've seen SDL Genesis emulators out there so it shoudnt be too hard to port to the Pre.

    I guess Xmess is what you're looking for. I'm sorry, I cannot give you the link yet since I have less than 10 messages... Google for "Xmess-sdl Debian package", instead.

    The program's already been ported to the armel architecture, so in theory the pre could run it...

    Someone should run it through the compiler and see how it comes out. It's probably going to require some tweaks tho

    Yep, and it's a big package... There's a lot of code there and I guess tweaking that won't be that easy.

    Yeah, I also found a sdl for gens plus as well... But my computer with Ubuntu is broken right now. I guess I could set this one up for duel boot.. But I still wouldn't know what I was doing lol

    I imagine the gens plus sdl would be a lot less because it only supports 3 consoles as apposed to the 24 by xmess. I can't link so.. google it lol

    Yeah, and the dgen emulator is also sdl... But neither dgen nor gensplus have been ported to the armel architecture, so I guess there will be some work to do with the instructions set first.

    I'm looking through the Dgen configure file now. I'll run it through the compiler as is and see what happens. No promises lol

    Sidenote: Thank you whoever cleaned up and improved the PDK page on webos-internals.org. Much better
