|I have begun to hack the WebPal and have been having more success than I even expected. Indeed, I now have a machine that is ready to have an IDE hard drive installed with apps on it. My only problem is this: Can it run a GUI like X-Windows? (I have seen this on the Archimedes) and what software has been, or can be compiled to run on the ARM processor? I'm not looking to see it become a serious multi-tasker or anything, but I believe we should be able to get some little apps like a terminal program, word processor, IRC client, etc... loadable to this device, and it *should* be possible to run them in a graphical shell. I mean seriously, I can run all that stuff, simultaneously, under OS/2 on my 386, so let's see if this can be done on the WebPal using Linux. I would greatly appreciate any info that anyone might have, and hope to see the WebPal become a more enjoyable hack than the I-Opener was, although that one WAS fun. I admit, I'm a sucker for the tough jobs, and I hope I'm not the only one. So...who's got the info?|
