Linux game console adds GPU, accelerometers

Filed under
Hardware

GamePark Holdings (GPH) is readying a new version of its GP2X handheld game console running open source Linux games. The "GP2X Caanoo" is equipped with a 533MHz ARM9 CPU and 3D-ready GPU, a 3.5-inch display, Wi-Fi, and an accelerometer with a vibration motor.

The heir to GPH's previous, Linux-based GP2X "Wiz" game console, which in turn replaced other models, starting with the original GP2X, the GP2X Caanoo will ship at the end of the month, says Maxconsole.net, which posted specs for the device.

The Caanoo will be available in three versions, ranging from a basic $120 model up to one equipped with a Wi-Fi-dongle version, games and accessories for $150, says the site. Engadget, citing the Maxconsole.net site, simply says the device will ship August 15 for $150, and will be available via importers such as Play-Asia.

Ultimate Linux on the Desktop

Over the past couple of years I have set out to create the ultimate Linux on the desktop experience for myself. Obviously everyone who runs Linux has their own opinions on things. What this post will outline is my ultimate Linux on the desktop experience. So just remember that before you get your panties in a knot on HackerNews because you live and die by Xmonad (I live and die by i3, fight me). First, you should already know that I run everything on my laptop in containers. I outlined this in my posts about Docker Containers on the Desktop and Runc Containers on the Desktop.

Dedoimedo interviews: DistroWatch

I don't there's much for me to add. Jesse provided a very detailed drilldown into what DistroWatch is, what it does, and most importantly, how you can help, whether you're a reader or a distro developer. Getting involved may be intimidating, but it also has its rewards. And there's potential for blooming tech writers to spread their wings, too. Anyhow, I'd like to thank Jesse, introspect on our uncanny pseudo-genetic similarity, and go back to plotting and hatching additional stories, reviews and interviews. To wit, if you have any ideas or recommendations, or if you crave some spotlight yourself, feel free to contact me. WARP 9, engage. Read more

GoboLinux: A Linux Distribution With New Filesystem Hierarchy

GoboLinux introduces a lot of new ideas and designs into the Linux distributions world. Things like the filesystem hierarchy and the compiling scripts are amazing examples of what “modernizing” Linux distributions may really mean. However, the distribution wasn’t intended to be “user-friendly” or “ready-out-of-the-box”. Because of this, it can be said actually that the distribution manages to achieve its goals. An experianced user with a lot of time would definitely enjoy using and tweaking GoboLinux to fit his needs and learn in his way. Read more
