Dingux on GameGadget
« on: April 28, 2012, 10:15:37 AM »

Just wanted to let you know OpenDingux 'works' on the GameGadget (jz4750).
I use a sandbox kernel that the GG people distribute, and a rootfs from OpenDingux.

So awesome! It's that mean that kernel would work on dingoo?

Nope :)

rootfs also doesn't work.

To be precise it's not OD running on that GG device, just GMenu :)

Yes, it is OD.  Good work!

I used the GG sandbox kernel from here...
http://www.gamegadget.net/docs/sandbox_0.9.4.zip
(this is now updated -not tested- to
http://www.gamegadget.net/docs/sandbox_0.9.5.zip)

I just replace the rootfs.bin file with this one...
http://www.treewalker.org/opendingux/opendingux-rootfs.2011-09-04.bin
(and left the GG kernel file as it was)

Also, I copied the OpenDingux version of sqrxz over and ran it from "applications->Explorer"
http://www.sqrxz.de/sqrxz-3/sqrxz-3-download/

Works fine. Also, I've tried the legacy Dingux rootfs and that worked too with the GG kernel
http://hkzlab.ipv7.net/files/misc/dingux/normal_dingux/rootfs_elta_fixtremor.zip
(has doom, etc... but some games didn't work - I think due to /proc mismatches).

Doesn't work for me, must have done something wrong.

I put vmlinuz.bin from http://www.gamegadget.net/docs/sandbox_0.9.4.zip on the GG (not on the SD). Couldn't copy rootfs.bin because the file is too big.

Then http://www.treewalker.org/opendingux/opendingux-rootfs.2011-09-04.bin on the GG too (renamed to rootfs.bin)

Then nothing happens. It seems you click A when turning on the GG, am I wrong ?

Thanx.

Yes, you should put the files on the SD card.
Hold A while you reboot.
If it doesn't work you may need to format the SD card (seems windows works best, fat32)
(or try a different/'better' one).

Thanx for your help !

I did some tests with the OD rootfs and some emuls work fine.

Did someone checked the overclockin feature? 500 MHz maybe would run psx at decent speed w/ sound.

But seriously i don't know.

oops, missed off the games link from above, but these work too DOOM, HERETIC, HEXEN...

I tried the legacy Dingux rootfs and that worked too with the GG kernel
http://hkzlab.ipv7.net/files/misc/dingux/normal_dingux/rootfs_elta_fixtremor.zip

Along with a set of games in local.zip (also unzip on the root for the SD card):
http://warpedflash.com/dingoo/local.zip or http://www.mediafire.com/?jdxl2mtleyn
(though some other included games didn't work (MAME), and no sound - I think due to /proc mismatches).

Anyone know how I could fix this (apart from waiting for OpenDingux and a new MAME build?) e.g. a kernel patch?
Or is it possible to compile a legacy kernel for the GG so more legacy Dingux/Emulators would work?

Cheers,
    -Duncan.

p.s. Anyone else working on this? At the moment all I know is me and BAFelton.

Hi,

I take it you just copy the emulator files to the root on in its own directory on the SD card, I cant get anything working at all, so you just press select to add the link and press A on the emulator?

Does anyone have a list of emulators and download links of emulators that work on the game gadget (open dingux)

Many thanks

First you have to be sure OpenDingux runs.

If you press A when you boot the GG, the menu opens (like in the vids) and you can make links to the emulators.

You should first try emulators for Dingux here : http://dl.openhandhelds.org/cgi-bin/dingoo.cgi

Decompress them on your SD/Home/Emuls (for example) and make a link to the executable.


For example :

http://marvin.crapouillou.net/~paul/nobackup/zx81/dingux-cap32.2011-09-05.tar.bz2

Decompress it all, and make a link to 'dingux-cap32' file inside. Some executables are .dge files.

It should make an icon on the menu and you just have to launch it.



I made a lot of links on my forum here : http://caanoo.forumactif.org/forum
