Well, I finally caved and assembled a system capable of running the scratchbox development VM for IZ2S. And imagine that, it seems to work. Sorta kinda.
I like all the goodies in IZ2Se, but I can't get any sound out of it. Not even with the madplay and mpg123 executables that come with it. But if I borrow the libSDL from IZ2Se and install it in the older IZ2S 2.05beta along with the scratchbox built rockbox, it makes noise. Still needs work though. I need to strip it down and tweak it a bit so it doesn't push the cpu and memory to the limits. But this'll be really convenient because now I can load up a micro SD for the zipit with a single FAT partition containing IZ2S, rockbox, and a bunch of music. And I can do that from Windows, Linux, or whatever. Yay!
libSDL is in nightsky-iz2s.zip
qemacs for IZ2S (everyone wants that, right?)
