Anybody have any experience with cross-compiling in Free Pascal (either Windows or Linux) for the Pandora handheld? I'm looking into compiling my game for this system but have been unable to find any guides or tutorials on this for Free Pascal (only for C++)...

I guess noone have access to a physical device, making testing hard

But it uses OMAP3530. The same as on the Beagleboard and Nokia N900, and runs Linux. Should be possible

BeRo has a guide for N900 compilation: http://vserver.rosseaux.net/tutorials/fpcn900.php

About 700 Pandoras has been shipped so far but I don't know if any of the receivers are Pascal user.

I'm still waiting for mine Pandora (pre-ordered the first day) but I may try and do some cross compiling when I receive it.

I believe the pandora is somewhat equal to the beagleboard. For the beagleboard i have a crossplatform setup based on windows xp. Pascalscript / sqlite / opengles 2.0 (sqlite and opengles dynamic linking to .so files) is useable. You should be able to find some post about me strugling on getting it to work.
