Thread: FreePascal for GPH Caanoo

    FreePascal for GPH Caanoo

    Hi,

    finally i got a working cross compiler for Caanoo under Windows. I have attached a sdl sample demo, which runs on Caanoo and N800(!). It loads a image and display a simple image and after 2,5 seconds it terminates automatically. I used for cross compiling the original toolchain from GPH SDK.

    It can be, that the compiled samples runs under pandora, but i can't test it.

    Thomas

    PS.: It works on Palm Pre with WebOS 1.4.5 too.

    This seems interesting. Can you explain a little bit about Caanoo and what it is/does?

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GP2X_Caanoo

    The Caanoo is an open-source, Linux-based handheld video game console and media player created by GamePark Holdings of South Korea. It is the successor to the GP2X Wiz, and was showcased at the Electronic Entertainment Expo 2010.
    The Caanoo can run many emulators (e.g. GnGEO "SNK Neo Geo AES/MVS", Hu-Go "NEC PC-Engine", MAME4all "Arcade Coin-ops" and Picodrive "SEGA Master System / Megadrive / Mega CD / 32X"), freeware homebrew games/applications, flash games/applications (through an additional software), java games/applications (through an additional software) and commercial games/applications.
    cheers,

    From german gp2x board i got response, that the pandora is working too. So this cross compiler supports now:

    - Caanoo
    - N800
    - Palm Pre WebOS 1.4.5
    - Pandora

    Maybe:
    - Beagleboard
    - IGEPv2

    Greetings

    The IGEPv2 - Board is working too.

    I made a simple windows environment:

    http://www.seban.de/download/crossco...mel/FPC4ARM.7z

    The used programs and libraries are taken from cygwin, devkitGP2X or offical toolchains from GPH.

    Unpack it, call setupconfig.bat, which creates a valid fpc.cfg, depends on your setup path. Do not use a path with spaces in, i have not test this situation.

    To compile the sample, execute setenv.bat, which open a dos shell:
    cd sample\sdltest01
    make_gp2x.bat compiles for gp2x
    make_wiz.bat compiles for gp2xwiz
    make_armel.bat compiles for caanoo, pandora, IGEPv2, N800, PalmPre WebOS 1.4.5 and more.

    If you need more libraries, take them from device or available toolchain and put them into the "ToolChain\device\libs" directories, maybe you have to rename them. Thats all.

    cheers,
    Thomas

    Nice! Thanks so much Thomas

    I might try making some more programs for the GP2X again...

    So, would I just download the latest devkitGP2X then?

    cheers,

    The Libraries libSDL, libSDL_Image, libSDL_mixer and libSDL_ttf are already in my SDK, if you need more, you can copy them from gp2x device or take them from devkitGP2X - SDK. If you are using static libraries, you have to download devkitGP2X - SDK too.

    Hi Thomas,
    I followed the instructions above to compile the sdltest01 for gp2x, and it compiled nicely

    Now I just have to find my gp2x to do some tests! I have misplaced it...I'm sure it is at home SOMEWHERE

    Thanks for the SDK mate

    cheers,
    Paul
