Ade, a Dutch member of the Maemo community has released a port of openMSX and its user-friendly GUI for the Nokia N900.

Due to some issues the current version available is based on openMSX 0.7.2 - and not the most recent installment of the emulator. Further information about those issues can be found right here on our forum.

As the N900 runs on Maemo, a Debian-based Operating System, the emualtor can be installed swiftly from the extras-devel repository.

Note that the GUI is made specifically for the N900 by ade.

Rest assured that we are working to get the latest openMSX running on N900 as well, but it's going to take a bit longer.

Hehe, a was about to retire my N900, but now... I think I'll hold on to it for a little longer Wink

by the way, if I'm not mistaken the developer "Ade" is none other than former Flying Bytes graphician Arno Dekker! Small world, small world...

And we're still trying to sort out what's going on with Ade's envirionment. For some reason on jr's system things work better than on his...
