Linux Ported To Dingoo A320 51

Busshy writes "Linux has arrived on the Dingoo A320, a portable console that was recently released in Asia (bundled with emulators for 16-bit consoles) which looks like the bottom half of a DS Lite. It also has an XMB that closely resembles those that PSP and PS3 owners are used to. Homebrew Coders have already ported ScummVM and PRBoom (Doom Engine) to Dingoo Linux."

    You are likely right(if not a year, it'll be ebay fodder in 18 months). However, on the plus side, the Ingenic JZ4740 on which this device is based seems to be the beating heart of a nontrivial percentage of the wacky pacific rim media gizmos currently on the market. With any luck, and a bit of continued interest, this project should be able to mutate as needed to find newer hosts.
