there may be a way but you would have to make your own drivers and almoast start from scach. you would also have to compile it for the dragon ball proseser. It may be posible but don't ask me to do it.

lol not all PDA's run on the Dragonball CPU, some run on "Intel XScale", some run on "ARM StrongArm" mine uses a "Hitachi SH4 200mhz"

What kined of pda are we talking becouse there are many linux distros for i paqs and older palm III. I personaly havent played around with them much but I have tried a form of linux for the palm. You can search it on goolgle and fined it.

it is only possible to run menuet on a pda with x86 processor (and even then it probably will not work fully because of unsupported hardware)...

luka666: there arent any x86 based pda's afaik XScale is a RISC architecture, StrongARM is RISC and SH4 is an architecture of its own

I think that this could be done with macros - just replace x86 mov operand with dragonball ones and you're set Very Happy
I *think* you can change fasm source and replace add eax,ebx defined bytes with dragonball ones, but this is again just one of my theories...

The real problems start to rise when you hope you have the same interrupts and calls :S that would be the hardest thing to do.

isnt there a way to do things well backwards? what i mean is take the ASM source convert it to C/C++ and make it platform independent?
