[4] sound issues(like buffer underruns)

[5] require keyboard re-mapping

[6] needs patching to take advantage of the big screen resolution

[7] The tinygui version was dropped from upstream...because no one maintained it and it was broken

[8] Unusable without the tinygui, and the tinygui version was dropped from upstream

TODO

  • try to modify prboom to load the system configuration instead of .prboom/prboom.cfg, that would permit us to ship a config per device(with the prboom-devconfig.bb recipe)
  • try to find the supertux patches used in maemo(wide screen for nokia900, map touching the screen to Escape in order to permit the exit of supertux)
  • investigate the customs fields in /usr/share/application/*.desktop that could permit to have a device specific launch Exec commandline.
