brief report of the demos testet on ben
with OpenWrt 2.6.31-gr5633d-dirty kernel (oct-13)

asciiportal ->woks (but I have to practice a little more to get how to play :P)

eduke32 -> partialy works tested with duke3d atomic, first chapter
starts but once an enemy comes to play it
slows down to make it unplayable and you die , other chapters just
fail to charge.

openfiero ->not work screen is a  mess of stripped blinking lines
(binaries taken form

prboom -> not work screen blinks and a (not so) mess of stripped lines
with half horizontal screen size make you guess what's going on on the
game, playable but ugly , (doom2.wad file from

sdlquake-> works :)

spout->works but is difficult as hell :)

fbgrab-> works

anything more out there willing to be tested? my nano is hungry of
experiences :) I hope Javier will soon finish tunning the wifi card
and the firmare license issue will be solve to start testing net apps
any posibility to have one of those wifi cards?
