If the ZEOMA will "just plug it in" and work with an EOMA68-A20 cards on offer,
meaning the drivers provided by the OS can run the screen, wi-fi, etc., then I
think it is already over half-way done! For instance, I'd just need to install
the Xorg Joystick driver or make it automatically launch EmulationStation.
EmulationStation can be configured to launch any libre games practicable. I've
been experimenting with Zeroinstall for fetching games or versions that are not
Solarwolf runs well on as low as 1 Ghz processors without any 3D acceleration.
Freedink is probably a good candidate, too. I haven't tried many libre games on
low-powered hardware so this list needs expansion. Also, games with no built-in
joystick support will require extra accommodations.
Of course, someone would need to put in the work to derive a pre-configured
gaming ISO from a Debian or Parabola base. This could be sold on eoma68 cards
or put on a "specially prepared" SD card to flash eoma cards. If anyone can
offer some expertise in this area, please chime in.
P.S. I'd like to thank and welcome GaCuest to this mailing list. I had heard
the ubrewit-zeoma project was a little hard to reach. Collaboration between
these two communities should be beneficial.
