its a great litle device whit hiden power
the specs
CPU: up to 333mhz
RAM: 32meg
Dram: 4meg
SCREEN: 480 x 272 pixel 16.77 million colors

so the DSL is a really goos OS choice for the psp its only 50meg and  dosent ask for lot of ram and cpu speed to make it work

will this be a good idea ?

It may sound like a good idea, but the chance of having it derived from DSL is almost 0%

I agree with hats except for the wiggle room in his probability. Since the PSP doesn't use i386 architecture, it *IS* 0%. NetBSD has a PS2 port, but I don't know yet about PSP.

If you feel like testing out something though, you can search around for uclinux ports such as < >

lucky13: I did not exclude the possibility of recompiled code (probably with hacks) for other arch's ... not too sure what you're pointing out.. (?)

i tryed uclinux it start well but it freeze wen it try to mount the hdd :(
i dont know about i386 stuff but i know that dosbox was ported for the psp and work realy well some people actualy installed win 3.11 and win 95 also mac os 7

i dont knoe about programing and stuff like that but im sure its possible ?

ho i almost forgot the new psp slim as 64meg of ram

Linux itself can be ported over (as it has been with ucLinux). The rest of what's in DSL can be recompiled for that particular architecture. But why should DSL make a specialty port/release for a device like that? It's already a lot of work keeping up with what DSL supports.

i dont know it will be a nice project its like why making a super small linux if its not to use whit small device ?
it dosent have the be 100% fonctional if a first realese is made and work people will start to get interest on it and start helping ?

aniway it was a sugesting its take it or leave it no one will dir because of that :P
