Pyra Linux and retro gaming machine

The Pyra is a follow up machine to the Pandora


This is the Pandora ( still available and very capable machine )
http://openpandora.org/


But the Pyra is coming along nicely.

Things are coming along nicely... This will be superb for on the go Amiga gaming just like the Pandora was/is .

OMAP 5? Urggggh. TI has completely dropped support for their SoC, so the Pyra is a sitting duck. Looks like I'll be skipping this one as well.

I seriously hope they're considering swapping it for another SoC.

This will (most likely) not happen. IIRC, it wasn't easy to find someone producing a small amount of SoCs at all.

Well... the good thing is the CPU is on a small separate board that plugs onto the main 8 layer board. So it can be changed etc at a later point.

It`s too late in the game to swap...
They`ve done their homework... have some talented people on board for drivers and OS development. So not to worry.
