    i mean... yes, but we're working at bare-metal on the 3DS, not the DS, so the ARM11 is involved, not the ARM7.

    Some things are only accessible from one or the other processor, like the WiFi SoC or the SD card.

    'tis a mess.

    Hi,
    I'm using a N3DS XL and got it to work, and Weston is rotated in Landscape, but my mouse only moves around. No clicking. Tried the left/right trigger, and pretty much every other button on the device. What do I do? (Trying to click on weston-terminal)

    (EDIT: I now see that it's a bug that's being fixed, right?)

    This is a super-old version. Please download the latest tester12 package and, if desired, create your own buildroot package to add your own programs at (again) the repo linked above.

    But, yes, the mouse is broken. Most can't even get mouse mode to activate at all.

    I wish I have some knowledge to help... The only thing I can do is 'beta test' versions...

    Yeah, true. We're also modding Linux to actually do more than boot though xD

    good place to start though

    If you're using a build posted by me, Weston has been entirely removed. If you're using Xerpi's build, it's because the mouse mode doesn't work.

    Also wanted to add that I wouldn't bother trying to get a DE running on the 3DS. As it's not really useful for that purpose. This linux port would be killer with something like GmenuNX. (Which runs on those cheap dingux handhelds that keep releasing.) This would make the 3DS the fastest (by a wide margin) and highest quality dingux handheld available. It's designed for low res screens like the 3DS's too. Some screenshots (you can change the theme/the default is kinda ugly):

    SD R/W bug fixed (hopefully) but new versions of buildroot break patches, so it's either kernel 4.20.x and a semi-working build or kernel 5.0.x (kernel version that SD fix was made against and needs) and a failed build. Looking into possibly switching away from buildroot.

    (I also have a new dedicated build setup, so build time went from 6 hours to 1.5 hours max, so updates should be slightly faster)
