I've recently been playing with Linux on the Nintendo Gamecube (http://www.gc-linux.org/wiki/Main_Page).
So I was thinking of running DOSbox on that. I haven't got time to do it this week (exams going on), so this is speculative... I just wanted to ask for general thoughts. It shouldn't be a problem - you can run a fairly standard Debian system on the 'cube, which has SDL for video and sound (no X, usually, though that *can* be done, I believe). It doesn't have much RAM (24 MB, plus 16 MB very fast swap), but if the Linux system is sufficiently stripped down it should be possible to spare 8 MB or so for some older games. The CPU is quite slow - it's a ~500 MHz PowerPC, so this would only be for some really old, 286 or 386-era games.
But my main question is: Any ideas on how to make DOSbox controllable by the gamecube's controllers? Several other apps do it (mplayer and SNES9x) so it's possible, though I don't know what the details are.
As I said, there's little useful info here - I'm hoping to kick off some discussion on how to make this go, see if maybe someone else has tried.
