Raspberry Pi for X

Post by jockthejake » Sun, 13. Oct 19, 19:17

Hi everybody.
I was thinking that way back in the day I used to run X - The Threat on a 1 gig processor with less that 2 gig of ram.
The modern Raspberry Pi 4 run faster than that and have more onboard ram as well.
Now I'm no techie, so what I was wondering was if it would be possible, do you think, if the source code for the older, previous iterations of X could be compiled to let the ARM processor in a Pi 4 run it?
Please let me know whet the rest of the Community thinks. I personnaly think it would be a great thing to do as it would allow the older, but still very cool games to be run.
Thanks a lot.
Jock

".. it would allow the older, but still very cool games to be run." What makes you think that the older X games can't be run on modern systems any more?

If you just want a Pi solution for its own sake or as a technical challenge then that is more of an Off Topic discussion.
