To be a tester, i require that you
*Have linuxmce installed.
*Have the target hardware.
*are willing to spend some time giving feedback.
The software to be tested
*QOrbiter for Android x86 devices (all 2 of them?)
*QOrbiter for Android Tablets
*QOrbiter for Android Phones.
*QOrbiter for Kubuntu / ubuntu linux
There will be no standalone pi version as I plan to work on following phenigmas work on creating the MD.
All Android devices must be Android 3.0 or later. This even rules out my phone at the moment. The reason for this is that I cannot provide media playback to devices earlier than this...for now.
I will be asking you to test Qt4 and Qt5 variants for these platforms. The skins will be in various stages of complete, there will be tons of ui bugs. However I feel that it is at a point where it needs to start meeting real world people.
For linux machines, I would _prefer_ nvidia graphics cards or even intel. Not so much ATI but if you have ATI bring it. I have two ati boxes which are being a pain in the video acceleration department.
Lastly, this is NOT testing for putting QOrbiter as an MD.
Thanks for reading this and please only volunteer if you have the time. My main goal with this thrust is to get a more universal version on the Android market. People have very mixed results.
Releases can be found here:

*go into directory
** add -s for fullscreen
A note about linux version.
it will be in heavy flux over the next few weeks. I intend to add a setup.sh and some other things to make it smoother (especially on my bandwidth!) Right now all the skins and everything are all in one package.
*Now there is this for the setup scripts http://docs.langstonball.com/view/Setup/
*One is for preparing your core for android.
*One is for setting up qorbiter on an x86 based machine.
More coming soon as I bring other parts of the build factory online...
