Doom on the iPod?

The Register is reporting on the iPod linux project and a developer “Kyle” there that has made Doom run on the platform. It gets a painful 3-4 frames per second. One of the next goals is to scale the video to the iPod display and get sound working.

I hadn’t come across ipodlinux before. It looks like it should work on 1st, 2nd and 3rd gen ipods. With just the scroll wheel for input this seems like it would be really frustrating though. They’ve come up with a userinterface (podzilla) that should make life simpler. It looks as though podzilla allows playing of music files, plus a list of games, file browser, image viewer, and a few other things. I guess if you’re bored with just playing music on your ipod this may be something to try?
