The externals in extra won't work with PDa. Thats why it is not

Yes, but does run Linux on that ?
If not you would have to compile it fro WinCE.

I used 0.33 PATCH 1

Yes, use integer math for signal processing, some macros are in
m_fixed.h. ( mult(a,b) instead of a*b,  idiv(a,b) instead of /, .... )

Use ftofix() in order to convert message parameters to fix point values
etc ..

If you get something to run, please report back.

change wm maxsize in ../bin/pd.tk
