[maemo-users] Where to download WebOS games?

While I appreciate that most of the free/open-source SDL stuff on the Pre is
probably already available on the N900, I suspect that there may be
free/proprietary stuff that is worth exploring.  Also, for that matter, for
the simple task of testing, I'm even interested in trying apps that are
already ported.

So, as an example, I downloaded prefox, a port of fennec to the Pre.  It
appears to *almost* work.

Using preenv I get:

PDL: Application asked for calling path, giving './'
PDL: Application asked for calling path, giving './'
SDLGL: called sdl_init with flags = 0x220
X11: PID is 25084
PDL: Init: Service name is com.javispedro.preenv.prefox
SDLGL: Called SetVideoMode(800, 480, 0, 0x0)
SDLGL: Asked if video mode 800x480x16 (0x10000000) is ok
PDL: Set do_not_disturb flag to false
PDL: Screen dimming prevention OFF
./prefox: symbol lookup error:
 undefined symbol: PDL_GesturesEnable
