Porting is the modification of source code for existing applications so they can be compiled and run on another system. Porting is popular on the GP2X due to the large number of open source applications which are pre-written for other platforms (normally desktop Linux distributions, but also other systems such as the PSP or GP32). Porting can be as simple of remapping controls to suit the GP2X, or as complex as rewriting major parts of the application to replace hardware-specific code.

The operating system, SDL, and many other pieces of software on the GP2X are ports of software originally written for another platform.
