Re: Maemo-Leste pre-alpha announcement

There is now a mediawiki, thanks to parazyd: https://leste.maemo.org/Main_Page

There were lots of people who wanted to add bits to the wiki - there is absolutely no structure yet, so let's get...

If you "apt-get update && apt-get upgrade mce" you will have mce on droid4 with backlight/brightness support. I also locally have mce where the power button (top of the phone) is mapped to screen...

Re: Maemo-Leste pre-alpha announcement

The status-area-applet-battery initial port is pretty much done. [0]
Pending a N900 kernel bug it should start to work nicely. [1]

It has been ported to use UPower, one missing feature right now...

Re: Maemo-Leste pre-alpha announcement

So we can have a functional Maemo Leste with some blobs, and then with Maemo Libre™ being a deblobbed version of Maemo Leste? ;)

Agreed on the whole base discussion. We have similar...

Re: Maemo-Leste pre-alpha announcement

Virtual machine images are up (qemu and virtualbox). Also new N900 images (armhf and armel, armel is untested).

There are no changes on the N900 images, except that the repos now point to 'leste'...

Re: Fremantle porting - getting organised

One side note is that "zram" might help a little: https://www.kernel.org/doc/Documentation/blockdev/zram.txt

Re: Maemo-Leste pre-alpha announcement

The actual packages also work on Allwinner ARM devices (apart from some device specific features in mce, but those can be ported/fixed), so we are already not necessarily dependent on omap.

Re: Maemo-Leste pre-alpha announcement

Regarding an SDK, we usually just build natively on the arch we like to work on (amd64 for freemangordon, I usually work on armhf since my laptop in armhf)

Maemo-Leste pre-alpha announcement

Hi,

We're happy to let you know about the pre-alpha release of "Maemo Leste" - an attempt to port/run large parts/bits from Fremantle on the latest stable Devuan/Debian.

There are currently...

Re: Graphics drivers on the N900 - my notes

One thing to note is that, as far as I know, if we would switch to omapdrmfb, we should abandon the fbdev driver. Replacing it with xf86-video-modesetting or something similar (which is now part of...

Re: My vision for the future of Maemo Fremantle

Re: Fremantle porting - getting organised

The idea is to take as much as we can from fremantle. And then make that run on a modern 'base'. In this case: devuan/debian.

That means that you should be able to run this devuan/debian on your...
