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

Personally I see systemd as a non issue. We are using upstart right now for compatibility/historical reasons, and until the startup stuff is untangled, we can definitely not switch to openrc or...

Re: My vision for the future of Maemo Fremantle

Perhaps I am not understanding what you mean (and I agree with the rest mostly), but this seems inverted to me - why would you take new bits and nail them onto the old base? Why not switch to a new...

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.

Re: Fremantle porting - getting organised

They are. They are providing (some) infra.



I think that will happen - but right now we need a few more weeks to get things in a better shape first. Then we'll make a detailed post/announcement...

Re: Fremantle porting - getting organised

We're making good progress. There's now a debian repo online that can be added to a devuan system. Then one can 'apt-get install hildon-desktop'. After making a few extra symlinks, the system will...

Re: Fremantle porting - getting organised

OK, so wifi works on the tablet. I hope to get mali/3d to work tonight.

Re: Fremantle porting - getting organised

I know a few people who work directly on Devuan, and they've also said they'd help out, so I think that'll be fine.

Re: interesting Neo900 audio thoughts/ideas

Re: Fremantle porting - getting organised

Fremantle porting - getting organised

TL;DR: Let's see if we can organise the maemo porting efforts a bit more to make
it easier for others to join and test/help-out/develop.

For some time I've been wanting to get Gentoo...
