Cool :-) Obviously I've missed a couple of episodes because I thought we were still stuck in the state described here. Do you have a pointer to something describing the current situation, especially what bits are still missing?

and me:

Any takers to start a MeeGo hardware adaptation for N8x0?

and then lma:

Definitely interested (though I'm not a kernel hacker), where do we start?

So, this is a thread on starting work on a hardware adaptation for Nokia N8x0. (http://meego.com/developers/hardware-enabling-process). While I doubt we can be a first quality port due to need to upstream patches, we can try things and see how far we can get.

A starter is to grab the current kernel package from http://repo.meego.com/MeeGo/devel/tr....1-8.2.src.rpm , modify this with Termana and luke-jr's patches.

If we ask nicely, I think it should be possible to get repackaging done through my distmaster position so we can get the different firmwares, BME, etc provided through similar means (RPM repository) as tablets-dev.nokia.com does with the MeeGo on N900 things. So, we have a good start.

We can probably start with the chroot images (tar.gz) for N900 as they are fairly generic and the kickstart files.
