Guys, just by the way (maybe that will be useful for 'practical' use and if somebody have not noticed yet):
export DISPLAY=8.8.8.8:0 (with mounting some, when necessary, system folders) gives nice use of those arm-compiled Linuxes under Maemo with plenty of different applications running (with GUI) quite nice :-)

p.s.

Some additional tips on KDE RAM usage:

P.S. I wouldn't recommend using n900-installer right now because there are still no stable kernels and I'm still busy to continue searching a way to make one.

I had sucess building the Meego-Kernel with SHR (OE-Core). You might consider this, since it does make you a nice package for modules, too. I suggest to apply "DTO=14"-Patch and enable Thumb-Errata-Fix. That should give you a stable Kernel to work with.

or simply this:

I tried another method to build a kernel package with make-kpkg.

While cross-compiling it did show some x86-arch warnings but the packages seem to be arm allright but not sure it is really ok.

Newer Upload: http://talk.maemo.org/showpost.php?p...&postcount=151

Package:
http://depositfiles.com/files/hsfcaxaro
(md5sum: 6ab2dd7751cc4355a738e5f35de25939 n900-kernel-with-dto14-patch-v2.tar.gz)

I included a uImage and the kernel-config I used and of course the dto=14 patch was applied on source.

Modified source according to this Patch: http://www.mail-archive.com/linux-om.../msg64033.html

Booted Kernel on n900 no problem. If package doesn't install you can unpack the .deb and still get the modules. In that case you might find "depmod -a" usefull to load modules.

Code:
make-kpkg --rootcmd=fakeroot --revision=0 \
   --append-to-version=-custom --arch=armel \
   --cross-compile=/usr/bin/arm-linux-gnueabihf- kernel-image kernel_headers modules --initrd
(--arch=armel seems to be wrong or did someone manage to install it? it probably should be --arch=armhf but that didn't work for me. If I use new ubuntu or something from linaro maybe?)

Have fun!

About the Ubuntu script, you don't really need to extract the Firmware from a Image.

These Links should be enough:

Wifi
https://api.pub.meego.com/public/sou...a4ed04eafab64&

Camera
https://api.pub.meego.com/public/sou...506b6c87e2df4&

Bluetooth
https://api.pub.meego.com/public/sou...66a8586150470&
(For some reason the archive isn't right. I renamed it to .7z to get it to extract + read makefile inside the firmware itself needs to be renamed)

That should be pretty much all.

there are several issues with the script, among the most obvious :

1) there is problem with the line "--no-log" as dialog can't use "--" in the text field, it tries to read it as an argument, so the resulting u-boot script is not correctly written.

2) packages from nemo are not copied to /mnt/tmp/ as the directory doesn't exist at the time the script attempts the operation.

3) the script executes bash even if a non custom kernel (nemo) is selected, and the user is not prompted that he needs to type "exit" to continue.

4) if the user chooses the old ubuntu kernel, the resulting uInitrd is corrupt , u-boot will stop booting because of this.

you can easily fix the script..

1) find and replace (--no-log) with ("-"\- "--no-log") without the brackets of course.

2) add the line: "mkdir $MOUNTPOINT_TARGET/tmp/" right before the line with "# Downloading", without quotes.

3) just type exit when the script prints "Install your custom..." to continue

4) the ubuntu kernel can be booted without the initrd, create the boot script manually without loading the uInitrd file, or just use nemo kernel, it doesn't matter much as both are unstable.
