The 2 biggest missing pieces of the Neo900 software stack from a Maemo point of view are A.The pulseaudio blobs (pulseaudio-modules-nokia-*) which need to be reverse engineered and cloned (work has been done on them but it isn't finished as far as I know) and B.A replacement for the cellular services daemon that talks the same dbus interfaces as the stock cellular services daemon (it will likely be FAR easier to reverse engineer the dbus interfaces and replace the daemon than it will to reverse engineer the ISI stuff and write a translation layer).

If I had any spare time (I dont) I would try and do more to contribute to this work (cellular services daemon specifically)

Hello,

I understand that setting up a complete build environment for maemo based only on FOSS (and actually compiling maemo from scratch) is something that is needed for some time now.

I'm now at the very first steps with this. Is anybody else looking into it and/or wants to work on it as well?

Pan

Well...No "trying" left...
I'm done.
welllll... as done as I can be.
What I managed is about as flexible as it will ever get for a live current update-able distributable rolling release....
It will hopefully also be available in antiX 15 when they are done with their Beta testing...and Bodhi as well when likewise they settle into their new release...
..as well it is flexible in the sense that it is for the 770, n800, n810, n900...
It is distributable up to 4gb.
After that any live distributable medium is awkward, difficult, pitas, you choose the colourful expletive. Hence the need to employ .sblive formats to work around that.
ie- burn the altered "maemo32" distro to a flash drive (for example) ..from there ...burn it (or keep it on a large enough flash drive) to where desired...enlarge the partition to at least a recommended 32 gb...start the easy installs via esbox of scratch, sdks, binaries as is mentioned in the thread and the enclosed instructions.
This method doesn't get any easier....even for a layman with no experience with linux ...let alone maemo...can manage it.
I'm not going to write pages here though...
(I'm sure many are breathing a sigh of relief of that )
I'd suggest going to said thread misiak suggested and continuing there.

Sorry, I've been trying to catch-up on two years of threads/changes in Maemo so I apologize if I'm missing this in the threads.

Is the live distro you put together basically http://wiki.maemo.org/Documentation/...K_Installation with additional IDEs and learning environments?

By binaries, do you mean the Nokia binaries (from the SDK instructions), or in the more general compiled program sense from apt-get? (Is there a dump of packages, either an apt-get line or a dpkg -l from the live image to make it easier to recreate rather than use the live image?)

As I mentioned...
I'd rather not tie up this thread by cross-threading? ...wow..we are almost knitting and crocheting here
Explaining here what is already explained there...and at great length to avoid confusion and be as thorough as possible too ...I might add.
If it doesn't meet an individuals particular needs...you are quite welcome to change it.
I made it to be as plug and go, as simple, as easy as possible for new members and old alike.
preinstalled and ready to run is esbox with all it's plugins ..as well as other games and tools ..for new people to development,
via esbox..literally a couple clicks and scratch is installed..a couple clicks your sdk is installed...etc.
It doesn't get more convenient and easy.
also there is help guides and tutorials at an easy click of a button away.
Download the folder...try it out.
read the thread "there" you are asking "here" ...about.
read the basic intructions and suggestions in the downloadable file folder...
Burn it to a live medium appliance...sd card, flash stick, dvd..make back-up copies for storage..
put it wherever you want...
enlarge said partition...
have fun.
[I] won't be answering anymore posts "here" for what should be asked "there" out of some modicum of polite etiquette to these guys hard at work here.
Bog up my thread instead

Some news: I was able to get both cameras working with linux 4.6-rc1. There is a long way until they are usable in camera-ui, but nevertheless it is still a progress.

EDIT: And yes, there is a SIM card in the device, albeit disabled by the operator
