We now have dists available for the N950 and N9 running Linux 4.16.4 from linux-stable. More info here (will write this up on the wiki soon). N9 is untested so I'm hoping for a guinea pig to try it out. The N9 port is mostly identical to the N950 port which has been tested. There is no virtual keyboard yet but Hildon is currently unusable anyway (other window managers work fine). I'm hoping someone else can help to get this working so I can focus on other stuff. USB networking works fine out-of-the-box (see the linked GitHub issue for info on how to set up the PC side in Linux).

A very important question: how do you pronounce Leste? "Les-teh" or "less tea"?

Continuing on the wind theme, I like it.

Your link does not answer the question explicitly but gives a locale that at least suggests the answer. That's good enough for me, thanks.

wellllll....
I have been mucking about with my latest acquisition ..a nexus 5...
As far as what I think of it...
Def. one of the better smartphones I have had in my hands (no compare to the nxx0's of course...) ..
I have virtually no additional apps installed.
Updated to droid 5.1
rooted of course..
crap bloat I would never use I have uninstalled back to the stock apps...cleared the caches...
and only 3 things I do NOT like...
1- it's running android.
2- it's running android ....nono...actually ..I do NOT like the fact it has no sd card slot. ...sure I can do usb storage on the go ...but crap sticking out of a phone dangling around like some ganglia doesn't impress me .
and hence ...with no sd slot..so goes options to move apps to sd card with it.
3- the result of #2...is that 16 gb is all fine and dandy to have..internally..
but to have 2 gb of ram of which 1.5+ gb is consumed by the system and stock and a couple apps...does NOT impress me at all...
what a colossal waste.

Wicket hope you can get Leste workin' on your nexus 5...
Reason I got mine was it is one of the few devices open enough to do some experimenting with alt. os's (which obviously is why wicket got his)
Hope it works man...
Otherwise I will go down the plasma road...
I am not keen on SF...
there is just too much goin' on there politically that I do not run with..
let alone the closed nature of their endeavor.

I totally agree. I am using the nexus 5 with SF and I'm happy with it. You can use the whole screen without any additional bar like on Android, the screen and the brightness are really good.
You can also try Ubuntu from UBports on it.

thanks for that claustn...
actually buntu would be my 3rd choice (due to wif and sim and volume bugs)
after my 2nd choice of plasma (which seems to have really only 1 sticking point for me...the "getting wifi to run" issue...if I can get it to run on plasma on the nexus 5 ...well ...hell...I won't complain...)
after my primary choice of Leste (of course)...
So yeah...that is the plan anyway...
If one fails...
I have a few options with escalating buggy issues on the way down that slippery slide to the iphone...
hahahahahaha

My interest in the Nexus 5 piqued when I found out that someone got calls working on it with mainline Linux shortly after Droid 4 calls started working (probably no coincidence that both devices use an MSM modem). The Nexus 5 is one of the devices that has reasonably mature mainline Linux support which makes it a great target for Maemo Leste. I haven't really done anything with mine yet other than boot the test image found here. The display comes up and USB networking works which is a great starting point for porting Leste so I don't envisage any huge difficulties in getting something basic up and running. I'm looking forward to trying video acceleration which should automatically work out-of-the-box thanks to Freedreno/Mesa. The Nexus 5 port isn't my immediate priority but I'll try to get to it soon.

Has anyone tried the N9 port yet? I'd love to get some feedback.
