Virtual machine images are up (qemu and virtualbox). Also new N900 images (armhf and armel, armel is untested).

There are no changes on the N900 images, except that the repos now point to 'leste' and not 'kawai', since this rightfully confused some. ('kawai' is our name for testing, and no, it's not 'kawaii')

There's been some activity on the bugtracker, regarding gps, phone calls, and pulseaudio. I wonder what is the best way to coordinate between all interested parties. Maybe a mailing list?

Maybe someone can port and build 'extmou', so that cursors are visible in the virtual images: https://github.com/maemo-leste/bugtracker/issues/50

Is it possible to run these images on (high end) smartphones?

Sounds like the answer depends on: is that smartphone supported on mainline Linux ... So I guess quickest answer is No, at least not yet.
And of course the images provided are for specific devices, although you can build for other devices too

This is not a good idea, extmou was an ugly hack I invented to overcome the way mouse cursor is hidden in fremantle (by using an empty cursor). if one wants cursor in the VM or on device, all she needs is to install (or link) to the appropriate cursor theme.

With regards to extmou, would it be worth enumerating input devices in hildon-desktop and show/hide based on last input event?

Or better - enumerate input devices on such device added/removed and show the cursor if there is at least one device of type mouse.

EDIT: I think they did something similar in cordia, we can just reuse it.

EDIT2: this

Yeah, that's the one. Not 100% sure it worked correctly on my Cordia based port or if it made it in to the Fremantle-GTK3 version.

The Limbo app has even settings for the N800 and the N810

Edit: There are a lot of settings to choose from, couldn't get it to work

Is there also a Kernel and Initrd available?

Edit2: Ok got it to work using the amd64 build
I hope to see some arm builds will show up
