Maemo 5 is an opensource system, is it hard to recompile it for ARM 6? Bypassing opengl is not a hard task anyway.

Maemo 5 is not entirely open source. It has some closed source drivers, and low level stuff, which is Nokia proprietary. Will they release the code now, in light of MeeGo, who knows. It is always possible to take whatever is free, and put that on top of Maemo 4, but we already have Mer.

Any news in Maemo5 for N810? I have come to point, where I would like to reflash whole device, clean up all stuff that has gathered for years, as I have less than 10Mb left on system memory, not possible to install new apps. Thinking about hacking up, making /var mount into mmc1, making possible to use that >1Gb for apps.
I'm thinking, if there is anything newer/better/faster than OS2008, without sacrificing performance (already now, it is hard to watch video clips/movies, with that image stuttering, caused by CPU overuse).
If Maemo5 is ment for N900, which is almost three times powerful, it could considerably slow down my N810.

@Deele, look for diablo turbo, it doesn't do miracles but it improves performance in some cases.

Not much more that can be done, but as Luca suggests install the diabloturbo packages for a useful improvement in response.

Also, if you have not alreadey install telescope for a maemo5 style task switcher, and diablo5 theme for a maemo5 style theme.

with these three, my N810 is not far of my N900 for most websites etc. it will always stutter and lag playing video. mplayer will help here, as will switching to offline mode and closing all other apps first.. Doing all of this means my N810 will playh mostg dvd movies whivh have been ripped to fit on a cd.
