While usable, it was a bit on the slow side (webOS is 320x480x32 while the N900 is 800x480x16 so there was scaling and color conversion), and NDK apps didn't work. And the method I used will not work for more recent versions.

But still doable.
This is brilliant..first NITDroid, then Meego & now WebOS..the N900 is simply not gonna die so easily...

All of the stuff I developed to run it has been available since long ago in my Gitorious repo, at https://gitorious.org/preenv/libx11fb. Nobody asked what was that for

You will need to build this library, make a ext3 partition, put 1.4.5 on it, put a copy of libx11fb.so in / inside that partition; outside the chroot, run x11fbd -w 320 -h 480, inside the chroot, run the following script:
Code:
export LD_PRELOAD=/libx11fb.so

rm -f /var/run/dbus/pid
dbus-daemon --system --fork
dbus-daemon --session --fork

sleep 1

hidd &
java-serviceboot start &
luna-prefs-service &
BrowserServer &
PmNetConfigManager &
nappmgr &
fileindexer &
extractfs -f /var/luna/data/extractfs &

sleep 3

LunaSysService &
LunaSysMgr &
Boot takes around 80 seconds.



Note that I did this in virtually four days and nearly a year ago. I did it because after that webos on HTC fake news story from XDADevs I wanted to have something to be able to laugh in their faces, but after demoing it on Dublin Meego summit and running it for a while I mostly forgot about the entire thing (and actually never did the laugh in their faces part :P ).

Maybe on the N950 with MT and faster graphics it has more sense.

@javispedro or any member
can you post a tutorial on how to install this on the internal memory or on a sd?
for noobs?
And do i have to uninstall nitdroid for it?

why not making a wiki for this that shows the compatibility and whats working and not and provides people with all the informations neede.


i hope that calls are working.

thx

anyone got this installed by now?
except javispedro?

if so please post a video show more of it features.

this needs to be handled with more importance.

@javispedro
open a main thread for this (like the grand nitdroid thread)
that provides users with all informations of this and where people can discuss about it?

Maemo is still my favourite platform and thus I have no intentions to further continue this -- you can either try it for the curiosity, or if you want to open a new thread to further develop it feel free.

I'll answer questions but not work on it. Someday I'll might try 2.0 on the N950.

It runs along Maemo. You can press Shift+Backspace and you get back to Hildon.
