First instance of 'What have I done for the N8x0's lately'

So, this is a new series of blog series on what I've done for the N8x0's lately. So people better see what I've actually tried to do for the owners of these devices.

* I've spent a lot of time with the MBX 3d driver to try to get it in good shape and set up gitorious repo for it and forward ported it to 2.6.33. At the current stage,
* Started a page for the MeeGo N8x0 hardware adaptation team and added plans/milestones
* Working on stabilising MeeGo N8x0 startup, building Xomap for it. I have it running with Xfce4 on my device and hope to show it after 1.0 release.
* Worked with tmr to try and get DSP working on 2.6.33 for N8x0. He forward ported the patches himself.

These are fairly technical things, but should hopefully manifest in actual benefits sooner or later.


  1. Hi Carsten

    It it very good to hear just that. After feeling left behing when Mer was dismantled... learning that the MeeGo project for N8x0 is finally under way, is plain cool. I really find no reason to upgrade my trusty N800 hardware-wise. But a refresh to the aging OS would be certainly welcome.

    Also, going eventually into something Qt-based is certainly a plus. I just can't wait to play with this,

    All the best

  2. When will MeeGo for the N810 come out???
