If you want to start doing that, take a look at these pages. I'm sure that the Debian mobile folks will be happy to help guide you with this. http://mentors.debian.net/intro-maintainers https://wiki.debian.org/Mobile > iirc there is/was work going on in that direction. At one point the Hildon stuff was in Debian but it got removed because it became clear that it did not have a future upstream since Nokia was dropping it. Now some things like 0xffff are in Debian but not much else. In particular I don't think that Debian has a version of Linux that can run on the N900 yet, same for GTA02/GTA04. Probably the same for bootloaders etc. There is some info about how different Maemo (all versions) is from Debian in these files: http://dex.alioth.debian.org/census/Maemo/sources.new http://dex.alioth.debian.org/census/Maemo/sources.patches http://dex.alioth.debian.org/census/Maemo/patches/ These are derived from this data: https://wiki.debian.org/Derivatives/Census/Maemo If there is anyone from the Maemo community interested in being the contact point for maintaining this info, I get the impression that Jeremiah is no longer involved in Maemo so it would be great to have a replacement for him. https://wiki.debian.org/Derivatives/Census https://wiki.debian.org/DerivativesFrontDesk -- bye, pabs http://wiki.debian.org/PaulWise _______________________________________________ Openmoko community mailing list email@example.com http://lists.openmoko.org/mailman/listinfo/community
