You will find all downloads related to this port on http://codex.xiaoka.com/pub/meego/streak/
See the README file for installation instructions.

NOTE: Most current port information is on Wiki: http://codex.xiaoka.com/wiki/streak:meego

Current status:
  1. booting Dell kernel release (2.6.29) configured for MeeGo
  2. working image of MeeGo trunk
  3. working MSM framebuffer console
  4. working USB Eth networking
  5. working WiFi connectivity
  • MSM X11 video driver crashes if xserver is running with root privileges
  • No MeeGo UI
  • No 3D acceleration
  • MeeGo ConnMan does not detect BCM4325 driver as WiFi capable


After booting plug the USB cable and issue the following commands (under Linux) to get shell access:
Code:
$ sudo ifconfig usb0 192.168.2.14 netmask 255.255.255.0
$ ssh root@192.168.2.15
root@192.168.2.15's password: meego
[root@localhost ~]#

Not to seem skeptic, but... that's it? I mean, I could probably make a bootscreen that looks like that... Could you tell us the source other than the Youtube video?

Taken from their site:

"MeeGo is an open source, Linux project which brings together the Moblin project, headed up by Intel, and Maemo, by Nokia, into a single open source activity. MeeGo integrates the experience and skills of two significant development ecosystems, versed in communications and computing technologies. The MeeGo project believes these two pillars form the technical foundations for next generation platforms and usages in the mobile and device platforms space."

So its Nokia's and Intel's rival to Google's Android using Linux....am I right? I've only just heard about meego myself

I've been working hard on porting Dell (Qisda) changes to Qualcomm android-msm-2.6.35 tree for last weeks and it finally paid out:
Code:
MeeGo release 1.0.90 (MeeGo)
Kernel 2.6.35-rc6+ on an armv7l

localhost login:
with working USB Ethernet gadget:
Code:
$ lsusb | grep Eth
Bus 001 Device 037: ID 0525:a4a2 Netchip Technology, Inc. Linux-USB Ethernet/RNDIS Gadget

$ dmesg | tail

          collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000 
          RX bytes:384 (384.0 B)  TX bytes:1528 (1.5 KB)
This should finally kickstart my MeeGo development. :)
