I have been following the Android scene here pretty regularly but the os I have always really wanted is a full fledged Linux. I heard about, and wanted a N900 because of Maemo but I'm too poor to buy one
. I then heard about the Mer project https://wiki.maemo.org/Mer
to port Maemo to other devices and saw it booted on the kaiser http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=565480
. On page two of that thread it is stated that someone (Mdrobnak) got it up and running pretty well on his Fuze with a couple tweaks to Xorg.conf, the kernel, and to the splash screen (resized to 640x480). I've been working over the past few days on getting it to start on my fuze but haret keeps giving errors about pc_clk_disable. I resized the splash, changed Xorg.conf to be 640x480 and did the rest of the directions on the Kaiser thread, but no luck. I would love to get a port of this going, as being able to use ~95% of Ubuntu packages working on my phone would be awesome. I wasn't quite sure how to patch the kernel; that would be the zImage, right? Any suggestions?
I'm going to be on #mer and #htc-linux irc on freenode quite a bit until we get this working well if anyone wants to discuss things, not that I can contribute much.
Would it be possible to create a rootfs.img file similar to how XDANDROID does it for people too lazy to partition their card or just plain suck like me?
