Well, I saw a question on that page, asking if Bionic and GlibC can coexist.. Well it does! I did it on Desire, but it has nothing special about Desire (maybe recovery scripts do need some editing, not sure).

If the developer of MeeGo is still around (or anyone interested in project), please contact me - I'm very keen on this stuff lately ;)

Thanks you! You've done a really incredible job!
I'm still interested in MeeGo - but in other ways: I tried to port the MeeGo successor "Mer" (the community project) to the device and use Plasma Active as UI. It's still a long way before it's running but your post will really help ;)

    So, yeah, for those who like ramming their heads against a wall, a guide!

    This doesn't work. At all. But it's easy to have it not work, at least. So, only if you want to dev this, here's what you need:

    Debian zImage, any and all pretty much work.
    Meego MMC image.

    Mount the SD card on your device.

    Alright, in your happy linux install, back up your SD card in as many ways as possible.

    sudo dd bs=4096 if=/dev/sdX of=imageback.img
    Where X is the id of your phone's SD card.

    Then, you want to put the meego image on your sdcard.

    sudo dd bs=4096 if=<wherever it's downloaded>/meego-n900-open-armv7l-1.0.0.20100525.1-sda.raw of=/dev/sdX

    Then, once that's done,

    adb reboot bootloader
    fastboot -c 'root=/dev/mmcblk0p1 rw rootfs=ext2 init=/sbin/init rootwait noinitrd' boot zImage

    Seriously, that's all. :)
