Hello everyone!

I have a question. I have just read about the yocto/poky projects and
here I am with a hope. :)

I have a nokia n800 (an internet tablet abandoned by Nokia just about
2 years ago).

With poky/yocto project tools, is it possible to install a linux
toolchain with X and the touchscreen/wireless components working, for
an example, in a SD Card and boot my device into it?

I'm anxious for that.

It looks like yocto already has support for the n800 - there's this
entry in local.conf:

# Other supported machines

#MACHINE ?= "nokia800"

and see this section in README.hardware:

'Nokia 770/N800/N810 Internet Tablets (nokia770 and nokia800)'

which says:

"The nokia800 images and kernel will run on both the N800 and N810"

Sounds like what you're looking for...
The rest of the config has been moved to meta-extras, and
we'd need to do a bit of kernel work, but it has worked in the past, and could work again in the future.

In other words 'I agree'.
