I think nokia n8xx could be a nice example of what yocto/poky are capable of.
Especially now that Nokia has abandoned this devices, it would be cool to have a new OS being supported on it.
I'm new to poky, so, if you could make it easier to build the toochain to build it to a n800, me and many other n8xx owners would be quite happy.
The rest of the config has been moved to meta-extras, and

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)'
"The nokia800 images and kernel will run on both the N800 and N810"
Sounds like what you're looking for...
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'.
