Hello again!

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.
Yes, I agree.

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
Right, it doesn't seem to be working out of the box - I'll take a look
and see if we can't rescue it from meta-extras...

BTW, I'd actually like to have one of these for myself - can you suggest
a source for them other than eBay?

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

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'.
