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?
Let me chip in with some information here. Poky used to support the n800
machine semi-officially and it ran sato quite well including the wiki
and touchscreen. The problem has been that the xserver and kernel
recipes were not updated, Poky moved on and these older versions no
longer worked/interacted well. For this reason, the machine was moved to
meta-extras as it no longer worked.

I know its possible to make it work again and there shouldn't be massive
amounts of effort needed. If someone does step up and fixes it up and
agrees to maintain it, the machine can come back. It is going to need
someone to give it some TLC though.
