Ubuntu on Freerunner a new era

ubuntu

Hi folks πŸ™‚

Maybe you still don’t know, but ubuntu will support ARMel from Jaunty. Well and what is the most hacked device of the year? the Openmoko Freerunner!

Well. but what is the relationship between ubuntu and ARM? It’s that the Freerunner uses an ARM9 @ 400 MHz processor… So, with a little bit of work, Ubuntu will be available for Freerunner too! πŸ™‚

I’m starting documenting about how to build a rootfs and how to make it jffs2, and it seems easy. What is my project?

Imagine a phone, with all the fso framework to act as a phone and with a full ubuntu backend. Could you imagine the power? πŸ™‚

I think i can accomplish this thank to my accepted mentoring by a MOTU and my position as an ingeneer at eshopen, the italian Openmoko Freerunner seller.

In late March we should be able to release the first image… stay tuned!
