First I tried the linux-android-goldfish_2.6.23-rc20 package supplied with poky. This results in a never ending red bouncing ball during startup. Then I tried to follow the instructions in the blogs as literally as possible. That's why I used Angstrom and patched the kernel as described. The results are the same unfortunately.

The log messages are:
CODE
binder_open(c2de76c8 c03ab9c0) (pid 1392) got c31360000
+++ post-zygote
binder_open(c2de76c8 c03ab9c0) (pid 1392) got c0f34000
******* NO FRAMEBUFFER VSYNC WAIT IOCTL *******
Prepping:
...
Prep complete

If someone has any clue how to solve this, please share!

Finally, I've been able to get this thing working. The speed is incredible, really, I didn't expect any Java based OS could be that responsive! For instance, system (OS) startup takes 27 seconds. Browser startup takes 6 seconds

I will upload a working version shortly. I'm thinking about making two different versions. Version one being a complete dedicated android-distro, and version two especially for the people using some-2.6.23 distro (debian, poky, angstrom) already (just an archive file).

On a working debian-2.6.23 distro it's quite easy actually. The instructions here are correct and complete. Make sure to extract the ramdisk.img, system.tar and data.tar in /home/root/android-root. Use the binder module as described here and make sure to set the correct permissions on /dev/binder using chmod 666 /dev/binder
