i'm interested in creating an OE build environment for the motorola e680/i linux smart phone and could use some advice.

both the qt-2.3.10 and opie-1.2.0 packages can be built (from scratch, see http://marcus.bluetroll.se/e680/) and run (somewhat) successfully on the phone using linux-ipaq-g++ as the platform specification, and i have tested binaries from h3600 opie_rootfs images (e.g ssh) and they work, so I am hoping that an ipaq machine/distro based build should be a good start.

The problem is the kernel version: the kernel on the phone (2.4.20) cannot be replaced w/o loosing the phones functionality, but the ipaq images (in bz2 format) that i can find seem to be for more recent kernels and a lot doesn't work.

The phone's kernel source is available from sf and ideally I'd like to create a build environment that is based on ipaq settings but builds with the specified kernel sources. Any advice would be most appreciated!

I'll give a 400G bar of Cadburies fruit and nut to the first person who can show a video clip of ZarPSX ACTUALLY REALLY UNFAKELY running on this phone.

On a more serious note, This sounds good. This could be a decent alternative to having to DIY a tuxphone.


I will provide random encouragement! And jokes about Bellringers.
