First of all I have to say that I am quiet new to all this, so I could be asking stupid questions.
Hope you all are willing to forgive me wink.gif

My main question is quiet simple actually:
Would it be possible (or is it already possible) to run a full OPIE or GPE "install" on the Nokia 770?
If it isn't (yet) possible, what is the reason for it and will it ever be possible?

Opie is not yet ready for the 770, but there is a gpe image somewhere...

Do you mean the Ångström based GPE-image?

Or the regular OpenEmbedded based GPE-image?

I have not found any experiences or images of both, so I don't know if (and how well) they work.

Just to understand things right:
Opie or GPE are something like GNOME or KDE right?
Ie consisting of a separate window manager, theme engine and a set of applications?

How does the (x-)window-server fit in?

And the stock Nokia 770 runs:
- Which window-server ???
- Matchbox window-manager (http://projects.o-hand.com/matchbox/)
- Sapwood: GTK+ theme engine (how does this relate to the window-manager?
