Hi,
there is a new distribution / flash image for the Openmoko Freerunner, called "FDOM".
It is based on the OM base system but adds and fixes applications so that it makes the FR a completely useable phone.

Oh my gosh, this is becoming too stupid. Why yet ANOTHER distribution? Wouldn't their "skills" be a better help if they were to actually contribute to the current distro?

I have not tried FDOM myself but from reading what it is, it is everything but not ANOTHER (i.e. from scratch) distribution. It is a combination of what already exists. And it is based on the "current distro". Just a package that combines already existing things so that right after installation, users have a working set of applications.

Appears very intelligent to me to do so.
