Debian on the FreeRunner

Published 2008-08-15 in sections English, Debian, Openmoko.

I’ve been at DebConf for almost two week, but haven’t blogged a lot about it. It’s mostly because we’ve been working on getting Debian to run on the OpenMoko FreeRunner. Today we finally sent out the official annoucement for this, because it seems that the installer script and packages seem to work so far.

Great thing about this is the sheer amount of software that’s now available on my phone. I already blogged about running Xmonad on it, and I have also ran my screen-message program, on it, as can be seen here. I only did minimal testing of the phone features, because it would be relatively expensive here in Argentinia with my German SIM card, but it seems to work as well.
