Debian-openlogo-480.png Debian GNU/Linux

Debian is a universal operating system used on many embedded devices, servers and home computers. Using Debian on the FreeRunner gives access to the huge army of software packaged in the Debian repositories, already compiled for the Neo's ARM(v4) processor. Moreover, one can build one's own source files for programs without having to learn the OpenEmbedded way. For an existing Debian/Ubuntu user, choosing Debian for Neo FreeRunner makes phone a very familiar, trustworthy and flexible place to hack in.

General news:

  • Second Openmoko specific Linux 2.6.34 kernel is available. Highlights:
    • EXT4 support, UbiFS support
    • GPS suspend handling patch from Gennady Kupava
    • Jitterless touch patch
    • CONFIG_HZ=100
    • Miscellaneous configuration wishes fulfilled
