    Phoronix: Intel, Nokia's MeeGo Linux Hits Version 1.0

    Back in February, the Moblin and Maemo projects from Intel and Nokia, respectively, made love and out came MeeGo. The two industry players had joined forces to come up with what they feel is the best Linux platform for mobile devices ranging from netbooks to in-vehicle information systems. Version 1.0 of the MeeGo Core Software Platform has been released today...

    it is possible to run MeeGo - without the hardware restrictions which make trouble for virtualizers - in qemu:

    Meego 1.0 (kernel 2.6.33.3-11.1-netbook), image size: 787 MB (extracted: 2.5 GB)

    MeeGo 0.9 (kernel 2.6.33.3-8.1-iv), image size: 282.3 MB (extracted: 1.2 GB) - with XFCE4

    Got the Vbox driver installed, X11 works, OpenGL works... Meego doesn't. Looks like it's relying on some non-standard extension or something.

    I had another go and pressing F8 at boot allowed me to get into the OS as single-user; I'll see if I can get a driver built and installed since there's no gcc or kernel headers by default.

    I think that's the article which says he did it but doesn't give any indication of how.

    Maybe just maybe it has something to do with this:
    3D support: added OpenGL 2.1 support
    Meego needs 3d or it won't work.
    That's what I meant; I suspect that if I could install a Virtualbox driver which supports 3D rendering it would work. Or perhaps it's doing something nasty with the Intel graphics chips directly which it still won't support on a non-Intel driver.

    It seems to be that it requires intel graphics card as well.(no gma500, ati, nvidia, s3, via etc.)
    Someone mentioned ALT+F1 but it didn't seem to do anything . I assumed they meant CTRL+ALT+F1 to switch to a different virtual terminal, but that's intercepted by the host operating system and not passed through to the emulator.

    I'm guessing that if I could get a usable video driver in there it would probably work, but perhaps they have hard-coded the launcher for Intel graphics.

    You need to enable PAE for the installer to run, but it won't then boot after it's installed... the chroot process looks way too complex to bother with just for testing it out.
