Gareth, perhaps you know this, but there is now a more standard "desktoplike" version of debian for the N8X0 series called "easy debian" that eliminates the pain and limitations of Maemo/Hildon. I just installed it (very easy to do) and it looks great. It's optimized for the ARM processor on the tablet, and uses the LXDE desktop environment (even comes with Firefox 3 and Open Office).

To find it, google "*Easy Debian Turbo-Charged Edition"*

Correct me if I'm wrong, but using this would eliminate the need to "hildon-ize" Paparazzi. Of course, we'd still need armel versions of the Paparazzi dev and arm7 dependencies.

Hello all

I am currently in the early stages of porting the main parts of gcs to armel along with packaging for debian lenny. I've got xmllight and ivy-c built up,but am having serious problems with ivy-ocaml, as the makefile specs the native compiler (which doesn't exist for armel). I have no experience with ocaml,and dropping in ocamlc doesn't work.

I am carrying out this port in order to ultimately run gcs on nokia n8*0 devices using maemo. I believe that it could prove to be an excellent ground station device. Once ported, the next step would be to 'hildonise' the interface slightly to make it more finger-friendly.

Further ideas I've had involve wimax and the internal gps...

Comments,suggestions,ideas and reasons this is stupid and won't work are all welcome!
