I work and Nokia and am a Fedora user, if you have anything
interesting I could try :)
We try to be as close as possible to linux-omap upstream, but there
are still some missing pieces AFAIK.
I have a Nokia N810 at hand (OMAP2 / ARMv6); while it's not quite what
Ubuntu and Nokia are targeting (9.04 and Maemo 5 targets ARMv7), it'll
be interesting to see how well Fedora runs on it. I'd have to get a
larger SDHC card, read up on how to boot the device from it (as far as
I remember, not that troublesome), and work out what binary blobs are
Having a real ARMv7 device would be much better, though. Does Nokia
provide those to developers, and would they lend development boards
(even remote access would be better than nothing) for non-Maemo use?
