i have uploaded experimental QtMoko-v18 images. These images are based on 
2.6.32 linux kernel. They can be downloaded from:


The kernel was built from openmoko's git [1]. Kernel config and patches can be 
found here[2].

The images can be probably used as daily phone, but there some things that are 
still missing on not working correctly:

- X server and X apps: the touchscreen generates bogus events. E.g. when 
typing on virtual keyboard it often presses wrong keys. If you use X 
applications often, then i dont recomend this image yet.

- accelerometers: dont work - the driver has not been ported to 2.6.32 kernel 

- bluetooth: after supend/resume you have to go to dev settings and use "Power 
on bluetooth" manually to bring it back.

Otherwise the new kernel runs really nice. Bluetooth and accelerometers should 
be quite easy to fix. I dont know about the touchscreen in X. Any other distro 
that uses 2.6.32 kernel has X server all right?

If there are no other regressions i am thinking about making 2.6.32 kernel 
default for QtMoko.

Thanks to Lars and others on IRC for help!
