Some years ago I tried Debian and I think it would be the best environment if you don't want to use the gsm. Qtmoko runs over Debian as well.

By the way I am going to resume my freerunner as well: I'd like to use it as a car navigator with navit. So please let us know how it goes 😊

still there, but i think it's fair to say it's abandoned. The last versions were as good as it got on the freerunner IMO, but the main (pretty much single) developer got fed up with not having a decent kernel even after x years.

>shr: abandoned ?

the later versions were hopelessly broken and unusable on the freerunner.

>hackable1: disappeared (I have good memories of that one ;) )
yeah probably; anyway I'd definitely recommend qtmoko as the best bet
