Are you a cool Linux programmer with interest in developing Maemo support on Archos devices? Do you work for Nokia? You are welcome to contact and participate in the team to make it work as yet another OS to use with Archos official dual-booting image Archos Developper Edition Firmware.

You can discuss this in the forum:

    this is not maemo its mer its an alternative OS made by the maemo community to allow limited backwards compatibility for the old maemo tablets

    there is no point in this at all b/c the project went unfinished b/c the announcement of MeeGo changing things

    so now there is a mer^2 which will port MeeGo to older nokia maemo devices

    Check the forum thread, they have MeeGo booting on it also.

  • Craig

    MeeGo is the future theres a lot of new code and updates coming this month, we are even rumoured to be getting a reference UI/UX for smartphones/tablets this month too instead of just the command line.
    i would concentrate on MeeGo instead of Mer, or even join and contribute to Mer^2 and help getting MeeGo running on unsupported devices as more more MeeGo code is released, join frenode #meego or #maemo
