    Default Intel, Nokia's MeeGo Linux Hits Version 1.0

    Phoronix: Intel, Nokia's MeeGo Linux Hits Version 1.0

    Back in February, the Moblin and Maemo projects from Intel and Nokia, respectively, made love and out came MeeGo. The two industry players had joined forces to come up with what they feel is the best Linux platform for mobile devices ranging from netbooks to in-vehicle information systems. Version 1.0 of the MeeGo Core Software Platform has been released today...

    cool.

    I doubt it'll work, but I'll see if it can be run on VirtualBox.

    oh, it'll need SSSE3, so it's pretty much Intel only. No sense in testing on an AMD CPU then

    Unless it's a late-model Athlon-64 or newer, no.

    Uh... SSE3? Considering that there's a version of this for N900 (which happens to be a ARM Cortex-A8 based system...) I'm not quite sure where this remark you put out came from.

    The Meego web site says the x86 version requires SSE3; you could presumably recompile for older CPUs but I doubt there's any point to doing so... the primary market would be Atoms. which have SSE3.

    That said, I just double-checked and couldn't find where I'd previously read that it required SSE3; so I may be hallucinating .

    I was going to try it out last night, but seems there's no way to get it to run in Virtualbox: it installs, but locks up after rebooting. If they're trying to get developers using it, then I'd have thought that being able to run in a VM would be a pretty high priority to make it easy to test.

    Wow, that was fast. Can't wait for the Phoronix review.
