The new version Maemo 8 "Leste" is an ARM64 port of [https://devuan.org/ Devuan] (Debian without systemd) and runs the mainline Linux kernel. The default user interface stack is [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hildon Hildon], [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X.Org_Server Xorg], [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matchbox_(window_manager) Matchbox WM], and [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GTK GTK]. The current version is Devuan Beowulf (Debian Buster) and has simultaneous support for both Devuan and Debian. In addition to the main repository, they [https://maemo-leste.github.io/maemo-leste-repositories-and-community-packages.html announced] a [https://github.com/maemo-leste-extras/bugtracker community repository]. To keep updated they use automation in their package maintenance with [https://github.com/maemo-leste/jenkins-integration jenkins] (similar to [https://www.debian.org/devel/buildd/ debian's buildd]). Porting packages to Maemo Leste is basically a simple matter of porting to arm64 version of Debian/Devuan, which benefits both projects.

It is recommended that you log your bug reports in [https://gitlab.com/mobian1/issues the project's issue tracker]. As a general rule, issues with third-party apps (even the default ones) should be reported upstream.

On the Braveheart model there was a postmarketOS based basic Factory Test OS pre-installed on the eMMC. The developer Martijn Braam from postmarketOS has improved the functionality of the image considerably later. Since the 20200501 version, it is able to test all the hardware. It also includes functionality to install a new OS to the eMMC when using with an test image that includes that OS image. The downloadable image just does the hardware tests. Do not flash eMMC to test your device, just dd it to microSD and test from there. New versions are distributed as part of the postmarketOS distribution.

General steps:
* https://github.com/nikhiljha/pp-fedora-sdsetup (an example for Fedora) or
* https://xnux.eu/howtos/install-arch-linux-arm.html (an example for Arch Linux).


General step:
# Create a boot partition (from 4 MB to about 252 MB) and a root partition (from the end of boot to the end of the card) filesystem on the SD card.
 
# Create a boot (from 4 MB to about 252 MB) and root (from the end of boot to the end of the card) filesystem on the SD card.
# Format the boot partition with vfat, and the root partition with a supported filesystem like ext4 or f2fs.
# Format the boot partition with vfat, and the root partition with a supported filesystem like ext4 or f2fs.
# Extract the root filesystem from your distribution's ARM image into the root filesystem on the SD card. Do not copy the partition, copy the files (in archive mode: like <code>rsync -ar</code>).
# Extract the root filesystem from your distribution's ARM image into the root filesystem on the SD card. Do not copy the partition, copy the files instead (in archive mode, like <code>rsync -ar</code>).
# Edit <code>/etc/fstab</code> to match your partitions.
# Edit <code>/etc/fstab</code> to match your partitions.
# Grab megi's kernel from https://xff.cz/kernels/
# Grab megi's kernel from https://xff.cz/kernels/, Follow the instructions in the [https://xff.cz/kernels/README README], which involves copying the kernel modules into the SD card rootfs, and writing u-boot and the bootloader.
