Official Palm Pre FOSS site coming soon
After a spirited discussion on slashdot and some emails, I’ve finally found a lead on where to get the linux kernel sources for the Palm Pre. Here’s what they have to say:
From: Opensourcequestions [at] Palm
Many thanks for the email.
We are in the process of preparing the packages and our modifications
to upload them to our open source web site – http://opensource.palm.com.
The specific page where the packages will be posted is:
http://opensource.palm.com/packages.html. For now, the page says
“Coming soon” but we expect to have the packages ready and uploaded
in about 2 weeks.
All the best,
Palm Open Source Team
I know, I know… waiting means you’ll be idle and idle hands do the devil’s work. But you’ll just have to sit on those idle hands for a few days and dream of a Pre running a Free-Software-only stack.
Palm’s open source website now shows a list of packages available for download. It looks like they’re distributing upstream tarballs alongside tarballs of their patches.
