Mamona SDK pre-release!!!!

We’ve published the repositories of Mamona SDK 0.2Pre-release!!!!

Follow the instructions to install and use the SDK. If you have any doubts or bug reports:

  • mail list (mamona-devel <at> garage <dot> maemo <dot> org )
  • #mamona at freenode

The following machines are supported: Nokia770, Nokia800, Nokia810 and Omap3430sdp.

We divided the work in three parts:

  1. SDK itself: Our SDK was a little abandoned… The first thing we did was re-test it, fix the bugs and improve the script to install and enter into the chroot environment.
  2. SDK noemu: The no emulated packages are statically i386 binaries that improve the SDK performance, mainly the build time. After some tests bash, gcc and binutils were chosen to figure the noemu metapackage. We made a wiki page with instructions and some comparison tests.
  3. Xephyr: Finally we decided to add this functionality to Mamona. Now we can test GUI programs without flash the device.

Try it!

    i386 is an old crap. What about x64 support? Wtf cross-platform development still tied to certain platform? Is it possible to use x64 or PPC for n8x0 development without having a major PITA?

    Hi, only a little comment: Mamona in spanish is like a “sucker”

    [...] Leyendo sobre la comunidad MAEMO, comunidad de desarrollo para las MID de Nokia, he visto una noticia sobre un SDK, que le han puesto un nombre poco afortunado, al menos en español: Mamona. [...]

    n800_user, you can build the “no emulated” in x64 too. Actually, they’re built in HOST machine, it doesn’t matter what machine is.
    Mamona doesn’t have restrictions about HOST and TARGET machines. Obviously we didn’t test all available machines, but you can use any of the MACHINE available in Open Embedded.

    Jose Alberto, yeah we figure out that one year after we start the project and we thought change the name…
    The word “mamona” in portuguese is a seed (, like “canola” that is another project from our company.
