I'll try installing the headers and see how that goes. I've been using Ubuntu and the problem is that it's almost too easy. To install and run the OS and install new programs, I can use GUI programs and not need to know what an rpm or git directory is; everything can be click and run.
Another method of working with Meego would be using Xephyr and chroot. I saw a thread on the Meego forum about how to get that to work with non-Intel graphics but the benefits of running Meego this way are not apparant. My goal is to get a music player with a convenient UI onto Meego (maybe get the hands-free working) then stick the computer in my truck. Added functionality will come as Meego is developed and I gain experience. It sounds like you have to do a few keystrokes to load up Meego going the Xephyr route so this doesn't sound ideal.
Overall I really like what I see with Meego. With an SSD, it boots quick. With no offense to LinuxICE, I like the UI of Meego over nghost and I don't get stuck in menus like I did trying out LinuxICE.
