jornada 710: success

Good news: The Jornada 710 works with -current.

(Thanks to Laurent Pertois who took the risk of purchasing a maching
that was likely to work but not sure)

make release "snapshot" in xsrc-current...

Just made a make release on xsrc-current and it compiled first go.
I am going to upload it to a web visible server in a minute and post the 
link.

Whats the difference, if any, between make release and make release 
snapshot?

I sort of dislike the fact that whatever you do in xsrc, make wise, it 
does a make clean. It took approx 6h to compile it so after my first 
make all I wass gutted by the make clean action.

Anyway it's on it's way and should be up by tomorrow...

have a nice one....

oh, and Happy New year to the list

cheers Steve

Can netbsd support zaurus 5500

Hello port-hpcarm,

  I want to run netbsd on zaurus 5500.

hpcarm distribution finished

I've made some advances on the hpcarm distribution. I used crunchgen and now
I can fit everything inside the ramdisk. So you only need three files:
JINSTALL.gz  hpcboot.cnf  hpcboot.exe and you don't need run anything from
the dos partition. I've updated the installation instructions and attached
them at the bottom. I have two quick questions. First, sysinst checks to
make sure the following files have been unpacked:

/netbsd /etc /etc/fstab /sbin/init /bin/sh /etc/rc /etc/rc.subr /etc/rc.conf
/dev /dev/console /etc/fstab /sbin/fsck /sbin/fsck_ffs /sbin/mount
/sbin/mount_ffs /sbin/mount_nfs

Of course the only one that isn't going to be there is /netbsd. Would it be
possible to add a zero byte /netbsd to one of the hpcarm distribution files
(base.tgz maybe)? It would make sysinst end a little nicer.

Second, I modified sysinst's md.c to automatically add a slice e for the DOS
partition. While this is nice, now that everything fits on the ramdisk it's
not necessary and sysinst may not be the best place to have that code.
Unless I hear otherwise I won't do any more work to clean it up (like having
it look for a dos partition in any of the four slots in the partition
table).

Installation instructions

Create a DOS partition on a CF card of 5MB. Make sure it is the first
partition on the flash (Partition 0). Copy the files from:

cross compile on FreeBSD

Anyone know if it's possible to cross-build hpcarm on a FreeBSD host? I've had 
success cross compiling the kernel, however I'm unable to build the rest of 
the tree.

Regads,
Stefan.

installing NetBSD on Jornada 820

hello,

I recently took over administration in a lab and found about 6 Jornada 820
machines. Because they're not useful at all right now (collecting dust or
worse) and basically, no one cares (or even knows) about these machines,
I want to do some useful stuff with it.

I read that booting from a memory card is easiest, but, ehrm...I don't
think any of these machines has one...

What kind of cards have to go in there exactly? Could I alternatively use
a USB disk (you know, these pendrives) or won't that work? If not, what
kind of card should I get (size, etc.) and will the procedure as described
on http://www.netbsd.org/Ports/hpcarm/howto-use.html work with the 820?

Keyboard question, not using X


Hi; wonderful stuff here!  I had decided to shelve the 720 because
I couldn't stand Wince and because the fonts under Wince just
sucked too bad...

So, one question:

How do I generate ~{}[]  --- no ~ makes testing cu/tip hard.

Potentially even remap the keys, but first I need to figure out how to
make them :)

Thanks,

Avi

tty question


I fear this may not be hpcarm-particular, but I'm trying to get an
Audiovox RTM-8000 GSM/GPRS modem (CF, with a PCMCIA-CF adapter)
going.

When installed, it says:

<timestamp> /netbsd: com0: at pcmcia0 function 0
<timestamp> /netbsd: : serial device
<timestamp> /netbsd: com0: ns16550a, working fifo

Sometimes it gives a "I/O window not allocated" message as well.

For /etc/uucp/ports, I have:

port mymodem
	type modem
	device /dev/tty00
	speed 19200

I can't cu -p mymodem or cu -p modem, but I can cu -l /dev/tty00 -s 19200

When I do, I get connected.  If I issue commands, the modem will
dial (caller ID is nice; just dial the home phone and the caller
ID of the GSM SIM shows up).

But I get no characters received.

I've poked a bit but can't see that NetBSD encourages ttyC0 creation;
at least not in the MAKEDEV that is installed.

Some further digging in a locker gave me a user's guide. So, it's
CompactFlash Type II. Tomorrow we'll try to get it booting...but still,
is the install procedure as described on that website the right one?
