cross-compile setup

Hi-

I'd like to set up a cross-compile system, from x86 linux -> hpcmips 
netbsd. I've seen scattered references on how to do this, but nothing 
comprehensive. Is anyone running with such a setup? How useful is it, 
that is, how many packages that build successfully on hpcmips also build 
in a cross-compile setup?

I don't have enough space on the MobilePro to set it up for compiling, 
although I may do so once I have the appropriate networking hardware, 
with nfs.

In particular, I'd like to build ghostview or xpf, unless anyone has a 
precompiled binary for netbsd 1.5; I see they've been taken down from 
the site due to security issues.

Thanks!

John

pkgsrc bootstrap

Hi again-

Sorry to post so many times, but I'm having problems getting netbsd up 
and running on my mobilepro 780 (still can't install 1.6, btw; running 
1.5 instead).

Since binary packages aren't available for the programs I want, I 
thought I'd try compiling them; a cross-compilation environment would be 
preferable for time and space considerations, but I went ahead and 
deleted man pages and some other stuff to make room for the comp and 
xcomp binary sets. So far so good...

Next, I downloaded pkgsrc-bootstrap.tar.gz, and ran bootstrap. 
Unfortunately, it doesn't build; during configure, it reports

Using: MACHINE=hpcmips, MACHINE_ARCH=hpcmips

Then, later in the build, I get an error:

In file included from /usr/include/sys/param.h:142,
                  from main.c:92:
/usr/include/machine/param.h:56: warning: `MACHINE_ARCH' redefined
*Initialization*:1: warning: this is the location of the previous definition
*** Error code 1

Stop.
bmake.boot: stopped in /root/bootstrap-pkgsrc/bmake

...

pkgsrc bootstrap (clarification)

Hi-

Just to clarify my previous post, I'm not cross-compiling. These are 
errors from trying to build pkgsrc on the mp780 itself.

Thanks-

installing cross-built system on MobilePro 780

I **think** I have a successful build and release of NetBSD hpcmips that I've 
cross-built on an i386 laptop using source that I cvs'd yesterday (1-6 
branch).  Separately, I also cross-compiled a kernel (renamed to VR4121) 
based on a modified VR41XX config file found in the source.

The next step is to install the os to the mobilepro:

1. Do you recommend a clean installation or upgrade via installation program?

2. If I targz the VR4121 kernel and move it into the release directories, do I 
need to worry about any dependencies?  (There was a 'nbmake-hpcmips depend' 
step, as I recall.)

Thanks,

Andrew Gould

Blanking screen of z50 without suspend?

Given the "vertical bars" issue with suspend/resume on a z50, is it
possible to blank the unit's screen without suspending the computer?
My idea is to keep it running nonstop on external power without
stressing the display.

Just wanted to note that with the 1.6(c?) kernel on the z50, I've only had
one corrupted-display-on-wake situation in the last 30+ sleep/wake cycles.

Yes, my figures have also improved with it, but it is still not good
enough to be reliable.

Q: do you have a PCMCIA card in use?  I foud this only happens on mine if I 
suspend with the card (wireless network in my case) still active...
