Ericsson mc16 aka hp 320lx

I have gotten my hands on a old Ericsson mc16, and I thought it would be
nice to run either netBSD or Linux on it. I have search the mailing list
and the web, but I have not been able to get a final answer: is it
possible to run either netBSD or Linux on the mc16? If yes, how? are
there any howto's that I have not been able to find?

Re: Ericsson mc16 aka hp 320lx

Hi,

I have a MC16 also, I also intend to get GNU/Linux of netBSD running on
it.

I think you will find this link interesting :-)

	http://prt.fernuni-hagen.de/~bischoff/wince/

let me know how you get on. I want to know what is the largest Flash card
that the MC16 can take and also what Bluetooth or Wireless PCMCIA cards
the NetBSD sh3 port has support for.

regards.

Sorry I fail to see what is interesting about Openssh running on WinCE

Right now I'm about to through the mc16 in the trash. I does not look
like it is possible to boot any Unix system on it :(

Re: Ericsson mc16 aka hp 320lx - linuxsh and netbsd hpsh

Henrik I sent you the incorrect link. I did see some page detailing a full
description someone made of getting mc16 to boot netbsd and put most of
the core netBSD system on a 256 MB flash card.

However this is the CORRECT link for the project to port GNU/Linux to
devices running the Hitachi SH3 Processor (including the Ericsson MC16) :

	http://linuxsh.sourceforge.net/index.php3

This is the CORRECT link for the project to bring "the NetBSD operating
system to HITACHI Super-H family based Windows CE PDA machines. Currently,
the sh3 processor is supported."

	http://www.netbsd.org/Ports/hpcsh/

The Ericsson MC16 is pretty much the same as the HP 360LX according to :

	http://www.m17n.org/linux-sh/ml/linux-sh/2000-01/msg00026.html

Jukka M. Jalkanen says the following about the MC16 :

	"Here's what I know now:
	HD6417707R (SH3), 60MHz
	Display: 640x240, 16 grayscales
	10MB ROM
	8MB RAM

	Some labels on the components:
	REV 4 on the main board
	S41-1 on the processor

No need to apologize, I'm sorry if my reply was a bit harsh, I thought
that you had misunderstood what I wanted to do.

I've give it a last shot, and then I will follow your advice :)
