I am porting current to an oldish sa1100.
The os is booting & running properly when I use an NFS root (no disk
16mb ram & 1 pcmcia-slot :-( ).
My question is where would I need to plug in the wireless (driver wi)
ssid & wep-key ?
I found nfs_boot_setaddress, but that would look to much like a hack
( and what if I have an ethernet card installed?)
Is there already somewhere a hook for interface configuration (via some
sort of bootparams or so?)
In the moment the only thing I can do is boot into a minimal mfs that has a
shell and ifconfig & mount_nfs.
I can set the parameters there, but mounting the nfs_root over the MFS
doesn't look too good in df.
init finishes the system from there on :-)
the other question is:
can I unmount the original MFS ?
Thirdly: is there some sort of flash-filesystem driver in netbsd ?
Currently my port is based on hpcarm, but has ucb1200 & touch panel
driver and other bits added that I didn't see
If there is any interest to put those things into the current -cvs
tree, who would be the one to ask?
