I thought some folks here might be interested in this...  I don't know
if the folk(s) working on the HP-PA port of NetBSD might already know.

The Open Group Research Institute is making available the first
snapshot of the MkLinux system for the PA-RISC.

MkLinux is the micro kernel based version of the Linux system. It is
source compatible with the Linux commands using the RPM package

The MkLinux for PA-RISC distribution provides a bootable system with
X11R6, the sources for the Open Group Research Institute Microkernel and
the Linux server, together with the installation notes.

The snapshot is available from The Open Group Software Mall at:

You can find more information on MkLinux on our Web pages:

Please note that this is only the first snapshot: although the system
is robust enough to rebuild on itself, it is still not bullet proof and
some functionalities are still missing.

A mailing list is available for bug reports or fixes:
