Re: NetBSD 5.0.1 Support for the TS7200

If you can help me with the following things I would be very thankful:

1.    How to build a TS-7200 gzipped kernel.

Well, _that_ part is easy, actually.  Just gzip it!

But seriously ... when you build your kernel, you should have something
like "netbsd.bin", or "netbsd-wd0.bin" (if you are using a CF card, you
probably want the latter).  First, gzip that (probably with -9).

Then, you need a file called "gzboot_TS7200_0x60660000.bin".  That probably
lives in /usr/mdec on the TS7200 distribution media (you can also build
that via the cross-compilation environment by using "build.sh build".
Simply cat those together:

cat gzboot_TS7200_0x60660000.bin netbsd-wd0.bin.gz > netbsd.gz

And voila!  Copy that to flash, and you're good to go.
How do you copy the kernel+gzboot image to flash?


Are there any similar boards available with 2 or 3 network cards that I can run NetBSD on?
