I remember using Linux with X on a Psion Series 5mx (ARM7, 36Mhz, 16MB
RAM) back in my younger, more foolish days.
Just wondering how NetBSD compares in RAM usage. Right now I'm running
Familiar Linux + Opie on my Jornada, and the RAM usage is fine. But
since the 728 has 64MB I thought I'd check.
As far as WMs go, DevilVM
( sounds like a
good idea.
Porting Opie or even GPE would be great, but I'm no good as a C/C++
coder, so I'll keep quiet :-)

So, NetBSD-3.0 (release) is cross-compiling at the moment. Just trying
to get a feel for it. So far it's similar enough to OpenBSD that I
don't have to look too hard.
I didn't see any mention of 3.0 on hpcarm, mind you. Guess I'll find
out whether it works once I have a 1GB CF card in hand.
