I have just installed current (and current X) on to my jornada 720. I seem to
be having a few problems. I'll list the steps i took to get it installed and
then the problems im having.
1st i disklabeled my 1gb kingston flash card setting up a dos partition, a
netbsd partition and a swap partition. That all worked fine.
I then did a ./build.sh -x -m hpcarm distribution and installed that on the
flash card. I ran postinstall and ran the commands it suggested, then coppied
the build.sh built /etc over to the flash disk. uudecode'd hpcboot and copied
that over aswell as the new kernel. I created a symlink on / pointing to
netbsd on the dos partition.
I then noticed that the MAKEDEV script didnt exist so i copied those over and
built my devices.
I set my rc.conf up and booted up the jornada.
It booted up fine with the japanese option.
Now my problems.
On boot syslog complained that authlog, cron, xferlog, lpd-errs and mail log
root obviously had no password at this point and non of his user files
(.cshrc .login etc) were present.
Is there a command to create them? In the end i coppied them from another
The permisions on /tmp were wrong, only root had read write access. chmod 777
X as root is fine but i cannot start it as a normal user. It just complains
there are no screens available.
also the ctrl key in X does not work by default i had to add
addcontrol = Control_L
X also switches the screen of after 10 mins regardles of whether im typing or
If anyone knows what i have done wrong with setting it up i would appretiate
any help as i plan on writing this up for the new wiki.
