I am new here, having recently purchased a nifty (used) HP Jornada 720.
However, I recently spent about a month getting NetBSD 3.0
up/running/configured on an NEC MobilePro 780 (hcpmips) and had begun
the arduous task of compiling on the device itself, until I fried its
monitor that is....
I am noticing that all the docs in the /hcparm/installation/ directory
are missing. I am referring to this directory:
It's just an empty directory.
Its analogue in the HPCMIPS tree
contains not only the HPC bootloader (hpcboot.exe) but also a generic,
compiled kernel (netbsd.gz) that boots on an hpcmips box directly into
'sysinst' and therefore makes installation oh-so-possible. Not to
mention the lengthy, and really useful, install docs contained in its
Does anyone know where these files are for hpcarm? I've heard tell of
a 'JSINSTALL.gz' file that does what the generic kernel posted to the
HPCMIPS tree does: Boot up and automatically run 'sysinst'. It would
be great if someone could email me a copy of this file or, better yet,
just post it up in the
directory (along with a compiled version of hpcboot.exe) so that
everyone can get to it.
I am pretty excited at the prospect of getting NetBSD up and running on
the Jornada 720, but without these files I am dead in the water.
