Well, maybe this will be a good resource for folks who want to try the new Zaurus support in the OpenBSD 3.7 arm port!

Thanks offroadgeek!

LINKS:
Project page - http://www.openbsd.org/zaurus.html
Install docs - ftp://ftp.openbsd.org/pub/OpenBSD/3.7/zaurus/INSTALL.zaurus

P.S. I had difficulty subscribing to the arm port mailing list via gmail. If anyone is already a member, please post a link to this forum on the mailing list. smile.gif

Good day!

Since next the OpenBSD release is near, do use 3.8-beta[0], install instructions
here[1].

The newer version has tons of usb(umass) and apm(sleep on battery low, )
improvements.

It also has the cool package update(pkg_add -u) stuff by miod, making ports
upgrade a breeze.

Additional info on my OpenBSD zaurus here[2].

Mabuhay! barryg

By the way, nice web page barryg!

And nice screenshots asm-nai smile.gif


Someone I know who runs OpenBSD on their C3000 mentioned slow compile times as one problem... can anyone provide some benchmarks? How long does hello world take to compile? How about a kernel? Or even s source package for vi... or whatever wink.gif

Kernel Compiles:
About an hour, for local CF builds.
USB HDD, an hour.
NFS over USB net about 1.5 hrs.

I don't usually compile kernel, userland and X11 sources, I upgrade via
snapshots. Except if there are interesting commits on the tree ;).

For ports, eg kismet, about an hour, though I'll usually download the sources
and mass compile/install packages overnight on a usb hdd. There are prebuild
packages on openbsd website[0], do use test them for release.

How about cross compiling ports on your desktop?
