The openbsdfullinstall.tar.gz includes all the files needed to perform a full microdrive installation of OpenBSD on a Zaurus SL-C3X00. A detailed installation guide is included along with various other files which can be used to enhance the standard installation. The tar.gz can be downloaded from the following locations:

I have a SL-C3200 which I have screwed up by closing the lid on it accidentally during the BSD install. The original install started out fine, but when it was loading the base bsd package it started complaining about invalid headers at 87%, it continued with the same errors until 100% and then it started with the next package from my SD card. All the packages started out fine, but once each one got to 87% they would all complain about invalid headers. The install eventually failed.

I interrupted the install process and closed the lid by accident. Now when I turn the c3200 on, it runs the bootloader and then hangs because there is no BSD installed.

How do I start the install again? The c3200 does not seem to see the SF or CF cards at this point. Since the BSD bootloader was installed I can't boot and tell it to load from the Cf or SD cards. Did the BSD bootloader overwrite the memory? Am I the proud owner of a brick, or can I recover from this?

I'd really like to load BSD on this thing, but the invalid header errors during the install attempt are causing the install to fail.

Any ideas I can try to restore the flash memory and try again, or start the install again from the bootloader?

Thanks
