Hello, this is my first post on this forum but I've had my 3100 for nearly 2 years and been through just about all the ROMs except OpenBSD so I thought I'd give it a try because I like X and want to use a 'native' system rather than a bolt-on or cut-down system.

I have decided to use 4.1 for now and I'm using this method to load the installer, and I've put the install sets on a CF card as I dont have an ethernet card for my Z (wireless only)

# insmod zbsdmod.o
# cp bsd.rd /proc/zboot

Everything seems to go OK. I get to calibrate the X screen and invited to reboot. At this point I copy the config file to /mnt/mtdflash2/pcmcia/config and reboot. The reboot gets as far as this, then gets stuck in a loop of getty messages.

init: kernel security level changed from 0 to 1
init: can't exec getty 'usr/libexec/getty for port /dev/ttyC0: no such file or directory
init: can't exec getty 'usr/libexec/getty for port /dev/ttyC1: no such file or directory

I've been through this twice with the same results. Any ideas what I can do?

Yes, I used those files but there is nothing wrong with the files themeselves, my problem was that one of the tgz files became trunkated during download. I downloaded it again and installation completed OK. My apologies, but it was late at night and I had overlooked checking the obvious before posting.

Briefly, OpenBSD was running on my 3100 and I had got WiFi working and could install packages . I was trying to get XFCE4 installed but unfortunately I've had a major crash and now require a rebuild. Oh well, tomorrow is another day!

My main concerns at the moment are:

1) The disk light is almost constantly on. Is this normal?
2) The machine will suspend (close clamshell or press power button) but will not resume (open clamshell or press power button). Am I missing something obvious?

For info I'm using *all* the 3100's disk for BSD

size offset fstype
a: 3.4G 0.0G 4.2BSD
b: 0.3G 3.4G swap
c: 3.8G 0.0G unused

I am a security professional so I'm quite excited about having OpenBSD on my Z. I just hope I can resolve these early teething troubles.

Both of these issues have been resolved in 4.1-current = 4.2-beta. You should follow the updating via cvs instructions found here: BSD Zaurus

Hope I'm not missing something obvious again, but the FTP link on the exit3 site appears to be broken. I can connect to: ftp.openbsd.org/pub/ but there is no snapshots directory.

ftp://ftp.openbsd.org/pub/OpenBSD/snapshots/zaurus/

Maybe you forgot the OpenBSD portion?

Thanks, I'll give this a try.

I copied the link from here, which is missing the OpenBSD bit.
