Good day!

This is from a post[5] on arm@openbsd.org mailinglist.

These are *notes* and not installation instructions, please read and
follow INSTALL.zaurus.

Do post your C1000 dmesg.


Prerequisites
- Spare CF card or microdrive, at least 256MB.
- USB female B to male mini A adapter
- USB key or a supported USB network card[0]


Common
- Print INSTALL.zaurus[0], read it, again read it.
- When disklabeling, make sure that the first OpenBSD slice is inside
the A6 partition(usually starts at sector 17).

<barryg@gamakichi:4>$ sudo fdisk wd1

C1000
- You have to install bootloader(zbsdmod.o) and run the install/rescue
kernel(bsd.rd) manually.
# insmod zbsdmod.o
# cp bsd.rd /proc/zboot
Additional info here[1].
The openbsd38_arm.ipk makes to many assumptions that are only
applicable to the C3x00 series.

C3000/C3100
- In install, use wd1 as your root disk.
- To automatically boot to the OpenBSD installed on the CF do
# echo "set device hd1a" > /mnt/etc/boot.conf
after installation and before rebooting.
Caveats here[2], read the whole thread.
- On OpenBSD bootloader[3] prompt enter
boot> boot hd1a:/bsd -a
if you did not create the above boot.conf and on
root device (default wd0a): wd1a
press enter on swap device.
- To make the above changes permanent, you can edit your kernel,
instructions here[6].
- The previous step is needed as Linux[4] (the one that loads the openbsd
bootloader) detects disk from the external CF first before in internal
microdrive but OpenBSD enumerates in reverse order.


Mabuhay!

Good day!

Do you know of any local merchants retailing the
PMP USB Host Adapter Cable[0]?

I will be using it for my soon-to-arrive c3k, and
had a hard time finding one. Usually it's the mini-b or
the 4 pin mini-b usb adapter most computer shop
display.

Salamat po.

would like to request my friend living in singapore to
purchase me a couple of them.

Thanks.
