Just wanna add a note here that I got OpenBSD installed and running on my new 3200!
The installation process is both smooth and well-documented.
There is one small thing for the faint-hearted:
After repartitioning the microdrive according to http://www.planetofidiots.com/zaurus/
(btw this is a great supplement to the official Installation guide ftp://mirror.hostfuss.com/pub/OpenBSD/sna.../INSTALL.zaurus
and go ahead to install the system,
you may run into errors saying filesystem is full, if you create a partition for /tmp for 200MB (i am just following the suggested space allocation above and find it quite sensible), maybe i am wrong, but it seems downloading all the distribution sets in one go will cause this.
So i have to do it at two times:
The first time install bsd, bsd.rd, base41.tgz, etc41.tgz, xbase41.tgz, xetc41.tgz, which will give you the basic system.
After rebooting following the installation, just go install the rest. It seems both pkg_add and upgrading in the emergency linux will do.
BTW i was trying to configure network, which is the step between fdisk and system installation, without success. So i needed to download all the distribution set files on a card under 4.1/zaurus.
My Symbol Spectrum24 is detected but wi0 fails to initiate:
wi0: init failed
: unable to read station address
So i tried
ifconfig wi0 nwid MYSSID nwkey PASSWORD
and got this:
ifconfig: SIOCGIFFLAGS: Device not configured
Now reading iamsmith's nice guide:Living With Openbsd 1, Initial Setup
, but i have difficulty with understanding the technical details. Could someone give me a more concise explanation of how wifi CF works?
Surely this is yet another truly fantastic moment in my Z experience! Thank you all the devs and contributors for your hard work!
