i've just found that page :

http://www.openbsd.org/cgi-bin/cvsweb/src/...zaurus/#dirlist

is it possible to have the changelogs when new snapshots are published, specially for the zaurus ?
i noticed there was a new snapshot of june 28th here:
ftp://ftp.openbsd.org/pub/OpenBSD/snapshots/zaurus
mathemajikian
$ dmesg
OpenBSD 4.2-beta (ZAURUS) #13: Sat Jul 28 15:47:41 BST 2007

Great news!
But does this imply that all the existing packages have to be recompliled for 4.2?
Now learning to set up a NFS server on my laptop to help compiling.
Also how about SD card support? It's a pity that i can never get any of my >1GB card working under OBSD...

Oh so it seems to be only me ... blink.gif
Then how do you format your SD? Is it necessary to format it with FFS on some other obsd box before putting it in Z?

Bluetooth drivers are enabled by default in the GENERIC kernel, but were still lacking RFCOMM support. sad.gif Power consumption is the same and probably wont change until OpenBSD can be installed onto the flash partitions. Writing to an SD card via the on board SD slot still isn't possible. Hopefully this will be fixed by 4.2-release or 4.2-current?

I've posted the 4.2-beta dmesg output here: Current OpenBSD dmesg logs

Thanks for the update.

Under "What's New - Improved Hardware Support", it says

New pxammc(4) driver for the MMC/SD/SDIO controller on zaurus.

Sounds very promising! smile.gif
jpmatrix
