HI. I have a Z-SL-5600.

There are obviously several distributions of operating systems for it. I've been wondering: Where do these developers get their documentation on the hardware? I haven't done much kernel recompilation or distribution, so this may seem like a stupid question.

I mean, where are the pin-outs? The memory maps? The ARM chip numbers? How does one develop an OS without this kind of information?

Does Sharp keep this kind of information a secret? Sell it? Is it on the mirrors of the Zaurus developer community?

Maybe I should just get involved in the hobbyist, embedded microcontroller communities if I want to understand the hardware or remain in control of the hardware which belongs to me, huh? smile.gif

OK. It's a newbie question.
