OESF Portables Forum _ Zaurus - Other distros support _ Netbsd 7.1 Released

Posted by: Varti Mar 16 2017, 01:32 AM

"The NetBSD Project is pleased to announce NetBSD 7.1, the first feature update of the NetBSD 7 release branch.":

While OpenBSD has dropped the support for the Zaurus (with the 6.0 release being the last one), the folks at NetBSD are still releasing binaries for our beloved PDAs. The Zaurus' release includes a specific kernel for the SL-C700 (Corgi), plus a generic one for all the other models.

BTW Lately there have been some (minimal) activity on the port-zaurus mailing list:

Sevan Janiyan has twitted an update on NetBSD 7.1 running on his SL-C3100:

NetBSD has still issues booting with the -head parameter, though he's still working on fixing this.
