You could probably install netbsd (netbsd/hpcsh3) onto a compact flash card. I don't know of any linux distributions for CE 2.x devices that still exist or are still updated.

I've installed netbsd on my mobilepro 780 just fine, and was able to run dillo and other programs just fine. I will say that X takes awhile to load though and you have to reboot netbsd after exiting X in order to get the keyboard working properly (after exit, any keys you type output gibberish). I'm not sure if that problem is device-specific or netbsd/hpc* specific, but I'm thinking the latter.

You mean other than JLime, or is that also being abandoned?

Yes, other than JLime. I had the mobilepro in mind at the time and didn't think of the Jornada.

Is there really any difference between Jlime and NetBSD?

Jlime is not being abandoned. For sh3 there are several new userlands and always there is new work in kernel side.

fquezada : Check www.jlime.com for details

I figured the JLime project is still active, but is there a way to format a CF card for Linux without having to boot the PC itself into Linux? (That's been the holdup for me - my 620LX is still sitting and waiting for me to run JLime on it. )

You could take it a step further and run the live cd within Virtualbox ;-)

You can use some Linux live-cd like puppy or knoppix.

For hp 620lx you should use this :
http://fz.hobby-site.org/hp660lx/jlime-stable/
jlime version, or this:
http://fz.hobby-site.org/hp660lx/jlime-winter/

I'm already aware of those pages - they've been bookmarked on my PC for some time. The holdup for me is formatting the CF card into Linux partitions without having to boot Linux on the PC. There was supposed to be an ActiveSync JLime installer in the works - what happened to that?

CE Geek--I just started playing around with Linux (Puppy, this past summer on my eee900), and you're one of the finest fellows here. I've gotten RTFM's Linux distros to run on my J-720, and If you'd like, send me a couple of CD cards (256-500mb) and I'll install the OSs you want. Then you can play with them w/o the hassle of partitioning, etc. I'm an American in Chile, so I have an APO address--domestic postage to Florida, the military takes care of the rest.

Best,
Jake

Thanx for the offer, Jake - though I wouldn't say I'm one of the finest. I don't even meet the qualifications for novice when it comes to Linux, but I'd like to try it on a mobile device without having to pay an arm and a leg for one of those cooler Sharp Zauri. As noted above, I'm interested in running JLime on one of my 620LXs. I can send you a 256 MB CF card; PM me with the APO address to send it to.

Hi, CE Geek--

I've be happy to hook that up for you, but the rub is, I don't have 620LX, so can only partition and copy the files, but can not test.

Oh, dear,
Jake

That's cool - I only want the disk partition done anyway. I planned to do the rest.
