Hi to all,

I have read several threads about Jlime recently. Can't make up my mind where this belongs. So, please forgive another thread on the topic.

As mentioned elsewhere, the Jlime site is no longer around.
But the installation files and instructions are still available at http://www.acetolyne.net/Projects/node/17#JLime
As far as I can see, the hpcfactor software repository directs people to the non-existent Jlime site.

Perhaps, it would be worthwhile for a moderator to download the files from the above site, while they are still available.

A few years back, one of the hpcfactor members was selling a ready made Jlime CF.
See the thread: [FS: WORLD] Jlime Linux CF - Configured to Boot - Jornada 7xx

He sold a few copies. I would have bought one from him recently, but they are temporarily packed away, due to a move.

I was able to successfully put Jlime on my J-720/728, the hard way (using the files and instructions at the above site). However, those instructions are very confusing to a Linux newbie, and I believe there are a few errors in the process as described. (By the way, I successfully used a SimpleTech CF card.)

Was there a repository with additional software suitable for Jlime on the J720?
If so, it probably went away with the Jlime site. There is no link to one at the above site.

Whether Linux on the J720 is worthwhile has been debated. WinCe is much quicker. But I was hoping to get a browser with working SSL, for occasional use. We'll see...

If someone has a full clone of the repository for the 7xx, 6xx, MP900 and NBP, I'll re-host it

Wow! Talk about fast response!
Ask a question, and presto... The new Jlime repository appears.
(I'm sure it has been in the works for awhile, and represents a lot of effort.)

Thank you,
Dave
