Hi!
I have NetBSD on my J720 and i think it is the best option for a modern OS on the Jornada. Are here any other NetBSD users?

Currently i have NetBSD 8.1 installed on a 32GB CF Card. Together with a few programs i need for my work.

At the moment i work on a RAM upgrade to 128MB. You can read about that in my other thread. To get this working i need to change some things in the hpcboot.exe. Maybe someone can help me with that!

Bye
Stefan

It's good to find another NetBSD user!
I have booted and compiled simple programs on Sigmarion 1 with NetBSD 7.99.

It works great, but since Sigmarion 1 only has 1x Compact Flash I am thinking of a way to communicate via serial cable.
I've been thinking to do it, but I've been busy with other stuff.




Good luck on 128MB RAM for J720!

If you're referring to Jornada 720 & NetBSD:

Here's one tutorial:

Here's also another:

If you're referring to Sigmarion 1 / Mobile Gear:

Hi.
Nice little machine!
There is a project out there that makes it possible to connect over RS232 to Wifi. https://github.com/8bit-bruno/WiFiModem

I work currently on a cross-compile environment for the Jornada on my 86_64 machine. Because compiling big programs on the Jornada isnt that funny ...

Hi!
I have compiled a few programs/tools/games and libraries for NetBSD/hpcarm 8.1 . Maybe someone can use the packages.

Here you go: http://www.sp-net.at/nextcloud/s/E6CRRBdEokd97Xe

Thanks for the github link. I'll put it into my to-do list for the future.

_dev-null, what sorts of programs are you running on NetBSD? Does it run X? What about suspend?

Hi!
Yes it runs X. I used fluxbox as desktop environment. I used Mutt (Mail), SSH, rdesktop (M$ Remotedesktop), avrdude, vnc, vpnc (VPN), python and for writing text. Suspend works. But not as battery saving as with WinCE...
It is much more useable as the old WinCE!

Regards
Stefan

Thanks. Yes, I had JLime working on my 720 but it was so out of date that I didn't bother with it.

I assume the NetBSD system is all up-to-date?

Which have you found to be more useable, NetBSD or the Debian update you have been working on?

Hi!
NetBSD 8.1 is up to date and there are many pre-compiled applications available! I think that also NetBSD 9 works on the Jornada, but i did not try the new version.
I have compiled a few applications and libraries that are not available pre-compiled http://www.sp-net.at/nextcloud/s/iofRdEk3B8LTgHs
Everything else has to be compiled via pkgsrc!

Currently NetBSD is far more usable than my Debian experiments ...

Bye
Stefan

It looks like there are no 9.0 NetBSD pre-compiled packages on hpcarm. Incredibly, they did not seem to bother with compiling any amd64 ones either!
