Welcome Krist!

This is Neat! ... maybe Linux will be the saving grace for all the older HPCs as far as web surfing is concerned.

I'm doing a reinstall of NetBSD2.0 on my MP790 using the hpcmips port. Maybe we can start a new section on Linux for HPCs, C:Amie?

Greetings,

The status page isn't up to date although the packages are abit old (2002), we are currently updating them (new gcc should come after this weekend and glibc should follow shortly..).

I plan to add alot of screenshots running everything from blackbox, fluxbox, gnome to afterstep and enlightenment just haven't gotten round to it.
The only thing currently not working 100% is the touchscreen (it doesnt move right) and i'm looking into that.

So give linux on hp6xx a try, and please leave feedback.

Is there any chance that you could start working in support for the arm based 720/728? I have thought about messing around with the netbsd port, but the support and documentation for that looks really poor.

That's what I like about linux, you can build practically everything on your machine! And its good to know that the project is online et al. I personally do not have a 720 so I am outta luck here, maybe someone with the J6xx can try it out and give us some review?

It could give me enough nudge to consider a J6xx to run web surfing!!

Kristoffer, its great to know you folks are rigging up linux for the J6xx. It could be the saving grace for the J6xx with its outdated OS and in particular its crippled bRowSer!!! PIE3.01 *hoRroR*

Keep us posted! Thx!

It was a purposeful grammatical joke that I do from time to time - that may be my 3rd time on this forum hehe. Not sure where I got the idea for that....FINE! We are the rebels of a CE forum, we are.

-Hahah C:Amie - is this a CE forum or a forum for devices that happen to run CE? 8)

Thx for the support everyone.

Rocketman - I thought there was plentifull of options for hp7xx users? Porting to Arm based machines (like jornada 7xx, ipaq...) is very well supported under linux so it shouldnt be a problem. I don't own a 7xx myself but when i get one i could look into it.
And if there's enough demand for it i could probobly whip together som test kernel/userlands for it.

Hi. I dont know much about Linux. The only time I got to use a Linux based system was last week. I work at PepBoys. We are getting a New computer system for the stores. I was sent to "Find bugs" and To Help configure the software. I have to report back in about 2 weeks for more "Testing"
Could somebody Please explain the differences between CE and Linux? All I know is that Linux is supposed to be more stable. Sorry, I am more of a Hardware man. last program I worked on was in Basic and the Apple version. Almost 20 years ago.
Thanks
Chris
