Submission + - Neo1973 (=OpenMoko) phone booting NetBSD/(evb)arm (

hubertf writes: "OpenMoko is a project that runs Open Source software on Open hardware. So far, only Linux is available, but this is changing now: Noud de Brouwer has posted about his success running NetBSD on qemu-neo1973, which emulates the hardware that the OpenMoko project uses.

The post includes links to a package for 'mkimage', which, according to the packages' DESCR file, ``adds a header to a kernel image with information and checksums for the u-boot bootloader used in embedded systems'', instructions on how to derivea NEO1973/OpenMoko port for NetBSD from the existing evbarm/SMDK2410 port, and discussion about running OpenMoko under Qemu."

Time is an illusion perpetrated by the manufacturers of space.
