: prosessor, but as of now, I havent gotten any extencive info from compaq
: about the cpu.
That matters a lot :-)
: I am planing to buy myself on on theese machines, and
: running windows CE is not an option ;) Theese machines has many snacksy
: features, and should be a cool machine to run linux on.. The base models
: is equiped with 8-20-32 mb ram a 16 mb rom (obviosly need some info
: from compaq into how the rom could be removed/ replaced/erased.) allso
: supporting flash cards for storage.
You can't erase the ROMs, but you can replace them. However, that is
: Please let me know if you have any input. I fear I will spend much time
: in hacking around with it all on my own ;P
See my other messages to linux-mips for the status of the generic
efforts to get Linux on these machines.
