: Some people at NECEL are keen to see Linux up and running on some of
: their products, which might include evaluation boards and PDAs, with
: CPUs from the tiny ones used in hand-helds (Vr41x1) to relatively big
: ones being touted for high-end embedded (Vr54xx).
You might want to forward this to the LinuxCE folks at
: At this stage NECEL's support is likely to be moral rather than
: financial; but they should be good for loan hardware and access to
: documentation - which is often a problem with companies as large and
: complex as NEC. And if pilot work is successful, they might want to
: spend money later.
Too bad my MobilePro 400 and 450 died. don't have any other NEC
machines, although I do have a Everex E-10 with a Vr4102 in it.
There is also an effort to get NetBSD ported to NEC's MobileGear II
machines. You can read about it at:
They have a bootloader that will boot an ELF kernel off a FAT CF
card. Plus NetBSD is booting to a fairly advanced stage.
I have also tried to catalog all the PDAs that are mips based at
as well as links to various web sources of information from datasheets
