Linux CE

Note: This project has been static for a looooong time. Someone should figure out what parts aren't in yet and move them over.

Welcome to the Linux VR project. Our goal is to bring the Linux operating system to NEC VRSeries devices, most of which were originally designed to run Windows CE. So far we have Linux up and running on the Vadem Clio, the Casio E-105, the Everex Freestyle, and more.

CVS Repository

Linux VR is now in sync with Linux 2.3.99-pre3 and running pretty smoothly. No major problems reported at this point. A little more code needs to be merged into serial.c, but it only affects the power management parts. arch/mips/ will probably be made Linux VR specific soon.
