News & Announcements

Hardware Database updated.
Matthew & Dave have substantially updated the Hardware Database including correcting the CPU types, adding new drivers, adding PCI devices and fixing some of the ioscan output. If you have any machines running HPUX 10 or greater which aren't listed, please submit your ioscans to the database.
ELF work continuing
Paul has put in a lot of work getting the ELF kernel booting. Once more people have reported success with ELF kernels, we'll switch all development over to ELF.
RPMs and DEBs available
Thanks to Dave O'Neill and Dave Huggins-Daines, we have crosscompiling toolchains available from ftp://puffin.external.hp.com/pub/parisc/binaries for x86. Does anyone want to produce .depot files for us?

CVS Page
