Default install NetBSD (hpcsh-port) on a HP-620 ?

hi !

what´s the easiest way to install NetBSD (hpcsh-port) on a HP-620 ?

i´ve found some instructions about connection via cable to PC,
and then copying to the HP, but i don´t have NetBSD installed on my PC, so
how can i do it, any ideas ?

when i installed Jlime on my HP, i extracted all files onto my compactflash-card, and then started the boatloader, can i do the same with NetBSD ?

Hi,

unfortunatelly NetBSD doesn't provide any "click and go" methods. You do not need to connect your HP to any computer etc. All you need is just the CF card you will install NetBSD onto. If you do not have NetBSD as primary installation on PC you can use some LiveCD of NetBSD (http://www.jibbed.org/) to install all sets etc, create disk labels, slices etc.

You can use this howto http://onlamp.com/pub/a/bsd/2003/06/...y_Daemons.html.

P.S.

You do not need to do the bootstrapping.

Good luck !

Pjoter.

I'm totally not familiar with hpcsh port, but here are some links that could help you:

http://wiki.netbsd.se/How_to_install_NetBSD_on_hpcsh
http://www.netbsd.org/ports/hpcsh/howto-use.html

There is also a NetBSD mailing list devoted to hpcsh, people there could be more of a help to you. Good luck.

If you are trying to install something on HP PA-RISK architecture you would be
far better of trying OpenBSD. NetBSD port is actually copied from OpenBSD and far less likely to support the hardware. Unfortunately Michael Shalayeff who created OpenBSD port left the project and
is now heading AerieBSD project.

Hi Oko,

this is Super Hitachi processor not PA-RISC so only NetBSD is available. It seems that OpenBSD didn't fork that port yet :P
