OpenBSD now runs on the Zaurus PDA

Used to be only on sale in Japan and in Europe but is no longer produced.

Some info on how to get the Zaurus in English (instead of Japanes) can be found on or

Getting the Prism wifi card to work under the default Zaurus linux:


Just add the following lines into /etc/pcmcia/wlan-ng.conf

card "WLAN Card 11Mbps_PC-Card_3.0 ISL37100P Eval-RevA"
manfid 0x000b, 0x7100
bind "prism2_cs"

and reboot it...

Those card info are from: cardctl ident
