* I am starting the work of bringing up Linux kernel on the EST
Corporation, http://www.estc.com/, SBC 8260 product.
Ultimately, we will have a custom board that contains a MPC
8240/8260 but the hardware development won't be real for a long
I would like to leverage off of the work of others doing the 82XX
Linux ports. I have a number of basic questions, that I could use
some help with:
1) Where are the CVS archives that capture the PPC kernel
development activity located? Do they support anonymous
access? If not, what do I need to do to gain access as a named
I have used anonymous CVS access to cvs.on.openprojects.net
before, but I am not sure that this is best choice.
http://cvs.on.openprojects.net/ doesn't give me any hints.
setenv CVSROOT ":pserver:anonymous at cvs.on.openprojects.net:/cvs/linux"
cvs -z 3 checkout linux
2) Has anybody gotten Linux kernel to run on the EST Corp. SBC 8260
board? Or, is anybody is the process of doing this?
3) Has anybody gotten Linux to run on the 8240/8260? If so,
are there some hints or recipes available?

Dan Malek reports
"I am nearly ready to post the first 8240 and 8260 changes.
The 8260 is an extension of the 8xx stuff today. The 8xx is
somewhat changed to accomodate this, and will be in the 2.3.x
Has this been done? If so, where can I get the source?
4) What is best way to get in touch with embedded MPC 82xx
