hello list,

Can anyone show me the pointers for getting started with porting linux on IBM
SPRUCE board. Also from where can i get necessary h/w manuals for the board. I
have checked up IBM site for this, but lots of links seems to be missing now.

some characteristics of the board are
1. 750 based ppc
2. CPC700 system controller
3. 128 MB RAM

Necessary resources for setting up the development environment like Vision Probe
are available.

Which kernel version shall i start with and some documents for porting
guidelines will be helpful. I tried downloading kernel using bitkeeper, but
somehow bitkeeper is not working from behind the firewall.
