Linux on a Palm Zire


Has anyone here got Linux to run on one of these devices? I have one that I got as a gift and would like to try and put Linux on it since I never use it. Any websites would be a big help. I have searched google to little avail. Thanks.

Which Palm Zire do you have? I've a Palm Zire 21, which has 2 MB, so no way Linux would fit on it . I also happen to have a Palm m515 which has 16 MB memory and it's also very small (though, I love this one ). Check at NetBSD after the processor type for your handheld. It's more likely that NetBSD would run in a Palm then Linux... I guess. NetBSD runs on nearly everything out there

Good luck!
