wtb: ucLinux CDROM (1999-2001)
« on: November 28, 2021, 03:37:19 pm »
Hello
does anyone have a ucLinux CDROM? (kernel 2.0...2.4, 1999-2001)
Yesterday I didn't find it included with a vintage card and I need sources.

Let me know.
Thanks

Maybe the waybackmachine (a.k.a. archive.org) helps; here from August 2000: https://web.archive.org/web/20000815053403/http://www.uclinux.org/

You can also change the snapshot date.

When they say "Contact us, Order the official CD" ... there was a CD rom with all toolchain, documentation, schematic, sources, patches ...

I am Googling for these files, but I'd like to buy the official CD, if it's possible.

To be honest, I just checked the download section if the files are also covered by the archive. And expected it provides everything that's needed. But it really seems that they provided the download for only the kernel and not the full toolchain and additional documentation.

Yup, neither documentation, nor patches found.
And I know they were included with the CD.

As alternative, I could look for a kit. Old new stock or something.

Also, some files from the wb-machine are shown in the list but the link is broken, so they are lost.

I am not sure, but maybe this site might have the files you need: https://sourceforge.net/projects/uclinux/

I do have an older archive: uClinux-dist-20011112_tar.gz but this is only for the 68K/coldfire.

All the best.

hi

I am not sure, but maybe this site might have the files you need: https://sourceforge.net/projects/uclinux/

unfortunately those files only contain the toolchain, but there is no documentation on the supported cards, no schematics or sources for the bootloader, linker script, netcard, etc.

I know around 1999-2001 there was a commercial kit with a CD and it was all included with the CD.

I do have an older archive: uClinux-dist-20011112_tar.gz but this is only for the 68K/coldfire.

yes, around 1999-2001, the supported targets were:
- m68k
- coldfire-v1
- i960
- arm7tdmi

Specifically I am looking for m68k and arm7tdmi.

There were some commercial boards as "hardware reference", and commercial kits included all schematic documentation and memory mapping information as well as link scripts, firmware sources (e.g. the monitor, and the bootloader) and bare metal examples, while those ghost files on the internet focus only on the toolchain (gcc + binutils + uclibc).
