Well, I recompiled the kernel again, this time with all three options
below. I fired up minicom /dev/ttyS0, but didn't see any activity while
uClinux was ordering pages. I had to hard reset the PDA to get it
operational again. Minicom was indeed configured correctly, because I
can see Hotsync sending "garbage" when I attempted to "Hotsync" with
Minicom - so that part, I know is working.
Where do we go from here? Seems as though uClinux is ordering pages,
wonder if I have the RAM/ROM configuration set up properly? I'm pretty
sure that the Palm IIIc has 2M ROM and 8M RAM. What numbers do I need to
verify for this?
