[GSoC 2014: ARM port] Week #5

Blog post by dnivra on Sat, 2014-05-24 06:28

Hey everyone!
Here’s an update on week #5.

TL;DR - I created a bootable SD card image that boots up when emulating BeagleBoard-xM in qemu. Control is passed to haiku_loader, which then crashes. A link to the necessary u-boot files and an sh compatible shell script(that generates the SD card image) is provided at the end.

Update: There's a better script that does not require losetup/root permissions listed in update for week #6.

Hey everyone!

Here’s an update on progress during week #3. Sorry about the delay - exams have started for me.

TL;DR - I didn’t succeed in creating the bootable SD card image since I’ve been preparing for exams. There are some instructions and probably next steps in this direction listed here. More work on this will be done after exams.

Hey everyone! Here’s an update on what’s happened so far.

TL;DR - PulkoMandy managed to build the bootstrap image and kallisti5 has made some progress in running the image on the qemu. This is a significant progress since bootstrap image build never succeeded but not quite usable on BBB. I’ve not made much significant contribution. Instructions for building the bootstrap image are at the end. Otherwise, read on.

Hello everyone!
Most of you know that 4 students have been chosen to work with Haiku during the Google Summer of Code(GSoC) 2014. My name is Arvind and I am one of the 4 students(yaay!). I will be improving the ARM port and hopefully make significant progress.
