Definetally we need some machines with Picasso, Spectrum and Piccolo
in the same room - and we have next weekend :-)
As Klaus Burkert (Mr. Picasso) and Frank Neumann (Piccolo-involved) are
coming, too, i expect some problems will hopefully vanish soon.
I would like to discuss the following matter:
Currently it is impossible (is it?) to configure the kernel in a way
that both, Picasso (Z2) and Piccolo/Spectrum (Z3) can be compiled at the
I would hence like to divide the device driver into a Z2-only and Z3-only
Also i would like to add multiple-boards support, so that one can have
more than one board in one machine. For this i need more information
about how to access/make availabl to specific devices such as grfx. It should
function the way the SCSI-devices are recognized.
