I'm pleased to be able to say that I have a new ARM port of NetBSD
running, this time on the ARM Integrator/AP development board.
Although I've only had it running on an ARM920, it should be fairly
straight-forward to bring this port up with any ARM processor that has an
MMU and for which an integrator configuration module is available.
Suitable CPU boards which are currently available include the CM720T and
I was going to attach the dmesg output here, but unfortunately we had a
major thunder storm here in Cambridge last night, and the resulting power
outage has finally caused the power supply in the rather ancient machine
that I was using as a file-server for the board to meet its maker. Prior
to that, the system was up running multi-user for about four days running
a variety of programs, including a gnumake -j30 of the C compiler.
Supported features of the board (so far) are:
- Twin serial ports.
- Normal clock and independent statclock; statclock uses statistical
jitter and will switch to a higher frequency when profiling.
- Interrupt controller.
- PCI bus with 3 slots (fxp ethernet controller)
Features not yet supported are:
- compact PCI bus
- keyboard/mouse controller
Unless anyone has any specific objections to the name, I propose to commit
the code under the port name "integrator" over the next few days.
