I've recently found an inexpensive ($350US) mips64 based netbook
for sale: the Gdium Liberty 1000. Getting NetBSD running on it
looks fun but it needs a framebuffer driver written for it. Given
the lack of serial, this will be a bit challenge. I'd be satisfied
with an unaccelerated driver (genfb) to start but eventually want
an accelerated fb driver.
If you're interested, please me let know.
I don't think the 1000 has much in common with other hpcmips
platforms but I can't think of a better place to put it.
Do we know what kind of graphics chip the thing uses? Do we have
documentation? All genfb needs is a linear framebuffer ( which all
modern chips I've ever seen provide ), an address, width & height in
pixels, stride in bytes, pixel size in bytes. If we can get that from
whatever it's running natively you can just hardcode these values to
have something to start with.
So, yeah, I'd volunteer for the kernel fb and X stuff.
