[microblaze-uclinux] back on the air!
I hope this email finds you all well and productive!
Well I survived a week in the Tasmanian wilderness, so happily I can
report that the microblaze uClinux port is back on track!
I've migrated my development platform to linux, and in fairly short
order built a kernel using the new (unsupported) binaries on my website
(www.itee.uq.edu.au/~jwilliams). I uploaded this kernel image to the
board, and it runs straight out of the box (phew!).
From a development environment perspective, my next mission is to get
the key elements of EDK running under wine (basically platgen and
libgen). They should be OK because I think they are native Windows
applications, not requiring the Xygwin compatability layer. I want to
avoid the ridiculous situation of running an application under Xygwin
under wine under linux!
It would also be nice if I could engage some kind of parallel port
tunneling and get the Impact FPGA programming tool working under wine.
Anybody tried this before?
When I'm done fiddling to get my environment setup nicely, I'll be back
into completing elf2flt/userland binary support. I am fairly far down
that track, indeed it was a Cygwin-related issue that stopped me testing
the first application (simpleinit) before my holidays.
 For those interested, there's a bunch of pics of my Tasmanian
adventures featured on my website under "Photo Albums".
