Porting to ARM?


#1

Hi all,

congrats on the work done so far :slight_smile:

How difficult do you think it would be to port the kernel to ARM? Any useful pointers/major road blocks to start delving into this?

Thanks in advance
Marco

Marco, I can’t answer your question, but I can say that I also eagerly await an answer to it :).

I would love to run on ARM but we still have elements that are not fully developed like paging. If someone could show me a simple rust kernel for ARM that can print to the console, and can set up virtual memory, and will also run in qemu, I could easily port Redox


#4

Not sure but will this be of any help?


#5

i can easily be bribed to do testing/debugging on ARM. will need a kernel to work with though and am just taking on rust.

mainly use raspberry pi 3/2B. can more easily help port from there. will see what i can dig up to be a little more helpful.

I would like to see this happen oneday.

Did you try redox of rpi (3b)? If yes, kindly guide me :slight_smile:
Thank you in advance.
