Marvell Open-RD Client/Base

Hi,

After some years without NetBSD (GNU/Linux was here), i'm very happy to 
use NetBSD on my HP laptop.

But i've got a Marvell Open-RD Client. Is it possible to install NetBSD 
on this ? Which port/kernel do i need?

If it is not supported by NetBSD, i may try to help (i'm not a 
programmer) or loan my Open-RD to a netbsd dev.

Thanks beforehand

Bruno

I know Open-RD to be an almost equal to SheevaPlug.  And, we have not
supported SheevaPlug yet.  I will begin this one of these days.

Thanks,

The "base" is the same, but with 2 Gb Ethernet port, 7 usb 2.0, VGA (sis
volary chipset), 2 sata (1 esata) and some other thing.
It can be a real computer/nettop. With low power need and a fast cpu
(1200MHz).

For now, i'll continue to use it with GNU/Linux (debian).

Thanks

Bruno

FriendlyArm MINI2440 on NetBSD

Hi again,

I have now fairly good (i.e., it works for me) support for the
MINI2440 on NetBSD with support for the following:
- S3C2440 UART
- DM9000 (MAC+PHY)
- S3C2440 SD Controller
- S3C2440 DMA Controller
- S3C2440 IIS Controller
- FriendlyArm 3,5" LCD Display
- S3C2440 USB Host Controller (OHCI)
- S3C2440 Touch Screen
- UDA1341TS audio codec

Currently, support for three things on the S3C2440 are missing:
- S3C2440 NAND Controller
- S3C2440 USB Device Controller
- S3C2440 RTC

I've also created a stage2 bootloader for use with u-boot, which
ensures that the value of bootargs is passed to the NetBSD kernel.
At this point I have only tested the code with the 64Mb version of the
FriendlyArm MINI2440.

All the code is available in a Git repository[1] and is based on the
netbsd-5 code base.
Progress can be followed on my webpage[2].

Questions and comments are more than welcome.
