November 23, 2014 posted by Michael Lorenz

When I found out that Ingenic is giving away some of their MIPS Creator CI20 boards I applied, and to my surprise they sent me one. Of course, the point was to make NetBSD work on it. I just finished the first step.

An Internet-Ready OS From Scratch in a Week — Rump Kernels on Bare Metal


August 08, 2014 posted by Antti Kantee

This article describes an experiment in creating an OS by using a rump kernel for drivers. It attempts to avoid going into full detail on the principles of rump kernels, which are available for interested readers from rumpkernel.org.
