Re: jtag kit THX
That would be great! Still trying to determine how i will
proceed in the hopes of doing some dev on StrongARM. TMTOWTDI is what
am seeing. 'Thank you all' for the pointers as am still absorbing the
possibilities. Please keep them coming if you want to.
Now finally am getting a glimpse of what one is up to in porting a arch on over.
The most straight forward method i have as yet considered is
to just get a StrongARM w/board with PCI and ISA slots and install
it on a box. Then dual boot both NetBSD and OpenBSD on that system.
Then to test the port have a Cerfcube that i upload the port over to..
Testing it on that dev system. The problem currently has been that
i was advised by the Cerfcube manufacturer that the last ppl to try
this had to send back to flash the JTAG stuff a dozen times back to
the manufacturer. This due to the fact they use a proprietary boot
loader which requires a jtag kit to change. (They suggested that 1 was
about 10k to buy.) Therefore will be looking into the advise i have
received so far which is greatly appreciated. Since i know zippo
about JTAG this should be interesting;-) Sure hope there is some
good getting started documentation on this. Does the plan appear
reasonable or !
