A good time to learn x86 assembly language? [Updated]The sources to Aleph1's PC card software are now available online. The package includes versions 3.07 and 2.35 of the PC card software, Windows and DOS drivers to control Acorn-architecture hardware, and various scripts and ROM images. The source code is released under the GPL.
The software drives Aleph1's range of hardware upgrades that use sub-200Mhz Intel compatible processors, allowing users to run programs and operating systems built for the x86 platform. This usually involves Microsoft Windows 95 and 98.
The move to open source the package was announced in August, earlier this year.
Update at 20:19 7/11/2005
The source code and pre-built software have been split up into individual zipfiles and a mirror of the Aleph1 support site is also now available. See the link below for details.
