On RISC OS 5 port hopes for netbook now in production:

"Personally I was surprised to see (judging by contributors to the RO Open Forums) how many people got involved with the Beagleboard port and related code-enhancing."

Unfortunately the CVS commits tell a different story - despite several people owning beagleboards and a couple of them helping out with testing, so far it's still only myself and ROOL who have submitted code to CVS that helps with the port.

I'm not trying to shame them by saying this, as I'm sure they've got their reasons for not submitting any code yet; I'm just hoping that they're still silently working away on it. If it's only just myself and ROOL who are doing all the programming work then things could take a while longer than I was hoping!

A new HAL and a new set of drivers would have to be written, but overall it should be less work than the total work required for the OMAP port.

Cool - I'll do a braindump to a wiki page so we can keep track of what state the video code is in. I'll post on the forums when it's done.

Yeah, I'm thinking that using an exception handler might be the best approach, or at least something to consider as an interim solution. The ROOL website seems to be down at the moment but I'll raise the issue on the forums when it's back up.
