Hi all,

I stumbled on this project some days ago:


This microcontroller-focused operating system is the continuation of RetroBSD, a 2.11BSD-based OS targeting only the MIPS-based PIC32MX7. DiscoBSD is multi-platform, as it also supports Arm Cortex-M4 STM32F4 devices.

Do you think it'd be possible to make it run on the Pyra's M4 CPU ?

Cheers, Magic Sam
 
It's certainly possible, but it would take a bit of porting. Additionally, I don't know how you would get a prompt
 
Hi @Risca :)

The README file mentions using the serial port to log into DiscoBSD:

Communication with DiscoBSD requires a serial port. A USB to TTL device or the built-in VCP USB serial port on development boards can be used.
Code:
$ cu -l /dev/cuaU0 -s 115200


Cheers, Magic Sam
