Book8088 Status and Todo List


Trying to fix several issues:

  • Minix 2.0.4: has some weird issues around IRQ handling. It gets stuck in readclock (I suspect after every IRQ, because it happens also when using sleep - which needs a hardware clock interrupt - and when printing to serial). The CF uses no interrupt, this explains why Minix 2 is booting at all.

things known to work

  • DOS 6.22 with mTCP network stack and a NE2000 Kinston card
  • Mini 1.7 boots and runs just fine
  • Booting XT-IDE serially with DOS image
  • Booting Minix 2.0 over serial using the Linux version of serdrive from XT-IDE
