Hello, I'm here to announce that grub2 port for yeeloong has already had
its first output. You can see it here: (Thanks
to Robert Millan for hosting the image)
On the image you can see standard shell waiting for input.
What already works: booting as ELF from pmon, loading modules, graphics
output if gfx card is already inited (is a case when booted from pmon),
platform-independent parts
What doesn't work: keyboard and disks
Not checked: linux booting (works on qemu)
It also has stubs (e.g. "rtc" is just counting number of calls) and
hardcodes (e.g. RAM size) but is already something.
get mips branch of
./configure --target=mipsel --with-platform=yeeloong
Create a font.bin as explained here:
./grub-mkimage  -O elf -o grub.elf -d . -f font.bin sm712 gfxterm sh normal
Boot it as if it was linux kernel
Enjoy starring at unresponsive prompt
