I built mainline Barebox (2015.03) and Linux (4.0) for Terasic's SoCKit. It was really gratifying to see it boot up successfully into Arch Linux ARM. Now it's time to write some hardware descriptions for the on-die FPGA!

+Steffen Trumtrar I think I initially saw a mention of the Barebox nios2 port and decided to check it out since I was getting frustrated with "the other bootloader" having kind of a messy and inconsistent source tree. I also found Kconfig a lot more familiar to work with. It ended up being exactly what I wanted, so I decided I would try to use it for all future projects. Not sure if those frustrations still hold up, but I consider myself already converted!

A PoE-enabled network moose appliance. Eyes are BlinkM RGB LEDs controlled through I2C bus which can respond to sysfs trigger events. This does just about everything you would expect a networked moose appliance to do, including functioning as an OpenVPN endpoint. Ideas for the future include adding a speech synthsizer and mouth control for the ultimate experience in home moose automation. The project could also greatly benefit from a #BeagleBoneBlackCase giveaway by Adafruit Industries!

Has anyone had success reflashing their RO firmware on the Samsung ARM Chromebook? I'd like to replace it with something that doesn't require pressing ^D to boot the system while in developer mode or risk formatting the stateful partition by pressing space key.

Apparently somebody had success a while ago: https://plus.google.com/115736331550510863558/posts/RqoiZ5Kod62

lemme rephrase that so this doesn't start another dumb flamewar. Microsoft seems to have improved. on the continuum between terrible and great, they are still on the terrible side, but they aren't where they were in 1999...

It's super #USRP2  ethical repair climax! The device could not communicate over the network. After some attempts at firmware debugging, a pathetic looking signal was observed on one of the TXD traces going into the GigE PHY. This observation suggests damage to the trace or the driver controlling the relevant pin on the FPGA. A tiny red wire was placed to recycle the unnecessary TX_CLK path running between the GigE PHY and FPGA. This is possible because Gigabit Ethernet actually uses a separate 125 MHz clock called GTX_CLK. Pin constraints were patched and a new bitstream was generated to use the new signal path. Success! Ettus Research is a really cool company for making the hardware and software accessible for these kinds of modifications.

Is there a Guinness Book of World Records entry for "most CPU cores in a lunchbox?"

At least the SYSFONT=True and missing en.mo.gz bugs are finally squashed after surviving at least three releases...
