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!
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!
