I have returned

Sorry for the long delay, but I'm back to trying to update this blog... at least occasionally.

I've been running my tail off at work since we just released our new firmware for our switches, and I'm helping to track down a possibly bad Xorg driver (how I've come to loath silicon motion's linux drivers).

But on the positive side, I have started really porting linux to our board that uses a Freescale MPC8272. I tell you what, we use every damn one of our SCCs and SMCs, plus the FECs as well.

Good news is I've got all those interfaces mostly working and can boot Linux very easily over NFS. (Yes, this just a debug step). I've even had fairly good success porting over our custom modules to the 2.6 way of "thinking".

I have a new appreciation of JTAG, I'll tell you that much!
