  1. (Also, the source is now in https://github.com/EtchedPixels/FUZIXas the port's been accepted into the main Fuzix distribution.)
  2. ...I should point out that I just got pipes working. Even multistage ones! $ ls /bin/* | grep '^a' | wc ...works. It is, admittedly, not very fast, as it's swapping to disk as it switches between processes, but it works! Incidentally, does anyone have a fast DMA-based memcpy for the FR5969?
  3. Good news, everyone! I've just ported Alan Cox's Fuzix to the MSP430. It'll run on a MSP430FR5969 and supports up to four 23kB user processes via swapping to an SD card. There's a full Unix filesystem and a tonne of software. It's riddled with bugs, but is surprisingly snappy and usable. This is running on a standard MSP430FR5969 Launchpad with the 43oh.com SD card boosterpack plugged into it. The console's via the USB UART. It's riddled with bugs, but there's enough running to be of interest. You can find the source code here: https://github.com/davidgiven/FUZIX/tree/msp430 Here is a somewhat edited transcript from my serial terminal to prove it.
