Progress on ARM?

Dec 26, 2011 at 11:59 AM
Is there any Progress towards getting this to work with Arm? Coming out soon is the new £16 computer, raspberry pi (www.raspberrypi.org) which is capable of running Linux, it has integrated gpu and graphics capable of 1080p video! This would be an awesome platform to get cosmos running on. At the moment Linux dominates this area!

We are definitely interested in the ARM platform, but we have limited resources. Our initial target is i386 platform, as it's a good platform to begin with, and has enough tooling (emulation/virtualization) to support us in the goal..

Our efforts for i386 (debugger, compiler, etc) will help us target different platforms in the future, but right now, we're in (desperate) need for some extra man-power.....

I'm a little confused here. I thought you could run it on all the platforms. Can someone explain to me the difference between x86 and ARM and more importantly... why do we have to change the compiler for every platform?

Thanks in advance

x86 and ARM are not compatible at all, so the compiler needs to create
output for different CPUs.

Different ASM? Or just do the final compiling bit different? I might be thinking of x86 to x64 though,

Thanks!

ARM is completely different. ARM is what most embedded things run.

Oh. Right! Like my phone! Ha ha ha. I think ARM might be best left alone until we can get the current things working!

Which is what we (at least I..) think is best as well... Get next release out (which fixes current compiler issues and has a working asm debugger, which can then also be ported to arm)
