neutrino on this processor?
As is - no. Could it be made to happen - of course. As some one pointed
out a long time ago, given enough financial incentive, the QSSL R&D staff
could be enduced to walk down a street in pink tutus (hi Andrew! .
However, and this is a is a big one, it’ll take an awful lot of financial
incentive - almost certainly more than you’re willing to spend. If you’re
still determined, talk to your sales guy about getting a quote for the work.
One of the problems with no-MMU is that we’d have to make special versions
of all the programs (ls, pidin, stty, etc) - the GNU linker doesn’t leave
enough information in a standard executable to make them usable on
a physical mode system. Alas, the executables for a physical mode system
aren’t in a form that’s usable for a system using the MMU (otherwise
we’d make them that way). Also, we’d have to create a procnto-500 to deal
with whatever other madness the designers did with the chip - an effort
that might approach the resources required to port the OS to a wholly
different type of processor.
