managarm running kmscube on Mesa DRI + softpipe (this is not using Mesa's offscreen rendering like all other hobby OS do).

managarm's roadmap to Wayland:
✓ DRM drivers for Bochs and virtio graphics
✓ libdrm
✕ virtio hardware rendering
✓ Mesa (including GBM and EGL)
✕ libudev
✕ Weston

he he, looks like I had the excact same idea for the look of my panic screen :P

I don't have an OS (yet?), but I've been thinking of making something small and simple to showcase my C compiler in an unusual/new environment (not much new/unusual in DOS, Windows, Linux or MacOS).

And there you go, someone just did it!

They took my compiler and my friend's assembler and linker from RetroBSD (AKA BSD 2.11) and squeezed them into a smaller PIC32 MIPS microcontroller (64KB RAM, 256KB Flash) and now we have a ROM BASIC, er, scratch that, Flash C system!

I guess that compiler is useful by now :v

For those trying to figure out the relevant specs (since trying to sort it out from the PIC32 specs along side everything else can be somewhat confusing):

  • MIPS at 50MHz
  • 256KB ROM
  • 64KB RAM
  • Both text and graphics mode
    • Graphics mode is 256×224 4bpp
  • Audio playback seems to use DMA

Graphics mode eats up nearly half the RAM though (which means no double buffering hence why the screen flickers badly in the second video). The microcontroller can come in several speeds so I had to look up at the pic to see the exact model in use. The speed certainly makes software rendering easy enough, though I guess the memory limit is still a pain.

It's been useful (or usable?) for a while now. "While" depending on what you want/need. Mac OS X support is recent and so is float support in scanf() and strtod(). Unreal mode support has been there for a year. Proper preprocessor (ucpp) has been included for about a year and a half. Floats were added two years ago. DPMI support is even older. Linux and Windows support were added three years ago. MIPS support (in RetroBSD) is some four years old.

Yeah, graphics without dedicated on-display memory is expensive. Especially on this lower-end chip. RetroBSD runs on a chip with 128KB RAM, 512KB Flash at 80MHz.

There are better MIPS microcontrollers. Like the PIC32MZ series with up to 512KB RAM running at 200 MHz (also has an FPU, can have external memory and much more).

Interesting. hardware is too limited though. I am more comfortable with mini PCs. Do you have CI20 board, Alex?

I have been using it for my loader code. In fact, my whole loader.sys file is built with SmallerC. Most of the code is C with a little bit of Asm.

I have even had some of my readers ask me questions about SmallerC and why they can't get their code to work. With a few modifications to their code, their loaders work just fine, compiled with SmallerC.

Occasionally running AOSP ART tests on one at work. If you have enough RAM and storage, you can compile larger pieces of code with Smaller C (e.g. itself) and then use binutils for MIPS to make binaries (this is exactly how I test MIPS support in the compiler).

Yeah, was saying it more like "proven" (as in, actually seen proper use outside its original scope).

Looks like the screenshot I posted was also moved, could it be moved back?

SUCCESS!
After hours of toiling I finally cracked the nut that is VESA and fonts.
Here is a single line of text in 1024x768 glory.

I haven't posted here for a really long time, and xOS is inactive but I am working on a rewrite of it in C. Hopefully I can reach the same stage. Anyway, I was looking back at my GitHub commits, and decided why not?

xOS looked like this in its first commit. Each window is in its own task.

And this was its first image background. I still like this image, though.

Cheers!
