Looking at /tmp/qemu.log we find that Linux mapped itself to 0xf0000000,
called a few Openprom functions and because of the bad results decided to
Now we need to implement the Openprom functions for browsing the device tree
and others in romvec.c. For example, the sequence Linux uses to find root
node properties is something like:
node = nextnode(0); // get handle for "/"
ok = getprop(node, NULL, &str); // str should be the first property, for
How can I get this kind of handles from C?
It would be nice to get booting by loading boot sectors working so that
instead of Linux we can try SILO.
