It has been a while for me since I've had time to do much on this project, to say that 2006 was a busy year for me would be an understatement!
Anyway, it's now 2007 and I've got a PegasosII as well as an Efika! Yaaay!
I haven't had huge success with the PPC Linux side of things to date, I feel almost like I'm the only one out there who can't seem to get X started on his Peg :-( But MOS is running fine there.
Now to the Efika-since that's the end goal for this project's software to live and work, it needs a good case to protect it. I've got a great design in mind, made of burl maple hardwood, with metal where appropriate for holding the board and for safety :-) I even have an excellent place to work in, thanks to a friend who builds custom guitars in his own, fully equipped shop.
So, it's on to the case building, then on to getting Megatunix on MorphOS. Hmmm, 230 megs of custom libraries to fire up X and have it be useful, or.. sub-20 megs for the whole shebang!
