Pre-sleep updates

  • System now boots with Jacob's ELF loader, and returns with my real mode code to reboot into grub, and can do full Linux boot process with SMM monitor.

  • SMM monitor currently breaks ACPI, because it is used for APM ports (0xB2/B3) -- can we fake it well enough, or do we have to chain the old one? (ewww)

  • We have a log console for debug messages that shows up at the top right of the screen

So, both "immediate todos" are complete. Now need new immediate todos... to be discussed tomorrow if we have time. Refactoring is imminent.

The git repository is now publicly accessible: NetWatch git
