Subject: [RFC 0/6] Nintendo 64 Linux port
Date: Fri, 25 Dec 2020 19:05:03 +0200
Message-ID: <20201225190503.12353218812e1655f56f0bf8@gmx.com> (raw)

Hi all,

Here's a port for the Nintendo 64.

At least two people have done such a port before, but didn't submit.
This is not based on either.

RFC because I'm not sure if it's useful to have this merged. Old,
niche, and limited platform.

"But why", I hear from the back. Having Linux available makes it easier
to port emulators and fb or console games.
www.linux-mips.org/wiki/Nintendo_64 can be edited to no longer say
"vaporware".
Most importantly, because I can.

There's a ready ROM at https://github.com/clbr/n64bootloader/releases
for folks with a flashcart to play with.

- Lauri
