Call for Haiku Inc. and Haiku community. RISC-V port

I think the offer should be made anyway. Your situation could change in the future.

A part time contract could also be an option I guess?

@X512 Greetings from Shinjuku-ku!

i believe i have a spare radeon 5450 pcie card laying around, if it’s useful I can throw it in the post to wherever

There should be an official news item on the website about this, don’t you think?

Board delivered just now. But some other parts ordered at Amazon (case, power supply, graphics card, NVMe disk) are not yet.

I know writing code and testing it takes time. And that is ok.

Have there been any noteworthy news in the last ~22 days
since the last reply here in this thread? Just curious.

Umm . . . a whole lot! If you click the link in the post just above yours (this one), you’ll see that Haiku is now booting on the HiFive Unmatched board, and quite a lot is now working. You can scroll through and see the whole process of X512 getting it running on real hardware.
