[GSOC 2024] Proposal: ARM64 Port

The last few days, I have been exploring with the idea of completing the ARM64 port of Haiku for GSoC 2024.

Here, I have written a formal proposal to submit to the program. Looking forward to your feedback!


I second your proposal.

My own interest in an ARM port is driven by the (Arm powered) MNT Reform laptop, see thread . My aspiration is to run Haiku in a Virtual Machine atop Sculpt (Genode) so your proposed VM port would be ideal.

Stop Press: MNT launched a processor module for the Reform based on the same RK3588 chip as your Orange Pi. So if you do get Haiku running on bare metal on your SBC, I know a lovely laptop that is ready for it!
