Linux kernel port to the AmigaOne/MAI Teron CX/MAI Teron PX consumer PowerPC motherboards.

The AmigaOne is a new PowerPC ATX mainboard aimed at the consumer market.
It is based on the MAI Logic Teron CX/PX boards.
The "Terrasoft" board is also based on the MAI Logic Teron CX board.

The board is not like other PPC machines e.g PowerMacs, it is similar to a PC ATX board, e.g it uses a VIA Southbridge, except it has a PowerPC CPU and PowerPC specific Northbridge (MAI Logic Articia S).
It also has standard PCI/AGP, DIMM, IDE, PS/2, USB ports.

The board's web site is: http://www.eyetech.co.uk/amigaone

The firmware of the board is not OpenFirmware (like PowerMacs), it is a modified version of "ppcboot/u-boot" (http://ppcboot.sourceforge.net, http://sourceforge.net/projects/u-boot), which is open source.

The aim of this project is to port the Linux kernel to the AmigaOne board.

Work on this has already started, and we are already running Linux 2.4.19 and Linux 2.4.21 on the board, but the kernel port is still in an early stage, and is in need of further work and help.
