I'm pleased to announce that the latest erlang R10B-5 has been ported to run
on linksys nslu2, complete with SAE and openssl support, but with HiPE
For those unfamiliar with this device, see the following links:
It's basically a tiny XSCALE based network appliance (266MHz CPU, 32M RAM)
that allows you attach USB devices, with very low power consumption and
I'd think it's a perfect little node for Erlang. The packaging erlang.mk and
associated patches are checked in
and binary ipkg will be available as soon as it's built on the official
The next step is try to get it cross build as the complete native
compilation took about 10 hours.
Does anyone know what it takes to port HiPE to ARM? And how much performance
gain can one expect?
