Step 1: Install GNU/L00nix
Step 2: Install ssh
Step 3: put on DMZ
Step 4: Give /g/ the username/password

Lewd. I'm starting to create my own CPU from logic gates right now.

Does that actually exist?

I mean...I get that you could just use the FPGA to build a custom ARM or x86...but would there happen to be a version of Linux that could just straight up run on an FPGA?

see what you do is you program it to crack wifi faster than a GPU can crack wifi

Holy shit, I'm working on the exact same board right now. It's a bit old though OP, digilent has stopped production.

Do you have the 500 or the 1200 fpga.
>>
>>45279539
You would still need to implement a microprocessor on FPGA, how else are you going to boot the kernel? You need instructions and all that jazz or else no software is going to run on it.
>>
>>45279539

umm, no you do have to get a cpu synthesized in the fabric first. But that is pretty straight forward, and running linux on a soft cpu is easyish.

The last time I played with one, on OP's erra fpga it was running at a couple hundred MHz and felt like a 486. Xilinx has a newish family with dual arm9 cores in it.

The cpu's though are not important, it's the cpu's with the fpga fabric that is interesting. You can interface the cpu to just about anything easily.

>running linux

I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you’re referring to as Linux, is in fact, GNU/Linux, or as I’ve recently taken to calling it, GNU + Linux. Linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning GNU system made useful by the GNU corelibs, shell utilities and vital system components comprising a full OS as defined by POSIX.

Many computer users run a modified version of the GNU system every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of GNU which is widely used today is often called “Linux”, and many of its users are not aware that it is basically the GNU system, developed by the GNU Project. There really is a Linux, and these people are using it, but it is just a part of the system they use.

Linux is the kernel: the program in the system that allocates the machine’s resources to the other programs that you run. The kernel is an essential part of an operating system, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a complete operating system. Linux is normally used in combination with the GNU operating system: the whole system is basically GNU with Linux added, or GNU/Linux. All the so-called “Linux” distributions are really distributions of GNU/Linux.
>>
OP, design your own 8 or 16 bit cpu. Use the psram in async mode (doing sync mode at 80MHz was a bitch for me).

Look at bigmessofwires.com for inspiration.

Design your own instruction set, Maybe 1 dozen instructions total, hack up an assembler and count in binary on the led's. That's a good little project that will take only a few % of that fpga.

Hey mister pasta, I was wondering, what was this "peculiar turn of events" RMS refers to?
Mere curiosity, that is all.

Build 12 hour clock. 12:00 -> 1:00 rollover on the hex displays, use timer interrupts to keep track of real time, then have pushbuttons adjust hours and minutes.

>>45279213
I've used that one. It works good.
