Re: Anyone port to AArch64?

Hey jickster Thanks for your expert advice! After a bit of tinkering, I've got the REPL showing up over UART on a Raspberry Pi 3 (AArch64) under QEMU. It also runs on hardware. Now I've got to diagnose a few issues with UART input, but that shouldn't be bad at all, then I'm off to get the framebuffe...

Re: Anyone port to AArch64?

Is there any bare metal MicroPython port on ARM (32 or 64 bit) other than this one for RPi Zero. Not that I've found. Hence I intend to create one or port an existing one over. From what I've found, QEMU gets a bit squirrelly when you're trying to emulate AArch64 (using the -M raspi3 setting) with ...

[/quote] The thought is that if I'm running it on the bare metal, it'll make a difference as well as run properly under QEMU Raspi3...

Anyone port to AArch64?

Hello, I think I tried to post earlier, but for whatever reason it's not showing up so I'll try again! Has anyone already ported MicroPython to AArch64? I know a few people are targeting older ARM chips for the RPi1 and 2, but I'm thinking of getting it going on the 3. I'd rather not reinvent the wh...
