This page describes a tentative effort to port illumos-gate to the first generation Raspberry Pi hardware platform. Most critically, this platform contains an ARM11 CPU. This port is a community effort, and not presently associated with any particular corporation.
Those involved at time of writing:
Start at https://github.com/rmustacc/illumos-gate/blob/arm-gate/README.xbuild - the easy way doesn't really work.
Broadly, we need to be able to cross-compile illumos-gate on an amd64 build machine such that it will run on the ARM CPU in the Pi.
