Project status

Phase Status Notes
Powers on?
Passes firmware self-test? Front-panel numbers indicate it passes and attempts to boot from network
Working serial console? Haven't managed to get any signal from its serial ports
Framebuffer works? Mine didn't come with a framebuffer, but I added an MCA Gt3i framebuffer. Unfortunately, I get no signal from it
OS boots?
Working GUI?
Working input devices? Uses standard PS/2 peripherals, so theoretically should be fine.
