    Not really. I'm talking about people who are targetting Linux already, they're just doing so from OS X. They're mostly using the same tools that they'd be using on Linux.

    You start the Windows kernel with kexec in exactly the same way that you start the Linux kernel with kexec - load it, generate the appropriate handoff data and jump to the entry point. kexec-tools...

    This has precisely nothing to do with secure boot. Michael tried booting a 64-bit Linux distribution on a system with 32-bit firmware. He'd have exactly the same failure if he tried to boot 64-bit...

    …especially when, it turns out, there's no support in upstream X or the kernel for this part anyway. Silicon Motion submitted some patches for a framebuffer and X driver, but they all had non-free...

    Wow. Well, from a practical perspective, there's almost no benefit running a native driver instead of vesa on that hardware. It probably does mean that someone's going to have to write a KMS driver,...

    It has a 32-bit UEFI implementation, and so you'll need a 32-bit UEFI install image. Most distributions don't provide one, because http://mjg59.dreamwidth.org/26734.html

    Which of them? The only server GPUs I've seen in the past few years are G200SE variants, rn50/es1000 and Aspeed - and we have KMS drivers for all of them.

    As confirmed by the XMir developer here: https://twitter.com/RAOF_47/status/371117986167263234 . You'll be apologising to Daniel, I guess?

    What is? The commit Michael references as fixing the problem is in the Mir libraries that I'm running.

    This is still broken as of revision 1007, presumably because corresponding code needs to land in Xmir.

    The code in that branch provides infrastructure for fixing the problem, it doesn't actually fix the problem.

    What I expect is that if you're encouraging people to test software, you explicitly warn them about known security issues.

    The only abstraction is that XMir may not be aware of the VT switch around suspend/resume. But in that case that's a bug in XMir - being unaware of the VT switch results in input events continuing to...

    No, Xmir has exactly as much access to hardware as Xorg does. All rendering is still carried out by the xorg drivers.
