TADS and Qtads on a developmental RISC-V SBC

For the last couple of weeks I have been experimenting with a Vision5 Starfire RISC-V single board computer. It is one of the earliest viable implementations of the RISC-V instruction set architecture. Up until a recent release of a version of Debian, it didn’t work very well. Very rough around the edges.

Today, I was able to compile and run TADS3 via FrobTads in addition to Qtads which is in the RISC-V version of Debian’s app archives.

Very nice.

PS. Now to do the same thing with the latest version of Raspbian.
