As promised, I wrote up my experiences porting L4Re and Fiasco.OC to the Ben 


There are, in fact, nine articles describing the process, which I accept might 
be a bit too much reading for the casual inquirer, especially as the narrative 
wanders from one problem to be solved to the next. But the summary should 
cover the main tasks that need to be done in this kind of work.

Since getting things working on the Ben, I have also persuaded the software to 
work on the Letux 400 notebook computer, which is a variant of the Skytone 
Alpha-400 product that did the rounds almost ten years ago (although I was 
probably completely unaware of it at that time):


I hope that some of the information I have shared is useful to others and 
perhaps encourages someone else to port the software to a device of their 
choosing. Good luck to that person!


P.S. As noted before, the patches are here:
