Plan 9 on Raspberry Pi 2

Fri Feb 06, 2015 8:06 pm

There's a new 9pi2 kernel available in http://plan9.bell-labs.com/sources/contrib/miller which will run on the Raspberry Pi 2. So far it only activates one core; SMP coming soon.

Getting the cores working is just setting the phys startup address to 0x4000008C + 0x10 * core (core is 1 to 3)
Tested on bare-metal here.
