We decided to have a coding weekend (the last one) due to approaching deadline for our USB project and I can (again) announce some good news.
Last week we started testing our USB drivers on real hardware. That involves a lot of quick fixes, followed by burning the CD image (or creating bootable USB disk) and rebooting the computer. Not very comfortable. So I decided to polish my script for adding HelenOS to existing GRUB and make it available for everyone.
I am proud to announce that today we were able to control HelenOS with plugged in USB keyboard. Although the abilities of the keyboard and host controller drivers are very limited, it is a huge step forward in our project.
