[REQUEST] ATL1 driver support (1969:1048)

[REQUEST] ATL1 driver support (1969:1048)
Hello,

Since gPXE is dead and no one answered there, I'd like to ask here if it's possible to add ATL1 native driver?

I'm not familiar with architecture of iPXE. Also, there are no documents about "how to write a native driver for ipxe in 5 minutes for dummies".

Thanks.

This is probably a message that is better suited for the mailing-list. I do know that a new driver framework has been put in place, and there is supposed to be a skeleton driver in place that is supposed to show what is needed to create a new driver with minimum code size. You might want to look at the realtek, intel and the new via drivers (http://ipxe.org/gsoc/via) that use the new skeleton if you feel like starting out yourself. Any further communication about this topic should probably be directed at the mailing-list.

Just for your information, iPXE is a fork of the gPXE project, so it is technically the same codebase, just developed further along. If you're already familiar with gPXE you should be able to get up to speed on iPXE fairly quickly.
