How to display the terminal through VIP

Hi  

 

My environment is DE0 board and uClinux-20110630. 

 

I can boot the uClinux kernel and operate it. 

 

I want the shell terminal displays on screen through DE0 VGA instead of screen on my host device 

 

Althought I study a lot of information such as adding hardware of VGA controller and frame buffer into SOPC, I don't know how to connect with that. 

 

Therefore I really need the design flow or studied direction to solve the problem 

 

Could you give me some suggestion 

 

Thank you very much

You'll need to find info on 'dumb' frame buffer displays for Linux. There might be some stuff there for 'console' as well as X displays. 

 

Otherwise you need to find a simple bitmap font and do it yourself! 

Not that difficult provided you don't need to support any/many escape sequences. 

If the 'console' is likely to be hidden, can be worth saving the raw character stream instead of the bitmap - much faster.

I would study the key word "dumb". 

 

Thank you for your reply.
