|| ||Tue, 5 Sep 2006 00:15:06 +0200|
Some people might be aware of Zeta linux, an academic project of creating a
virtual architecture, and porting binutils+gcc+linux to it. There have been
already three releases this year (0.3, 0.4 and today, 0.5).
Quick outplot :
* Graphical interface for the emulator, with a (simple) page tables browser.
* the kernel almost boots up to the start of a userspace process.
* use binutils-2.17, gcc-4.1.1 and linux-2.6.17.
Everything you want to know about it is on http://orzel.freehackers.org/zeta
This is of interest mostly to people who, like me, want to know more about
the toolchain internals and linux core stuff internals (== not drivers,
subsystems or filesystems).
The next release will focus on writing the handbook (documentation, howto's,
