This is a formal announcement of Lguest64. Most are aware of the little puppies (lguest32, or simply lguest, or in some circles "rustyvisor"). But this time the puppies ate a bit too much. No more lean and mean puppies, now we got big fat lazy ones. Running on the hardware that's too lazy to do full virutalization. Yes, lguest now runs on x86_64! As you know, puppies are young, and so is lguest64. And like most new born puppies, lguest64 might crap on your floor. But if it's in a good mood, it will make it to the door and give you a login prompt (or maybe even ssh into it and run firefox! http://rostedt.homelinux.com/pics/firefox-on-lguest64.png ). lguest64 is still going through a bit of growth pains, but its getting better. It's to a point that we are not that afraid to bring it to the dog show. So for those that love puppies, and want even bigger ones, you can download the code at: git://git.et.redhat.com/kernel-lguest-64.git TODO: Many things! but here's what's on the near future list. - SMP first for host then for guest. We had it working a while ago, but we decided to update to catchup to lguest32, and we broke it. - get closer to lguest32. Rusty just likes to annoy us ;-) - optimization, optimization, optimization (did I say it's still slow?) - oh, and hopefully to get it merged! well, there's lots more to do, but we can think about it later. Want to help? test it out, and let us know how big a mess it made on your floor. -- Steve - To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe linux-kernel" in the body of a message to email@example.com More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html Please read the FAQ at http://www.tux.org/lkml/
