Just a short heads up.
With the latest patches posted I beleive that all of klibc is now
buildable in kernel context.
The full repository is available at
To copy the source to a kernel use:
sh cp-to-kernel path/to/kernel
Then to build klibc simply type 'make'.
For now klibc and executables are build unconditionally - something I
beleive we may decide different. But here I need some input what you
The major TODO items:
- fix make clean so we clean out klibc user program files too.
- kbuildtify syslinux - or do we really want that?
- kbuildtify klibc, ripping out what is no longer needed from the old
The last items is starting to look like a rather trivial task now that
all the relevant parts has a working Kbuild file.
Only 'issue' is that directory structure has to change a bit. ipconfig +
nfsmount has to move under kinit.
hpa & others - what do you see as needed before potential -mm inclusion?
