Date: Sun, 17 Nov 2019 10:31:36 +0100 From: Jens Staal <staal1978@...il.com> To: musl@...ts.openwall.com Subject: [preview] Aalbus : a musl/clang/libc++ distro Dear all, I recently got a direct e-mail asking about the progress of this hobby OS and shared a preview archive: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Vg1nJQulRWoOaqLKPY0fewDIwRHPCgWa It might be nice to get some extra eyeballs on it. The archive is surprisingly big compared to my previous musl/clang/libc++ gentoo stage 4. Perhaps due to pkgsrc (which also has a tendency to pull in lots of dependencies for each package).. Brief background: Name/mascot: The name/mascot comes from the Lovecraftian giant albino penguin Aptenodytes albus: https://lovecraft.fandom.com/wiki/Albino_penguin Toolchain : musl/clang/libc++ + elftoolchain Package manager: pkgsrc shell: mksh editor: vis (-->vi) Several alternative libraries (libedit, gettext-tiny, netbsd-curses, skarnet,...) utilities: a mix of sbase/ubase, Heirloom and (Net)BSD (+freegrep) man: mandoc+neatroff I had hoped to use nbase as major provider of general utilities but when I managed to build it most binaries crashed with a core dump so I went back to sbase. Some major TODOs still are to build/package syslinux and linux kernel and figure out how to make a bootable live ISO.
