First steps for the Hurd on L4
     posted by marcus, Thu 31 Jul 2003 09:56:43 PM UTC

The first steps for the Hurd to run on L4 have been done.  A new CVS module "hurd-l4" has been created that holds the source code that is in somewhat releasable form.  So far this is the libl4 user space library for the L4 kernel and laden, the bootloader.

The next steps will be to write down the design for the user space capability system and implement some initial servers to get started.
