Hi Ralf. This is an experimental system currently in build. Unfortunately the
broken toolchain has prevented completion of an an operational build.
The system currently has two shells:
hsh - The Heirloom Shell
ash - Kenneth Almquist's Shell
The ash shell has some bug fixes applied to the build scripts in order to make
it compatible with Linux based systems.
Shell scripts are initially tested with the Heirloom shell for syntax
portability, and are expected to run on a Bourne compatible shell (which will
probably be ash), in a live environment.
The heirloom shell is version 050706:
The ash shell is ash386-0.2a:
I can give you specific system related information on request, if you require
additional information. (Basically, this is currently a broken Debian, which
will be butchered to remove Debian specifics, a new kernel will be build. The
system will be more like Slackware when it becomes built. My systems currently
run Debian for legacy reasons. I do not like this distribution.
