Ognyan Kulev:

Ok, thanks for your reply! The reason for me asking is that I'm writing
a simulator [1] and would like to focus on targets that the Hurd might
run on. It is in a very early stage so doing full x86 simulation is out
of the question for the moment.

Just curious: what makes this simulator different than Bochs[1] (except
the platform)?  Is it the integrated debugger?

The main difference is that GUSS will support several targets, not just
x86 (Pentium) -- and it will have many profiling facilities and complex break- and watchpoints (conditional break/watch:es using guile-scripts). For example,
to my knowledge, Bochs does not gather branch statistics.

:-) I was really impressed by the log[2] that shows the Hurd running on

Yeah, it is cool.  I wonder how bit-rotten the code is.  I guess that
code for GNUmach has not changed that much (not as much as the Hurd code anyway)

Hm, I wonder why the second link is not included in the home page (or I
didn't search enough).

The reason for that is that the code is not yet commited to CVS repository, and I do not want people fetching the code from the repository and then complaining
about missing features :)
