I'd like to get my Hurd partition booting again myself. I upgraded
to an a7n8x nForce2 motherboard with some pretty fancy IDE
controller chipset and old gnumach has failed me!

Now I'm faced with reinstalling the cross-development environment,
although I built the serial cross-debugger for my little Netwinder
firewall/router/server so I'm ahead in that respect.

My great reward for doing this is that when it invariably locks up on
bootup, I will be able to trace up to the subroutine which is causing
the problem and file a bug report here.

Actually its kind of cool, and you will learn a lot about compiling gdb
and cross compilers if you build the environment. I really should roll
up a new gnumach2 kernel here and send in some feedback, but
I've only recently left Woody behind and upgraded my main system
to Sid. The Netwinder still runs Woody and I'll leave it like that until
the next release, its mainly a packet tosser and it works great.

Hehe I could probably use Bochs or something to run Hurd faster
on this new system under emulation than it ran native on the PII
450's :-)

Have fun, good luck!

You'd better give up from using GNU Mach 2, unless you can afford to spend many
ours debugging it via serial link.  Or you can try another computer, but there
is probability that it will be signficantly more unstable than GNU Mach 1.

Yes, I now :(

The point is that I would like to play with the microkernel and, as far
as I know, there is no development in version 1. Is this right? Only
maintenance/bugs corrections, ...
