The biggest problem I see with ELKS is that it has a lot of features, and 90% of said features are either broken, unimplemented, or half-functional. Furthermore, we're so lacking in knowledgeable kernel developers with TIME available to work on the project that it's not going to go anywhere.
Compounding the problems is the fact that bcc has proven time and time again to be a very volatile compiler package, to the point that even one version revision can mean the difference between successful compilation or errors galore.
On a side note, I'm developing an OS for the 6502/65C02/65816 line of CPUs from Western Design Center, if anyone's interested in that kind of stuff.

The existing project is as good as dead and it's probably easier to just turn it into what you need than worry about breaking the existing code.Agreed. We can keep the current version for historical purposes, and if someone wants to build a better OS for ancient machines, there are more popular and better designs than the 8088.Alan - To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe linux-8086" in the body of a message to majordomo@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxMore majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html__________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!?Tired of spam?
