Hello there. Just wanted to add a few words.Please note that this project is useful also as an OS running on top of 8086 emulator for mobile phones. It would be nice to have a Linux-like machine inside your Nokia, which will probably never be capable of running full i386 emulation.

The website could use a little work,Definitely, what we need is a wiki site so that everybody can contribute.I am a bit disappointed that Rask Lambertsen's GCC port and the Dioscuri emulator (which runs ELKS!) are not mentioned on the website, come on guys, it can't be that much work to add some hyperlinks...every site aside from the sourceforge project page and cix.co.uk listed on the main site is inaccessible. Also, I've come across some mail archives other than what's lited on vger, which does not exist. Or... maybe there's a 16-bit gcc patch someone's been cooking and needs some authentic iron to try it out on?Yes please, Rask Lambertsen has done a great job in patching GCC for the 8086. Compiling ELKS under GCC is not going to be easy but IMHO will be very beneficial for the wider embedded user community and hence will/might increase the popularity of ELKS.However, having said that, any contribution is welcome. Just work on what you are interested in and publish the result on a webpage.Hans www.ht-lab.com - To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe linux-8086" in the body of a message to majordomo@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
