2008.07 Development

As it is the last day in June it seems very unlikely that I will be able to finish a fully working OS by the end of the day. Thus a sneaky rename is in order. The current software list for Felix-Dev can be found here and is being updated as each bit of software gets compiled and installed. Unlike my previous attempt where I was basically upgrading all of the software for the current running OS I have gone back to the LFS way. This is a completely fresh build made on a blank hard drive partition to avoid any contamination from the host.

Using the latest software does bring some problems but thankfully the only two I have ran into so far have been fixed. Thanks to “ChrisS67” from Linux From Scratch, GNU C Library 2.8 is now compiled and at this moment is running through it’s test suite.
