just a quick report about what the status of my work is and what
I'm doing right now -
- Kernel updated to Linux 2.0.0. Kernels from 1.99.8 on aka
pre2.0.8 will need the yet unreleased Milo 0.27. Given the
few time I had recently there are some known bugs and uncompleted
new features in this release like ptrace(2) which should now
partially be working and be good enough for strace (not tested ...).
- Milo 0.27 is mostly ready for release. I've run into some
problems with it on the SNI ARC firmware, that's why we're
still delaying it's release.
Stoned, Andy, Dave and I have discussed the problem with the ARC
firmware more than once again during the last weeks and we decieded
to publish the entire Milo sources. So Milo 0.27 will no longer be
- Upgrade and cleaup of binutils. I've got a snapshot of binutils
960606 running on my system. While I don't want yet my patches
have into Cygnus release mainly due to the MIPS a.out stuff it
contains I've used this snapshot to prepare patches for the
soon to expect next official release.
- Upgrade and cleanup of glibc. I'm now running a snapshot of GNU libc
960609 and have prepared binary releases of it for little and big endian
targets. Right now as I'm writing this I'm trying the first build of
GNU libc with shared libs. Looks good so far :-)
I still have to do some Linux/MIPS related paperwork now that I've got a
bit more time again. I just wanted to get all this digital stuffs out
as you people are waiting for it much more than on this burocracy.
Sorry to those of you who are actually waiting for snailmail from me ...
