This group is not part of the GNU Project.

The goal of this project is to port the OSKit to the PowerPC, then change OSF Mach to use this, and to run the GNU Hurd on it.  Currently, there is only a preliminary port of the Hurd to the version of OSF Mach on which MkLinux runs, but unfortunately this version of Mach only supports older PowerMacs.  The OSKit will provide modern device drivers from Linux, and OSF Mach will use it in a way like GNUMach does.

Registration Date: Fri 20 Jun 2003 03:31:41 PM UTC
License: Other license - Both oskit and osfmk are free software. But we must see what kind of license is adequate for the patches. Of course, we will license the patches with free software licenses (with GPL when possible).
Development Status: 2 - Pre-Alpha

The project has been split on three different subprojects:

- oskit work

  Porting the oskit to PPC. Some work on libkern is in progress.

  for the integration with OSkit.

- hurd/glibc work

  Prepare the Hurd to work on osfmk. Some work by Peter Bruin is
  already available.
