Registration Details

  • Name: GNU Guix bootstrap seeds
  • System Name:  bootstrap-seeds
  • Type: Official GNU software
  • License: GNU General Public License v3 or later


The next generation bootstrap seeds for GNU Guix.

Thus reducing the number of bytes of binaries needed to build a GNU system down to just 357bytes.

It is written in hex0 assembly (which is just hex with support for ; and # line comments)

Other Software Required:

Zero external dependencies for native binaries as they are expected to run natively on the hardware.

A POSIX compatible kernel for POSIX binaries.

Other Comments:

hex0 can be approximated with: sed 's/[;#].*$//g' $input_file | xxd -r -p > $output_file

kaem-optional-seed can be replaced by any shell of your choice as it is just a minimal shell written in hex0
