Amd catalyst not updating to 12 4
I've currently ported bash(1.08) and gcc(1.40), and things seem to work.This implies that I'll get something practical within a few months [...] Yes - it's free of any minix code, and it has a multi-threaded fs.It uses every conceivable feature of the 386 I could find, as it was also a project to teach me about the 386.As already mentioned, it uses a MMU, for both paging (not to disk yet) and segmentation.It is NOT portable (uses 386 task switching etc), and it probably never will support anything other than AT-harddisks, as that's all I have :-(.[...] It's mostly in C, but most people wouldn't call what I write C.Day-to-day development discussions take place on the Linux kernel mailing list (LKML).
The Linux family of operating systems is based on this kernel and deployed on both traditional computer systems such as personal computers and servers, usually in the form of Linux distributions, and on various embedded devices such as routers, wireless access points, PBXes, set-top boxes, FTA receivers, smart TVs, PVRs, and NAS appliances.
When Torvalds released version 0.12 in February 1992, he adopted the GNU General Public License (GPL) over his previous self-drafted license, which had not permitted commercial redistribution. In March 1992, Linux version 0.95 was the first to be capable of running X.
This large version number jump (from 0.1x to 0.9x) was due to a feeling that a version 1.0 with no major missing pieces was imminent.
This has been brewing since April, and is starting to get ready.
I'd like any feedback on things people like/dislike in minix, as my OS resembles it somewhat (same physical layout of the file-system (due to practical reasons) among other things).Despite the limited functionality of the early versions, Linux rapidly gained developers and users.
