Subject: Tux3 kernel port, latest snapshot
Date: Friday 19th September 2008 10:25:01 UTC (over 9 years ago)
Hi all, Pretty soon we will make these Tux3 patches easy to get as snapshots from http://tux3.org, but for now I have to go diff my git tree each time I want one and email to everybody instead of posting a nice tidy URL. Not a problem the first few times... I added Maciej's superblock loading code (slightly massaged) to the Tux3 code, which up to now has been little more than a cut and paste of ramfs. It is still not significantly more than that, except Tux3 now expects to be mounted on a block device (I mount it on a file) and it will load a superblock from that device. Rather stylishly doing this at the bio API level, which was the subject of the most recent Tux3 University session. Which incidentally was lead by Maciej, who now officially takes on the role of our bio transfer goto guy. Talk about running directly on the metal, this is it. Well, compared to FUSE it is. Now we want to think about making a filesystem appear in the space fomerly occupied by this demo. Regards, Daniel P.S.: Next Tux3 U session is Tuesday, 19th September, 20 oclock Pacific time.
