I haven't really had the time to write anything lately. Don't know really why. Anyway, I've got the laptop now. Very nice, indeed, except for the Winmodem with only a binary kernel module for Linux 2.2.12 (which I don't use). Anyway, I'm using for pretty much of the coding nowadays. This weekend, I was on a funeral in Falun (for my grandfather's woman). After that, I was out in Uppsala for the night, played some basketball on Sunday and did some cleaning of the appartment.

Of course, that's not everything. :) I hacked the initial_ramdisk and fat servers to more-or-less work; the FAT12 code seems almost complete now. I'll just get everything together and start doing the VFS calls, and we'll very soon have (hopefully) full read-support for FAT filesystems. Isn't that great indeed?

Of course, FAT is just a first step; ext2 or others would be cooler but is more work. Besides, FAT is needed anyway, so someone'd better do it.

I got a confirmation on the laptop order today. It'll show up next thursday. Neat.

We released chaos 0.0.2 yesterday. You can get it from here.

Hoodeladey, the VGA server works again! Finally, we can get to do some serious work. However, there seems to be some problem with the mutex code (sometimes the kernel stack overflows). I guess you can't get to be completely happy, huh? Anyway, we will fix this as soon as possible, of course.

I've ordered a new laptop now. A Dell Latitude 400LS with pretty hot gear. I can't really wait until it arrives...

I've finally took the time to fix the 3c509 and IPv4 servers. Now, chaos can get pinged. Next mission: Let chaos ping. :)

There are of course much to do regarding the networking support, but I think we'll put VFS at a higher priority, since so much else is totally dependant on it being steady.

I've been struggling lately with reconfiguring some LDAP stuff in Lotus Notes. It wasn't as easy as I first though. The darn piece of crap is totally uncooperatively. If our whole business wasn't so dependent on it, I would probably throw it out the window... :-/

We've put a new snapshot on the download page. It's much smaller than the previous one, and much better. Please try it out and see what you can make out of it.
