Well, it's April, and the work on uDSL continues.
I blame my discovery of UnionFS. It makes my dream of a unified ramless extension system real.
Well, that, and the advances in things like udev and a minor patch to the loop kernel module (nothing big, just that my kernel now supports a full whopping 1M loop devices.)
That, UnionFS and SquashFS put together let me make a 10M DSL core with the ability to add any software you want at no extra charge.
Well, some extra charge. from my calculations, you'll need an aditional 64k of ram per extension you add on.
Additionally, everything's being cross-compiled from scratch for two target platforms: i386 PC and G3 Mac.
