Ahoy mateys! 'Tis the Yarrwin blog!

The OS for pirates! Operatin' on the High Seas!

Yarrwin project news and development. Some other stuff thrown in for good measure.

Now booting, yarr... leeg March 7, 2006

Yarrwin now boots! :-) It's still entirely based on Apple Darwin (currently 8G32, a.k.a. 8.4.0) and using darwinbuild for the build process. It also doesn't boot very far; I'm currently looking into which Darwin projects I actually need to include in order to get a functional OS. The initial Yarrwin will be based on this list with as little superfluosity as possible.

I'll write up some instructions in a tick. There are a couple of gotchas to fix (ApplePlatformExpert::getGMTTimeOfDay doesn't succeed at the moment, and in6_ifattach on lo0 fails) but once that's fixed we're still staring at "Still waiting for root device". That's because not enough drivers to *find* the root device have been loaded; the kernel and kexts have been found by the secondary bootloader.
