Arch Hurd i686 Core 2010-08-25

"Arch Hurd is a derivative work of Arch Linux porting it to the GNU Hurd system with packages optimised for the i686 architecture. Our goal is to provide an Arch-like user environment (BSD-style init scripts, i686-optimised packages, use of the pacman package manager, rolling-release, and a KISS set up) on the Hurd which is stable enough for use, if not as a primary OS, at least as something to consider as a dual-boot option. Currently we provide a LiveCD for users to install or try Arch Hurd for themselves, and provide an installation guide covering its use, as well as an alternate installation guide for users for whom the LiveCD is not an option, for whatever reason."

Hurd Live Install 1273300101

"I've created one live cd that is able to install a Debian GNU/Hurd
system. It can install grub2 and includes all the debian archives
necessary to complete the installation.

The image is available as an xz-compressed iso image under [0]. You can
download it via http or BitTorrent (hopefully).

The installer lives in an mercurial repository under [1], there is a
local checkout on that server so you can browse the most recent version
there."

"This LiveCD is different because it uses the Hurd kernel replacement instead of using the Linux kernel. The Hurd uses a set of servers sitting on top of a microkernel (GNU Mach) to provide kernel services. The alternative kernel design is a monolithic kernel like Linux where you are obliged to unload and load modules as root. In the Hurd when you use the `ps -ef' command, you'll see processes for your microkernel, TCP/IP stack, filesystems, terminals and more! /dev/null isn't some mysterious bit-bucket that the kernel takes care of, it is a running process in userland. And that's just the start -- there is the idea of a superunprivileged user, setting translators, neighbourhurds and more. Other LiveCDs don't have these features; they don't run the Hurd.

The Hurd aims to enrich the user's life by eliminating arbitrary limitations from the system. To some degree it succeeds, and to some degree it is still defficient -- the current Mach microkernel has been identified as the source of some of these defficiencies. Work is being completed on porting the Hurd
to a microkernel called L4. It is expected that this migration will fix the defficiencies to an extent. This Hurd LiveCD is about getting YOU to use it as a technology demonstrator -- and it's about getting YOU to join and help."
