    Running Hurd Under Bochs x86 Emulator
    Contributed by Anonymous on Sunday, May 12 @ 22:02:24 BST

    The GNU/Hurd runs under Bochs! Robert Millan has uploaded a working disk image, as reported at KernelTrap. They even have a screenshot of the action. The full story...

    Joy: Updated like the KernelTrap story -- apparently the images aren't stable enough for wide use. Once they get done properly, you'll be able to find them here.

    This image is in experimental stage, as explained here:

    Its installation is not even complete and has a lot of problems. Please wait a few days untill we fix the problems and release a working image, thanks.

    I'd like to try this out, but none of the web links above seem to work. Can somebody fix this?

    Shouldn't it be called CMU/Hurd?

    I tried this a few months ago with the H1 images;

    running bochs on my powerbook (debian ppc).

    It also works, and no need for special images :

    you can safely install from the CDs, actually.

    Be prepared to wait for a long time though,

    bochs is really slow, at least on ppc.
