    Got that latest or greatest scoop? Perhaps you have some important news for the Debian community? Submit a news item!

    Or perhaps you’ve written a rather ground breaking insight into some aspect of Debian and you feel compelled to share it with others? Knock up a longer editorial article and send it to the editors.

    General feedback should be sent to staff@debianplanet.org

    The place to get help on a Debian problem (after reading docs) or to just chat and chill is #debian on irc.oftc.net.

    Many of the Debian Planet staff live there so pop by and say hello.

    Debian Planet also has its own channel on the same network called #debianplanet.


    GNU/Hurd 0.3 Upgrade
    Submitted by d00d on Sunday, August 18, 2002 – 22:15
    HurdThe Hurd interfaces have recently gone through an incompatible change to prepare support for long files. The consequence is a chicken and egg problem for upgrading to GNU 0.3. Marcus Brinkmann just posted an instruction summary on how to upgrade your existing Debian GNU/Hurd system, solving the cyclic dependency issue.

    GNU HURD J1 CDs released
    Submitted by robot101 on Monday, August 12, 2002 – 12:47
    HurdOn the Sunday 4th August, Philip Charles from the GNU HURD project announced an updated set of Debian GNU HURD CDs, revision J1. Available here or here, the CDs are generated using a heavily modified debian-cd and boot-floppies system, and use the Linux 2.4 kernel to boot the initial install system, prepare the partition, copy the files, and install the bootloader. If you havn’t already, give HURD a try if you have a bit of spare disk space, it’s a good fresh approach to the whole UNIX idea. Nice introductions to the concepts here and here.

    Hurd: Status of Port to the L4 Microkernel
    Submitted by fork on Saturday, August 03, 2002 – 17:55
    HurdThe Hurd currently runs only on the Mach microkernel, but there is work to port it to the newer L4 microkernel. This article has the details about the current status of the Hurd/L4 port. It is primarily written for people familiar with Hurd/Mach, but who do not know L4.Because of design differences between L4 and Mach (as is to be expected from 2 different kernels), a lot of infrastructural work still needs to be done; including a Virtual Memory Manager (VMM), getting glibc ported, and writing device drivers.
