I left this uncategorized because it doesn’t really feel like it belong in any one of them.
I’m curious if it would be possible to bolt the Redox user space on top of Linux. The reason for this is that the biggest hurdle is driver support. By still using the Linux kernel we don’t lose out on that, but can still gain the benefits of a rust user land. If this does happen, I think it would attract more development to the user land side of things and those benefits both projects.
My biggest hurdle is relic. Obviously it would kinda of be point less to and the rust user land and still use glibc and since relibc has Linux support it should be possible.
Right now I’m going through Linux from scratch project to learn how a Linux distro is assembled and then I want to start mutilating it. How does one use relibc as a c library? I got it built on my Solus box, but don’t know how to tell gcc or clang to use it.
It turns out google is trying to get the Linux kernel to be compiled with clang/llvm, which would be nice, because it would drop the need for gcc all together, but as for now I’m still going to need it to at least be a cross compiler. Also, I would have to set up rust cross compile, which with google shouldn’t be that hard.
Anyone else interested?
