Hi, I'm Dale AKA Dwarf.
I'm a retired Debian developer, who found Rust when it went Beta. I became more intrigued when I saw that Rust was being used to build the Redox OS. (BTW, someone should fix the spell checker here. It thinks Redox is misspelled...)
My recent experiences have all been failures, and I'm not sure how to approach posting them here.
I used the Redox Installer ISO, and it ran with no apparent problems. The machine booted to a long string of hex, but eventually declared "Redox 32 bit" at the top of the screen. Some other messages followed with an eventual stall. I have a screen shot taken with my phone.
So, I went and found the build instructions. Had no trouble checking out code and setting multirust. The make all dies with:
rust/src/libcore/fmt/mod.rs:282:1: 282:23 note: in this expansion of #[derive_Clone] (defined in rust/src/libcore/fmt/mod.rs)
rust/src/libcore/fmt/mod.rs:282:1: 282:23 help: run
rustc --explain E0425 to see a detailed explanation
error: aborting due to 36 previous errors
Makefile:427: recipe for target 'build/i386-unknown-redox/debug/libcore.rlib' failed
make: *** [build/i386-unknown-redox/debug/libcore.rlib] Error 101
I'm running Debian Jessie on an ASUS C60M1-1 mother board with solid state drives. This is a 64 bit machine which could have something to do with this.
Let me know if I should post with more detail, and where I should do that.
