+ - Ask Slashdot : MacOSX cross-compiler

Submitted by FithisUX
FithisUX (855293) writes "After some failed attempt I would like to ask the Slashdoter community if there are any directions (or projects) on how to create a MacOSX 10.6 cross-compiling environment from Ubuntu (e.g. 11.04) targeting x86 and/or x86-64."

+ - uKernel Device Driver Development

Submitted by
FithisUX
FithisUX writes "Hi, after watching the attempts of various OSes like Syllable and Haiku I wonder if driver driver development is easier on a uKernel Operating System. Recently I stumbled upon an article about QNX which says that they can do Device Driver Development with POSIX interfaces, signals, threads,... etc. Moreover the breadth of modern hardware makes the kernels bigger. However attaching gdb to a device driver as a user space seems attracting. I think this would give a better chance for smaller OSes."

The degree of technical confidence is inversely proportional to the level of management.
