GRU Devlog 16 - ormp and EGG

November 14, 2021 — G1n

This week i was working on one more new project - ormp. It will be terminal multiplexor. Currently i am doing it in ncurses. For current time it is not working - can just handle input but not display it.

Also i have an idea for new projects - EGG (Extended/Exciting GRU GUI). I am planning some proj in this category - eggwm, eggterm, eggmenu and E. E would be a new display server. We will need to have it for Orion in future. Currently i am planning to do it or on fbdev or on DRM/KMS.

Also now yemu can be compiled with different compilers, -pedantic flag was added to makefile and all errors fixed.

And now our channels are bridged via matterbridge: irc on ~chat, irc on libera and xmpp muc.

Hope you liked this post! If you would like to help us, contact me via email, xmpp or irc :)

GRU Devlog 9 - orsh, orion, bootloader, GRU xmpp room and logo

September 26, 2021 — G1n

This week I didn’t commited a lot, but started some new projects. I made orsh signal handling working (so it won’t exit on ^C) and homedir “handling” (can replace homedir in prompt with ~, and you can use ‘cd ~’ or just ‘cd’ to change dir to homedir)

Also I started making bootloader, but for now it can only detect what CPU is (intel if x86 and amd if x86_64), some additional instructions (msr) and if apic is avalible.

I was trying to make something with orion fs, maybe it will use pak files for initrd. Currently i am making archiver for it, but after that i will need to understand more how vfs working and rewrite initrd to use pak files.

We now have xmpp room ( and logo! Thanks to chunk for it!

I was thinking about making weekly or monthly “conferences”. We could do it via jitsi tildeverse instance or ( conference. I think jitsi is better, but we should try confernce at least once, why not? :)
