Xelix news: Managed to fix the PCI issues I've been having (by making PCI interrupts non-reentrant for now), wrote a driver for Ne2000 NICs and hooked that up to PicoTCP.

Suddenly: Internet! Next up, figuring out how to expose all this properly as BSD sockets in userland.

Probably related to another issue where any PCI interrupt will cause mysterious triple faults. Which is very frustrating since I recently ported the PicoTCP stack, but now have no way of getting packets into it…

Tried booting Xelix in VirtualBox for the first time in ages. Looks like it's not very happy with the new interrupt handling. I think it fires a nested interrupt right after initialization where QEMU doesn't, and that triggers one of the several reentrancy issues still scattered throughout the code.

(90% of the userland is still busybox right now. I've been meaning to port the coreutils but other stuff keeps coming up).

In related news, spent a lot of time making context switching more stable and improving the ext2 driver recently. Ported pciutils/lspci earlier today and it's starting to feel like a real UNIX™.

I guess this will now officially™ become the place I spam about my osdev hackery.

hey everyone writing code: you can't get around this. code does not exist in a noble mathematical void which absolves you of accountability. any system which people touch is tied into the fabric of society, and should be scrutinized for potential to do harm.
