Running ARM Grub on U-boot on Qemu

At the Mini-debconf in Cambridge back in November there was an ARM Sprint (which Hector wrote up as a Bits from ARM porters mail). During this there a brief discussion about using GRUB as a standard bootloader, particularly for ARM server devices. This has the advantage of providing a more "normal" (which in practice means "x86 server-like") as well as flexible solution compared with the existing flash-kernel tool which is often used on ARM. On ARMv7 devices this will more than likely involve chain loading from the U-Boot supplied by the manufacturer. For test and development it would be useful to be able to set up a similar configuration using Qemu. Cross-compilers Although this can...

Mirage 1.0.3 released; tutorial on building this website available

We've had a lot of people trying out Mirage since the 1.0 release last week, and so we've been steadily cutting point releases and new libraries to OPAM as they're done. The most common build error by far has been people using outdated OPAM packages. Do make sure that you have at least OPAM 1.1 installed, and that you've run opam update -u to get the latest package lists from the package repository. Mirage 1.0.3 improves Xen configuration generation, cleans up HTTP support, and adds support for FAT filesystems. Here are some of the libraries we've...

Qubes R2 Beta 3 has been released!

P { margin-bottom: 0.08in; }A:link { } Today we're releasing Qubes R2 Beta 3, one of the latest milestones on our roadmap for Qubes R2. Even though it is still called a “beta”, most users should install it, because, we believe, it is the most polished and stable Qubes edition. Looking back, I think it was a mistake to use this alpha/beta/rc nomenclature to mark Qubes releases, and so, starting with Qubes R3 we will be just using version numbers: 3.0, 3.1, etc.Anyway, back to the R2 Beta 3 – below I discuss some of the highlights of...
