Here is an extract from the GNUMach page I'm preparing for the new  If you have any comments please send them to
mailing list.


Getting and compiling on Linux

First you have to get gcc and mig working with target Hurd. If you have Debian
GNU/Linux 2.2 (potato) installed you can just install packages gcc-i386-gnu and

# apt-get install gcc-i386-gnu mig-i386-gnu

The next thing is to get the sources of GNUMach. The easiest way to do so is to
get them from the CVS:

$ export
$ cvs login #hit enter when you are asked for a password
$ cvs -z3 checkout gnumach

Before doing anything you have to set the environment so that the default
compiler to be i386-gnu-gcc:

$ export PATH=/usr/i386-gnu/bin:$PATH

Now you are ready to configure GNUMach. Read gnumach/i386/README-Drivers and
write down which drivers you need. Then configure and compile GNUMach
(configuration options are for example only):

$ cd gnumach
$ mkdir build
$ cd build
$ ../configure i386-pc-gnu --enable-floppy --enable-aic7xxx
$ make

Your new kernel is named kernel and it is ready to be copied to /boot and
loaded by Grub.
