New Package: elks 0.0.8-1
Maintainer: Christoph Lameter <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Description: Development environment for 8086 Software development
ELKS-86 = Embedded Linux Kernel Enviroment for 8086. The project
attempts to provide a running Linux system for 8086 CPUs.
It contains a working assember, linker and C-compiler for 8086 cpus
which is important for the development of boot loaders or BIOS related
8086 code. C-Library and example code (tiny-utils) are also provided.
ELKS-86 can run 8086 code under i386 Linux by implementing a new executable
binary format. The execution of 8086 code can be used for testing
or to use the advantage of the compactness/speed of 8086 binaries.
ELKS-86 contains an upgraded version of as86 which is also a part of the
binutils86 package (essential for compilation of the integrated kernel loader)
