This is a version of Linux which runs as a user-level program and provides all the services of a kernel to programs invoked within it. It utilizes its own filesystem residing in ordinary files in the host's filesystems, and is capable of networking with the host OS. This is full-blooded Linux, built from the entire Linux source. Linux was created by Linus Torvalds, licensed under the GPL with the copyrights retained by Torvalds and other authors, and exceptions for user programs running under it calling it with system call linkage and for retention of copyright by the original authors. The Linux kernel source sans the user-mode port was obtained from ftp://ftp.us.kernel.org The user-mode Linux port itself was created by Jeff Dike, and obtained from http://user-mode-linux.sourceforge.net It is (necessarily) licensed under the GPL. I have a package prepared and am ready to upload. At least three people have expressed interest in a package of this directly to me. Cheers, Bill P.S.: I apologize for duplicating some of the information in the bug report, I mistakenly hit 'y' instead of 'E' when filing the bug against wnpp.
