Re: compiling new linux drivers into gnumach

Double-check your grub boot parameters. There has been
some confusing stuff floating around on the net, and
incorrect boot params cause the exact symptoms you
are describing.

This is an example of how I boot my oskit-mach:

# from menu.lst

title Debian GNU/Hurd (oskit-mach)
root (hd0,0)
kernel /boot/testkernel -- root=hd0s1
module /hurd/ext2fs.static --multiboot-command-line=${kernel-command-line} --host-priv-port=${host-port} --device-master-port=${device-port} --exec-server-task=${exec-task} -T device ${root-device} $(task-create) $(task-resume)
module /lib/ld.so.1 /hurd/exec $(exec-task=task-create)

Is it at all possible to try and patch up drivers this way? Should I
just wait for OSKit Mach?

While you're welcome to hack drivers into gnumach, I suspect that you
won't see a new package for it.  Can you try the oskit-mach at
http://people.debian.org/~jbailey?  If that supports your driver, then
all you're waiting for is a usable console.  If not, please let me
know and I will add it.

I've installed the package and tried booting with it. However, OSKit Mach reboots the machine, apparently before loading the Hurd. All I have time to see is 'GNU Mach 1.90' and I cannot confirm whether it supports my driver.
