minixmissingvsbsd

Minix aims to support a modern BSD look and feel. This page documents features missing in Minix that you'd expect in a modern BSD but are missing in Minix.

  • memory-mapped files (there is a minix_mmap() but it doesn't map files)
  • job control (setpgid())
  • TCP/IP API is partly compatible but lots of missing details
  • setrlimit()
  • rusage()
  • threads
  • rc - There currently are similarities, but also incompatibilities.
  • send-pr - This might change the current feedback cycle of public message → ignore / bug ticket.
  • setregid
