This page contains my wishlist / tasks I am working on as well as some random notes.
Here is an overview of the current status of the task I am currently working on.
The following is as much a todo list as random notes.
In some embedded scenario, there is no need for all the POSIX APIs. I think that given MINIX structure, it should be possible to have a system without even filesystem support for example. In such systems all the functionnality required is simply implemented through a set of specific (and adhoc) services.
Because of interdependencies in our current services (VM, VFS, PM, RS) it is not possible at the moment to reduced the system to a bare minimum of just the microkernel, a few drivers, VM, and RS.
# Server re-organisation, if we aim one day to have a smaller subset without # posix support. # Not possible without right now, the servers have some inter-dependencies. . ├── devman # Not sure where to place this, posix or system? ├── input # ditto ├── posix │ ├── init │ ├── ipc │ ├── pm │ ├── sched │ └── vfs └── system ├── ds ├── is ├── rs └── vm
