Linux-0.01 kernel building on ubuntu hardy

linux-0.01-rm-3.5 now builds ok on hardy but only on 32 bit version
The best way to try is to install hardy , or debian lenny in kvm-linux or virtualbox and then try the instructions bellow 

Official 0.0.1 project news and downloads are located here

You might need some packages first
$sudo apt-get install bin86 kvm qemu gcc build-essential


$wget http://ftp.be.debian.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/abdel/linux_0.01/sources/linux-0.01-rm-3.5.tar.gz

$tar -zxvf linux-0.01-rm-3.5.tar.gz
$cd linux-0.01-rm-3.5
$make

or time make

make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/mariuz/linux-0.01-rm-3.5/lib'
ld -s -x -M -Ttext 0 -e startup_32 boot/head.o init/main.o \

rm -f tmp.s

real 0m4.512s
user 0m3.696s
sys 0m0.768s

then rename Image to linux0.01-3.5.img
qemu -hdb hd_oldlinux.img -fda linux0.01-3.5.img -boot a

you must use the hd image from here if you don't have it yet
wget http://draconux.free.fr/download/os-dev/linux0.01/Image/hd_oldlinux.img.zip
unzip hd_oldlinux.img.zip

hi, thanks for the excellent blog.
I was following your steps but upon running running linux image with qemu, linux hangs after showing message "Loading System..."
I am running the same command as yours:
qemu -hdb hd_oldlinux.img -fda linux0.01-3.5.img -boot a

I am suspecting hd image problem but don't know what to do about it.

I am running updated Debian Squeeze with GCC 4.4.4

I will be thankful to you if you could help.

i think you don't have the Linux Image created

how did you managed to compile it on debian with gcc 4.4.4 because on my machine i have this error


../include/asm/segment.h: Assembler messages:
../include/asm/segment.h:27: Error: bad register name `%sil'


I will try to solve it and update the guide

you can download the image from here if you can't build it

Awesome..

I have modified a little bit and now it compiles and boots on ubuntu 64-bit machine.

Thank you Mariuz.

This link helped me to fix few errors. Including the one you mentioned.

../include/asm/segment.h: Assembler messages:
../include/asm/segment.h:27: Error: bad register name `%sil'
