Has anyone played with Hurd lately?


I recently installed Hurd on a spare partition on one of my systems and it seemed to go reasonably smoothly. I was just curious if anyone had played around with it recently or was actually using it to do anything useful. I read quite a lot about Mach's design in Uresh Vahalia's book Unix Internals and it seems like an interesting system to play around with.

One thing I have noticed is that the network seems quite slow (perhaps as a result of the m,icrokernel in general being slow) and I was wondering if anyone else noticed the same.

Yep, I was using Debian Hurd. From the Debian site, they have many of their packages ported over to Hurd. It wadn't terribly stable, though, I managed to freeze it up a couple times. But it seemed to by in large woek.

Haha. So I found some HURD users. Yes, the network can be slow at times, but what's worse, there is still no DHCP.
