DEPRECATED: does not work with current versions of GCC, needs gcc295 which has been failing to build for months, no user/maintainer interest This port expired on: 2009-05-25 Framework and a set of libraries for developing operating systems Was Maintained by:firstname.lastname@example.org Port Added: 28 Feb 2004 16:50:52 License: not specified in port
The OSKit is a framework and a set of component libraries oriented to operating
systems, together with extensive documentation. By providing in a modular way
not only most of the infrastructure "grunge" needed by an OS, but also many
higher-level components, the OSKit's goal is to lower the barrier to entry to
OS R&D and to lower its costs. The OSKit makes it vastly easier to create a new
OS, port an existing OS to the x86 (or in the future, to other architectures
supported by the OSkit), or enhance an OS to support a wider range of devices,
file system formats, executable formats, or network services. The OSKit also
works well for constructing OS-related programs, such as boot loaders or
OS-level servers atop a microkernel.
Mark for deprecation, since de facto unmaintained, failing to work with
current versions of GCC, mostly dead upstream, and requiring gcc295 which
fails to build itself (and does not support current version of FreeBSD
nor most primary targets).
