Jehanne Operating System
Jehanne is a simple operating system.
Jehanne has noble ancestors:
Still the project is named after a humble peasant, the famous French heretic Joan of Arc, because it diverges deeply from the design and conventions of its predecessors.
This is the main repository, used to build the system as a whole:
The running system also includes supplemental folders like
/devthat are bound during the boot as required.
To build Jehanne and play with it, you need to have git, golang, qemu, gcc, binutils and bison installed. For example on Debian GNU/Linux 10 you should be able to get going with
sudo apt-get install git golang build-essential flex bison qemu-system autoconf autoconf-archive curl automake-1.15 libtool-bin
After the repository clone, you can give a look with
git submodule init # we have a lot of submodules git submodule update --init --recursive --remote --depth 1 ./hacking/devshell.sh # start a shell with appropriate environment ./hacking/continuous-build.sh # to build everything (will take a while) ./hacking/runOver9P.sh # to start the system in QEMU ./hacking/drawterm.sh # to connect Jehanne with drawterm
Jehanne is a work in progress. Forks and pull requests are welcome.
In doc/hacking you will find all you need to know about its principles, design and weirdness.
There's a lot of work to do, in every area of the system.
To coordinate our efforts, we use the github issues. To discuss (and even debate) about the design and development of Jehanne we use the JehanneOS mailing list: please join and present yourself and your attitudes.
