I just wrote the news 2010-04 (with help of a draft by Thomas). Please tell me
if there’s something missing or something
we could improve.
A month of the Hurd: *Arch Hurd on Hardware*, *X.org out of the box*, *new
debian qemu image* and *GSoC students*.
> This month the Arch Hurd team
> reported the first instance of Arch Hurd
> [running on real hardware](http://www.archhurd.org/news/11) (and uploaded
> [a photo](http://wiki.archhurd.org/wiki/User:Giselher#ArchHurd_on_a_real_PC)
> as evidence).
> Also the fix from *Samuel Thibault* got included in libxcb1, so X.org
> [works out of the box
> again](http://lists.debian.org/debian-hurd/2010/04/msg00034.html) with
> a simple startx and *Philip Charles*
> [extended his
> with an updated *GRUB usb stick for booting Debian/Hurd*.
> And mainly thanks to *Jose Luis Alarcon Sanchez* we now have a
> [new qemu image](http://lists.debian.org/debian-hurd/2010/04/msg00098.html)
> Which runs out of the box via `qemu -hda debian-hurd-17042010-qemu.img`.
> Now to the GSoC news: we got
> working on the Hurd this year:
>> *Jeremie Koenig* mentored by *Samuel Thibault* will be working on adapting
>> the debian-installer to
>> [produce working Debian GNU/Hurd installation images]
>> so we can more easily offer up to date disc-sets
>> Also *Emilio Pozuelo Monfort* mentored by *Fredrik Hammar* will work on the
>> possibly boring yet extremely valuable task of
>> [fixing compatibility problems exposed by projects testsuites]
>> And finally *Karim Ahmed* mentored by *Sergio Lopez* will work on
>> [Tuning the VM Subsystem in GNU/Hurd]
>> to bring get the virtual memory management in Hurd/Mach up to date
> So we had quite an exiting month with many starting threads,
> which makes this the perfect time to
> subscribe to our [[mailing_lists]] (bug-hurd and debian-hurd are the main
> and see the Hurd make another leap forward :)
> We’d be happy to see you sign up and
> contribute towards making the Hurd usable for everyone
