Hi Bruno,

El 14/09/15 a les 00:32, Bruno Félix Rezende Ribeiro ha escrit:
I'm interested in improving Hurd's hardware support, probably working
on the development of user-space device drivers[0], most likely the
rump kernel integration.  I see that Robert Millan has made some
remarkable progress in that area, and I'd like to help.

As I don't like to take credit for someone else's work, I'd just like to
point out the groundwork for user-space driver support was already there
and my effort has been basically to put the pieces together in a different
way. I think it's mostly Zheng Da's merit.

That said I think Rump opens up a lot of interesting possibilities. I'm
glad to see interest in that. Which particular area do you have in mind?

I was planning to ask for advice on how to make a "/dev/audio -> librump0"
translator sometime soon. I've written similar a glue layer for Linux [1],
but I'm missing a lot of knowledge when it comes to the Hurd way of doing
this (like, how to service ioctls without libtrivfs?).
