Full Name:

System Group Name:

  non-GNU software &amp; documentation

  GNU General Public License V2 or later

  This project is a reincarnation of dead project Tyros,
which is not maintained since 2003.
Tyros is an operating system, based on Neutronix kernel. Now, in fact, only
kernel is present, shell ant etc are almost not developed now.
Neutronix is working on an ia32 PC, in protected mode. There are now realized
all of base features: UNIX-like filesystem(will be described then), forced out
multitasking, interprocess calls, internal filesystems & fat12+fat32, etc.
Also it has an embeeded window-based GUI and console, that use VESA bios
It also has an ATA device support, HDD&FDD drivers.
Now, it starts up from floppy, reads ramdisk to memory, initializing
devices(on HDD it resolves partitions and its types, and gives access to raw
data; we can then mount that raw device to filesystem - fat12 or fat32), and
loads shell. Shell has only basic function, but i want to port Linux sh/bash
This system also has a KEX(Kernel EXtension) support(hm, it is realized not
very good - kex initializes but do not deinitializes - but i will fix it) and
works with ELF executables.
There are also a virtual memory manager, process and thread support.
System is now only able to start from floppy.

Other Software Required:
  There are only GCC and NASM needed.

Other Comments:
  I will post sources today, some hours later. You can launch it by
downloading Bochs( and setting image.bin, that i also will
attach, as an 1.44 floppy. Also, activate ATA0 bus there.
