To get started, install Mercurial and download a linux-22.214.171.124 tarball
Get the kernel patch:
Get the tux3 userspace tree from mercurial:
hg clone static-http://tux3.org/tux3
cd tux3 && make
Run the userspace tests under Valgrind:
Run Tux3 under FUSE:
Tux3 will now be mounted on tux3/test. You can try filesystem operations
on that directory from another terminal. Ctrl-C on the make debug
command to umount, or umount tux3/test as root.
Patch and build the kernel:
cd linux-126.96.36.199 && patch <tux3-188.8.131.52-0 -p1 && make defconfig && make
Now make xconfig or edit .config to enable Tux3 and remake. Find a
test box and boot it.
Next thing is to start reading files and get familiar with the structure.
That should keep you busy long enough for me to make a list of things to
(This post needs to go on our site as a "Getting Started" doc.)
