What I have been doing the past few days
Since there is a lot of new stuff in the latest snapshot 2 for beta10 I just had to investigate this.
About a year ago I first tried to port apache, but this was unsuccessfull due to missing shared memory support. The mono port however brought shared memory to SkyOS!
So I tried again, and with success. With only a few minor modifications, I was able to port the following applications or libraries to SkyOS:
- apr 1.2.2
- apr-util 1.2.2 (with expat)
- apache 2.2.0
- berkeley db 4.4.20
- subversion 1.3.0
I was not able to run apache on snapshot 2 due to some missing functions, but Robert has already implemented these and are due for the next snapshot.
I also still have to fix a minor issue with svnserve to run a svn server without apache. Edit: This appeared to be very easy to fix, new screenshot added.
Also todo is compile a lot of modules!
Next on the list to port is PHP :)
I will soon post another story with how I managed to port these applications.
