Project Restart

After almost 6 years, we are back to develop a system to research asynchronous communications, assembly development for x86-64 and generally new or non-mainstream operating system concepts.

Stay tuned for more development!

JIT (Just-In-Time)

Yes, the new model we have designed use a little bit more advanced and simpler to code for techniques. We have now introduced a JIT-assembler inside the system core and we will soon write our own assembler (nasm syntax) that will support JIT-ready assembling.

Stay tuned for more details! (or visit our developer's webiste at http://axis4.dhs.org/\)

Let's show them we are right!

Guys on the V2_OS project are slowing down their project. They believe they have better ideas. They claim that VOiD is not that good. Let's proove them we have THE system!

RM Portal, strike II

eheh, yeah.. strike II.

Tip: don't use only a cpu emulator to test your code, and don't rely only on Intel's books.

Alright, finally made the rm portal working on a real pc. Seems bochs liked it too much at some point :P

Have fun, try it and tell me if you have any other problem :)

Task manager

we have (daboy in particular) reorganized the whole task manager. Instead of creating large section with too many task, we have now a clear system with definite sub-projects, one for each module.

Please make sure to check the various task that are open and join the ones you can help on.

Posted by Anonymous 2000-12-10

stay tuned!

We have modified the internal behavior of the system. The module manager is now a module/ICS/PID server. It is a more complete module with which you may now create communication channels as proposed by daboy.

The sources are still under edition, but if everything goes fine, we should have a basic system working by tomorrow night!

Coding, well under Way!

I've been coding a "bit" this saturday and things turned out pretty well. discussions were at a max level on both the forum and the developper's mailing list. It was awesome (and still is!)

The CVS sources have been updated. They now contain the temporary startup memory module. Both the allocate/deallocate function work (still need a bit of work but they are serviceable).

The get_lock and free_lock also work and the unload function have been coded but not yet tested.... read more

Yes, we have passed the 85% barrier ;) Thanks to all of you guys who work hard in there. I'm really busy, but I really look close to what is done. Don't worry, I'll try to find some time to code :)

Posted by Jacques Mony 2000-12-02


alright, undernet.org, like efnet is too busy, too many people, too many netsplits.

Been having 4 or 5 minutes ping reply with the other continents, that can't work like that in real-time chats.


That's the new server we are using. It's also the only server you can connect to from your SourceForge ssh shell account. Pings seems to be good and we haven't yet been netsplitted.

While it's true that less asm programmers are there, I'm using irc not to recruit (even if it's a side-effect), but to heavily discuss certain subject.... read more

Forum, ML, IRC


since many people seems to prefer various communication medium, starting today all post done on the ML will be also posted (by me) on the Forum and all post in the forum will be fowared to the mailing lists.

As for IRC, it should be used as a idea generator where discussion may take place in real-time etc. But a summary of the discussion should be sent to either/both the mailing list and/or the forum.... read more

CVS ready!

Yes! The CVS repository is ready and containing the right files!

I will work on a little doc on how to use it later... no you can at least go there and download the sources...

We have the following translation under progress:

Isn't that great? I find it awesome. :)

1619 and still going up!

yes, we are going up in activity rating!

We have a few active forums, a couple active mailing list, and docs rocking, so let's continue climbing up and bring that project to the top 500 by the end of december!

coding is soon to start heavily...

yes, only a few more specs are needed. The thread engine, and a few other modules, please consult the post in the axis4-dev mailing list.

I'm writing up the code for 4th Axis memory manager this weekend and probably working around a temporary module manager so that we can start coding up. More to follow.

btw, check out that little image, it's funny how non-related things can sometime be "related" somehow :P... read more
