After one entire night fighting to put my hurd devel machine running well, finally I started to work on the project properly said.

Using debian-installer directory patched with Colin Watson work, I started to build the d-i dir packages (udebs) with not many problems in begin. Some small fixes are made in clock-setup package but the great challenge, and I was looking for one of that, started with netcfg package. The file netcfg-common.c dont compile with curious and seemed errors in three functions (is_interface_up, interface_up and interface_down), right now I'm trying to search why the error happen, currently I have no idea what could be causing this but I'm working on it.

Currently, the two most harder points of packages to understand is kernel-wedge (should I need to build it?) and arch.

Well, now let me back to search solutions for netcfg build problem.

This blog was created by me (Matheus) with the main objective to show the progress of the debian-installer Hurd porting development proccess. I'm looking to make daily posts here but sometimes I think this couldn't be possible, I want spend more time coding than bloging.

Currently I'm finishing to set up my hurd development machines so, no one progress has been made at the momment.
I hope post good news soon.
