Download the Latest Files

Most of osFree's files are currently available from our ftp://osfree.org/pub/downloads/. osFree is currently a deep alpha stage project. You can test some packages and/or you can browse the sources. You can also access the Git repository directly at our repository through your preferred Git client. GitHub has more information about accessing it through Git. However we have information about it as well.

There is our Demo CD available too.

I have found that a couple of links on the OSFree home page do not work and go to page that indicates it is not an actual page.

Yes, some files are missing. Because the server on the hosting (we were hosted at www.os2world.com) had harddisk died. Now it is mostly repaired, and on other server.

We saved the Source Code at a Github project: https://github.com/ErisBlastar/osfree

In case the hard drive hosting it gets corrupt again.

There is a Guide for making Kernels that boot in QEMU and GRUB: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=12182156 http://www.cs.vu.nl/~herbertb/misc/writingkernels.txt

I think a key for development is to make a QEMU virtual machine that boots the L4 Kernel, or a GRUB entry that boots the L4 Kernel so that there are more people who can test it out and work with it.

I also think borrowing from HaikuOS, AROS, and ReactOS or working with those projects might help giving a BeOS, AmigaOS, and Windows XP personality using Kernel code from those projects as a cache kernel to run more apps under OSFree or OS/3 or whatever.

There appears to be a couple of errors on the home page:-

Project News An error occurred while fetching this feed: http://sourceforge.net/export/rss2_projnews.php?group_id=88854 SVN News An error occurred while fetching this feed: https://sourceforge.net/p/osfree/activity/feed

Kind regards

2Carl Harding: Yes, I noticed. These were the problems with RSS feeds from SourceForge. Now they repaired.

2OrionBlastar: The old hosting has been died back in 2012. Almost everything was recovered in 2013 on a new hosting. No need to save sources, they are on Sourceforge (started to migrate to Github last year, but considering that Github was bought by m$, we had paused, because we're not sure what to expect from them. Maybe, we'll choose another repository hosting). Wiki is separate from the source code repository.

osFree boots fine in GRUB, but we use own bootloader (called FreeLDR), which is compatible with GRUB. Yes, we use QEMU for testing.

Haiku, AROS and ReactOS are good, but we're focused on OS/2 API. If you want, port Haiku to L4 kernel yourself ;) I have no time for that ;)
