DISCLAIMER: These notes are from the defunct k8 project which precedes SquirrelJME. The notes for SquirrelJME start on 2016/02/26! The k8 project was effectively a Java SE 8 operating system and as such all of the notes are in the context of that scope. That project is no longer my goal as SquirrelJME is the spiritual successor to it.


I am going to go for a configuration system similar to the Linux kernel because it is the most modifiable way to specify how a system is to be built rather than forced assumed settings. There will of course be templates though however.


Something that would be handy would be that when a storage medium such as a disc has failed, make it possible so that there is a way to make it either keep trying, fail, give all zeros, give random data, or load a piece of a file to replace it with.


Ok my new package manager code is looking really nice so far. Currently my problem seems that binary packages are not listed as being available.


Was a bad glob, needed "**/".
