It requires a crosscompiler, see link below for download. It uses my build system called Wild. It expects the wild binary to be located in the root directory of PowerNex, then you just need to run `./build` to build.
Please note that Wild is under development and the compiled result may not work! This means that it is recommended to use the prebuilt executable below
One tip is to run `source env.sh`, this adds shortcuts for building and running. `b` compiles and runs PowerNex in qemu, `v` just builds PowerNex.
- A 64bit processor
- At least 128 MiB of ram (Probably work on less)
Recommended & Supported Virtual Machines
– Recommended launch command
qemu-system-x86_64 -cdrom PowerNex.iso -m 128 -no-reboot
- Adam D. Ruppe - For his minimal.zip, which contains a bare bone minimal d runtime. Which this kernel is based on.
- Bloodmanovski - For his D Kernel Trinix, His files for booting x64 really helped me a lot.
