It will do the following:

  • Pull the required git submodules
  • Create a 2 MB FAT16 disk called memdisk.fat - which will be included into service

Take it for a spin

To build and run the service:

$ ./run.sh

It will do the following:

  • Mount and update memdisk.fat with the latest content from disk1/
  • make the service
  • Run the service with qemu
