Metta OS

Metta is a multimedia, mobile, social OS

My goal is to make Metta the platform for social, efficient and fun life on the internet. I call such internet egocentric, because it revolves around your needs and desires. See a more detailed description at

Be free!

To build Metta

  1. Check out the sources:
 $ mkdir Metta; cd Metta
 $ git clone master

Sources will be checked out into branch "master" under "Metta". This extra umbrella directory is needed because toolchain builder will create Metta/toolchain for the local toolchain it builds.

  1. Install dependencies
  • yasm assembler, brew install yasm for example.
  • boost, brew install boost
  • OSSP uuid implementation, brew install ossp-uuid
  • cdrtools (for mkisofs), brew install cdrtools
  • bochs emulator
  1. Generate a toolchain.
 $ cd Metta
 $ sh master/

This is going to take a while.

If you're unable to build toolchain locally and are on a (post-) Lion Mac, download prebuilt one and unpack it.

 $ cd Metta
 $ wget
 $ tar xf toolchain-x86_64-darwin.tar.bz2
  1. Build Metta
 $ cd Metta/master/src
 $ ./waf
  1. After successful build run emulator software to try out Metta.

src directory is preconfigured for using Bochs, so you can simply type:

 $ bochs -q

You are free to contribute and remember: if you don't, somebody else will! Just send a pull request on github.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
