This repository contains the source code for the Writing an OS in Rust series at os.phil-opp.com.


You need a nightly Rust compiler and the cargo-xbuild and bootimage tools. You can install the tools by executing the following command:

cargo install cargo-xbuild bootimage

Afterwards you can invoke bootimage build to produce a bootable disk image. Please file an issue if you run into any problems.

To run the image in QEMU, you can execute bootimage run. Note that you need to have QEMU installed.
