No description provided.


I added [uname](https://github.com/redox-os/kernel/pull/39) to the sys scheme, and a [uname utility](https://github.com/redox-os/coreutils/pull/172) to coreutils.

I've been using expr from uutils (a Rust implementation of coreutils), since Redox's coreutils doesn't provide that currently. Redox should use uutils utilities for that and more; I've [patched chmod](https://github.com/uutils/coreutils/pull/1054) from uutils to run on Redox, and submitted a PR upstream. I intend to look into making Redox use portions or uutils by default where suitable.

This should be portions of uutils by default

I've looked into porting Perl (which would be needed to run autotools itself). Perl is awkward to cross compile though, and there are still some issues, so that isn't available yet.

Maybe talk about how it needs to be able to SSH into the target machine?
