Misaka (ToaruOS 2.0)
Misaka is the "next-generation" (x86-64, SMP) kernel for ToaruOS.
This repository contains most of the same content as the upstream repository, including the userspace applications, libraries, and toolchain scripts. The bootloaders are not included - grub should work.
Note that Misaka is still considered a work in progress. While most of the OS is functioning, third-party ports are not ready, SMP support is still very unstable, and network support is unimplemented.
- The Toaru kernel has been ported to x86-64.
- Considerable changes have been made to make the kernel more portable to other architectures.
- Userspace fixes have been implemented to run on the new kernel.
- Some drivers have been ported (AC'97, serial, vmware mouse)
- SMP is functioning but highly unstable, the GUI can be run successfully and multiple graphical demos can run in parallel before eventual crashes.
- Kernel locking needs to be audited and SMP stability needs to be fixed. This will likely be a time-consuming process as these faults are difficult to debug.
- Some subsystems are being rewritten from scratch, such as the network stack.
- Third-party ports have not been made/tested yet; current plan is to have everything from the 1.10.x package series available again for x86-64.
- aarch64 and riscv64 ports are on the long-term roadmap.
- All of this will eventually be merged upstream.

-smp 2 if you want to test with multiple cores. Up to 32 cores are "supported" at the moment.
