Sorry, I'm not an authority on "forks" of Plan 9 - I have been using the standard Bell Labs distribution since 1995, and I'm happy to stay with that. Although it is regularly updated, I would not refer to it as "unstable" - new features continue to be based on the same simple set of design principles and compatible with existing interfaces, and the system remains reliable and predictable.Rox64 wrote:...can you please explain to me the differences between the current versions and forks of Plan 9? ...And btw, since stock Plan 9 isn't dead and is still updated and rebuilded every day, what version did you use to build your Rpi port? 4th Edition as released in 2002? Current (and unstable) development version?
The 9pi file system image was created by installing a daily install/live CD image from the Bell Labs download page and then compiling all the libraries and commands with objtype=arm (the CD contains binaries for x86 only). You could build one yourself the same way.
