LEAF Bering-uClibc 5.0 beta1 released

After more than one year of developement the LEAF Bering-uClibc team announces the first beta version of LEAF Bering-uClibc 5.0.

Bering-uClibc 5.0 is basically Bering-uClibc 4.x brought up to date with the latest versions of the main software components. But the most important changes are:

  • The Linux kernel is upgraded from 2.6.x to a recent long-term release (3.4.34)
  • The uClibc library is upgraded from 0.9.30 to 0.9.32.
  • The toolchain (formerly known as buildenv) has been reworked to support more processors. Currently only images for X86_64 images are provided, but as a proof-of-concept an arm-versatile based version can be build as well.
  • Usage of the toolchain has been alleviated in various aspects.

We've enabled more busybox applets (applets ifenslave, vconfig, bunzip2, unlzma, lzma, modinfo,setserial, beep, chat, mpstat, pstree, watch, nohup) and enabled verbose help messages for busybox applets.

zram support has been added (See the Bering-uClibc 5.x User Guide "Configuring leaf.cfg" for more details).

Work on Bering-uClibc 5.x started in October 2011, with Andrew as the lead developer and contributions from kapeka, Erich Titl, davidMbrooke and Yves Blusseau among others.
