<DusXMT>Then there are two possibilities: The developers of d-i forgot to take SCSI drives into consideration, or: Your BIOS lacks a feature Mach uses for getting the device list (my netbook had this problem, I don't remember exactny how the feature was called though)
<jxself>GNU has two kernels nowadays, you know, so completing work on HURD doesn't seem as important as it once was though.
<jxself>Linux-libre was made a GNU package package about 2.5 years ago.
<toxemicsquire4>HURD development has skyrocketed for about the last 2 years. It has alot of development compared what it used to have had a couple years ago
<jxself>Yes, and that's great IMO. The more GNU kernels the merrier IMO. :)
<DusXMT>Note: It's important to note that the Hurd isn't exactly a kernel. It is `A replacement for the UNIX kernel', but it itself isn't a kernel, but a collection of servers that run on top of a microkernel (currently only Mach) to provide POSIXy APIs, and the translator API of course
<toxemicsquire4>I know that, but I'd rather call it just HURD/Mach kernel that HURD multi-server on top of Mach microkernel
<DusXMT>Simply saying `The Hurd' does the job, imho, no need to bring confusing terms :)
<toxemicsquire4>Yea pretty much. Do you ever think it will be "done", and by that I mean being able to be considered stable enough for end user use
