Not a stub anymore

This article's definitely not a stub anymore... any have some more ideas on what can be added to this article? I'll try taking a look in /usr/src/linux and see if I can find the C source to TUX, to discuss the actual implementation Eric M Gearhart

TUX source and readme

This is a very good article. I'll look through the source code as well and see if there's anything interesting in it. No doubt there'll be some interesting documentation :-) --Joshua David Williams 11:43, 21 April 2007 (CDT)
I can't find the source code for download anywhere. Isn't there an official project page somewhere? --Joshua David Williams 11:47, 21 April 2007 (CDT)
I finally found it here. I still haven't found a project page, though. Perhaps it's a Cathedral-style application? --Joshua David Williams 11:49, 21 April 2007 (CDT)
No it's definitely not Cathedral-style because patches to the kernel would have to be GPL'd... the patches to the kernel weren't included in 2.4. I dunno what version of 2.6 they started including the patches again. It does feel like it's a "RedHat pet project" though. And it looks like RedHat has a "high performance webserver" project along with it. Hmm. Source as an RPM is not cool. Eric M Gearhart
I uploaded the readme file here. --Joshua David Williams 11:51, 21 April 2007 (CDT)
Hmm there are a few architectural things from the readme that can be worked into the article. When I'm less tired (just got off work) I'll take a look at trying to derive some content from it. This thing should be ready to start getting looks for approval pretty soon... TUX is a reasonably simple concept, and this article explains quite a lot of it even as it is right now in my opinion Eric M Gearhart

Do you want me to send you a tarball? --Joshua David Williams 15:08, 21 April 2007 (CDT)

Josh, yeah please do. I'd love to see the comments he's got in there. I've gotta get some sleep. I'll take a look at my email when I wake up and am more in a "writing mood." Thanks man Eric M Gearhart --Joshua David Williams 08:28, 23 April 2007 (CDT)
