Freshmeat page:


This project tries to create a very small libc for embedded systems (and for people who dislike all the bloat found on modern Linux distributions). The diet libc supports alpha, arm, mips, ppc, sparc and x86 based Linux, is cross- compiler friendly, has the system calls and lots of support crap needed to link today's bloat software.

In contrast to what the uClibc project page says about us, we do try to conform to standards. However, when we have the choice to import large and potentially bloated code or to write it ourselves, we do write it ourselves. We were able to link BusyBox, too (and openssl and openssh)!

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.

If you're a C programmer with some spare time, take a look at the mod_virgule project page and help us with one of the tasks on the ToDo list!
