If you're listed here and you would prefer a real link on your name,

If you're not listed here and you think maybe you should be, please let
me know that as well. I try to get everyone, but sometimes my bookkeeping
lapses and I forget about contributions.
Rusty Russell -
- wrote the HOWTO
- prodded me into making this project official and putting it on
- came up with the way cool
- redid the config process
Peter Moulder -
Fixed my config and build processes, and added some useful code to the
Bill Stearns -
lots of bug reports
lots of testing
dedicated a box (uml.ists.dartmouth.edu) to support UML development
wrote the mkrootfs script, which allows bootable filesystems of RPM-based
distributions to be cranked out
cranked out a large number of filesystems with said script
Jim Leu - Wrote the virtual
ethernet driver and associated usermode tools
Lars Brinkhoff - Contributed
the ptrace proxy from his own project
to allow easier kernel debugging
Andrea Arcangeli - Redid
some of the early boot code so that it would work on machines with
Large File Support
Chris Emerson - Did the first UML port to Linux/ppc
Harald Welte -
Wrote the multicast transport for the network driver
Jorgen Cederlof - Added special file support to hostfs
- Changed the ubd driver to allow it to layer a COW file on a
shared read-only filesystem and wrote the iomem emulation support
Henrik Nordstrom - Provided a variety of patches, fixes, and
Lennert Buytenhek - Contributed various patches, a rewrite of the
network driver, the first implementation of the mconsole driver, and
did the bulk of the work needed to get SMP working again.
Yon Uriarte - Fixed the TUN/TAP network backend while I slept.
Adam Heath - Made a bunch of nice cleanups to the initialization code,
plus various other small patches.
Matt Zimmerman - Matt volunteered to be the UML Debian maintainer
and is doing a real nice job of it. He also noticed and fixed a
number of actually and potentially exploitable security holes in
uml_net. Plus the occasional patch. I like patches.
James McMechan - James seems to have taken over maintenance of the ubd
driver and is doing a nice job of it.
Chandan Kudige - wrote the umlgdb script which automates the reloading
of module symbols.
Steve Schmidtke - wrote the UML slirp transport and hostaudio drivers,
enabling UML processes to access audio devices on the host. He also
submitted patches for the slip transport and lots of other things.
Set up the
which is a great way of keeping the UML user community on top of UML
Site documentation and updates
Nifty little UML management daemon UMLd
Lots of testing and bug reports
Bill Carr made the Red Hat
mkrootfs script work with RH 6.2.
Michael Jennings sent in
some material which is now gracing the top of the index
page of this site.
SGI (and more specifically
Ralf Baechle) gave me an account on
oss.sgi.com. The bandwidth
there made it possible to produce most of the filesystems available on
download page .
Laurent Bonnaud took the old grotty
Debian filesystem that I've been distributing and updated it to 2.2.
It is now available by itself here .
Rik van Riel gave me some ftp space on ftp.nl.linux.org so I can
make releases even when Sourceforge is broken.
Rodrigo de Castro looked at my broken pte code and told me what
was wrong with it, letting me fix a long-standing (several weeks) and
serious set of bugs.
Chris Reahard built a specialized root filesystem for running a
DNS server jailed inside UML. It's available from the
download page in the
Jail Filesysems section.
