    Where can I download Hawaii 0.2.0? The sourceforge just downloads the older Maui 0.0.2

    • Pier Luigi Fiorini

      You can download sources or Archlinux packages (which are up to date now).
      The new Maui Tech Preview 3 (0.0.3) ISO is almost ready, I’m doing the final touches and if the build server stops dying I will land it to some people who have UEFI for testing today.
      Once the testers say it’s OK it will be uploaded to SourceForge.net.

        Although I am not new to Linux, I’ve never really understood how to build stuff (namely os’s) from source. Do you know of any good guides or could you elaborate? I understand what you’ve said, but I have no idea how to go about doing it.

          Back in the day to understand how to build a Linux system I found Linux From Scratch to be very compelling guide: http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/lfs/view/stable/
          Basically you need a working Linux distribution installed into your machine and some development tools like the gcc compiler, make, etc… (some distributions should have a way to install the development tools with a command, if I recall on Debian systems you can apt-get install build-essential and with Fedora it should be yum install -y @c-development), fetch the sources, build in the right order and install the binaries into another partition. Maui is based on OpenEmbedded which provides a good and solid Linux base system, then the stuff I do care more (systemd, Qt, Wayland, Hawaii and such) is fetched from git and built together with a Python program called mauibuild.

            is there an email address I can give you so we can continue this conversation outside this site? I’d like to learn more about this.
