A couple of small, paid userland hacker projects.

Hey there,

I'm looking for someone to implement each of the following:

(1) Make pkg_add(1) not use system(3) to execute external programs to
do things that it can implement internally (i.e. calling out to tar(1)
is fine, calling out to mkdir(1) is not.)  Alternately, rewrite
pkg_add as a sh(1) shell script, with perhaps a minimal utility
written in C (pkg_admin?) to muck with /var/db/pkg.

(2) Add an option to specify an alternate root for pkg_add(1) to
install into.  This means that if pkg_add(1) were passed an alternate
root of '/foo' instead of updating /var/db/pkg, it would update
/foo/var/db/pkg; instead of untarring to /usr/local/bin it would untar
to /foo/usr/local/bin.  This is instead of chroot(2) functionality; I
need to be able to install packages onto a filesystem which contains
binaries for another (incompatible) architecture, so the chroot(2)
approach doesn't work.

(3) Make kldload(8) warn if something that looks like a filename
without a path (i.e. there is a . in it or it ends in .ko or whatever,
but there is no slash in it — kldload(2) uses a slash to determine
whether something is a path) is specified on the command line and:
(a) that file exists in the current directory
(b) the current directory is not in the module search path *OR* is not
the first directory in the module search path in which a file with
that name exists.  Consider a module search path of
/boot/modules;/boot/kernel — if I am in /boot/kernel and I type
'kldload if_foo.ko' and there is a file named 'if_foo.ko' in
/boot/modules, the module that will be loaded is not the one that I

Re: Apple Inc. Employment Opportunity


Folks,

Please excuse the "posted on your website" boilerplate here and the  
crossposting.  One of these days I'll find the right person in HR and  
maybe we can have a little chat about mailing list etiquette.

If the idea of working at Apple is interesting, please do get in  
touch; in addition to this position, we're always looking for capable  
individuals.

  = Mike
