Possible future updates for Bedrock Linux may include:
brlstatus management commands are too slow.
crossfscurrently do not utilize readdirplus because it was broken when last investigated. However, later libfuse comments reference readdirplus, and so it might have since been fixed.
Efforts should be made to improve the various compatibility items which do not just work. For example, users should not have to manually create symlinks for desktop environment detection to work across
Bedrock would benefit from a new subsystem called "Package Manager Manager", or pmm. It should:
apt -S, and
emerge-install, none of which work.
pmm-install? Bedrock's goal isn't to get strictly packages from other distros, but whatever is feasible. This would, then, include package manager UIs. Perhaps we should have the mapping between pmm and the supported package managers be two way such that pmm could be configured to mimic backing package manager UIs. Ideally, users with a background in any Linux package manager should find a comfortable experience. Or, of course, make their own.
At the time of writing, Bedrock Linux 0.7 Poki supports
armv7l. Support for additional architectures should be added, especially
Bedrock provides documentation on its website and the various commands have
--help flags, but we do not currently have man pages for our own utilities. This should be remedied.
Bedrock's build system currently hardcodes
gcc. If possible, this should be generalized to be independent of the compiler. Otherwise, explicit support for
clang should be added.
