I've just released the first version of netkit-ng. It is an update of
netkit to include some functionalities and offer up-to-date kernel and
filesystem (as it is not possible to build recent debian version).

The new fs and kernel build system (and binaries) are available here:


The build is based on latest wheezy debian, and offer recent kernel
3.2.51. Furthermore, the build is now based on rootstrap to use generic
build system and thus avoid to rewrite build scripts. Sadly I cannot
keep MPLS patches, as it is too difficult to merge them on recent kernel.

You need updated netkit binaries, as the filesystem has a new format. It
is available here:


I'm looking for feedback. Please test your labs with it...

You can use bug reports of the github projects to report bugs.
