[[!template id=note text="""**GNU Free System Distribution Guidelines (GNU
The [Free Software Foundation](http://www.fsf.org/) can't recommend Debian
GNU/Hurd or the Arch distribution; we must suppose that they don't meet our
freedom standards any more than Debian GNU/Linux and the Arch distribution
based on the Linux kernel do. Likewise we have not evaluated other GNU/Hurd
distributions in regard to ethical criteria. Please visit
<http://www.gnu.org/distros/free-system-distribution-guidelines.html> to learn
what those standards are."""]]
There are several GNU distributions that are built on the Hurd. If you develop a Hurd-based distro or know of one that isn't on this list yet, feel free to add it!
###Working distributions of GNU/Hurd:
###GNU/Hurd distributions in early stages of development:
* [[Arch|arch_hurd]] (features a LiveCD)
###Defunct GNU/Hurd distributions:
* Bee GNU/Hurd. Castellano distribution, pkgsrc package based.
* Unofficial port to Gentoo and the portage system. It was
March 17, 2003 in the Gentoo forums, but development stopped at some point.

<WhiteKIBA> we are trying to revive Gentoo/hurd
<WhiteKIBA> we are using debian as a start
<WhiteKIBA> we installed portage on debian and are now bootstrapping the system into a folder
<WhiteKIBA> except glibc everything seems fine

<WhiteKIBA> natsukao: http://wiki.rout0r.org/index.php/Gentoo/Hurd/en I am working on it
<WhiteKIBA> if i can get glibc to compile correctly i can create a stage3 but at the moment it fails

<alexxy> WhiteKIBA: you may be interested in my try to run gentoo/hurd

Debian [[debian/after_install]] instructions are a must-read to prepare an

about getting applications to work (if possible).
# For Developers
<dd> Savannah is a CVS & Bug system evolved from a free version of the code that powers <a href="http://sf.net" target="_top">sourceforge.net</a>. It has forked and been slightly modified for use by FSF, GNU and non-GNU projects. Actual Development takes place here. There is also a <a href="http://savannah.gnu.org/people/?group=hurd" target="_top">help wanted</a> list. </dd>
<dd> What does it take to move a piece of Debian packaged software to the GNU/Hurd port? </dd>
