ChorusOS 4.0 Introduction

System Image Components

The system image contains a configured version of the ChorusOS operating system, and possibly some user-defined applications (actors).

Depending on its configuration options, the ChorusOS operating system is itself built from a kernel and a collection of actors. These actors, which contribute to the implementation of some ChorusOS operating system features, are called ChorusOS operating system actors.

Configuration options concerning the system image components deal mainly with the inclusion of system and application actors within system images.
