It is important to enable the processor features _fsgsbase_ and _rdtscp_ because it is a prerequisite to boot RustyHermit.
## Extending RustyHermit
The best way to extend the kernel is to work with the branch *devel* of the repository [rusty-hermit](
It includes this repository as submodule and link the unikernel directly to the test application.
According to the following instructions, the test application can be found under *target/x86_64-unknown-hermit/debug/rusty_demo*.
git clone
cd rusty-hermit
git submodule init
git submodule update
cargo build -Z build-std=std,core,alloc --target x86_64-unknown-hermit
## Use RustyHermit for C/C++, Go, and Fortran applications
This kernel can still be used with C/C++, Go, and Fortran applications.
