I accidentally shut down the PDP Unix ftp archive on
henry.cs.adfa.oz.au yesterday, as it's my desktop PC and I temporarily
forgot about its other uses. It should be back on again at 0000 GMT Monday.
I've also got a new Pentium to replace the 486 which is henry, and I will
cut over to the new machine sometime in the next two weeks, so if you are
having any troubles ftp'ing stuff from this machine, please let me know.
OK. Now I have a RL01 image, which boots at least on the emu with
the original rl1unix kernel.
# mkfs /dev/rl1 9000
# dd if=/usr/mdec/rluboot of=/dev/rl1 count=1
# mount /dev/rl1 /mnt
# rm -rf /usr/dicts /usr/src /usr/games /rkunix /usr/spool/uucppublic/ansi*
# tar cf - .profile bin boot etc lib tmp usr | (cd mnt; tar xf -)
# cp /rl1unix /mnt/unix
# mkdir /mnt/mnt
# mkdir /mnt/dev
# cp /dev/makefile /mnt/dev
# cd /mnt/dev
# make rl
# ln rl0 swap
# cd /usr/sys/conf
# cp rl1conf conf
conf: remove last line (tm)
m.h: uncomment "#define _1134"
makefile: M = smch
copied pk.p, stat.h and tty.h from other V7 source to /usr/sys/h
# make unix
# cp unix /mnt/nunix
The selfmade kernel nunix doesn't boot. Did I something wrong?
Should I adjust also other options in m.h or param.h to get better
performance with 128kByte (not kWord) RAM?
My V7 has RL drivers, and AFAIR they're on my distribution tape, which has
a 1980 date sticker on it (I think; it's not to hand).
My 11/23 only has RL02s on it, and it was running V7 fine this morning :-)

The V7 are RL02 images and include the RL drivers.

root rl 0
swap rl 0
I assume that means that the filesystem ist 9000 block long and the
swap 1240 blocks. (-> mkfs /dev/rl1 9000)
Until now I have the RL02 cleaned up, so it fits on a RL01, and
made a filesystem on the RL01. Now I'm fighting with the emu.
My name is Matthias Bruestle and I'm new on this mailing list.
I'm collecting old computers and have until now 34.
I have a 11/34A with 128kB RAM, DL11-W and 2 RL01. I want to
install UNIX on her. Because there are no RL01 disk images
which I can use directly, I want to prepare one with a
PDP-11 emulator. I got V6 to boot with the Supnik emulator,
but noticed than that V6 has no support for RL01 drives.
Does someone have RL01 drivers for V6 or must I use V7?
The last step would be to download the image over the serial
line. Is there allready a programm for RT-11SJ V4.00
which does this?
Thanks for your help
