I don’t recall their being detailed installation instructions like v8/v9.  I never noticed the vax boot stuff as it was buried in the tree.  It’s possible that it’s buildable.  Or it could be incomplete like the Mach 2.5 VAX missing system headers….


I guess it’s worth trying on whatever should be the parallel BSD system if it’s like v8/v9 which needed a BSD machine to bootstrap.

Did anyone try to get v10 running in simh yet? It's been public for a
while now and while we have two blit emulators already I haven't seen
v10 alive yet. I have to admit I haven't tried to get it running myself either.


After a brief look at the boot and config sources it appears as though there is support for the MicroVAX II which SIMH supports and I have used.  Is there an environment which is preferred for building the V10 source tree?  4.3BSD?  V8?  Something else?
