Following up on my v6 udpate a couple of weeks ago, I've updated my v7
note to use OpenSIMH and bring it up to date. In addition, I've switched
the multi-session notes over to DZ-11 from DC-11 cuz it supports 9600
Here's the link:
Changes since revision 2.1 (2/3/2022)
Revision 3.1 (10/29/2022) - minor revision:
Changed over to DZ-11 vs DC-11 for serial connections which allows
for 9600 baud connections.
Revision 3.0 (10/28/2022) - major revision:
Started using OpenSIMH
Restored the learn notes which went missing between 2.0 and 2.1
Updated host notes for Macos Monterey
Cleaned up a number of lingering issues
This note covers building a working v7 instance from tape files that
will run in the OpenSImH emulator. First, the reader is led through the
restoration of a pristine v7 instance from tape to disk. Next, the
reader is led through adding a regular user and making the system
multi-user capable. Then, the reader is shown how to make the system
multi-session cable to allow multiple simultaneous sessions. Finally,
the system is put to use with hello world, DMR style, and the learn
system is enabled.
The note explains each step of the process in detail.
