In the bootable images archive, there's the
"Unknown V6" RL02
image. I've tried that on SimH configured as an 11/23+ with 256kB of RAM
and it seems to work fine.
Sorry, where's this archive? Somewhere in:
I assume? From the description, that might be from the 'Shoppa disks';
realize that was a /23 on those.
I would assume that Ethernet boards are available, but
not supported on
V6, as distributed, had no networking at all. There are two V6 systems with
networking in TUHS:
The first is an 'NCP' Unix (unless unless you have an ARPANet); the second is
a fairly early TCP/IP from BBN (ditto, out of the box; although one could write
an Ethernet driver for it).
There's also a fairly nice Internet-capable V6 (well, PWB1, actually) from MIT
which I keep meaning to upload; it includes SMTP, FTP, etc, etc. I also have
visions of porting an ARP I wrote to it, and bringing up an Ethernet driver
for the DEQNA/DELQA, but I've yet to get to any of that.
it's hard to glean that wisdom from reading the
Yeah, DEC manuals went through a phase-change around about the time of the
/23. Old DEC manuals are wonderful; stuffed to the gills with deep technical
details. Suitable for engineers...
Later, they turned into manuals for 'ordinary people' - 'plug cable C1
plug P1'. Semi-useless; although one can often glean a few useful morsels if
you trawl through the entire thing.
That's why I've been doing PDP-11 pages on the CHWiki which attempt to cover a
lot of technical detail, in a high technical content/size way.
If you need something that's not there, let me know, and I'll get to adding it.
