old unix



  • 1. Simple Question: Is there equivalent to "Run" in CDE?
    Hi, In CDE, one Solaris 9, is there a way to bring up a "Run" dialog to execute a program, similar to Start->Run in Windows? If so, how to do this? Thanks, Jim
  • 2. SPARC VIS instruction Set
    I've been looking around for information about what's referred to as the Visual Instruction Set. I can find references to a library that supposedly takes advantage of these instructions, but I can't find any references to the assembly language instructions that are part of the Visual Instructions Set. Is this in fact an assembly level instruction set or just a lbrary that implements varions algorithms? if it's really part of the SPARC instruction set, What are these instructions not published in the SPARC programmers manual? Any of them? Any info apprecieated. Thanks, Peter McCalister
  • 3. Unattented jumpstarting of X86 servers
    G'day! Jumpstarting a X86 server cannot be done completely unattented because you need a bootdisk now that you don't have a ok prompt to enter "boot net - install" from (if I understand correctly). Is that also the case with the new V20z/V40z servers? Thanks in advance! - Morten Green Hermansen, Fanitas

128KB of RAM and 1GB of disk is wayyy too much to run Old UNIX.
You need a computer with no more than 64KB of RAM and 10MB of
disk space.

You'd be better off getting a new computer and running NEW UNIX...
Old UNIX may not know about the internet

Maybe this can be interesting to OP:

It simulates for example PDP 11/45, VAX etc ... There are UNIX v7 images
on the net (UNIX heritage society ftp server IIRC). I have sucessfully
booted 4.3 BSD under VAX, and UNIX v7 under pdp11 emulator for fun and
play. :-)
