Installation

A disk set is available from http://www.retro11.de/data/oc_w11/oskits/rsx11mp-30_rpset.tgz

Download, unpack and copy the disk images (*.dsk), e.g.

       cd $RETROBASE/tools/oskit/rsx11mp-30_rp
       wget http://www.retro11.de/data/oc_w11/oskits/rsx11mp-30_rpset.tgz
       tar -xzf rsx11mp-30_rpset.tgz

Usage

  • Start disk image in simulator

         pdp11 rsx11mp-30_rp_boot.scmd
    

    or ONLY IF YOU HAVE A VALID LICENSE on w11a

         ti_w11 <opt> @rsx11mp-30_rp_boot.tcl
    

    where <opt> is the proper option set for the board.

  • Hit <ENTER> in the xterm window to connect to simh or backend server. The boot dialog in the console xterm window will look like (required input is in {..}, with {<CR>} denoting a carriage return:

    This os version was released in July 1985, so it's no suprise that it is not y2k ready. So enter a date before prior to 2000.

    Now you are at the MCR prompt and can exercise the system.

    At the end it is important to shutdown properly with a run $shutup. The simululaor (or the rlink backend) can be stopped when the CPU has halted.
