General remarks

See notes in w11a_os_guide.md on

  1. I/O emulation setup
  2. FPGA Board setup
  3. Rlink and Backend Server setup
  4. Legal terms

Installation

A disk set is available from http://www.retro11.de/data/oc_w11/oskits/u5ed_rkset.tgz

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

       cd $RETROBASE/tools/oskit/u5ed_rk
       wget http://www.retro11.de/data/oc_w11/oskits/u5ed_rkset.tgz
       tar -xzf u5ed_rkset.tgz

Usage

  • Start backend server and boot system (see section Rlink in w11a_os_guide.md)

         boot script:  uv5_rk_boot.tcl
         example:      ti_w11 <opt> @u5ed_rk_boot.tcl
                       where <opt> is the proper option set for the board.
    
  • Hit <ENTER> in the xterm window to connect to backend server. The boot dialog in the console xterm window will look like (required input is in {..}, with {<CR>} denoting a carriage return:

         @{unix}
         
         login: {root}
    

    Now you are at the shell prompt and can exercise the system, e.g.

         # {ls -al}
         total 62
         drwxr-xr-x  9 bin       160 Jan 29 16:14 .
         drwxr-xr-x  9 bin       160 Jan 29 16:14 ..
         drwxr-xr-x  2 bin       944 Nov 26 18:13 bin
         drwxr-xr-x  2 bin        80 Nov 26 18:13 dev
         drwxr-xr-x  2 bin       240 Mar 21 12:07 etc
         drwxr-xr-x  2 bin       224 Nov 26 18:13 lib
         drwxr-xr-x  2 bin        32 Nov 26 18:13 mnt
         drwxrwxrwx  2 bin        32 Nov 26 18:13 tmp
         -rwxrwxrwx  1 bin     25802 Mar 21 12:07 unix
         drwxr-xr-x 14 bin       224 Nov 26 18:13 usr
    

    There is no halt or shutdown command, just terminate the server session with a

         .qq
    

    command. The disks aren't cached, so no need to sync either.
