SIMH VAX 11/780

The minor goal has been to automate the installation of 4.3BSD on an emulated VAX 11/780. A major goal would be to get 4.3BSD running on my VAX 4000/700A .

Installing 4.3BSD

This was a fun retrocomputing experience. I started with a 4.2BSD SIMH config file and followed the instructions from Installing and Operating 4.3BSD on the VAX. It all just worked. I wrote some scripts to automate the setup and installation.

download the archives required to create installation tape
wget http://www.tribug.org/pub/tuhs/4BSD/Distributions/4.3BSD/usr.tar.gz
wget http://www.tribug.org/pub/tuhs/4BSD/Distributions/4.3BSD/stand.gz
wget http://www.tribug.org/pub/tuhs/4BSD/Distributions/4.3BSD/miniroot.gz
wget http://www.tribug.org/pub/tuhs/4BSD/Distributions/4.3BSD/rootdump.gz
wget http://www.tribug.org/pub/tuhs/4BSD/Distributions/4.3BSD/srcsys.tar.gz
wget http://www.tribug.org/pub/tuhs/4BSD/Distributions/4.3BSD/src.tar.gz
wget http://www.tribug.org/pub/tuhs/4BSD/Distributions/4.3BSD/vfont.tar.gz
wget http://www.tribug.org/pub/tuhs/4BSD/Distributions/4.3BSD/new.tar.gz
wget http://www.tribug.org/pub/tuhs/4BSD/Distributions/4.3BSD/ingres.tar.gz
gzunip *.gz

format the Installing and Operating 4.3BSD on the VAX paper
pax -rv -pm -f usr.tar -sTdoc/smm/01.setup/T./T doc/smm/01.setup/?.t
groff -t -ms 0.t 1.t 2.t 3.t 4.t 5.t 6.t a.t b.t c.t | gzip -9 > setup.ps.gz

download kermit to install in /usr/new
wget ftp://kermit.columbia.edu/kermit/bin/gku100.vax-bsd-4.3
wget ftp://kermit.columbia.edu/kermit/bin/cku211.bsd43-vax
chmod a+rx,a-w gku100.vax-bsd-4.3 cku211.bsd43-vax

create an extra archive for additional software to install on target
pax -vw -f install.tar \
	-sTinstall.shT./tmp/install.shT \
	-sTcku211.bsd43-vaxT./usr/new/kermitT \
	-sTgku100.vax-bsd-4.3T./usr/new/gkermitT \
	install.sh cku211.bsd43-vax gku100.vax-bsd-4.3

create the installation tape in SIMH format
perl ./mkdisttap.pl > bsd.tap

extract the boot images from the archives
pax -rv -pm -f srcsys.tar -sT./dist/T./T ./dist/tp/copy
pax -rv -pm -f srcsys.tar -sT./dist/T./T ./dist/tp/boot
pax -rv -pm -f srcsys.tar -sT./floppy/bootTboot43T ./floppy/boot

create a blank RA81 disk image
dd if=/dev/zero of=ra81.dsk bs=1048576 count=435

run expect to automate SIMH and 4.3BSD, following the Installing and Operating 4.3BSD on the VAX instructions
env BSDDISKLABEL=BSD43 TZ=Canada/Pacific BSDVAX=simh-vax780 expect ../inc/install.exp

Installing 4.3BSD-Reno

This installation was tricky. Whenever I tried to follow the setup instructions, either the kernel and/or the emulator would get into a strange state . I decided to start with a fully installed base 4.3BSD system and use 4.3BSD to install 4.3BSD-Reno to another disk image. I wrote some scripts to automate the setup and installation.

create a base 4.3BSD system ra81 disk image
gmake DESTDIR=../dist43reno -C ../dist43 install

download the archives required to create installation tape
wget http://www.tribug.org/pub/tuhs/4BSD/Distributions/4.3BSD-Reno/src.tar.gz
wget http://www.tribug.org/pub/tuhs/4BSD/Distributions/4.3BSD-Reno/stand.gz

    install.sh cku211.bsd43-vax gku100.vax-bsd-4.3

create the installation tape in SIMH format
perl ./mkdisttap.pl > bsd.tap

extract the boot images from the archives
pax -rv -pm -f srcsys.tar -sT./vaxdistT./T ./vaxdist/tp/copy
pax -rv -pm -f srcsys.tar -sT./vaxdistT./T ./vaxdist/tp/boot

create a blank RA81 disk image
dd if=/dev/zero of=ra81.dsk bs=1048576 count=435

run expect to automate SIMH and 4.3BSD -- the install.sh script does most of the work

Installing 4.3BSD-Tahoe

The TUHS 4.3BSD-Tahoe image is incomplete. I have asked Santa for the CSRG Archive CD-ROMs to identify the missing pieces.

Installing 4.3BSD-Quasijarus

I used the same scripts as the 4.3BSD installation. The only extra steps are using disklabel and a special tool to decompresses the archives -- gzcompat .

download the archives required to create installation tape
wget ftp://ifctfvax.harhan.org/pub/UNIX/4.3BSD-Quasijarus0c/stand.Z
