OT: Nachos - simulated OS

2004-08-31 Thread parv
Has anybody successfully compiled  used Nachos on FreeBSD 4.x, a
simulated OS?  If so, could you please share the script?

Some information is here...
  http://www.cs.washington.edu/homes/tom/nachos/
  http://kakugawa.aial.hiroshima-u.ac.jp/lecture/2000/ASE1/Handouts/overview.html


I suppose i am feeling lazy to compile gas, binutils,  gcc (which
would make the 3d instance) from source to be cross-compile-able due
to lack of a port. Speaking of which ... Nachos has been reported to
be ported to FreeBSD, btw.  (Hint, Hint.)

Hello,

Did you read the entire page that said a FBSD port existed? Look more
closely:


Existing ports: MIPS, Sparc (sunos and solaris), Alpha, linux,
netbsd and freebsd, RS/6000, 68000 Mac (unsupported), and HP.

Can NACHOS run on VAX6420/Ultrix?
-
Haven't tried it.  It should run over any version of Ultrix, but not 
definitely sure yet.

Can NACHOS run on NexT?
---
Haven't tried it.  Haven't heard of any report of it.


Run on NexT? What?

Can NACHOS run on Windows?
--
No.  Not at this time.  We're planning to port but it turned out
harder than it appeared; now that Win95 (finally, a real OS from
Microsoft!) is out, maybe we'll try it again.

[N]ow that Win95...is out? How old is this information? 


From the bug list: Thu, 12 Oct 95
From the introduction: March 1, 1994 
From the roadmap: February 3, 1997 

The roadmap date is the latest one I could find, and that is on a
linked site. The latest on the site itself is Spring 1996.


Hint, hint,

Stheg
