I'm trying to construct an OS/8 environment under SIMH. I'm trying to
use an RK05 device for the SYS volume, but can't seem to get the BUILD
procedure right. The OS/8 distribution I grabbed is dectape images
of V3D from http://www.pdp8.net/images/images/misc_dectapes.shtml.
Here's what I've done so far:
sim> at dt0 Dectapes/AL-4711C-BA.tu56
DT0: 12b format, buffering file in memory
sim> at dt1 Dectapes/AL-4712C-BA.tu56
DT1: 12b format, buffering file in memory
sim> at rk0 sys.dsk
sim> at rk1 user.dsk
sim> b dt0
At this point, I can't seem to INSERT or SYS anything resembling an
RK05 system disk. If I:
then I can:
but when I try to do BOOTSTRAP I get:
I also fiddled with PIP and the /Y and /S flags, trying to just build
a copy of the tape on the disk, to no avail.
I'm sure I'm just a dunderhead. Can anyone provide some hints?
