I just built the SIMH 3.6-1 emulators on Fedora Core 6 linux. Zod meets
Here's what I had to do to "gmake" the emulators:
1. get "bison" and "flex" for the libpcap build (i.e. yum install
flex, yum install bison). for some reason, "yum install libpcap"
and "yum libpcap-devel", although installing without errors, did
not get me a libpcap.a file anywhere. The "gmake USE_NETWORK=1
all" for SIMH choked on this. I got the libpcap 0.9.5 source
tarball from www.tcpdump.org and followed directions from there.
2. the libpcap build leaves libpcap.a in /usr/lib, whereas the SIMH
build expects it in /usr/local/lib. A simple copy corrected this,
but since I'm new to linux and *nix in general, this may be a
result of a system setup error on my part.
Now I copied some disks from my Windows system, and booted RSTS/E on a
PDP11. Running fine, using telnet from an xterm window as console.
Next step was booting one of my VAX disks, this is what happened:
* the final "boot cpu" started the VAX, selftests counting down and
>>>show dev showing the expected devices.
* >>>B DUA0 resulted in
?50 SCB2NDINT, DUA0
?06 HLT INST
PC = 00000C1A
for every disk container that I tried. I'm at a loss here, since
these disks boot fine on my Windows and Alpha systems. A binary
ftp copy from Windows to linux (pulling from linux) is all change
that I can see. But I copied my RSTS disks in the same ftp stream...
