Linux 0.01 on Qemu!

Well sort of.

Linux 0.01!

Linux 0.01!

I looked at the source again, and for some reason 99% of it compiled without issue.  I recall having all kinds of issues, but clearly I was doing something wrong back then.  At any rate, all I really had to do was modify the commenting style in the 8086 boot block code, and modify the image creation tool to open files in O_BINARY mode for Windows, and I got an image that will boot, then panic because it has issues reading the hard disk.  I tried the seemingly small ‘fix’ from Linux 0.11 but it’s not working.

If anyone cares, I updated the sourceforge download, as MinGW-aout-linux–001_010_011.7z

About neozeed

What is there to tell? I've loved UNIX like things since I was first exposed to QNX in highschool (we had the Unisys ICONS!), and spent the better time of my teenage years trying to get my own UNIX... I should have bought Coherent in retrospect.. Anyways latched onto Linux in 1992, and then got some old BSD admin books and have been hooked on the VAX BSD & other big/ancient things since...!
