So I asked around for some old Darwin CD’s and I got lucky!
Volume 1, Summer of 1999! Although the back doesn’t really give it justice:
As you can guess, when they talk about binary and installers, it’s for the PowerMa computers of the era, and not x86.
So once more again, I was able to rebuild a kernel, and build some of the OS. There isn’t really anything to see, it’s not even slightly usable. However at the boot loader type in
hit enter, and it’ll boot up in single user mode.
There is no games, nothing fun to do, I didn’t even build a compiler. It’s just enough to show that it’ll boot up. If you manually conifgure the loop back you can ping yourself, launch inetd you can even try to telnet in, but control break is .. broken, and there is no NetInfo running so no passwords.
Of course for anyone finding this site today there are more newer, and capable images on my sourceforge page:
