Logging into a 3 BSD/VM system
|Architecture:||VAX, theoretically portable|
|Current Version:||3.0 (1979)|
3.0 BSD was 32v with a better virtual memory system, that went from 32'v swapping , to a paged system. Additionally all of the BSD tools from 1 BSD & 2 BSD on the PDP-11 were ported over, including vi. I've poorly transcribed the setup documentation here Setting up the Third Berkeley Software Tape. This was the first full fledged OS from Berkley, as the 1&2 releases were just patches to v7.
How do I get this to run?!
Right now, make sure you have the VAX-11/780 emulator from SIMH 3.8-0 or higher, then you can follow Installing 3 BSD on SIMH. Alternativly you can go to http://zazie.tom-yam.or.jp/starunix/ for more information.
Not very much.... 3 BSD does not provide any modern networking, and the C compiler is far from ANSI. The DZ11 emulation in SIMH is not working.
The following games are in 3 BSD:
