Logging into a TROPIX system
|Current Version:||4.9.0 (Dec 2008)|
TROPIX got its start after UFRJ could not secure a source license to AT&T UNIX. So they decided to write their own. Using a Version 7 68000 machine, they were able to clone out their own system. For a while the project seemed dead with the mainstream arrival of Linux, however there has been some new activity on the TROPIX front.
Intel 486/PENTIUM or equivalent.
8MB of ram for text mode, 16MB of ram for X11.
- Adaptec 1542 (ISA)
- 2940/29160 (PCI).
- (NE1000, NE2000 ISA/PCI)
- 3Com 3c503
- Realtek RTL 8129/8139
- U.S. Robotics 56K PCI
- Sound Blaster 16
How do I get this to run?!
First you'll need some instructions. This is the google translated instructions:
Step by Step guide
TROPIX CD boot > enter boot> -f n r s s s s fdisk> w s q boot> -i login root password tropix mkfs /dev/rhda1 mount /dev/hda1 /aroot cd /usr/etc/install install s hda1 s n (it'll copy files) s reboot
I'm still working out the networking...
/dev/ed0 dhcp netmask=0.0.0.0, default
fortune seems to be the coolest program so far. coremap is pretty neat too. The C compiler seems to be based on GCC, they did write their own assembler, linker.. It's a very strange system.
