UNIX First Edition
Logging into a Unix version 1 box
|Creator:||Western Electric, AT&T|
|Architecture:||PDP-7, PDP-11 theoretically portable|
|Current Version:||SYSVr4 - Solais 10 (2009)|
The earlier first version was written in assembly language for a spare PDP-7 in Bell Labs. Originally what started out as a game (spacelander) eventually UNIX started to fill a need for typesetting on 'cheap' minicomputers.
The first version was primarly written in assembler.
On December 2008, the project made its first relase using scanned printouts as source material, a team was able to re-enter the source files, and using apout they were able to construct a system using various bits from later Unix versions into a booting system for SIMH's PDP-11 emulator.
How do I get this to run?!
There is a packaged version that will easily install on Windows machines that can be downloaded here
You can find all the pieces for this below:
You need a version of SIMH 3.8-1 or higher, as they will incorporate certain changes required for v1 unix.
Not very much!
