Renaming FreeBSD to BSD UNIX in the kernel and renaming the kernel files
Booting this up on FreeBSD qemu
This process took over 1 hour with interruptions of the database which resulted in a failure but once rebooted it was good.
This took 4 hours to install so this is 4 hours worth of recording.
To get this to work it was wise to use the version that the documentation spoke about and compile it.
On freebsd you need to tell configure where python is and also use gmake instead of make to compile.
./configure --target-softmmu-hppa I think
inside this directory somwhere is a firmware file that permits seeing the firmware.
Messing around with an older version of this OS that is available on WinworldPC.com
Whole process takes a while to install
This is related to an old college project.
This relates to the college times as well as Ultrix did.
DECStation 5000 is a MIPS computer. At the time I had it there was a Mipsel Linux which was in development. That can only be net booted and accessed via NFS. I think this Linux was based on RedHat.
DECstation interests started as an old College Project in 1997 - 1999 times. Another class failed the Ultrix Project due to no installation CDs, this class installed Linux to PCs and left the Decstation in the large Class rooms.
The tutor who taught them (Des Stephens) was another who was in to UNIX, another tutor pointed me his way when learning RedHat Linux 4.1 to 6. FreeBSD 2.2.7 was briefly messed around with on the old AMD 233 32 bit system. 32 Bit operating systems caused these computers to reboot suddenly including on Linux, FreeBSD and Windows NT.
While dealing with the DEC although I couldn't make the Network of these computers. Installed NetBSD via tftp and NFS which was a very big learning curve.
This was a thought of technical drawing which turned out to be only for Level 3 students.
This is complete as it is all made.

I am a UNIX enthusiast due to history of using Command lines since the DOS times. I tend to keep subjects on UNIX/Computing or
some engineering topics including CAD (Not FreeCAD).
