Hello there I’m Resun a teenaged programmer who knows nothing about past days.

Here Index of /Archive/Distributions/Research/Dennis_v6 (tuhs.org)<https://www.tuhs.org/Archive/Distributions/Research/Dennis_v6/> there are some compressed file of v6 Unix.

And here’s SETTING UP UNIX - Sixth Edition (tuhs.org)<https://www.tuhs.org/Archive/Distributions/Research/Documentation/v6_setup.html> a documentation about how to set it up.

But the documentation is not for me I mean I don’t understand what it’s saying. There are terms like “Mount magtape on drive 0 at load point”, “Mount formatted disk pack on drive 0.”, “Key in and execute at 100000” and lots of other stuffs that newbies like me don’t understand. Is there any easy documentation about it? Or any documentation that tells us what does those terms mean?

Please help me.
Thanks.

search is your friend:  "simh running sixth edition"
The first hit is Noel's great text:
http://gunkies.org/wiki/Running_UNIX_v6_in_SIMH
There are others in the list including folks from this list not to slight
anyone.


Note to Warren - -- since this topic comes with newbies, maybe a pointer to
gunkies and/or the like next to the distribution might cut down a few of
these questions?

The number of people who come here asking for help, who apparently don't know
how to do a Web search, is pretty astounding. Get off my lawn.

    > The first hit is Noel's great text:

Actually, I didn't write that; another CHWiki contributor imported it from
the Web. (Wouldn't touch SIMH myself... :-)

Most of the other pages at the bottom, in the 'See also' section, I did
write. Some of them might actually be useful. Also, at the bottom of the
'Installing UNIX Sixth Edition on Ersatz-11' page, there are links to a
couple of external pages that have lots of info on how to upgrade a V6
into something semi-usable.
