Before DEC sold Alpha machines running Tru64 aka Digital UNIX aka OSF/1, they had the DECstation line of MIPS based machines. DECstations ran an old school Unix named ULTRIX, which was at its core based on 4.2BSD. Back in the early 1990s DEC promised to port OSF/1 to the DECstation platform, a modern design with a Mach kernel. Later, after several announcements and a longer will-they-won't-they drama, DEC canceled OSF/1 on MIPS decided to focus on the Alpha platform. Even though OSF/1 never turned into a proper product and many customers were furious, DEC released developer releases for OSF/1. Distribution tapes for 1.0 and 2.0 have made their way into the internet. Back in the days, DEC never claimed that OSF/1 on MIPS was a stable product. It lacks support for a range of hardware and it never received fixes or support in the long run. Then again, ULTRIX, the main OS for the DECstation, was an insufferable mess of bugs on top of a stone age Unix. It matured over time, yet by the time it had reached a proper level of stability, it lacked a number of features. OSF/1 on MIPS isn't as bad as you might expect. It will run on contemporary R2000 and R3000 based DECstations. R4000 systems were never supported.

DEC also marketed OSF/1 for realtime applications, a feature that somehow became unimportant for later OSF/1 and DEC Unix releases.
  
 
To install OSF/1 V1.0 you will need a supported harddisk to install the system. Supported disks include the RZ23 (100MB), RZ24 (200MB), RZ25 (400MB), RZ55 (300MB), RZ56 (600MB). It will work with the common 8bit 2D graphics cards. Some people say using a serial console does not work. That may or may not be true for some systems.

OSF/1

Before DEC sold Alpha machines running Tru64 aka Digital UNIX aka OSF/1, they had the DECstation line of MIPS based machines. DECstations ran an old school Unix named ULTRIX, which was at its core based on 4.2BSD. Back in the early 1990s DEC promised to port OSF/1 to the DECstation platform, a modern design with a Mach kernel. Later, after several announcements and a longer will-they-won't-they drama, DEC canceled OSF/1 on MIPS decided to focus on the Alpha platform. Even though OSF/1 never turned into a proper product and many customers were furious, DEC released developer releases for OSF/1. Distribution tapes for 1.0 and 2.0 have made their way into the internet. Back in the days, DEC never claimed that OSF/1 on MIPS was a stable product. It lacks support for a range of hardware and it never received fixes or support in the long run. Then again, ULTRIX, the main OS for the DECstation, was an insufferable mess of bugs on top of a stone age Unix. It matured over time, yet by the time it had reached a proper level of stability, it lacked a number of features. OSF/1 on MIPS isn't as bad as you might expect. It will run on contemporary R2000 and R3000 based DECstations. R4000 systems were never supported. DEC also marketed OSF/1 for realtime applications, a feature that somehow became unimportant for later OSF/1 and DEC Unix releases.

To install OSF/1 V1.0 you will need a supported harddisk to install the system. Supported disks include the RZ23 (100MB), RZ24 (200MB), RZ25 (400MB), RZ55 (300MB), RZ56 (600MB). It will work with the common 8bit 2D graphics cards. Some people say using a serial console does not work. That may or may not be true for some systems.

DECstation 3100

OSF/1 installation on a DECstation 3100

There are installation tape images available. One TK50 tape could hold about 95MB of data. The OSF/1 distribution comes on four tapes. You need to extract the OSF/1 install tapes and create something like a fake cdrom distribution:

create a directory "disk". cd to disk and create a new dir "RISC".

copy the files from the tapes to the new distribution directories. Create new subdirs:

Tin0Install -> MPK Tin1Kits -> BASE Tin2Kits -> BASE (same dir as above) Tin3RT -> RT

create a subdir "instctrl" in all dirs. Untar the respective f03.instctrl.tar there. Rename all the files, so they can be found by the installation procedure, like: mv f30.OSFDCMT100.tar.Z OSFDCMT100

The End result should look like this:

root@audrey:/export/binaries/dec/osf1/mips/osf1_1.0.1_mips/disk# find .

This is a suitable installation directory, but you will likely have no means to boot it on a real DECstation. So, we will call "ris" to the rescue. ULTRIX provides a great way to setup a remote installation server using "ris - Remote installation service". Make the distribution directory you just created available to a machine running a reasonably recent version (I tested 4.5) of ULTRIX. ULTRIX will be able to do cross-architecture installation, so any VAX or DECstation should be fine. You might even consider an emulated VAX using simh. For the following demonstration, the server will be a DECstation 5000/200 running ULTRIX 4.5:

root@io:~# ris REMOTE INSTALLATION SERVICE (RIS) MENU a - Add Client r - Remove Client s - Show Products in Remote Installation Environments m - Modify Client i - Install Software d - Delete Software e - Exit Enter your choice: i The menu below offers you two software installation alternatives: 1) You can create a new area to serve either RISC or VAX clients by installing a software product. The ris utility automatically creates the new area. 2) You can install additional software to an existing area that serves either RISC or VAX clients. RIS Software Installation Menu: 1 Install Software to a New Area. 2 Add Software to an Existing Area. 3 Return to Previous Menu Enter your choice: 1 You have chosen to establish a new remote installation environment.

Enter the device special file name or the path of the directory where the software is located, for example, /dev/rmt0h:

now enter you path to the BASE directory of you distribution set. follow the instructions. You can later choose option "2" from above and add additional software to this installation directory. Once you have added the BASE subsets, also add the MDK, which is a mandatory upgrade. You can leave out the "RT" in my opinion. You can choose if you want to extract and copy the filesets to the server's local harddisk or if you want symlinks. I have always chosen extraction so far. Just make sure that you have enough space in /usr/var/adm/ris or create a directory on a new disks and symlink.

Then, call "ris" again to choose "a" in the menu to add a client. Give you client's ethernet address. This will set up the software distribution and also start /etc/mop_mom on the server. Old DECstations and VAXen boot via MOP, the maintenance operation protocal. Make sure your client is added to the servers /etc/hosts file.

/etc/hosts should be beautiful like this:

192.168.2.123 ds3100 ds3100.domain.tld

but NOT like this:

192.168.2.123 ds3100.domain.tld ds3100

If there are any errors during setup, you might get the following error during the installation of the client:

Cannot find rzux1 in risdb file. Check the sytem manager of your host server.

Check to make sure: the client is in the /etc/hosts of the server the r services have to be enabled in /etc/inetd.conf on the server /usr/adm/ris/.rhosts should include the client /usr/adm/ris/clients/risdb should include the client


You can now boot the client from the server. For a DECstation 3100, the proper command is:

boot -f mop()

Other DECstations will require other commands. The remote installation then start by booting an ULTRIX 4.2 kernel (yes...), so you can partition a disk and copy a miniroot filesystem. It will then reboot to disk and start the OSF/1 kernel for the first time. The installation will go on normaly from this point on.


allow root logins from terminal other than the system console:

/etc/ttys

  1. "@(#)ttys 1.0 (OSF/1) 05/11/90"
  2. NOTE: This file is largely obsolete, its function having been taken
  3. over by /etc/inittab. Its only remaining purpose is to mark which
  4. tty lines are secure (i.e., allow root logins). To disallow root
  5. logins on a given line, remove the "secure" keyword.
  6. name getty type status comments

console none none secure # console tty00 none none secure # direct tty tty01 none none secure # direct tty tty02 none none secure # direct tty tty03 none none secure # direct tty tty04 none none secure # direct tty tty05 none none secure # direct tty tty06 none none secure # direct tty tty07 none none secure # direct tty ttyd0 none none secure # modem line ttyp0 none network secure ttyp1 none network secure ttyp2 none network secure ttyp3 none network secure ttyp4 none network secure ttyp5 none network secure ttyp6 none network secure ttyp7 none network secure ttyp8 none network secure ttyp9 none network secure ttypa none network secure ttypb none network secure ttypc none network secure ttypd none network secure ttype none network secure ttypf none network secure ttyq0 none network secure ttyq1 none network secure ttyq2 none network secure ttyq3 none network secure ttyq4 none network secure ttyq5 none network secure ttyq6 none network secure ttyq7 none network secure ttyq8 none network secure ttyq9 none network secure ttyqa none network secure ttyqb none network secure ttyqc none network secure ttyqd none network secure ttyqe none network secure ttyqf none network secure



OSF/1 V1.0 will not accept any other HOME directory for root other than /.


Enable serial console:

Some people say that OSF/1 does not support serial consoles on MIPS. I have personally seen that it just won't work with a DECstation 5000 some years ago, but never found a definitive answer. However, it does work for the DECstation 3100 and OSF/1 V1.0.

Configure the hardware:

pull the framebuffer RAM module.

In the firmware: setenv console "s".

keep the mouse connected or install a mouse loopback connector.

Configure the OSF/1 software:

X11 is started by an entry in /etc/inittab:

  1. cons:1234:respawn:/usr/sbin/getty console console pmconsole

xdm:23:respawn:/sbin/sh /sbin/xdm.init respawn > /dev/console 2>&1

to disable X11 and enable serial login change to:

cons:1234:respawn:/usr/sbin/getty console console pmconsole

  1. xdm:23:respawn:/sbin/sh /sbin/xdm.init respawn > /dev/console 2>&1

This will essentially keep xdm from starting and enable a login: prompt on the console, either graphical or serial.


.cshrc:

setenv PATH /usr/local/bin:/usr/ccs/bin:/sbin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/bin/X11

if ($term == xterm-256color) then

       setenv TERM vt100

endif

if ($term == pmconsole) then

       setenv TERM vt100

endif



.bashrc:

  1. set a fancy prompt

PS1='\u@\h:\w\$ ' export PS1


.profile:

PATH=/usr/local/bin:/sbin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/ccs/bin:/usr/bin/X11 if [ $TERM = "xterm-256color" ]

  then TERM=vt100; export TERM

OSF/1 V1.0 ships with the MIPS C-Compiler 2.20. Thus, we are not completely lost.

if config.guess can't detect the OS, give "mips-dec-osf1".
