Anyway, try it, and let us know what happens. How much memory does the
have on it now?
64K. I'd like to get another M7891, mine is only 1/2 populated.
If it doesn't work, I can do some experiments and see what's the least
of memory one needs.
There are a whole bunch of parameters which will reduce the size of the
resident OS; if necessary, I can turn them all down to the minimum, and
what we get - although just reducing the number of disk buffer may do it.
As for the applications, it does swap, so
there's no requirement for more
one process to be resident at a time, so whatever the largest is -
the C compiler - there only needs to be enough memory left over after the
is loaded, for that one. It looks like the shell is about 10KB, for
If it won't boot, don't trash the disk: if we send you another bootable
we can make it tiny (only Unix, and enough files to get it running:
/bin/sh, etc), and if/once it books, you can mount the disk you just
move the bootable Unix system image over, and then reboot on the current
to get to the rest of the stuff.
Do you have two working RL drives on the machine?
I was going to say...yes I have two working RL drives.
The build just finished. When I boot I get the ! prompt, but when I type
rlinux the system bombs and I can go no farther
sorry I mean rlunix, but typing anything kills the CPU and I have to
restart the system..
