Strange Requirement:: old timers get here:: linux with kernel 1.0


Hi Old-timers,


I need to know any linux distribution which uses kernal 1.XX, or something close to that.

If it could run on not-so-old-pc in non-X mode, I will be more then happy.

If you want to know why, I need look at very basic funcions like ioctl.h io.h and stuff like that. Newer kernel are much more complex to look at.

Talking about which reminds me, if that distribution can compile modules that would be awesome.

Thanks so much for your time.

No distribution today is running a 1.x kernel. I don't even think anything still runs 2.4.

You would have to go into the archives of a very old distribution like Slackware, and get an early release. Slackware 3.0 used kernel 1.2.13.

If you want a really old distribution, you still can get Slackware-1.1.2 on this mirror. It includes kernel 0.99.15.

For the records, they have Slackware 2.01, 2.1, 2.2.0, 3.0 and 3.1 as well.

More recent versions are available on many servers.

But will these run on recent hardware

EDIT. I just mirrored Slackware-1.1.2 tree. It weighs 79 862 541 bytes. Slackware-12.2 tree is slightly heavier: 4 315 166 580 bytes, that is to say roughly 54 times more

I think you would have better luck running it in a VM than on real modern hardware. Or if you happen to have an older machine laying around, put it onto that.
