i need slackware 1.0
 
please help me...
i wanna study about linux kernel 1.0.0....(please dont discourage me)
so modern linux distributions usually dont allow of compiling these kinds of old linux kernels... (becoz of lack of gnu chain tools)

so one person reccommended me that to use old linux distribution in order to work with linux 1.0.0 kernel....

so here by i decided to download slackware 1.
but i dont where would it be available. please help me.!

The oldest I could find is 1.1.2 (I didn't search too hard).

http://www.ibiblio.org/pub/historic-...ackware/1.1.2/

EDIT: It appears to use kernel 0.99.15, so you might need to use a more recent Slackware. :)

If niels.horn sees this thread, he may be able to give you a copy. I think he has every version.

You might need some pretty old hardware also. Something from around the 486 to Pentium 100 era. Newer hardware may be so unsupported by software that old that you'll never get it to boot. Virtualization might be an answer, but the VM drivers may also have problems with software that old. Not trying to discourage you, and you can always read source code, but just pointing out potential obstacles.

Niels Horn has the Slackware 1.0.1 source up here.

You'll need to get your hands on Slackware 2.0 if you want the 1.0.9 kernel.

Quote:

excerpt from http://www.anonymous-insider.net/lin...1994/0706.html
Current version numbers:
> Slackware 2.0
> SLS 1.05 with kernel 1.0
> Debian 0.91 Beta
> MCC 1.0+
> TAMU 1.0-A (binary only)
> JE distribution
> kernel sources version 1.1.23
> XFree86 Version 3.0 (Beta)
> Preliminary versions of the WINE code (Micorsoft Windows Emulator)

The "Linux Developer's Resource" is updated every two months. This release
was slightly delayed while we waited for Patrick to complete Slackware 2.0 !!
If memory serves me right I believe PV released Slackware 2.1 rather quickly. You may find it hard to find a Slackware 2.0 disk set(24 floppies).

BTW, LQ has a excellent spell check to make things right. It's a lot easier to read when the words are correct with proper grammar.

Hey, what can I say... I'm a bit slow lately :)

The O.P. already found my site and my e-mail.

I have about every version of Slackware that ever came out, but not enough space / bandwidth to put them all on my site.
If anyone is interested, I can put Slackware 2.0.1 (kernel 1.0.9) on my site. It's about 270M...

I'll take you up on that. Do you want to make the link public or should I get an email to you? Thanks!

baxzius 06-24-2010 05:05 AM

so much thanks.....
 
i saw your website neils.horn . its confirm that your are a genius. any way i want to download it but the problem is that bochs or qemu is taking 100% cpu ... can it blow my cpu?

niels.horn 06-24-2010 05:15 AM

@astrogeek:
I'll put it up over the weekend. It will take a while, as my upload link at home is slow. I'll put the link here after it's finished.

@baxzius:
Don't know about bochs, but qemu should not take up 100% cpu.
OTOH, when running Slackware 1.01 your CPU will go to 100%, the same thing happens when running Windows 95 in an emulator.
I don't think it will "blow" your CPU, but you might want to monitor your temperature on the host.

I don't know if this is of any use, but somebody's built an even older kernel with GCC 4.

Hi,

brianL: I noticed the Slacker link in your sig. I thought you are from 'Oldham, Lancs, England' not 'Slack, West Yorkshire'?

Just curious. :)

brianL 06-24-2010 07:14 AM

Hi Gary
Yes, I'm from Oldham. The phrase on the Wikipedia page that best sums me up is this one:

Is it laziness, or conservation of energy? ;)

Hi,

I thought such but just wanted to pun a bit. :)

brianL 06-24-2010 08:14 AM

I suppose I could move to Slack, W.Yorks.
