Unixware 7.1.3

I've removed advertising from most of this site and will eventually clean up the few pages where it remains.

While not terribly expensive to maintain, this does cost me something. If I don't get enough donations to cover that expense, I will be shutting the site down in early 2020.

If you found something useful today, please consider a small donation.

I really wanted to install Unixware 7.1.3 today. I wanted to play with the Linux and Openserver Kernel personalities: seems like a great way to have a "do it all" machine. Unfortunately, I ran into difficulties which just stopped me dead, and I do not have the time right now to screw around with it.

OSR507 had installed (though only with IBM VGA graphics) on this box; UW installed and configured the graphics correctly, but then couldn't mount any CD's so that I could install the OSKP (Open Server Kernel Personality) or anything else. I just don't have time to investigate, so that will have to wait for another day or another machine.

It's too bad: Linux (RedHat 8.0) installs easily and perfectly on this hardware; why are SCO OSes so difficult? The 5.0.7 was at least mostly functional, and I could always through in a different graphics card if I had to. But being unable to mount a CD is just impossible to ignore.

If you found something useful today, please consider a small donation.
