Unixware 7.1.3

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.

Got something to add? Send me email.
