Installing minix3 on ubuntu

Tue 24 October 2006

Install minux on

Ok so I struggled to get Minix3 installed on ubuntu.

This is how I did it:

$sudo modprobe tun $sudo modprobe kqemu $sudo tunctl

Create a Disk Image

$qemu-img create -f qcow minux.img 2G

Install the minix distribution

$qemu -localtime -net user -net nic -m 128 -cdrom IDE-3.1.2a.iso -hda minux.img -boot d


boot the new image

` shutdown

$qemu -localtime -net user -net nic -m 128 -cdrom IDE-3.1.2a.iso -hda minux.img -boot `

det the network card in the minix enviroment qemu_pci=1

save boot

Then install the packages by `

$qemu -localtime -net user -net nic -m 128 -cdrom /dev/cdrom -hda minux.img -boot c `

packman option 1
