Voilà! Your repository should now be up and running.
Sometimes I need a virtual machine system that doesn't install anything. This means no installer, no kernel modules, and no virtual network adapter.
On Windows 7, Bochs 2.5.1 emulates the NE2000 network adapter. By default, its settings are incompatible with MINIX. While I didn't get it working, here's how I got it recognized by MINIX.
In Bochs, I opened “networking,” enabled the NE2000, and set it to use I/O address 0x300 and interrupt (or IRQ) 5.
In MINIX, I edited…
3) driver=dp8390; driverargs="dp8390_0_arg='DPETH0=300:5'"
(The “:5” refers to IRQ 5.)
irq 5; io 0x300:20;
(Here, the “:20” is the number of ports to use. This is probably unrelated to how DPETH0 works.)
Upon start-up I see:
dp8390#0: NE2000 at 300:5
This is great, but next I'd have to get Bochs integrated with Windows' networking. I found out that Qemu does this far better, so I'll be using that instead.
Need to paste something from MINIX to a pastebin site?
