• LUnix on the Commodore 64

    I don't own a Commodore 64 anymore. Recently I looked up if it's possible
    to run Linux on a C64. Amazingly there is a UNIX-like OS called
    LUnix. Since I don't own hardware I used the VICE emulator. But it fails,
    see settings for IDE64 and kernel panic at

    A Youtuber had it running on VICE but he's not responding to my comments
    there. Anyone got LUnix running in VICE?

    X'post comp.sys.cbm and comp.emulators.cbm and f'up2 comp.emulators.cbm.

    I built my own copy of 2.1 from source and it works fine. IDE64 is commented
    out by default in the config.h file.

    Would you email me that please?

    I'm kinda confussed. Are you trying to run a C64 emulator under Linux? or run
    a
    C64 emulator under windows, and the emulator runs linux?

    To confuse you and others even more: none of this. I try to run LUnix,
    which is a UNIX-like operating system naively on a Commodore64. But
    since I don't own a real C64, I emulate it with VICE. So I want to run a Commodore 64 emulator (VICE, that already works) and in that emulated
    Commodore 64 emulator LUnix.

    There's Amiga Forever, it has emulation for the C's and Amigas. I've been playing with it. It's pretty simple

    I use UAE when it comes to the Amiga. But my question has nothing to do
    with the Amiga. But am now interested to emulate a C64 inside an Amiga,
    which is also an emulation. I might even find something to emulate in the emulated C64. ;-)

    I've been sort of following along with this (leaping from lurker mode)
    and it begins to look ...

    "Like a circle in a spiral
    Like a wheel within a wheel,
    Never ending or beginning,
    On an ever-spinning reel

    8<----- CUT ----->B

    Whirling silently in space
    Like the circles that you find
    In the windmills of your mind!"

    But hang in there it's wild goose chases like this that sometimes yield
    amazing discoveries.
