WORK IN PROGRESS
This howto documents our efforts to breed as end as doable the authorized Tetris ride in a right-hardware setup.
Emulation skill on a standard PC is described in OriginalTetrisHowto.
So, here we can insist how to set up TETRIS on a right DEC PDP-11/34 working RT-11 and additionally quilt some purposeful systems.
We can utilize:
- USB – RS232 Serial converter
- A laptop with Linux Mint
- CKermit from columbia.edu
We pick that it’s likely you’ll win a working PDP-11 with RT-11 installed. Our is a PDP-11/34
We’ve got to utilize KERMIT protocol to transfer files between a PC and a PDP-11.
CKermit PC aspect
It’s likely you’ll correct set up it:
sudo fair correct-bag set up ckermit
CKermit PDP-11 aspect
Right here is by hook or by crook sophisticated. How are you going to transfer KERMIT on the PDP11… without kermit itself?
Offer of information is http://www.columbia.edu/kermit/pdp11.html
“Bootstrapping” share is what it’s fundamental to put KERMIT to your PDP11
You’ll need TETRIS.SAV, this system for RT-11. It’s likely you’ll found it here: http://pdp-11.ru/mybk/hobot/ukdwk_archive/dwkwebcomplekt/rt11_symbol_games/
Connecting to our PDP-11 with Kermit
On PDP11, you launch KERMIT.SAV
and write at his instructed:
house file bin house line tt: house attributes off server
On PC aspect:
study what TTY is expounded to your USB/Serial converter! Most often is /dev/ttyUSB0 nonetheless can additionally be /dev/ttyUSB1 or no subject. Assuming /dev/ttyUSB0 is coorect, you correct must always launch kermit, and write at his instructed:
house port /dev/ttyUSB0 house line /dev/ttyUSB0 house bound 9600 house move with the circulate xon/xoff house service-behold off house attributes off sturdy join
After that, it’s likely you’ll additionally utilize GET and SEND commands on the PC to transfer files.
