Forum rules


Please read the following rules before posting a download request in this area:

1. Don't post a request if you have under 10 posts as stated on the front page. If you do anyway, it will be deleted without further notice. This also applies to other members: If you see a request by someone with less than 10 posts and it hasn't been deleted yet, please don't reply to it.
2. Don't request for warez or any copyrighted software. Only betas (no matter how old or new) and finals of operating systems and applications that are at least 10 years old and therefore classified as abandonware are allowed to be uploaded to and shared on the BetaArchive FTP server.
3. If you have your own FTP server where you'd like other members to upload what you're looking for to, please don't post its login details in any open forum as that will probably lead to abuse. Post the login details in the Private Servers section instead.
4. Check that we don't already have the file on our FTP servers. If you don't have access to the FTP servers then ask someone who has (a moderator for example).

Hello everyone.

I have Caldera Open UNIX 8 with additional software.
Here is a list of what I have:
Base Install CD 1 & 2
Optional Services CD
OpenLinux 3.1 RPMS
Skunkware 8
Supplementary Open Source 3.1
Open UNIX Dev Kit
Caldera Solutions Showcase

I'm not sure about the open source packages since they are linux rpms.
Is this of interest to anyone? Your thoughts will be appreciated. Thanks!

lardon

If it's original discs then it would be acceptable and added to the FTP.

They are originals. Also, is it a big deal if I don't include the boot floppies? I'm not able to make images of the floppies. All four diskettes are included in the first CD anyways.

You don't have a floppy drive? Can you at least scan the floppies?

I do have one. It's just that using WinImage gives me a read error when trying to make a proper dump. The only alternative I can think of is using the dd command in Linux. The floppies appears to be in UNIX format, as far as I'm aware.

dd should work fine too.

Took a while, but I've got everything uploaded. It should be in the finished folder by now.

If you scan the floppies it will probably be enough. As you said, they are included on CD1 anyway and so there's definitely nothing on them beyond what a regular sector dump would capture anyways...

I managed to successfully image the floppies using dd, and verified it in a virtual machine. So I thought I might as well include it.

Out of curiosity - did this get released on the FTP server? I can't find it under '/(Abandonware) Operating Systems/PC/Other' and I think it's a pretty unique upload (thanks lardon!), the only missing UnixWare 7.x release.

Thanks @SistemaRayoXP, it doesn't show up in search. As I mentioned before, it's not in '/(Abandonware) Operating Systems/PC/Other' where all the other UnixWare releases are, so I was kind of expecting it (but it was good to check in case it got miscategorized or something).


@lardon: Did you get the chance to upload it?

I did upload it. I was wondering the same thing. Last time I checked, it hasn't been released onto the FTP. I thought I did everything correctly. Will ask mrpijey about this. I didn't get any notification that it got rejected.

Also, it will be about a month before I get back home for break. If I need to re-upload the release I'll be more than happy to do so. But towards mid-December will be the earliest I can do this. Sorry.
