Adventures in A/UX, Apple's UNIX for the Classic Macintosh!

Thanks https://PCBWay.com – Today we’re putting UNIX on the Quadra 700… but not just any UNIX! This is last and greatest version of Apple’s A/UX. Let’s see what kind of shenanigans we can pull, and get this Quadra ready to be a game server at this year’s Vintage Computer Festival!

    Nice, A/UX is a really interesting operating system and one that I'd love to mess around with! Also congrats on passing 20k subs! I just noticed that, keep up the good work!

    x11 not working due to xterm was passed, incorrect argument. Check /root/.xinitrc file where xtrem was called what almost mean about error opening somehow file.

    I love that you will run a mud from this. I first started mudding on a Mac LC and I'm watching your video while playing a mud in 2021.

    I know it's your style but can you ease up on the hand gestures a bit? It's kind of distracting attention away from the excellent content. Like I'm wondering where you got that bruise on your arm from, lol, I don't need that in my head y'know? 😛

    I never got a chance to try A/UX, though I did buy a manual for it from a local antique store of all places. The closest I got to this was running MkLinux on a PowerMac 6100 in the early 2000s. I mostly used it as an MP3 player, using mpg123.

    Haha, after about 20 years of me being a *nix nerd, this was entertaining, but boy was I groaning a few times from the newbie mistakes I likely experienced myself ages ago 😆

    This feels a bit like an precursor to WSL. Run a consumer desktop operating system with easy access to a production grade operating system running in the background.

    This is very similar to what Google is doing with ChromeOS these days as you can run Android apps on it natively.

    I wonder why Apple didn't show A/UX more love? Maybe if they maintained it longer so it worked with Power PC perhaps they could have developed it into a replacement for later Mac OS classic versions or Copeland or even a different OS X if we lived in a timeline where they never acquired NeXT and OS X never came to be.

    I think it sees both Ethernet cards: it said that it sees 1 "ae" card (nothing about "ao" cards), and then it didn't let you configure the ao one, because it had to be rebooted first due to the ae card having been just set up.

    How dare you say "vi" is not easy to use???? 😂 Just joking of course. Vi/Vim are awesome once you learn them but they have a steep-ish learning curve for a text/code editor.
