Hi,

A while back, somebody send me a DVD, an archive of all his NeXT Software, archives and Download. The DVD is dying (read error) so I made some archives that I want to share.

Apps (1.3 Gb) http://www.megaupload.com/?d=N9Z63RSR
Some Docs (PDF, NeXTZine) http://www.megaupload.com/?d=TVQK2525

More to come: Soundfiles, System, and disk image of SQL Sybase, Mathematica, Lotus Improv...

There is quite a bit of software there that is already in the file archive however those disk images are really nice.

-NeXT 68040 Cube with NS 3.3 and 64Mb ram

iDork

How do you mount the "diskimage" files?
NS TurboColor,  SparcStation 5, Ultra 10, Octane SSI, HP 9000 C110, AlphaStation 200, Apple IIgs|IIe|IIc, Amiga 500+|600|1200, Commodore 64|128

pentium

I don't know how to mount them but in the file archive we have the app to dump the images back to disk.

That would have worked just fine, if I only had 2.88 MB floppies to restore them on. Unfortunately, I have never had the pleasure of owning such media.

Last archive: System http://www.megaupload.com/?d=UJISE5YD

drivers, Iso, tools...

I rememebr that I had restored Image disk, maybe using a tool named 'Disk Copy II'. I will check on my NSLab today.

Yes, you need ED disk. I found one box of ten, some years ago.

I haven't looked as the floppy images....

Are you sure they are all 2.88mb? Half the ones I've had with commercial software on them were not 2.88mb disks. They were normal 1.44mb disks.

I'm pretty sure some of them are 2.88MB (2,949,166 bytes to be exact). On top of that they don't appear to be "raw" dumps, but stored in some proprietary format (DiskCopy II I assume). Even the 1.44MB images are in the same format (a little larger file that a raw dump). They don't seem to be compressed or encrypted in any way because you can read the names of the stored files, but I can't clearly identify any type of header. I tried removing the beginning of the file, leaving just enough bytes for a 1.44MB image, but they still won't mount. I guess I'll have to do something more complex than that to trick VMware into mounting them    :wink:.

I've just found another DVD. NexStep 3.2, 3.3; OpenStep 4.0, 4.1, 4.2 User Editions and developer edition and something that look like Windows Programs, with an installer: OpenStep Enterprise toolkit for WIndows, it seem.

I think I can't put this one on the net, but the last part OpenStep Enterprise for Windows may be interesting for someone ?

Take the hand, also on my NS 3.3 and OpenStep orignals CD I lost a while back.

When NeXTStep will be considered "abandonware" and we will can put images on Internet freely?

The short and long answer...... never. This http://www.rhapsodyos.org/misc/dont_ask/piracy.html page will give you all the information you need to know.
Also just check out the rest of his site if you really are interested in Next or Rhapsody/Mac OS X Server 1.x for more than just a passing fancy, or even if you are just here to browse it is still a good site to read.
