These are Apple HFS partitioned CD-ROM images.  So you'll need a Mac to read them.

Quote from: "barcher174"Awesome! Thanks for posting.

Yeah totally!

I want to get the EIDE driver building, and try to make it play safer, I don't care about speed or capacity just yet.

I'm just sick of 'commad 0x20' timing out on anything new emulation wise, I want to get out of Qemu 0.90 land... And maybe onto native hardware!

But yes, lots of things to do, see how 0.1 and 0.3 really differ, get a built 0.3 dump, get that EIDE driver playing calmer, I don't care if it's PIO mode only.. lol.

Cool! Collectively, let's not lose these again!!!!

After realizing that I have the same NIC driver in NeXTSTEP, Rhapsody, and Darwin 0.1/0.3 /, and Darwin can use the root off both the OPENStep and NeXTSTEP CD's I think this is basically the source code that we've all been waiting for!

That makes this Rhapsody 5.5, the second to last release of the Mach 2.5 kernel.

While on one hand something much older with m68k may have been nice for black hardware, at the same time starting with something near the products end is good too.

I just need to work out to diff it better to see real changes.

Wow awesome, the source to Darwin 0.1!

I don't suppose you ever saved ISO images of anything of that era?

Sorry, no, neozeed.

I have some more parts of the kernel sources but no ISO-images. I had only a slow and timed ISDN connection the time they were on the ftp archives.
I got them from the old leo ftp archive before their big disk crash when they lost much of the unique NeXT stuff they had :-(.

The driverkit file belongs to Darwin 0.2 and was not contained in the 0.1 release. As written before unfortunately I did not try grab everything from 0.2 relying on the later availabilty on the archives :(

I came across this post on gnu.gnustep.discuss

Looks like only the "Foundation" OS stuff. Foundation, AppKit, and the ilk
are not included. They consist of the value-added toys that Apple will
hold on to I think.

I'm no expert though, there is quite a bit of code in the directory. This
is the directory listing (Apple ppl: if this is a bad thing to do please
drop me a line. I'm sorry. ;-))

Needless to say, at least you got driverkit from 0.2, since it wasn't in 0.1
