MVS Turnkey CD V1
These are very large files and it may not be practical to successfully download them using low speed network connections. These files are the first and only version to date of the MVT Turnkey CD produced by Jay Maynard to be handed out at the SHARE MVT Birthday Party. This is a .ISO image you will need to UNRAR the .ISO and burn a CD or extract the contents using a program like WinImage or ISO Buster.
PLEASE TRY TO HELP RESOLVE AND REPORT BUGS. You will need all four files.
RAR tests the integrity of the files but for anyone that wants to make an extra check here are the MD5 checksums
MD5(mvt.part01.rar) = d093c0cb0c6fd4581663fd7df705d4e6
Here is the HTML Installation documentation that is on the CD.
The Turnkey MVT CD-ROM
This CD-ROM contains a complete, runnable OS/360 MVT release 21.8F system. The system has all of the compilers (except, at this writing, the FORTRAN runtime library), TSO, TCAM, and HASP-II 4.0 retrofitted from OS/VS2 SVS. There are also copies of many modification tapes. Everything's set up for use under Hercules, copies of which for Linux, Windows, and Mac OS X are also included.
The process used to generate the system is documented in Introduction to Generating and Running OS/360 on Hercules.
The following directories are on this CD:
In addition, a copy of The Wooden Paddle may be found in the root directory of this CD, as the filke woodenpaddle.pdf. The installable copies of hercules are in the root, as well.
This turnkey CD is not as turnkey as the excellent version for MVS that Volker Bandke has made. You'll have to do the work of installing Hercules and the MVT system yourself. Fortunately, this isn't hard; a description of the process may be found here.
14 Feb 2003: NOTE: While HASP is included in the pregenerated system, it does not currently work. Any job that requests SYSOUT will ABEND with an S200. It's included, nevertheless, because I suspect the problem is easily fixed by someone more experienced with it than I am, and so that those who want to play with the system will have a real-life example of what systems programmers of the 1970s had to go through.
