My Raspberry Pi Thinks It's a Mainframe!Doctorwho8 wrote:Hello!
Is there a size limit on card sizes for the Pi B device? I am looking at applying the one I have here for participating in something rather outrageous for the community, it would involve running an emulator called Hercules who runs the different operating systems that IBM wrote for the S/360 and S/370 and practically all of the S/390 ones.
Ordinarily I would setup a 32G card, but I'm planning on tracking down a 64G card if they exist or even a 128G card for this activity.
Been there done that on my B & my A+.asandford wrote:My Raspberry Pi Thinks It's a Mainframe!
Although I haven't tried it, I thought the zLinux was OK.DougieLawson wrote: You can NOT run any current mainframe OS without getting sued by IBM. The latest you can run is 24-bit MVS 3.8 at about 1.7 MIPS.
I've got x3270 built for the RPi at https://github.com/DougieLawson/x3270-4-RaspberryPi
Linux on system Z is OK on Hercules, no idea how it performs. (I was the first person in the country to get that running on a R/390 system around the time that Marist got 30,000 Linux systems running on a single mainframe.)asandford wrote: Although I haven't tried it, I thought the zLinux was OK.
I spent 10 years working on a real 4381...
