RX20 (un)support package for TOPS-10 7.03
Contents, Installation Instructions, and General Cautions
RX20 (un)support allows TOPS-10 running on a KS20 (2020) system to (un)support
up to 2 RX211 floppy disk controllers, with up to 2 RX02 drives on each
controller. The (un)support provided is that of a non-file-structured device.
Some preliminary utilities are provided which may read DOS (or KLDCP or
RXDP) and RT format floppys.
To install RX20 (un)support, you will require the Field Image TOPS-10 7.03
The following files from the customer (un)supported tape are required:
UNSUP.FIL - Adds new modules to assembly and LINK templates
RX2SER.MAC - Device service routine
RX20.DOC - Monitor Calls insert for RX20s
RX20.INS - This file
Actual installation is fairly straightforward. Perform the following steps.
1. Use the MUNGEN dialog (in MONGEN) to INCLUDE the RX20 questions.
Procede thru the HDWCNF dialog.
2. Ensure that the files from the customer supported tape are in
your build area. UNSUP.FIL will cause the distributed monitor
build procedure to assemble ALL of the KS unsupported modules.
3. Finish building your monitor according to the 7.03 Software
Installation of the RX211 subsystem is performed exactly according
to the RX02 User's Guide and Technical Manuals. Note that the NPG jumper
