[Origional From (Andy Tannenbaum ) 88/02/23]



MINIX is an operating system that is a subset of UNIX Version 7.  It contains
nearly all the V7 system calls, and these calls are identical to the
corresponding V7 calls.  It also includes a Bourne-compatible shell, and
close to 100 utility programs, including cc, grep, ls, make, etc.  To the
average user, it is effectively V7 UNIX.  If you dig deep enough, you will,
however, find some differences.

The MINIX kernel has been written from scratch by Andy Tanenbaum (
It does not contain ANY AT&T code at all.  The utility programs have been
written by Andy Tanenbaum, his students, and a number of other people,
including people on USENET.  None of the utilities contain any AT&T code
either.  The shell, the Pascal and C compilers, make, etc. have all been
completely redone.  As a result, this code is not covered by the ATT UNIX
license, and it can be made available.

MINIX was originally written for the IBM PC, XT, and AT.  It has since been
ported to the NS 16032 and the 68000 (Atari ST).  It will also work on many
386-based machines.  A list of clones on which MINIX has been tested is
included below.  These tests apply to Version 1.1 and 1.2.  It is thought that
1.3 runs on everything that ran 1.2, and more.

MINIX is being sold by:

   Prentice-Hall, Englewood Cliffs, NJ 07632 (1-800-223-1360), and
   Prentice-Hall Int'l, Hemel, Hempstead, England (+44 442 231555)

When ordering it, please specify one of the following versions:

        MINIX for 640K IBM PC $79.95
        MINIX for 512K IBM PC/AT $79.95 (0-13-583865-7)
        MINIX sources on mag tape $79.95

All distributions contain executable binaries and the complete source code.

MINIX is described in detail in the following book:

   Title:       Operating Systems: Design and Implementation
   Author:      Andrew S. Tanenbaum
   Publisher:   Prentice-Hall
   ISBN:        0-13-637406-9   (Hardcover)
                0-13-637331-3   (Paperback, outside of U.S. and Canada)

A German translation was begun in Feb. 1988.  There is also a paperback
MINIX Reference Manual that is a subset of the book.  It contains only the
MINIX speific information, not the general background stuff on operating
systems that bhe book contains. The software package does not contain a
manual; this is contained in the appendices to the book, which also contain
a complete source code listing (in C) of the MINIX kernel.

No.  MINIX has been copyrighted by Prentice-Hall.  Prentice-Hall has decided to
permit a limited amount of copying of the sources and binaries for educational
use.  Professors may make copies for students in their operating systems
classes.  Academic researchers may use it for their new experimental machines,
and things like that.  A small amount of private copying of diskettes for the
use of personal friends is ok, but please do not make more than 3 copies from
each original.  Prentice-Hall is trying to be more reasonable than most
software publishers.  Please do not abuse this.    Online repositories of the
full source code distribution are not permitted.  All commercial uses of MINIX
require written permission from Prentice-Hall; for the most part, they are
willing to grant such permission in return for a royalty on sales.

Various other programs have also been posted, and should be available from
the archives.

If you are on USENET, subscribe to newsgroup comp.os.minix.  There are about
10,000 people in this group, and new software, bug fixes, and general discussion
about MINIX take place here.  If you are on BITNET or ARPANET, you can get this
newsgroup via a mailing list by contacting:
   BITNET:  sending a message (either interactive or mail) to listserv@ndsuvm1
                signup minix-l Your_Full_Name

At present there are three versions for the IBM PC line, V1.1, V1.2, and V1.3.
A version for the Atari ST is in preparation.  The IBM V1.3 contains many
bug fixes and other improvements over 1.1 and 1.2.  In particular, although V1.1
works fine with genuine IBM PCs, it gives trouble on some clones, especially
hard disk problems.  In this respect V1.2 is much better.  V1.1 is thus
obsolete and is no longer available from Prentice-Hall.  V1.3 will have many
enhancements over 1.2, including networking and RS232 support.


Yes.  There are several archives, one run by Vincent Broman on,
another run by James Galvin on, one on the Bitnet
"LISTSERV" at NDSUVM1, and an archive area on

9.1 Internet: Bugs.Nosc.Mil

Bugs.Nosc.Mil archives comp.os.minix news articles of lasting interest and
other Minix material, such as a list of machines reported to be able to run
Minix.  Material of widespread interest includes diffs for updating v1.1 to
v1.2 and v1.2 to v1.3, diffs for cross compilation under MS-C and Turbo-C,
the new asld with split I&D, the editor Elle v4.1, and recently a port of

This material is available by anonymous FTP (during non-business hours)
on in directory pub/Minix .  The file SUBJECTS contains a list
of Subject lines serving as a kind of index.  The file names are mostly just
the Message-Id of a news article.

Several ways to get these kinds of goodies, in order:

1.  Look, or ask someone you know to look, for articles still available
on the machine where you read news, or on a neighbor.
2.  Ask the person who posted the material to mail it to you.
3.  Get access to a machine on the ArpaNet (or talk to an acquaintance who
has access) and FTP to or .
4.  To get very large amounts of material from archives, talk to someone
in charge of it, e.g. me, about mailing a tape.  Surface-mailing of tapes
is cheap.

Abuse of the system will cause bad karma.  Contents may have settled during

9.2 Internet: Simtel20.Arpa

A limited archive of MINIX related material is available from
in the directory PD:. These same files are available on Bitnet
from LISTSERV@RPICICGE in the same directory.

To get these files from LISTSERV@RPICICGE, use the /pddir and /pdget commands
for a directory listing and file retrieval, respectively.

9.3 Bitnet: NDSUVM1.BITNET / Internet: vm1.NoDak.Edu

At NDSU we have two archives of information about Minix on our LISTSERV. The
first is an automated log of all messages sent to the MINIX-L list, and the
other is an manually organized archive of sources sent to the list.  Both are
accessed by sending either interactive messages (bitnet only) or mail (all
other networks) to LISTSERV@NDSUVM1. Some possible addresses from other
networks are:

        Bitnet: listserv@ndsuvm1
        Internet: lists...@vm1.NoDak.EDU
        UUCP: psuvax1!ndsuvm1.bitnet!listserv

    **NOTE** Many Unix sites have had difficulty contacting this server
    because it is VERY stringent about what it accepts as valid mail.

The mailing list logs are kept in the "MINIX-L" section, with all filenames
of the form:

    MINIX-L LOGyymmw

where "yy" is the year, "mm" is the numeric month and "w" is an alphabetic
character from A to E indicating what week of the month.  Several months of
log files are kept on-line, the number depending on disk space availability.

Database functions are also available on the listserv to aid in searching
this archive.  To obtain a "Subject" index of the MINIX-L archives, send the
listserv a file or mail with the following "job" in the message body:

//      JOB  Echo=No
Database Search DD=Rules
//Rules DD   *
search * in minix-l since 88/06/01

and you will be sent a file containing all of the 'Subject:' lines sent to
MINIX-L@NDSUVM1 (the Bitnet side of the Minix discussion lists) since
July 1, 1988.  If you wish to request one or more items, replace the
'index' line in the above job with 'print [refnum]' where 'refnum' is the
reference number contained in the index listing.  Documentation on all
database functions is available by sending the following command (contents
of the body of a message) to the listserv:


The other (manually maintained) archives are kept in the "MINIX" section.

To obtain a list of the files in either of these archive sections, send
the command:


Files are retrieved with the 'GET' command:


to get the file "MORE INFO" from the group "MINIX".

For a complete list of information on the listserv:

        INFO ?

Due to the 80-character per line (punched card) limit on Bitnet mail, many of
the files will be shipped using an encoding scheme that allows logical lines
to be split up into many physical lines.  The default for going to other
networks is "Listserv Punch".  Information on obtaining a program to decode
listserv punch format is sent with each encoded file.

9.4 BBS: The Mars Hotel

Described by: j...@mimsy.UUCP (James da Silva)

I run a PC-based Electronic Bulletin Board System (BBS) that has
carried the traffic of Usenet's Comp.os.minix steadily since August,
1987. Early this year I started providing a formal Minix archive,
similar to the archive on  I have been providing this
service for those who are not lucky enough to have net or ftp access.

The BBS is not a true gateway to Usenet, like some Fidonet nodes are;
rather it is a "delivery service" whereby new comp.os.minix articles
are gathered daily and posted as messages on the BBS.  Long articles
are automatically ARC'ed and posted to the file area for downloading.
I keep the raw traffic around for about 2 months.

At around the 15th of each month I edit the previous month's traffic
to keep articles of lasting interest, which I post in the archive for
that month.  I divide the month's archive into several ARC files, all
less than 100k, to make downloading easier.  For any given month, the
index of articles is in MNXyymmA.ARC, and the actual articles start in
MNXyymmB.ARC.  You can just download the index, then download the ARC
files that contain articles of interest to you.  A complete index is
always in MNXINDEX.ARC.

The archive starts with August, 1987.

        The Mars Hotel BBS, (301)470-3569 (PC-Pursuitable)

        No registration required, no donations accepted.
        Everyone gets 60 minutes/day.
        No upload/download ratios (but don't be a jerk!)

9.5 England (Janet) (icdoc.uucp)

An archive of the worthwhile postings from the comp.os.minix
newsgroup is available from either via mail or by GUEST
niftp.  For details about how to access this service send a mail
message with NO Subject: field to:

and a message body of:

        request catalogue
        topic minix
        request end

This will mail you back details of the various ways to obtain the files.

This service is only available inside the UK.  We have no funds to
send such mail internationally.

9.6 Netherlands

An archive of all comp.os.minix articles is saved on
It can be accessed through the mail server,
by placing commands in the Subject or contents of your message of the form:

        send index                      # overall index
        send disclaimer                 # I am not responsible for the contents
        send 1989.Jan                   # last month's index
        send 1989.Jan 7...@louie.udel.EDU       # referenced article
        send ast                        # index of Andy's Words
(Remove the comments!)

Please note that the primary intended audience of this archive is the Europe
area. Not north america. The mcvax!uunet link is kind of expensive and
overloaded... and besides, the americans have their own archives.

I am also willing to include other usefull MINIX materials in this archive.
The source upgrade sets are coming (I hope) and I plan
to make the MGR window system source available when it is complete, for
those brave souls who want to try to get it running.

MINIX runs on the IBM PC, XT, and AT.  It also runs on those clones that are
IBM compatible.  You would be amazed at how many are not.

'*' in "editor choice of column" means that the respondent did not indicate
whether his/her information applied to 1.1 or 1.2, or that information got
lost and the editor inserted the information into the column he deemed most
appropiate.  It may be the wrong column however, so be warned.

Version 1.0 is the version in the book.  MINIX 1.1 is the oldest you may have
and the differences are minor.  V1.2 is available from Prentice-Hall.
V1.3 exists and should be available from Prentice-Hall in early March.
