The current version of TacomaOS (TOS) is developed using Java 1.1.8
and Linux, hence it is guaranteed to run within this environment. However,
it should run in Java environments with higher version numbers. Furthermore,
there are no operating system dependencies in TOS, so it should run without
problems on other operating systems as well.
Remark: The installation procedure outlined below is targetted a
system equipped with the Java Development
Kit from SUN.
Download the TOS distribution, either the class archive (tos.jar)
or the source distribution from SourceForge
Download the file ".tosrc" to your home directory
and modify the values defined in the file.
Dependent of whether you have put "tos.jar" in your CLASSPATH environment
variable or not, you may start the TOS kernel as follows:
Make sure only you can read the file (chmod 600 .tosrc).
Make sure you change the property "tos.skey" to a string that is only known
Carriers can now be shipped to computers running a TOS kernel.
If "tos.jar" is in the class path:
If "tos.jar" isn't in the class path:
jre -cp <path>/tos.jar
