OS for Motorola 6300

Post by Doug Moell » Sun, 01 Mar 1992 10:07:42



I'm looking for OS tapes or floppies for a Motorola
6300 series workstation.  It was actually made by
Convergent technologies but I don't know what thier
part number was.

Any help is appreciatted.  Thanks.

Do you realize what you're asking for?  From the first floppy label on the set:

        MOTOROLA Computer Systems
        S6300-UNIX Derived Operating System         09/18/85
        P/N 88900353   Barcode S/N AJK008929           FE07A
        Cupertino CML

        FIRST TIME INSTALL 1 of 2            DISK   1 of  32

The "FE07A" is the OS version; near as I can tell, this is the last one for
that platform.

And after you install those 32 disks, there's at least 8 more, for 40 disks.

To format, read/write/verify that many disks would take a l-o-n-g time,
which is why I haven't even made a backup set yet (since I have two of the
systems running, it isn't too urgent).

Suggest you post to comp.sys.3b1 on the off-chance someone has a spare set
they could sell you.  The Motorola 6300/6350 is the same as the CT Miniframe,
and is logically identical to the 3B1/PC7300/UNIXPC/Safari4/S4 (such that
3B1 executables which don't use shared libs can directly execute on the 6300).

The Motorola/Four-Phase building in Cupertino no longer exists, and Convergent
Technologies was absorbed into UNISYS a few years ago at which point all their
"old" stuff was tossed in the dumpster and/or sold off to "scavengers" such
as Weird Stuff Warehouse.

Or you can call Motorola Field Services' Customer Service Dept. to get
a copy of the OS. The number is 1-800-648-0500 . Motorola still does
hardware and software support on the 6300. Give that a try.
