Thanks,
I liked this one : Parrotphernalia but it is being used by quite a few others.
I am thinking maybe "RockyandtheParrots"

Interesting to see Minix still around. I remember running an early version of it around the beginning of the 1990's. At the time the only way to obtain a current copy was to write to the author, Andy Tanenbaum, who taught the OS as part of his course on operating systems. Minix also formed a core part of his book, "Operating Systems: Design and Implementation" (which had a minimal version of minix included on cd).

ISTR at the time it was the only way to run a UNIX-like OS on the cheap. A couple of years later Linux became available and everything changed.

Interesting... Netcraft identifies the server as Apache 2.0.65, but the OS is *Unknown*.

http://toolbar.netcraft.com/site_rep...parrots.org%2F

Cool experiment, though.

It's a great concept (the microkernel). I have Andy's book, which has an early copy of Minix in the cover CD sleeve. I've run Minix3 on an x86, but the network driver for my particular NIC seems to give a fairly low thruput (usable, but definitely not high performance), and so I tend not to use it for regular computing. But, it's fun to play with the microkernel, and watch the drivers reload on their own when they crash (without taking the system down). I guess that's the idea.

Anyway, what would interest me more is to see Minix3 ported to the Raspberry, since there's fewer options in that arena. I see some upstart work on it here:

https://github.com/boricj

Also, there was a gsoc suggestion:

Thanks, it is Apache, kind of odd it say OS unknown:

Curl shows Unix, :
Code:
$ curl -s -I rockyandtheparrots.org
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Date: Tue, 12 Sep 2017 20:11:49 GMT
Server: Apache/2.0.65 (Unix) mod_ssl/2.0.65 OpenSSL/1.0.1g DAV/2

For some reason, I have been having trouble with it losing connectivity , about every 4
days, I have to re-boot it manually, to get it back running.

I had a domain running on Minix3 for a couple of months and it just ran. Never had to restart anything.

That is interesting, was it Apache, or Nginx,... and I wonder if you remember anything you
had to do with the configuration, thanks

The "Unix" reference you see in curl is reported by Apache, not your OS. As far as I know, Netcraft analyzes the packets it receives from the server to determine the OS; they must not have Minix 3 in their database of OSes.

Ok, thanks, I am using Minix3.3, but I see it now,"thttpd-2.25bnb5.tgz" it is available , might be worth a try.
If the problem persists.
thanks

I think moving to thttpd is probably wise. Isn't that version of apache way out of date?

The current version of thttpd is 2.27 not 2.25b

Here is an archive of the mailing list:

Ok, thanks,
Since I am using Minix 3.3 , any of the packages available for it are also going to be
older, and not the most up to date, How ever , I see in the link you provided:
Quote:
It compiles cleanly on most any Unix-like OS, specifically including FreeBSD, SunOS 4, Solaris 2, BSD/OS, Linux, OSF.
Fast:
So if I want the most up to date version, I would need to get it and compile it. Thanks
