Due: Tuesday, October 4, at 11:59pm
Note: This is an individual assignment. Each student must submit a copy of their session's output.
Nachos is a Java application written to perform the functions of a real operating system. The details of how the operating system implements concepts such as threading, virtual memory, and processes are exposed to you. All of the source code implementing the Nachos operating system is included with the distribution. However, this baseline implementation does not implement some very useful features. During the quarter, your job will be to complete the missing portions of the operating system and use the functionality in your projects.
In this pre-project you will familiarize yourself with installing and compiling the Nachos distribution. The tutorial below should not take that much time; if you seem to be having serious problems, check Piazza and post a note if necessary.
Also take some time to read the instructions for all projects on the main projects page.% tar xvfz nachosj-cse120-fa16.tar.gz
You can safely ignore the compiler warnings. Then run the nachos program:% cd nachos/proj0 % make
The nachos command is a script that invokes the java VM to run Nachos. It should already be in your path, and you can also find the script in bin/nachos. Running the program causes the methods of nachos.threads.ThreadedKernel to be called in the order listed in threads/ThreadedKernel.java:% nachos
Your session should resemble the following:

And that's it. Be sure to test your changes before you submit them.*** awesome thread n looped m times
For this project, each student must submit their project using a
script we provide. Go to your nachos directory (and not the proj0
subdirectory) and run the
% cd nachos % submit-proj0
You will have until the posted due date to submit this project. You can submit as many times as you like. The last version submitted before the due date will be the one accepted.
