Help finding a scan of Using Amiga UNIX

Hi guys. I am looking for a scanned copy of Using Amiga UNIX. I was able to find scans of the other two manuals, Installing and Learning, but I can't find any available scans of the other one. If anyone knows or has a scan, it would be great! Thanks

It's not great quality but should all be legible...

http://web.archive.org/web/200409060...x_download.htm

Scroll down a bit and click the Using Amiga UNIX cover image. ua.rar, 56.19MB. Archive contains a JPEG file for each page of the manual.

I have also uploaded ua.rar to:
Code:
hXXps://www.media!fire.com/?pgye19ht19j9pzz

Dude you are awesome. Thank you so much. Yeah quality isn't great on that one lol, but exactly what I was looking for.

Btw I ended up using your help from another thread about a tape image to get amiga unix up and running too. So thank you for that too!

You can get that and other docs here: https://amix.failsure.net/HomePage

I PDF'd those jpegs some years ago and they are kindly hosted there.

Hi. I believe the download link to Using Amiga Unix is broken on that site. I wasn't able to download a couple days ago when I tried.

Hi Amix enthusiasts.
While we are at it, are the other Amix related manuals available somewhere for download? I newer came across these:
* Installing Amiga UNIX
* Working Together - Amiga UNIX and AmigaDOS

The Using Amiga Unix manual link at amix.failsure.net seemed to be broken. I re-uploaded it (I presume it's the same version), this time searchable version. (It's first in the Documentation and literature -section. I couldn't remove the non-working link. The CMS system the site uses is a bit weird).

I have all the four manuals (Installing, Learning, Using, Working Together). The Learning one is already at the site, others I am hoping to scan at good quality and upload some day.

The last manual, Working Together - Amiga UNIX and Amiga DOS, is a short one. Most of it is just descriptions how the two OSs differ, what commands are same/different, and how to install (and re-install) both OSs on one machine and how to boot to whichever you want. And how to modify partitions from both. There is a chapter about transfering files between the two but it's only about the bru -command and reading/writing floppies. In my opinion this manual gives very little extra if you have read the other Amix manuals, and about half is just basic Workbench/HDToolbox stuff.

For Installing Amiga UNIX, see this posting. I have the Working Together manual too, but am really hoping someone else either properly scans theirs, or at least uploads an at-least-it's-legible version so I don't have to.

Edit to add: I have also uploaded the Installing Amiga UNIX PDF to Media!fire:
hXXps://www.media!fire.com/?qvr9ayxndyami47

(Remove ! and change hXXps to https in the URL after pasting it into your browser's URL bar.)

Thanks for the link.

Installing Amix never was an issue for me. I have it running on my A3000 and in FS-UAE on my Mac. The only issue I have is, I don't have an Amix compatible network card for the A3000 nor is slirp working for me in FS-UAE. :-(

I just want the missing manuals because of curiosity, specially the "Working Together" one, as I don't see in Amix any provision for that other than writing files to AmigaDos disks.

Alas, you are right. It seems I don't have the file on my hard drive anymore, either. I think I have it on a CD somewhere. Will try to retrieve it one of these months...

Stuff that doesn't require DNS should work in FS-UAE. You could try doing SLIP to another computer on the A3000 with a nullmodem cable. What's your network card?

Yeah I use SLIP but speed is no fun :-(.
I have a X-Surf 2. Im regularly checking for A2065 or Ariadne NICs, but prices are prohibitively expensive when they show up on eBay.

Found the file on the drive of my OS4 machine. Too big for the Zone. Where else can I post it?

My mistake - was not the right file after all. mark_k's version on the Wiki seems to be based on/better than the version I did, so I'll recommend using that.
