Install VirtualBox (eg on Mac:
brew cask install virtualbox)
Download Debian 3.1 from here: https://virtualboxes.org/images/debian/
Create a new VM in VirtualBox and select the vdi file from the above archive as a disk. Check the VM settings:
- Make sure the disk is mounted as an IDE device, SATA errors out on boot (in the Storage tab)
- Also, make sure the pointing device is set to PS/2 Mouse (in the General tab)
Start the VM. Log in as
X11 needs to be installed.
Edit the sources-list (
/etc/apt/sources.list) with eg
nano by commenting out everything and adding:
deb http://archive.debian.org/debian/ sarge contrib main non-free
To install X11, execute:
apt-get install x-window-system
Most important step here is to set the mouse as a PS/2 device, else X won't boot. I also chose a relatively low video resolution, eg 800x600, 60 Hz/16 bit, don't know if it's necessary.
To download the LFG software:
wget ftp://ftp.parc.xerox.com/pub/lfg/linux/intel/lde (not sure if necessary)
chmod +x lde
chmod +x ldex
Now click anywhere and select Debian -> XShells -> XTerm
This should start up Medley. After a while, a kind of REPL will show up.
