= How to run xv6/jos on a CSE machine =
You can use the *guest* account on a lab machine, but your data will be deleted on logout!
You can SSH into a CSE login machine like so:
$ ssh USER@login.cs.nmt.edu
If you'd like to use qemu graphically, you should use this ssh command instead:
$ ssh -XYC USER@login.cs.nmt.edu
There are more in-depth instructions here. Or, of course, you can log into any CSE lab machine.
We've created a wrapper script that'll run `make` with the right variables! First, cd into your git repository. Then it's as simple as:
$ 325make qemu-nox-gdb
If you'd like to also launch gdb at the same time you can run:
$ 325make –gdb
This command will start up a tmux session; there's a good primer on tmux here. You can see all of the options available with `-h`:
$ 325make -h
If you prefer to use the magic of containers, either on your own machine or on the CSE machines, there is a Ubuntu 16.04 Dockerfile created for this class located on github.
