IBM OS/2 1.0 revision 7.68.17 is a build of OS/2 1.0. This build is an early FOOTBALL compile, as it displays the old codename PIGSKIN on the boot screen, intending to include changes to improve the overall performance of the operating system. It is based on the SIZZLE revision 7.68.18 build and thus the kernel hasn't been updated. Only the debug version of this build is currently available to the public.

Bugs and quirks[edit | edit source]

Booting[edit | edit source]

This build requires a debugger connected to COM2 in order to boot, as the boot waits for input from the debugger in order to continue booting. Without a debugger, the boot will simply hang. It is unknown if any known hypervisors are known to boot the build.

To boot this build, enter the "g" command on the debugger.
