• Hercules mainframe emulator

    Had anyone installed Hercules Mainframe emulator https://github.com/hercules-390/hyperion and installed any version of zOS ou MVS?

    Installed hercules but noticed that hercules.cnf is not present. So before I dig into it, if someone has already installed, I would like to know how to configure it or get some help.


  • Ok, I just copy the config from gentoo page to start, and manage to get hercules running.

    Creating DASD is easy will create it later, so I managed to get as below. But putting zOS or MVS will be the real challenge. Help me.
