        $ pidp8i stop

There are [other significant differences][mdif] between the old stable
distribution and this one. You’ll want to be familiar with that
documentation’s content before reading Oscar Vermeulen’s documentation,
as it still refers to his last release in December 2015.


<a id="runtime"></a>
## Runtime Configuration

The `pidp8i` command may be configured by the optional `pidp8i.rc` file,
located by default in `/opt/pidp8i/etc/`.  This is a Bourne shell script
which is sourced by `pidp8i` if it exists, and recognizes the following
variables:


<a id="rc-screen-manager"></a>
### SCREEN_MANAGER=screen

By default, pidp8i installs and uses [GNU screen(1)][gnuscreen] to
manage screen sessions.  However, if you prefer to use [tmux(1)][tmux]
as a screen manager for the pidp8i session, you may set
`SCREEN_MANAGER=tmux`.  Note that if you make this change, you are
responsible for installing tmux; on Raspbian, this is done by:

        $ sudo apt-get install tmux

Switching between configured screen managers must be done while pidp8i
is stopped.

<a id="systemd" name="unit"></a>
## The systemd Unit File

Starting with release 2019.04.25, the PiDP-8/I software distribution is
based on [systemd][systemd], since Raspbian is now on its third
systemd-based release.

## <a id="os8di"></a>The OS/8 RK05 Disk Image

For the first several years of the PiDP-8/I project, the OS/8 RK05 disk
image included with the PiDP-8/I software (called `os8.rk05`) was based
on an image of a real RK05 disk pack that someone allegedly found in a
salvaged PDP-8 system.  Parts of the image were corrupt, and not all of
