Unable to boot TT emulation with tos 3.0.6

Hi I wanted to boot Hatari in TT emulation mode, and I cannot get to the desktop. Logo Display and ST/TT RAM Test come fine, and afterwards I get two bombs, the mouse cursor is at that point the well know bee, but nothing mores. I am using the Tos UK ROM from https://www.atariworld.org/tos-rom/. Thi...

Re: COPS french documentation

Documentation LGTM, but it says in couple of places that wdialog.prg is required with Atari TOS and old magic versions.
It is still the case ? I read on freemint-discuss you wanted to make COPS work without it.

Re: Announcing ready to use freemint sd card images for the ST

A small bump to mention I have released ST Mint 1.2 The biggest change is that now there is a working unix shell,the MirBSD Korn Shell, the same shell which ships on Android Phones. After booting on a 4MB ST, there is still one megabyte of RAM available. Enough to play the klapauzius adapted Defende...

Re: Cross Compiling GEMDOS program: how to read the content of a directory ?

No, you should be able to safely include osbind.h only and call GEMDOS as usual. I do this even for programs with even less C library, not even libcmini. Check out https://github.com/simonsunnyboy/stlibs4gcc/blob/master/wizzcat/main.c It doesn't use Fsfirst() or so but Fopen and go to read files wi...

Re: Minix 2.0.2 and 2.0.4 sources adapted for the Atari ST

There sources are self hosted, so you would need a Minix system to start.
There are install floppies and disk images availaible on the internet of Minix 1.6, 1.6.2, and 2.0.2

Re: Hatari 1.9 and Minix: it just works

mikesmith wrote:Hatari can log printer output to a file, and it closes and opens the file when you disable and re-enable printer logging. So create the logging file, enable logging, then under Minix, use tar to write to the printer device:

This is why I love Unix.

Re: Hatari 1.9 and Minix: it just works

hej mike, can you share Volkers' source tree on something like https://send.firefox.com/ ?
Minix 2 is BSD licensed, so sharing is not a problem :)

also how did you extract it via parallel port emulation in Hatari ? very curious !

Success... Hatari's printer port emulation works with Minix 2.0.2 and I was able to extract the source trees that way. If there's a good place to host these archives, please let me know. It'd be a shame to waste Volker's hard work. Yes let's keep this online ! I would suggest to open an account on ...

Re: RPMint Distribution

What about cross compiling ? It would solve the flaky hardware problem :) Everything I use in ST Mint was crosscompiled, and works fine. I don't know if it possible to crossbuilds rpms but it's possible for debian packages: https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/172500/how-to-cross-build-a-debian-...

Re: What are the current ST equivalent hardware replacements available?

Well I think everything is in the AtariSTRoadmap: https://github.com/mist-devel/mist-boar ... iSTRoadmap

I just bought a BenQ BL702A for my ST, knowing it can work with the MiST in its native 1280*1024 resolution :)

There is also a FGPA Subboard about the MiST in this forum.

Re: What are the current ST equivalent hardware replacements available?

I only know of the MiST, with Midi Ports and a Steroids Mode with monochrome 1280x1024, 14MB of RAM, it is a nice ST replacement I think :)

Hatari and hard disk drivers with emutos

Hi
Using Emutos with Hatari, I noticed that Emutos always use its own hard driver, ie bypassing whatever AHDI, ICD it would find on the boot disk.
Is that expected behaviour ?
I mean it works fine, it's just that I was surprised at first not to recognize my usual boot log.
