Re: MiNT RPM repo.

Everything FreeMiNT-related was moved to GitHub, including SpareMiNT: https://freemint.github.io/sparemint/sp ... nload.html
But don't expect anything up to date; the old SpareMiNT repo was kept for historical reasons. It's not maintained.

Re: EmuTOS 0.9.9

I must admit I have a hard time understanding why some people seem to want EmuTOS to be a perfect clone of some specific version of TOS when any TOS you may wish to run on any machine/emulator you may have is floating about on the Net. Beats me.

Re: EmuTOS 0.9.9

Why is EMUTOS called EMUTOS ??? If I am right it is called EmuTOS because its main purpose was to be replacement for the original TOS-es in EMUlators and clones because of the Copyrights. So, it is EMU comes from EMUlate... but it is a bad emulator as it cannot "reproduce the function or actio...

Re: NVDI & character mapping

Unicode is supported in NVDI 5 (not in 3). Thats possible. I was just looking at TOS.HYP, where some of the relevant functions are reported by available since NVDI 3. But i'm actually using NVDI 5.03, so that is not problem. And in general, output works, just that vqt_char_index() does not. Troll: ...

Re: Trying NetSurf on Atari TT

Out of curiosity: how much time does it take to load the atari-forum.com frontpage? Just so I can compare with my Firebee. It takes about 28 seconds. Much faster than the TT with 5 minutes. So, the loading rate of the NetUSBee is not the major problem on the TT, the low speed comes from the poor 68...

Guillaume, I feel your pain, but just to be fair to NetSurf it has to be said that it is actually pretty fast. It's just that it does so much more than any other Atari browser (particularly with Javascript on) that any kind of comparison is unfair and doesn't make much sense. Even on my FireBee I co...

Re: PH Gmap - Google maps, Street View, Routes, GPX & more

Does your application register with the AV server by sending the AV_PROTOKOLL message? If not, that is probably where the problem is. You need to let the AV server know that you support and/or use quoted filenames. Yes, it does. And I assume you've read section 15.1.1 "AV protocol, Quoting in&...

v1.29 is on your FireBee MiNT setup. You got it together with your FireBee.

Yep. And there's even a nifty application to switch between the two so you don't have to edit config files.

But it says the features are between 1.27 & 1.29 8O :roll: ..... so why is it called 1.50 ??

It would have been quite confusing to call it 1.28, since it was released about 15 years after 1.29 :)
And wasn't TOS 3.x released before TOS 2.x?

A couple of comments: Thing, at least version 1.29, supports LFN, but only up to 32 characters long. Version 1.50 was since released from the GPL'd sources but it doesn't run on my Firebee so I don't use it.

You can avoid the call to srtcpy with:

*s = '\0';

And don't forget to check the return value of the strrchr call.
