CosmosEx and VanillaMint

Postby mgarnett » Thu Jul 04, 2019 9:11 pm

Hi All,

Apologies if this is a dumb question.

I have been successfully using CosmosEx in single TOS for a couple of years now. However, now I want to explore using multi-tasking operating systems and so decided to install VanillaMint on my TT (I am using the ACSI CosmosEx).

After installing VM, I can still access the drives I have on the internal SD card, however, I can no longer access the shared drive or the configuration drive. When I open the FreeMint folder on the desktop, I can see folders have been created for those two drives, but attempting to access them produces a path not found error.

Both my CE_DD and CE_Sting Program’s are still in the auto folder and run successfully on boot.

I am assuming I need to add the eth0 interface into a configuration file somewhere in VM, but I have no idea where.

Is anybody able to help?

Cheers

Mark

I don't know the CE driver work, but if it works by hooking into the GEMDOS trap you might have to run CE_DD after MiNT in the autofolder, as MiNT does not call the old TOS GEMDOS.

I recommend upgrading the kernel to the latest from GitHub, I think they fixed some gemdos compatibility recently which solved some of my problems.

In that case not only the kernel, but all kernel modules (*.km, *.xdd, *.xfs, *.xif) must be updated too.

Thank you for the help, I have updated the CosmosEx device and also tried running CE_DD after VM in the Auto folder, but neither solved the problem, I still cannot access the network or configuration drive in VM. As soon as I remove VM from Auto and reboot to regular TOS, everything works fine, just not when VM is running.

Any other ideas?

If VM does not work, is there a different multitasking operating system that I can use that works OK with CosmosEX?

Thanks

Mark

Trouble with MagiC and FreeMiNT is that they replace GEMDOS. Which CE_DD is bending to its needs. It's on the TODO list but as usual, spare time is the issue here.

There is this build flag, -DOLDTOSFS, which builds a Mint Kernel using the GEMDOS fs instead of the Mint own FAT driver maybe that could help ?
This flag is activated in the minthat Freemint Kernel Config that the Gemdos Hardrive of Hatari works.

There is a mint kernel build with this flag here:

( minthat inside the auto folder)
STMint, try Unix on your 68000 Atari http://subsole.org/st_mint

I'd say that -DOLDTOSFS is not guaranteed not to build a kernel that will blow your Atari to pieces. Probably noone used it for years, and I would be supprised if it would compile at all.

So there is still no support for Shared drive in Magic?

When I open Shared or Config drive in Magic, I see “install.app” (23KB) but it can not be opened or copied!

Will Geneva work with Cosmosex Shared drive?

This is because FreeMiNT/MagiC overwrites GEMDOS, on which the shared functionality heavily depends.

AFAIK Geneva could work because it focuses on multitasking only, without affecting file system.

I can confirm Geneva works with CosmosEx in all respects rather well.
