My Easymint installation ( quite new, I had it only few months and not done in it almost anything yet ) probobly got seroiusly broken and its going down even more.
First Xaaes stopped starting:viewtopic.php?f=27&t=31084
And since yesterday I have a strange keybord issue, when I start TOS all is fine, keybord works OK, but if I start MiNT ( GEM=ROM or GEM=path_to_xaaes/xaloader.prg ) its like pressing space key forever. I tried 2 different eiffels and 2 different PS/2 keyboards and its the same, so I guess no hardware issue with eiffel or keyboard.
When I set "Init step by step" during MiNT loading to maybe see some strange error message I noticed that after first 3 "Hit a key to continue" its stops asking this anymore and loads the rest in a normal ( not step by step ) mode. So it looks like after this 3 step something happens which starts pressing space key.
So the 3rd step says:
"Resident TOS Version 4.04 ( FalconTOS )
Bios bconmap() present"
And after this step, when the normal loading starts, there is:
"Initializing system components:
Core ( 14MB ) lost ( 13KB )
realloc_region: reg=0, newsize -somebunchofnumbers
realloc_region: reg is null
This system features XHDI level 1.30 ( kerinfo rejected )
This software contains strong cryptography"
and so on untill desktop loads. But is unusable because of those endless space keypressings.
Now, when I turn the Memory Protection, all the Step by Step loading goes as it should. That means that it doesnt start normal loading after 3rd step and I have to do a keypress after each step until the last one and the space key doesnt go crazy and the keyboard seems to work fine.
So it looks like someting in 4th step of MiNT loading goes mad if memory protection is off.
