Aranym and Extendos under OSX

Postby Koriander » Tue Jul 25, 2017 9:34 pm

Hi,

i've tried to setup Extendos CDROM-Driver with no luck and need help.
My config in Aranym:

[IDE1]
Present = Yes
IsCDROM = Yes
ByteSwap = No
ReadOnly = No
Path = /dev/disk6
Cylinders = 0
Heads = 0
SectorsPerTrack = 0
ModelName = Optical

[CDROMS]
Z = 0

When i start the Extendos 4.10 Installer it will find a CD-Rom on IDE1, but it's greyed out and setup button doesn't exist, only for IDE2..7 up.

sry a bit late

I don't know ExtenDOS, but it might help to set the CHS values in your config file to eg.:

Cylinders = 16
Heads = 16
SectorsPerTrack = 63

Also, when using EmuTOS, you should be able to access it without a special CDROM driver (EmuTOS has a builtin XHDI driver, which can use the XHDI Native Feature of Aranym).

Another reason of failure might be that you just don't have the permissions to access /dev/disk6 directly.
