What's done is done. There's no point arguing my choice of programming platform at this point. If you want it to run on your Falcon (or indeed anything else), look at the serial data that SerialDisk sends (the source code is freely available) and replicate that in your programming language of choice.

Of course, the choice of programming language is entirely up to the developer. I just did not agree that C#/.net is *more* portable than plain C.

For those interested, SerialDisk now supports the following operating systems:

- Windows x64 (Tested on Windows 10)
- Linux x64 (Tested on Ubuntu 19.04)
- Linux ARM32 (Tested on a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ with Ubuntu Server 18.04.02 LTS ARMHF)
- Linux ARM64 (Tested on a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ with Ubuntu Server 18.04.02 LTS ARM64)

both with and without the .NET Core runtime installed. I'm not planning to release a Windows x86 version any time soon, but I can if there's any demand for it.

Grab it from the SerialDisk site - https://github.com/z80andrew/SerialDisk

Just downloaded and set up SerialDisk 2.5.22 and having an issue.

I setup the PC, and the program starts fine. 9600,8,N,1 with RequestToSend flow control, no compression, 512M disk. Looks like it's working OK.

I set up the ST to match the serial port settings. Starting SerialDisk I see it create the M: drive. I install the drive so I get the desktop icon fine. I open the icon and I see the two files that I have shared from my PC. If I access ANY drive after that causes the ST to give me two or three bombs.

Is there a fix for this? This program is something I would really like to get working.

My ST is a 2MB Mega ST2 with a 60MB Megafile attached and partitioned into C: and D: with TOS 1.04

You can try using a 32M disk along with

Code: Select all

M10

in your SERDISK.CFG file to rule out any issues related to disk buffer modifications or compression.

If that doesn't solve the problem, you can open an issue on the GitHub project page or send me an email (contact details on https://github.com/z80andrew/SerialDisk/wiki#contact) and I'll try to get a fix implemented.

Info that will help with troubleshooting:
- TOS version and language
- Any other drivers / applications / desktop accessories loaded in AUTO
