Probably didn't check the docs? That package pretty much is GFA on steroids and it needs MiNT and a good desktop like Thing + AV Server. If you want to dabble in GFA in plain old TOS, you need the original GFA Editor package. You can however use the updated compiler, linker, and library.

Same here, I couldn't do much either with it ;)
Also didn't read the doc's but I also don't use mint or alike.
Still use te old org. TOS. But good tip is that I can use the newer
compiler and libraries :)

Yes, its even possible to build binaries for the FireBee on an older system. Although I have not made a full proper release, there is a preliminary release of the this library on my web page.

Its here: http://userpages.bright.net/~gfabasic/f ... alibcf.zip
The compiler in this archive is for the FireBee.

You will need the compiler and linker from this archive if you don't have a FireBee:
Grab this: http://userpages.bright.net/~gfabasic/f ... a_comp.zip

I'm sorry about the pages, its a mess and needs cleaned up some day. :wink:

cheers can use the editor under geneva just cant test it :( but use the gfa shell to start the linker/compiler not ideal but works well enough for the level of print "hello world" that im at suppose i should just install a boot manager so i can easily choose between single tasking and geneva or try and install mint in an ide drive image file unless some else has already done and can give me link to download it ;)

I don't know. Thing Desktop has an AV server built in. I think you can get a stand alone AV server, but where I don't know. It is a message protocol GEM apps can use to interact with the desktop. Tell the desktop to start an app, view a file, open a dir window, and much more.

Teradesk is also an AV server and much more lightweight than Thing.
