Re: Project announcement: libcmini

Just wanted to pop in and express my gratitude for libcmini. I'm using it for the ScummVM port, at first with Vincents gcc-4.6.4 and now with ThorstenOtto's gcc-9.3.1 It really makes a difference bringing down the size of the executable. (Also a big thank you for supplying Mac builds of your newer ...

Re: Atari STE: Drive A: diplays files with cryptic extensions

It's hard, however, to come up with a theory why pull-up resistors, the DMA chip, etc. would only ever affect the file extension. It does not. If you read the first post it clearly says that file contents is corrupted too. I find that hard to believe either. It appears the number of directory entri...

Re: We're back (ish)

Thank you for all your work to keep the forum up!

P.S.: my personal experience with phpbb is to keep away from extensions that aren't part of the official distribution and are not absolutely needed.

Re: Quarantine and un-useful project

mfro, could you please describe how you have nfs set up? Are you running the NFS server on Linux? Is it V2? Is it possible you could share your NFS.xif and the mount command you run on the Atari?

Re: Project announcement: libcmini

Nope. it doesn't. The gcc 4.6.4 from my site has the patches applied (originally found in Peylow's branch] ), but i would still consider that patches experimental. I've tested it with my own build as well and the advertised speed improvement (+ a little slimmer in size) is indeed there. Not usable ...

Re: Automatically start ssh daemon under Mint

My sshd (6.4p1) does not understand the -r switch (just as Linux sshd's do). What is it?
I run sshd through bash, anyway.

P.S.: oops, it does. But not mentioned anywhere, neither in man page nor in usage help?

Re: Texel sources available

That pushes a byte on the stack, then pops a word. The 68k decreases the SP by 2 when pushing a byte on the stack, so this is essentially the same as shift left by 8. However, iirc this gives problems when run on coldfire. At least, for Pure-C, i'm using a patched version of pcstdlib.lib. Just theo...

I do not know of a program that does this (maybe others?).

No, you should be able to safely include osbind.h only and call GEMDOS as usual. I do this even for programs with even less C library, not even libcmini.
