Pi/GEOS Alpha!

Hi, Use a class 10 MicroSD card in the Raspberry Pi 400 or any Raspberry Pi for optimum performance. BR, Hans

Pi/GEOS Alpha!

Hi, I have experimented a bit with a Pi Zero with wifi. I have installed the Raspberry Pi OS Lite on the zero, with DOSBox and both Geoworks Ensemble 2.01 and Breadbox Ensemble. 4.13. Geoworks Ensemble runs slighly faster than Breadbox Ensemble, but the BBX speed is quite okay. It seems that the full Raspberry Pi OS weighs down the performance, compared to the Lite OS. I have also noticed that DOSBox uses the old way to set up the keyboard in DOSBox, and I understand now why it does not work, be...

Hi all, The solution to the Nimbus Q problem would be to replace the NImbusQ with a new FreeType font engine which mimics the way Nimbus Q works in Geos, which makes it possible to use the FreeType fonts. This must also be done to add Unicode to Geos. Maybe we also would need a tool like Geos Font Converter to add font id:s and adapt the FreeType fonts to Geos???? This sounds like a heafty task to me, but doable. I know that Gene Anderson had similar plans in the aftermath of NewDeal and GlobalP...

Just for your knowledge, The name "Breadbox", was included in the deal when Falk bought Geos from Franks estate. There is no need to remove the name "Breadbox" for any legal reasons as Falk owns the rights to the name. What he intends to do with the name is up to Falk. BR, Hans

WLAN unter Kubuntu bricht ab

Maybe you need a repeater? The distance from your wifi router to your laptop in that particular room, might be a problem? I lived once in a flat with concrete walls with rebars in the walls, every time I closed the door to the room, my wifi connection was interrupted. It showed that the door had an aluminium film in the door working as a moisture barrier, this prevented the signal to enter the room. When I opened the door the wifi started working again. However this problem was not solved by a r...

Kodak Photo CD

Hi Jörg, I have a Kodak Photo CD, which I have not used for years, Your posting reminded me of it. Would be cool to have a Geos port of the program, but since we are only two users, I don't think it is worth the effort? BR, Hans

Breadbox Ensemble 4.13 & WebMagick & Ether ODI/PKT

The issue regarding ODI vs packet drivers, I think, are that the ODI drivers tend to be bulky and a little bit slower than Packet drivers, that is at least my experience. You can fine small and slinky packet drivers in DOS, but that is not always true, if you are unlucky, there is only ODI drivers and you need to get (packet) shims to solve it, which makes the NIC drivers big, and chewing some valuable base memory. The smallest packet driver I have found is for The ancient RealTek 8129, which is...

Pi/GEOS Alpha!

Hi Thomas, I used alternativ 2. I did also make an addition to your autoexec.bat at the C-drive. It looks like this now: @echo off c: cd ensemble if not exist geos_act.ive goto bootGeos call reset.bat :bootGeos go.bat It is a bit brutal as it does not check for any file corruption, but it is an Alpha! BR, Hans

Pi/GEOS Alpha!

Hi Thomas, I have a sad thing to tell. My GeosPi have gone corrupted. I have probably made some mistake, but can not recall what I did. I can't start Breadbox Ensemble anymore. Raspberry Pi boots into Dosbox, the Breadbox splash shows, then I get the Geos reset screen with the two buttons. I press reset, get a black screen with a mouse pointer I can move. The only way to exit is to press ctrl-alt-del, I get the screen from Geos " Reboot requested -qutting now". It seems that the Geos disk image ...

Breadbox Ensemble 4.13 & WebMagick & Ether ODI/PKT

Regarding DHCP and Geos. I have also discovered in the Global PC, that the DHCP needs a second ini-file. The ip-address of DHCP goes into the NET.INI on the GlobalPC, probably as GEOS.INI is locked during the time the GlobalPC is running. I discovered this as I was experimenting with connecting the GlobalPC through an Ethernet parallel port adapter (Xircom) and my DHCP router. I configured the GlobalPC for the Ethernet, but did not fill in the ip-address and started the GlobalPC browser. It took...

Breadbox Ensemble 4.13 & WebMagick & Ether ODI/PKT

Hi Falk, I think you are right. Besides the phone number, you also have to set a username and password. I have figured out a way to always make the configuration work every time. First, I fill in every entry in the boxes, and since I don't have a phone connection, nor a modem, I just invent a fake phone number following swedish phone number standards, 020-123456. Then I save the configuration and make a connection. Since I don't have a modem, the connection fails. After that, I go into to config...

Pi/GEOS Alpha!

Hi again, Thomas, I made the realtime clock from adafruit work! Now my Raspberry Pi works as a full fledged Geos computer. However, even if the 800x480 works quite OK, I think the 1024x600 would be a better resolution, as Geos were optimized for 800x600, as the height (600) will be the same in the 800x600 as in 1024x600. John Howards card game SpiderSolitare needs 800x600, and will not work in 800x480. I have a version in which John removed the resolution check, but the game looks a bit weird as...

Pi/GEOS Alpha!

Hi Thomas, Your first suggestion solved the problem, I changed the framebuffer width and height to 800x480, and that solved the problem. The only thing is that the splash screen with pigeos is too big. Otherwise, Geos looks very nice on my screen. The time is weird, but maybe it depends in internet connection. I have a real time clock as hardware connected to the bus in the Pi. I will look into that later on. BR, Hans

Pi/GEOS Alpha!

Now I am up and running, with the Alpha-demo, om my 7 inch raspberry pi (official 7 inch in 800x480). I am not used to use a disk image. I have used just the mounted folder in dosbox, so i feel a bit lost, but maybe I have to learn. We can take the issues one by one. I have changed the resolution in Geos to 800x480 and it works!! However, it does not fill the screenI have a black frame around the screen image. Would be cool to make it fill the entire surface of the screen. I guess I need to chan...

Zitat von »t.hass« Hi Hans Förlåt! The file I uploaded was broken (and it allready was on my build system ). I creatd a new image, uploaded it and wrote it to a SD card to verify it will work. Please note that printing is not working in this version as there is a bug in the included DOSBox version. I got it fiexed but haven't build a new deb package so far. Thomas Hi Thomas, You don't have to say förlåt, these things easily happen. Thanks, for your quick response. I have downloaded the file and...

WLAN unter Kubuntu bricht ab

Hi Jörg, I use Ubuntu 20.04 LTS on my laptop. I have installed the Teams client for Linux to be able to attend meetings in my local community association. The Teams client in Linux forced me to login to a Microsoft account, even if I just got an invitation to a Teams meeting, which is odd, considering that I don't have to do it in Windows, it is just to click the link to join the meeting. The Teams client did not work well, it also screwed up my browser connection to Teams. The only solution for...

Zitat von »t.hass« Es ist vollbracht - ich habe eine erste Version von Pi/GEOS in ein Image gepackt. Wer es einmal ausprobieren möchte, kann es einfach mit Balena Etcher auf eine Micro-SD-Karte schreiben und seinen RasPi 3/4 davon booten. Nach dem obligatorischen Vergrößern der Partition sollte Euch pigeos-config begrüßen: index.php?page=Attachment&attachmentID=726 Jetzt sind noch einige wenige aber notwendige Einstellungen zu tätigen bevor es losgehen kann: Aktivierung und Konfiguration des WL...
