I need help with getting a new computer for PC/GEOS internet access

You write that you have a virtual machine with Windows 98? What is the primary operating system on the virtual machine? There is a new version of DOSBox called DOSBox Staging, works similar to DOSBox Megabuild, maybe except for the printer support? I have managed to connect.Geos to internet using the modem emulation in DOSBox Staging. I use Ubuntu, but it should work in Windows.and Mac, too, as DOSBox Staging is available for Windows, Mac and Linux. Maybe that is something for you? Hans

I need help with getting a new computer for PC/GEOS internet access

Hi Brett, I can try to help you out, but I don't think the Pi/Geos for the moment is a good idea, as it is in an Alpha state. I have experienced some crashes, and they are a bit tricky to fix for an ordinary user, but I have managed to fix them. In general you will only need a configured MicroSD card. It is important to setup the MicroSD card on the same type of the Raspberry Pi, (RPi) which it is to be used, like for example if you set it up on a Raspberry Pi 3, it should be used on a RPi 3, li...

PC-GEOS-Sommertreffen vom 22. bis 25. Juli 2021 in Hamburg

I can not attend, as I am busy with handling an estate during these days. And then we also have the pandemic. I will get my second Pfizer/Biontech jab on next Tuesday. Hopefully, everything will be set to the Syhra meeting. Hans

DOSBox Netzwerkzugriff

I have made the modem setup work as presented earlier in this article by Thomas Hass. It works in the DOSBox Staging. It does not work in regular DOSBox. If you use linux, like I do, you have to change the port mapping above 1023, as port numbers below 1024 will only be availabke after root access. My choice is port 2323. There is also a phonebook in DOSBox Staging which maps a phone number to an ip-address. The browsing works, but is a bit slow. BR, Hans

VESA 8:5 modes in DOSBox (MB6)

Would be cool to have support for the wide format 848x480 64k color in Geos, as this mode is supported in S3 Trio in DOSBox. BR, Hans

VESA 8:5 modes in DOSBox (MB6)

I recommend VBETEST in SciTech Display Doctor, DOS version 6.53, to check and troubleshoot video modes in DOSBox. The software lists and also contains test samples of video modes. Do a web search for SciTech Display Doctor, and you will find it. The DOS version is free to use. BR, Hans

Acrobat Reader 1.0

The PDF Reader in Geos is crash prone, but also more useable than the Acrobat Reader 1.0 for DOS. Here is the link: http://geos-infobase.de/KATTER/PROGRAMM/PDFView.zip 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...

Projekt Free german BlueWay.Softworks Ensemble 2022

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!

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 ...
