SymbOS tavern
« on: 21:34, 22 April 20 »
Yahoo group is no more, and I haven't found a dedicated place to post my questions, complains and signs of wonder.


Let me inaugurate with 2 random questions maybe not so random.


 * Is it expected that Symbos (3.0) cannot handle AcmeDos partition (FAT16 formatted with CubeMDos tool IRRC)? Files and directories at root are seen. Files can by type-d. But when trying to enter the directory: "Path does not exist". Fails both in SymShell and SymCommander.


 * What are the next plans for SymbOs world?

From memory...
1. Symbos supports FAT12, 16 and 32. On sector basis.
2. Saw Prodatron on the Mittwinger meeting, let me try to remember. Guess his main topic is now Symbos and internet. Especially supporting the SF3.
You can open a SymbOS thread and ask the moderators to pin the topic. They did that before for me for FutureOS.

Thanks for the prompt reply.

You can open a SymbOS thread.


Exactly what I did (:


Regarding 1: My bad, that had nothing to do with the format. They were some old directories created with a previous version of CubeMDos allowing lowercase.

Yes, right! Now it would be great if we get it sticky, to have a good home for the topic.  :)

I'm sticky for the thread. Today's questions & requests.


  • mdr006: I managed to get SymShell started at boot (not a mystery). Now how do I force 80x25 fullscreen automatically?
  • mdr007: When using cp, the destination file is overwritten without warning. Is there an option to change this behavior?
  • mdr009: Could '*' in shell have the unix signification (matches everything regardless of extension) rather than the msdos one (matches '*. ', which was never useful for anyone in half a century)?
  • mdr008: Trying to add direct HxC device leads to Error Code 6 (Error while sector read/write). I'm using a Zaxon Variant with Firmware FF v0.9.19a and direct access works with CubeMDos.

Half there: I selected "Always use 80x25 in fullscreen" & "Use fullscreen" in preferences. Then typed "exit". Then saved the main settings (in menu).
Now it boots in 80x25, and I only have to press COPY-RETURN to switch to fullscreen with proper display speed!
