Re: SMBFS / SMBMOUNTER Bug

If I also have a VNC window open to the same remote machine and then merely move the mouse cursor, the copying comes back to life.


This sounds like the remote machine has gone into some kind of standby which stops network traffic. By waking it up the network traffic is resumed.

That's the only purpose of the program. Why do you run it if you want to turn it off?

Expected (3.1) behavior:
A dialog window appears asking for a retry, canceling from that allows the script to continue.


That's not true. A requester only appears if you try to access a non-existing assign.

For a misspelled assign command you get an error message in the console window and a failure return code (20). The script then ends or continues depending on the current FailAt value.

Re: Library communication port

You could add private volume fields to your library base. The mixer would write the new volume values into these fields and the next time an AHI program issues a sound command the driver can check the volume fields and insert new volume commands into the command stream if needed.

I have a library which can be opened by one program only because it gains exclusive access over hardware.


You would normally not implement this via OpenLibrary/CloseLibrary.

You would rather allow the library to be opened by everybody. The library would have a gain_access and a release_access function. The gain_access function grants exclusive access for the first caller and fails for any successive caller until the first caller calls release_access.

For those callers where gain_access fails it could have a third function to supply data to the first caller.

How you implement this internally is up to you. For example the gain_access function could spawn a background process which listens to a message port. The supply_data function would then send the data to the port.

At that point I was able to ping the WinUAE gateway but not the DNS IP's.


WinUAE's built-in NAT router does not supprt ICMP. This means that Ping, Traceroute and similar utilities won't work.

But normal network traffic should work. So if your laptop is connected to the internet just try to open https://www.google.com in a web browser. Or http://www.amiga-news.de if SSL is not working yet.

Re: Getting into ZIP JAR files?
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk



RP9 ist not JAR. Both JAR and RP9 are ZIP.

A JAR is a ZIP containing Java classes.
A RP9 is a ZIP which contains files used for emulation.

Re: How to use Amiga4000T OS3.9 with no startup reboots

I think that Cloanto's 3.X ROM would remove the need for a reset to run OS 3.9.

You can trigger GM_RENDER when needed. Either use RefreshGList or DoMethod.

But when i run it from workbench, then while it all runs fine too, it also bring me some empty window from IconX, which i want to hide.


1) you don't need the script bit if you use IconX

2) add WINDOW=NIL: to the tool types.

Re: NAS (with RAID capabilities)
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk



I think what you are looking for is JBOD. It's not a RAID but just concatenates all drives into one big volume. Every HDD case with RAID functionality should be able to do this. Just make sure that the description mentions it.

You should be aware that without any redundancy, if one of the drives dies the whole array will be lost. So better make backups.

Re: timemeasure function give 0ms ?
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk



Probably because your time stamp calculation overflows. Your GetTimeStamp() function always returns -1.

It works better if you use (tNow.tv_sec % 86400), but might give wrong results around midnight.

Re: Waiting a SystemTags() for terminating?
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


No, that's not true. SystemTags() definitely is syncronous unless you set SYS_Async to TRUE.

Maybe the program you run as mycommand detaches itself from the shell. Then you'll have a hard time to wait for its end.

A normal program which blocks the shell until it is finished will also let SystemTags block until the program returns.

Re: Passing a variable to function by reference
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk



For IDOS->Printf %d is a 16 bit integer, but the compiler puts a 32 bit integer on the parameter, so you print only the upper half of the 32 bits which is always zero for numbers below 65536. You have to use %ld to print it properly.

You should consequently use either printf or Printf everywhere, but don't mix them. You only get confused like in this case.

Re: Pointer API

Not too shy to talk



No and no. The function is not in intuition.library and it is not relative to a window.

You can send a IECLASS_NEWPOINTERPOS event to input.device to move the mouse pointer to a given position in the screen.

Re: ILBM or IFF
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk



I would say the opposite.

First of all do not use .lbm. This is from stupid M$-DOS crowd who have to pack everyting into three letters. It has no meaing for an Amiga person except for a bad smell.

.ilbm would be most meaningful but is unusual.

.iff is used by most programs and people, although it does not uniquely identify a picture file.

If Setting is always 0 or 1 you could use 1-Setting to swap it.

Length + 1 - Setting makes more sense anyway IMHO because it needs to translate between string and number only once.

Re: Sharing data with host system with Amiga Forever & AmigaOS 4.1
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


FTPMount is not completely stable and it lacks some features needed to be a fully functional drive. You can copy files forth and back but if you try for example to pack or unpack an LHA archive which is stored on the FTP share, it will fail sooner or later. You have to copy it to the Amiga before you unpack it or you have to create it on the Amiga and then copy it to the FTP share.

The IP address to use is the one of the host machine. There is only one. Check ipconfig output.

The best solution still is an external NAS box which can be accessed from AmigaOS and Windows.

The previous version of SMBFS works completely stable with Unix or BSD based operating systems.

The latest version works with Windows but is unstable.

Re: 680x0 asembler problems.

@LiveForIt

Each SendIO has to be complemented by a WaitIO.

The sequence is either

DoIo()

or

SendIO()
WaitIO()

or

SendIO()
Wait() or WaitPort()
WaitIO()


WaitIO will not wait if the request is already finished, but it has to be called anyway to clean up the request before it can be reused.
