I have a small home network comprising RiscPC, WindowsXP PC, WindowsXP Laptop, HP LaserJet printer. The Laptop can be connected by wireless or cable (as 2 different entities), the others connect by cable to the 4-port D-Link router. I use LanMan98 v2.00, SmbServer v0.08, UniServer v3.2 and RemotePrinterFS v1.04 to pass data amongst the networked components.
I have now acquired a MacBook running Snow Leopard for use by my wife, and have connected it to the network by wireless (Mac Airport). I.... read more

Hi All I'm using VRPC SE on a Windows XP Prof laptop, and there doesn't seem to be any sound on the RISC OS side. It's OK on the PC side, and I *think* I've had sound on the RISC OS side - well, I'd have thought I'd have noticed before if there were no sound.
I've check the Tools->Audio tab and it shows sounds as enabled.
Any other things I can check, please? The sound on the PC side seems OK, e.g. I was using BBC's listen again last night.
Any suggestions woul.... read more

I have recently changed my PC machine but now, despite doing what I think is the same setup, I find that the XP box won't always be able to open directories on the RPC. If I want to view say, a particular image, I can move that to a directory with less files in it and XP can then see that file. I am also having problems with browsers on the XP box. I use the same set of pages on all my browsers, Fresco and Oregano here, Netscape, Firefox, Opera and IE on the PC but only one, Opera can negoti.... read more

I am not sure if this is the right place to post this.
I am trying to catalogue a directory of files / directories from assembler so as i get a dump of names to memory and not to the screen.
Everything a have read or tried seems to dump to the screen emulating BASIC's *CAT.
I would be very grateful if any one could post a solution and or email me.
Thanks, Greg

I have recently upgraded a machine from RISC OS 3.70 to 4.02. This has mostly been ok except that if I open a window with !ZAP 1.40 in it the hour glass comes on and stays on! Does any body know what this is? Alan

I've been asked to add support for these to a program.
I don't have Select. I'd like to know the sprite type used and layout of the alpha channel data (b24-31 0=transparent, 255 solid?).
Should I be dipped in brown sugar and baked in an Xmas pud for even having the temerity to ask? Rob.

Hi.
Hope someone can help.
I've got a Risc PC with RISC OS 3.70 which makes no reference to CD ROMS at all. CDFS is not available, *status has nothing with CD in it and *help makes no mention either of anything with CD in it (eg *help cd.).
I currently don't have one attached at the moment, but will be doing so soon - does this make a difference? Though I hope to connect it to an IDE Podule I originally thought it might be the motherboard, but the machine with the Cumana interface .... read more

I have connected my Iyonix to my partners PC with the correct cable, installed and setup a LAN card on her computer and use Omni on mine.
When I use F12 and then ping her computer(geecee), if it is switched on I get what look like normal timings returned, when it is off it says host is down. I say this as it probably indicates the two computers are actually connected properly.
However when I try to access her computer, a directory called john, which has sharing enabled, all I get is 'share n.... read more

!AMPlayer won't run and gives an error: Gadget tasks active Any ideas what is wrong? The only thing I've installed recently has been CDViewer (2.10 - is there a more recent version of this?).

If you're using Ghoulnet for web hosting or forwarding check your domain's who is with Nominet UK. Last year they charged me a renewal fee and then didn't pay Nominet UK. This came to light when I rehosted the site with another company. Fortunately noone had nicked the DN in the mean time.

There should be some information on this, but I cannot find it. Not in the PRM, not in google. Must be looking in the wrong places...
Anyway, my SpamStamp program is an absolute that does some thingies. Of course, a lot of things can go wrong, so sometimes it needs to abort with an error.
The question is simple really. How do I do that? The PRM seems to say 'return with OS_GenerateError' but if I do that, the error isn't shown to the user, which is kind of not so handy. So my code to.... read more
