Hi All, Anybody playing with Debian Linux on a RPC at the moment? I can't get the installer to recognise my Cumana 2 Scsi card (and therefore the attached drive). RISC OS 4 can see the drive and I wouldn't have expected to have to provide command line arguments to Linloader to recognise the card.
On a more specific RPC issue, with the scsi hdd plugged in, the IDE CDROM takes upto 30 seconds to access a CDROM on first boot. Without the scsi hdd, first access time is normal, ie almos.... read more

I am working on C/C++ on Linux platform. I want to know that how can we make a s/w so flexible that when an user enters an expression(may be conditional expression) at run time, the compiler can evaluate that expression and can corelate the local variables with global variables.So basically how can we design a parser for that.

I got a nice big pile of Archies from Mike H. this weekend, and I just got around to poking them for signs of life. The one I wanted mostly was an unmolested dual-floppy A310.
It seems to be working fine, but on installing the Arthur ROM set, I get Naff RTC Month or a similar error. Since the machine appears to be booting up I assume the ROMs are all okay, BASIC and BASIC Editor work correctly, but I can't start the desktop.

Is there away of talking to a 3G modem with WindowsXP - so I can get replies to AT commands? The idea is to try and replicate it with an 'Iyonix' RO5.

My computer is a RiscPC with RISC OS Adjust 4.39.

Trying to get either NetSurf or Firefox running on my BB both complained about Acorn URI missing. A link on the Netsurf website points to sudden recoil.org, which has been down for more than a year now.
I doubt the one hidden away somewhere in my A4000 would do but seem unable to source it on the net.
Any hints? patric

A few days ago, I had my RiscStation networked to my PC using !Samba and made a backup of all my important files from my RiscStation and RiscPC hard drives onto the PC.
I don't really use the RiscStation any more and am planning to use VirtualAcorn until I buy my next native Acorn machine, so I thought it would be a sensible idea to give it a spring clean before passing it on to a new home.
I successfully reformatted the HD using Simtec's !IDETool supplied with the machine, and reinstall.... read more

I was just looking round Farnell's website when Netsurf v2.5 crashed on me.
I tried to file a bug report but it tells me I cannot attach a file larger than 250k.
Can I help it if it creates a logfile which is 440k? What next kind sirs? -- Midlands Midsummer Mug show, for all things RISC OS, July 10th 2010.

Hi, My Monitor wouldn't turn on this morning. Well it turned on but the screen remained blank.It's a CTX Ultra. Was OK last night and nothing was altered from shutdown to start up this morning. For the last few days an odd occurrence was the whole screen being sucked in slightly and then back to normal over a second or two. Is it RIP do you reckon? Currently using an old but good AKF85. on 1152 X 864.
Regards, Dave.

Although an Argo/ Freedom user, I am now using Netfetch+ Messenger Pro and Oregano 1 or 2 from a Risk PC RO 3.7 platform via a LAN and ADSL router, the latter logging onto the internet service provider.
How can I have browser amd eMail access without running Voyager? 1. Without starting Messanger or Voyager, Oregano 1 or 2 fails to access the internet. When Voyager is started, either Oregano is able to browse the net OK.
2. When Messanger is loaded without Voyager, Netfetch cannot download eMail.... read more

Forgive my total ignorance in this area, I wish to coonect an Iyonix via its 100baseT port and via a 4-port 100baseT router to a pc.
I now have all the above. I have the Iyonix correctly connected to the router, that all works, I can get the Iyonix onto the internet.
What I don't know about is how to configure and use a network connection when I connect a PC to one of the remaining 3 100baseT ports of the router. WinXP home, I think should be able to figure something out, but I do not know .... read more

I've been trying to get hold of Sunfish without any success - both http://www.cp15.org/ and http://www.alexwaugh.com/ seem to be non-operational.

Hi, Way back when I was kid, I cut my teeth on computing first on a BBC B and later an Acorn Archimedes A3000. Ive recently been feeling very nostalgic for the old days (I think being a Windows user will do that to anyone over time!) and went on Ebay to pick up an A3000 and BBC B Model B.
I was wondering if anyone could recommend me to online shops that would sell cables that would allow me to hook these computers up to a SCART TV, or better yet, A Commodore 1084S monitor? I know there are schem.... read more
