Kernel log

Andy, FYI I'm emailing you @visopsys.org with the ( zipped ) Kernel.log from that session on the old Dell. Apparently the PM system on this board does not allow attachments (or I couldn't find the option...) . CU later, cheers Edit : resent as plain text, reason: your receiving email server does not...

Re: 4K sectored disks? and, national keyboard support?

I'm back... with good news (so-so) and bad news. Re: keyboard/mouse. Last night it occurred to me that the problems we had could be caused by the KVM switch to which the test machine is attached. Indeed attaching the peripherals directly to the computer fixed mouse and keyboard. I guess this is the ...

Visopsys/Part logic on DELL Dimension : no go :(

Andy, I have tried the OS on that old Dell (Intel chipset, P!!!), unfortunately it did not quite work as designed (or at least, expected...) But, first remark, by Jove, how does one pause the minuscule screen display during hardware enumeration ? Neither scroll-lock nor pause had any effect, and the...

Re: 4K sectored disks? and, national keyboard support?

Ahh, sorry. Only UHCI support is basically complete, and I've started to add EHCI support, but it's really only a stub in the released version. :oops: Makes sense then ! No problem, keep the good work going... For completeness I'll try eventually on an old DELL 'puter having UHCI/EHCI ( Via brand a...

Re: 4K sectored disks? and, national keyboard support?

I am going to test my external USB-attached drive. :=) Follow-up : Visopsys failed to identify and mount the device, unfortunately. Neither when it was attached before booting the system up, nor on hot-plugging it. No error reported, no attempt to access the unit physically (AFAICT), no nothing :=(...

Re: 4K sectored disks? and, national keyboard support?

You're right, the floppy disk version doesn't have the 'keymap' program (or the alternate keymap files). Unfortunately it's a matter of space on the disk! Oh, too bad... 512-byte sectors are not hard-coded into the system, in general, but I've never had access to a non-512 internal disk for testing...

4K sectored disks? and, national keyboard support?

Hi! New to visopsys/partition logic, I tried the latest (floppy disk) version. Very much impressed at the quality of this single-man IIUW piece of work ! And here are 2 questions : 1. Couldn't change keyboard layout, was the option omitted (again, floppy version) ? If there's room enough left on the...
