Re: Request for ideas: How to allow 'retryable' OPEN/CLOSE in QDOS/SMSQE

Thanks Marcel!

Yes, that was the conclusion I was coming to :-)

I can let that one go and focus on completing the re-coding of the driver for the time being.

Re: Request for ideas: How to allow 'retryable' OPEN/CLOSE in QDOS/SMSQE

Ah! I misunderstood!

Ok. Well the 'close/add a schedulers call to complete' scenario would at least take care of the NETO_x on the last packet.

I may need to simply accept a compromise on the support for FSERVE client use on the emulated QL/QLUB.

Thanks again, Tobi!

Re: Request for ideas: How to allow 'retryable' OPEN/CLOSE in QDOS/SMSQE

Thank you Tobias! The paragraph you refer to in the Guide for CLOSE does indicate a sensible way forward, though I'll have to investigate some more to understand how I can leverage this approach to effectively suspend the current job who asked for the CLOSE from within the driver's CLOSE routine its...

Re: Hello from Qview Stu

Hi Stu! For what it's worth, my first stabs at the normal QL keyboard after using a PC keyboard connected to another QL equipped with your lovely SuperHermes IPC replacement invariably result in typos and struggling to find Backspace et-al !!! So, no, I'm not laughing (well, maybe a little, but only...

Request for ideas: How to allow 'retryable' OPEN/CLOSE in QDOS/SMSQE

Hi QDOS gurus! I'm about 90% complete in (re) coding the NET and FSERVE drivers to work alongside the 'Message Queue server' that drives the QLUB Adapter and still have one fundamental design item to overcome to fully support the original drivers. I can partially workaround the isaue with a cludgey ...

Re: Microdrive data line format

Hi Alex! Just wanted to say how impressed I am with your project and its aims - I myself am in the process of completing a microcontroller-based project and it is interesting to compare the different approaches! Once the 'QLUB adapter' software I am still working on is brought to a more complete sta...

Re: QLUB Adapter - Initial Release...

Hi Chris! Right, that's clear now. When using Minerva, you are hitting the serio IO bug, but when using MG/JS, the QL is simply not accepting the packets from the QLUB - hence responding as expected to Break. Given that, one might expect that even once you update your Minerva image to v1.98 a1 - cor...

Re: QLUB Adapter - Initial Release...

Hi again Chris OK, so just to be clear, the receiving QL (when sending from the QLUB) continues to 'hang' whether you evoke either the LBYTEs or the 'manual' approach outlined? Can you CTRL-Space/Break to regain control of the QL, or is it really 'hung'? Happy to arrange (via PM) a remote session to...

Re: QLUB Adapter - Initial Release...

Hi Chris Glad you're persevering with the QLUB! If the Minerva 1.98 (serio) I/O bug is to blame for this behaviour, then you can expect the QL itself to hang as you report. I'm 99% sure that that is the issue you are seeing. To fully validate this, you could simply try a method other than LBYTES to ...
