Re: Keycodes file for Windows with latest code?

Does that make sense? It does. I found that in recent Windows and Linux builds swap_opt_cmd defaults to true, thus interfering with using keycodes files. This was not so in older builds. I hope to convince kanjitalk755 that this change should be reversed, at least when a keycodes file is used. Than...

Re: Keycodes file for Windows with latest code?

Another couple of questions: 1. Do you have in the prefs (configuration) file an entry swap_opt_cmd ? (The prefs file will probably be named .basilisk_ii_prefs in your Home directory.) 2. If yes, is it set to true or false ? 3. If no, can you add that line and see how BasiliskII behaves with either...

Re: Seg fault when starting from Cmd Line remotely

You just need to run export DISPLAY=:id# in your ssh session and programs run will run on the remote display. A quick example:

Code: Select all

maythux@maythuxPC:~$ ssh testSSH@myServer
maythux@maythuxPC:~$ export DISPLAY=:0
maythux@maythuxPC:~$ gedit
Now gedit will run on the user named testSSH display

Re: A super PowerBook 550c for $99.00

Looks pretty good to me.... Have you found a way to get the integrated camera to do anything? I'd guess not, since BII can't use USB.

Re: Easy Install on a Raspberry Pi

Since my Chromebook project is pretty much done I revisited this one. Reformatted my SD card and ran the script again. Works flawlessly with sound. The only limitation running without X windows is that 1024x768 and 16-bit color seems to be the max I could get with SDL2. Only 640x480 works at 32-bit ...

1. Which OS, which Linux distro, runs on your Chromebook?

2. For compiling your BasiliskII, did you use source from kanjitalk755 from before or after 7 February 2021?
64-bit Debian 10.9 “Buster” netinst with non-free firmware.

After… kanjitalk755 git cloned on June 16.

Re: A super PowerBook 550c for $99.00

Added the latest google-chrome installation to the script.

Works very fast under Debian but is, unfortunately, outside of BasiliskII. Small price to pay I'd say... better than running Classilla and older browsers.
