Re: DOS & BBS apps

Delirium: looks like good progress..... I personally haven't got around to trying Qemu yet, but i got as far as installing/running my "Remote Access BBS (RA)" simply using Dosbox, although my BBS install is purely for a local setup for now...I realise the headaches ahead to connect it onto the web f...

SD card speed - important???

Hi All, Just wondering if a faster SDcard will make any NOTICABLE difference with overall performance of R-pi ???? I don't know how fast the R-pi can access the SDcard, and it might be pointless to buy an expensive high-speed SDcard if R-pi simply can't access it quickly enough... When shopping arou...

Can't copy a large file within Rpi desktop

Hi All, (FYI: I'm running the "B version" R-pi) I have successfully installed the R-pi distro on a few different SDcards (class 10), being 8,16 & 32gb in size, then doing a resize afterwards to make FULL use of the card to store movies etc.... I was trying to copy a 1.5gb movie file (.avi) into the ...

How to Backup your SDcard

Hi All, I've created a newbies version of "How to backup your R-Pi SD card", to make it clear & simple for all of us ;-). For my example, I'm using Windows7 & "Win32DiskImager" for this example, but i'm sure it's basically the same for the linux version. Ok, so you have your Raspberry Pi distro runn...

Re: DOS & BBS apps

From my readings, the reason many DOS appz don't run is because dosbox isn't a 100% dos environment. I believe many appz terminate due to a few things not being detected such as memory, video/display paging etc, but these apps don't use soundcards or advanced video paging techniques etc. I would hav...

DOS & BBS apps

Hi All, I've recently been playing with DosBox and trying my old (DOS) BBS program on a pi, seems to be working well (so far) although only with local sysop logins. While playing with various DOS appz, i noticed many programs don't run, whether they're games or gui/menu's etc etc. Is there anything ...

Re: Introduce yourself!

Hi All, Yet another Pi-noob getting involved with some Pi projects of sorts as i learn more about them. ;-) I'm into hardware, embedded (from a pic/picaxe background) and also retro designs in hardware or software. Getting my old DOS BBS running on a pi has been my recent project/hobby/timewaster of...
