Re: RiscOS: Installing to hard drive

Thanks again DavidS. I stumbled upon 'hdparm' for Linux returns geometry for attached drives. Although it's result differed somewhat from FileCore's the results equate similarly. The drive may well be faulty from HFormat's perspective although it formats without issue under Linux and Windows. I don'...

Re: RiscOS: Installing to hard drive

I'm happy to confirm that the instructions work fine, thanks. I ended up using some tatty old 150gb and it worked first time. I'm having a little trouble with one of the drives. The 500gb is a Western Digital WD5000avvs. When formatting with !HForm I get 'Error &11AAC Drive not known. Possibly becau...

Re: RiscOS: Installing to hard drive

Hey Tide and DavidS, I hear what you are saying - there are always pros and cons - the drive will be useless on other operating systems? a large factor to many. For me I'm happy to try filecore as the drive will be dedicated to that purpose. :) I'm not too worried about the theoretical thruput as it...

Re: RiscOS: Installing to hard drive

That seems refreshingly brief and simple! Thanks DavidS! :) My hard drive is 500GB SATA pulled from a PC. Riscos does not see it as a SCSI. When I !Configure and goto Disks Riscos sees 0 SCSI drives and 1 Floppy although the first partition (FAT32) on the drive is mounted and displayed in the taskba...

RiscOS: Installing to hard drive

Hi, I tried RiscOS: It is almost unbelievably fast and performance increase from overclocking is jaw dropping. I'd like to install as much of RiscOS as is possible to a USB harddrive (not so much for speed - although that did work wonders for Raspbian - as for durability). As others have reported th...

BBC Basic

Hi,

How do I tell what line an error is generated at? Presently it says 'Syntax error' or similar but no line number is mentioned. Makes debugging a lot more fun but - there must be a simpler way?

Re: Introduce yourself!

Hi, my name is Mark. 48 years old now and learning to program again after being diagnosed with sclerosis of the brainbox :( - so it's a great relief to get back to where I started with BBC Basic because it does make almost absolute sense :D .
