BBC BASIC for Raspbian updated to v0.19a

Wed Nov 01, 2017 5:03 pm

I have updated BBCSDL, the free cross-platform version of BBC BASIC, to v0.19a. Full details of this release may be found at the BBC BASIC forum. The Raspbian edition now runs Andy Parkes' BBCEdit IDE as well as my SDLIDE, and the latter now supports debugging and profiling on the Raspberry Pi, bringing it substantially into line with the other desktop editions (Windows, Linux (x86) and Mac OS-X).

Hi,

I haven't been able to install your BBC BASIC on anything.
64-bit Debian Stretch on a laptop gave me a message box saying: "Could not initialize UDEV"
64-bit Arch showed an empty "Choose IDE" window for about 1 sec before disappearing.
Latest Raspian on Pi 1B+ replies with "Instruction non permise" to the command ./bbcsdl or sudo ./bbcsdl.
Any ideas?

BBC BASIC for SDL 2.0 requires at least a Raspberry Pi 2 and preferably a Raspberry Pi 3. Earlier models don't have a suitable CPU (as the 'illegal instruction' message indicated), sorry.

I test every release on Windows 10, Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, Mac OS 10.6 and 10.7, Raspberry Pi 3 with Stretch and Android (KitKat + Nougat). Although that covers a wide range of popular platforms obviously there are many others, and that is particularly true of Linux. It is highly likely that any specific installation problems are as a result of SDL 2.0, not BBC BASIC, so asking at a SDL forum may be helpful.

Richard.

OK, Thanks.

I'll let you know if I get it to work.

I gave up but my son got it to work using Linux Mint 32-bit in VirtualBox.
It needs to be easier to install.
I'll give it another go. It looks like it's worth the trouble.
