  1. Not sure if this is a bug in SpartaDOS 3 or maybe a misconfiguration (but I have no idea how to fix it in the latter case), but here is what I stumbled upon some day: I have a binary program which consists of several init segments and one run segment. This program loads fine and works under DOS 2.5, DOS XL 2.30, MyDOS 4.55p, BW-DOS 1.30 and, last but not least, SpartaDOS X. But with SpartaDOS 3.2d, 3.2g and 3.3a there is only a less or more spectacular crash during loading. I have found out that this crash occurs, because after the second init segment SpartaDOS 3 thinks that the loading is finished, thus (since the run vector has not yet been set at this point) making a call to the "beginning of the program", i.e. the first init segment, which at this time is of course long non-existing. Now the second init segment opens and parses a configuration file. And this - particularly the OPEN call - causes all this confusion. The file does not even have to exist: it is enough to make an OPEN 4,"D:FOO.BAR":CLOSE in an init segment to trigger this problem. If this is not fixable in a simple manner (like by changing a default parameter in SpartaDOS binary), I would say that this looks like a flaw disqualifying SpartaDOS 3 as a DOS. For opening a file during loading a binary is to my knowledge in no way a forbidden operation. And even DOS 2.5 tolerates this well.
  2. Back in the mid 80's... I wrote my own SpartaDOS disk directory sorting utility out of sheer necessity having some fairly large drives and dirs on my BBS system. While playing with this program the other night, I accidentally sorted a DOS 2 disk... oops. My brute force sorter trashed the disk as I suspected it would. So I need to be able to detect a SpartaDOS disk before sorting. I know the SDFS version is stored at offset $20 in sector 1 of the Sparta disk. This would be easy enough to check but I feel I need something additional. It looks like offset 8 in sector 1 = $80 on the SpartaDOS disk but I am not sure if this is definitive enough. I have checked a few different disks and so far I have only seen $80 in offset 8 on the Sparta disks. Any other ideas??
  3. The SIO2PC-USB gadget is pretty cool and if you are using it this is the place we can share our problems & discoveries! I'll start with an experience and problem and if you can answer it please do if you have had that experience and have a solution. As I familiarize myself with this using the Aspeqt program, and the 800XL w/256K & US Doubler 1050 I hope we all learn and you can share some of your hills & valleys in the use of this gadget! Problem 1: With the configuration above the last step to formatting, writing DOS and an initialization step is where it's freezing for me. This is version 1.1 of SpartaDOS and if you know what happened to the FORMAT files in the 3.2 versions I'd like to know.
  4. I was looking at past auctions on Ebay and saw one where somebody had sold an ICD SDX cartridge. It said that it also included "Cart Dumper 2.07 ROM Chip - You can pop this in replacing the SpartaDOS ROM and you have the ability to dump atari cartridge ROMS to a file." I've never heard of this rom/chip. Does anyone know anything about it and if so, has a copy of it?
  5. Hi everybody, I'm hoping somebody can help me configure Spartados x 4.48 to run with basic XL. I'm using a stock 130XE with the Super SpartaDos X cartridge I bought from Bits of the Past. My Basic XL cart is an early orange one (not basic XE). I'm using a custom config.sys that looks like this: USE OSRAM DEVICE SPARTA DEVICE SIO DEVICE ATARIDOS DEVICE ULTIME I've tried lots of other options including USE BANKED and USE SPARTA OSRAM. I've tried no using DEVICE ULTIME or DEVICE ATARIDOS and every possible combination of these. When I go to the cart I can type in a basic program all day long, but any attempt to save or load causes the drive to spin forever and the computer to lock up. Any suggestions? Anybody running a similar setup?
  6. I hope it is appropriate to post "for sale" items. Cleaning out the attic, and selling some old Atari 8-bit stuff on Ebay. I was a big Atari geek back in the day, I'd like to see this stuff go to somebody who will appreciate it, instead of the landfill. SpartaDOS X cartridge with SpartDOS Toolkit disk. www.ebay.com/itm/301844912080 Original Atari literature, lot of 5 pieces: (1200XL users guide, 1982 Atari Product Catalog, etc) http://www.ebay.com/itm/301844916921 I'm also selling some Atari ST stuff, if you are interested check out my ebay user page: http://www.ebay.com/usr/chris82369
  7. Hi, I am using the atari800 emulator on my Ubuntu machine. I own several 800's and I am an old 8biter. In the emulator I am trying to access subdirectories on H1:. I have tried dosxl and spartados. Has anyone gotten this to work? I have searched the forms and cant find anything useful. I can access the main H1: directory, but when I try to access the subdirectory, I get a write protected error. I also can not CWD to the location I want. It seems that the H1: access is limited to one level. Any help is appreciated. Thanks, Edward
