TIPI Usage and Support

Recommended Posts

Not attacking TIPI just saying what is happening.

I go to CALL TIPI put in any path into DSK1 or DSK2 or DSK3 or DSK4 and that path only responds to TIPI. or DSK0. and ignores the path.

When I do a CALL TIPI again the path I put in is not . (period)

If I know squat about doing a LOG I would post it. Pretend I am not a expert on TIPI but as a new user of one.

You need to re-read your messages above then.  

 

https://github.com/jedimatt42/tipi/wiki/Troubleshooting describes how to check the log files

 

You need to post photos of your "crashes" if you want help.

 

You need to post logs of the activities that caused these "crashes" in the tipi.log you can cut and paste from the interface or ssh if that's what you are using. 

 

Post a photo of the directories in the web interface that you are trying to map to DSK1  You don't need a trailing period in the mapping. You can see in my photo the TIPI.FC folder is mapped with just FC in DSK1 map. If the folder was TIPI.GAMES.EA5 then it would GAMES.EA5 in the map

Rich,

 

I use a Windows program WinSCP available at https://winscp.net to log into the TIPI for log file access and being able to copy/cut/paste information.  You will need to identify the IP address for your TIPI to use WinSCP.  The Hostname should be something like 192.168.1.xx and use a port number of 22.  Username will be tipi, and password will be tipi.

 

There will be log files when you login.  I'm not sure if it defaults to the log path, or if you have to find it.  My path is at /var/log/tipi/

 

The log file tipi.log will be your most recent set of log files.  Doubleclick and scroll to the end of that log file for the most recent information added to the file.  Things will be time and date stamped by whatever timezone the tipi is currently configured.  You might be able to interpret from the log files what is happening yourself from the log file or you may need to just copy (or portion of) the file and post.

 

The log entries for a catalog function will be a bit strange, so make sure you scroll back far enough by date/time to when the actual command(s) were entered as depending upon how many files and directories, and then the PI.CONFIG setting for display order, may make things a bit confusing for the novice.

 

What I can tell you is that an extended basic program with a slight modification for a new type of file (DIRECTORY) as type 6, I typed in from what I believe was the TI Disk controller manual.

I would really like to use TIPI to get the tests done on RXB 2020 C and release it.

Ok I got on his machine and he is able to use DSK1 maps now..  So the program loads fine from DSK1. but in the program it is trying to load pages from a file in that folder and is erroring. We looked at the log file and his routine in RXB to load pages into SAMS isn't even hitting the TIPI .. it's erroring without any log entries in the TIPI side.. Rich is going to post the assembly in another message if anyone can help there, I'm pretty useless in assembly :)

We got a FILE ERROR at 150 and here is the RXB program:

100 ! RXB SAMS LOADER DEMO
110 ! NO ASSEMBLY USED
120 ! PAGE 16 TO 36 USED
130 FOR A=1 TO 20
140 CALL SAMS(2,A+16)
150 CALL PLOAD(2,"DSK1.SCRN"&STR$(A))
160 CALL MOVES("RV",2079,8192,0)
170 NEXT A
180 FOR A=1 TO 20
190 CALL SAMS(2,A+16)
200 CALL MOVES("RV",2079,8192,0)
210 NEXT A
220 GOTO 180

140 sets SAMS page number at >2000

150 Loads a program image file at >2000

 

As this works on any Hard Drive and Disk Controller I have no way to see why it crashed with a file error.

Any help would be great, thanks.

How come no matter what path I put in it only does DSK0. or TIPI. as the path?

Did you press (R)elaod, after setting a drive mapping path??? That is required to save changes ...I believe.:ponder:

I made my path string equal to 25 so that the user path can be located in sub folders on tipi as well.

Reload just verifies the settings take
Write is what you need to do to write the changes to pi.config

If it's easier open pi.config in your editor of choice and then make the changes there and save it

This is the program image file it crashed above to load, this is a TI DIR View File to show what is in file:

150 CALL PLOAD(2,"DSK1.SCRN"&STR$(A))

Is this statement hitting the floppy controller first instead of TIPI?   What happens if you pull the floppy controller out of the box.

No as it is in GPL first it search's all the GPL DSR for the Device Name then it goes to ROM and searches.

It uses the same exact DSR search as Editor Assembler Cart or XB cart same one, it just loads a Program Image File but does not need a header.

Once in the VDP buffer the CALL PLOAD routine moves it to the correct RAM location.

Therefore it works just it always has for RXB since 2001 when I wrote the routine and has worked for every device made up till now.

I suspect TIPI is looking for a FILE HEADER LOCATION TO LOAD IT, but that is not needed as the routine takes care of it.

Look this is the same as a XB program, TIPI does not tell it where to load XB programs or a CALL LOAD object file, so why does it need a file header?

The reason for SAMS CALL PLOAD in RXB is to be able to move RAM or load RAM without restrictions as DATA does not care where it resides.

Rich,

 

It is going to be important to provide some log files from the TIPI to know what is happening on the TIPI/PI side of things.  Those log files will show what commands it is receiving, file attributes being received, PI responses, and more.

 

One or two people may be GPL code aware, but it is those log files that can shed a lot of information.  

 

When you post a log file, describe the action your code is anticipated to do and what the results were.  And when you do not get the expected result, immediately stop work on your TI, go to your PC and capture the log file so nobody is left figuring out where/when the code in question was called.  Give us the filename(s) you expect were to be accessed as well.

 

Tim and I worked on TIPI integration with MDOS and consulted with Matt as we pushed the boundaries further with the Geneve development.  When we came across something when pushing the envelope, we then wrapped those results into a TI-99/4A Extended Basic program or example along with the log file entries on how to demonstrate the issue.

 

You have to make the effort to get the log file entries in question posted, otherwise, there is little anyone can do to support you.

If it is not hitting the TIPI at all, then the TIPI DSR isn't being hit.  So, I looked at the header for the TIPI DSR.  Rich, does your GPL code depend upon something at the highlighted section in the TIPI header?

 

 

; DSR ROM header
  AORG >4000
   
  BYTE >AA ; Standard Header
  BYTE >01 ; version
  DATA >0000 ; # of application programs / reserved
  DATA pwrlnk ; power up list
  DATA >0000 ; user-program list (grom only)
  DATA tipilnk ; DSR list
  DATA basiclnk ; LVL2 DSRLNK & BASIC CALL subroutine list
  DATA >0000 ; interrupt list
  DATA >0000 ; something for groms... can't find docs.
   
  ; TIPI routine list - well known addresses for some custom exposure
  DATA recvmsg ; MOV @>4010,R0 BL *R0 to invoke recvmsg.
  DATA sendmsg ; MOV @>4012,R0 BL *R0 to invoke sendmsg.
  DATA vrecvmsg ; MOV @>4014,R0 BL *R0 to invoke recvmsg.
  DATA vsendmsg ; MOV @>4016,R0 BL *R0 to invoke sendmsg.

That is not relevant. 

 

RXB is doing a DSRLNK with list offset >08, so that should just be looking at the tipilnk/DSR list

What makes you think TIPI is doing this? By your own admission it doesn't do that for XB programs. I would like to hear an explanation of how you got to this assumption.

 

If I were to make a guess I would expect it has to do with my notes here: https://github.com/jedimatt42/tipi/blob/master/hardware/dsr/devices.a99

 

TIPI may be using more of the GPL workspace registers than RXB allows for. It works with every other program that issues a LOAD, such as EA Option 5, TI BASIC, XB, Tunnels of Doom, Adventure, Force Command, DM2K, parts of RXB, so...  (actually widespread and historical success is not an indicator of correctness. It just indicates a failure to fail)

 

In your GPL code that you posted, the comments around your CALL LINK are wrong. They don't match your code. To read that code, I would need to know the addresses that your symbols refer to, and for the comments to be corrected. The thing that stands out, is the comment that indicates you are using the offset >10 ( LVL2 subprogram list ) to link to, when you are setting the offset to be >08 as expected for LVL3 IO. With precision, what are the values of @PAD, LINK, and the series of @FACxx symbols. What are the values of the other significant symbols?

No my DSR is exactly the same as the how Editor Assembler works, I posted the code you can see it is exactly the same.

The only difference is I am not looking for a header on the file as I do not care if it has one, just the name.

The reason I do not need a header is the header says how long the file is, but look at what is posted it shows >1001 file size so it is right size

but I do not check that just the name. Also a file header normally has the address where to load and again that is not needed.

If the name is wrong it just errors out. 

This is the most simplified loader and saver anyone could right. 4K size Program Image File, no header just filename.

Again this has been used since RXB 2001, so not a new thing or use.

Thanks but RXB is not using a CALL LINK, it not ASSEMBLY ACCESS maybe that is the confusion this is GPL ONLY there is no Assembly used.

Hmm LINK1 is the name picked by TI originally it is not a CALL LINK for assembly like EA or XB.

It just as easily could be CRAP1 or JUNK1 so do not mistake this for Assembly.

XB CALL and BASIC CALL had different set up for headers to subprograms.

Rich,

 

I appreciate your postings, however I will be the first to tell you I pretty much understand nothing about GPL.  Greg indicated there was nothing in the logs, so the code wasn't hitting the TIPI or at least not hitting the log file.  Even with a poorly constructed PAB, at least what I have seen on the Geneve/TIPI side of things, there would still be a log entry even if the PI could not process it unless the process for logging itself got hung up itself.

 

I will say this with some of the things Tim and I have tested, we have come across situations where things were working fine with certain functions, then things stopped working that should have worked and we were really scratching our heads disbelieving a code change would have that impact.  This was caused by bad code on our side the PI could not process resulting in a lockup, and some of those times were not recorded in the log file because of the processes that got hung up on the PI side of things because that kind of error was never anticipated.

 

It does not hurt if you have the capability, to have an occasional PI reboot to at least test and view the log file to confirm the file logged your most recent actions when you think something you are testing should have worked.  I have seen more than one time when things were not being saved in the log file because of a bad pab request when code went through several layers of translation.  Then, you think you are not hitting the TIPI, but you actually are with good code, but processes are having issues because of a previous poor construct of code.  Matt has been really good addressing those kinds of issues with the more obscure functionality.

 

Tim has an assembly tool that writes to the RS232 directly to understand what information is being passed and received in the development efforts on the Geneve that uses a Windows terminal on the receiving end.  I don't know if you have the ability to do something in GPL that would create similar functionality or not but may be worth exploring if you don't have something already.

For what it's worth, when I was working on SNP and trying to get the DSR to cooperate, and which I finally was able to do saves and loads on to tipi shared drives, but then my tipi clock quit working, it had been working for months with no issues I thought for sure I have a PAB conflict, it turned out that the tipi clock routine I was using was using a number 9 in the description of the text length which was also a 9 but it caught my attention, and so I threw a 10 and replace the nine in there and I added a space at the end of the file name and it fixed my tipi clock issue but what I'm trying to say is it had nothing to do with my PAB for my DSR but just showed up when I was having to be working on the DSR for my saves so crap can happen I guess out of the blue when even and odd addresses don't see eye to I.

The BYTE (>08) following the CALL is the DSR’s reference to level 3 routines, I believe.

RXB is, in fact using a “CALL LINK”. It just happens to be a GPL subroutine branch instruction to a GROM0 address labelled “LINK” rather than a Basic call to Assembly Language Code (ALC).

 

And, not to put too fine a point on it, but ALC is most certainly used by RXB in that the GROM0’s GPL DSRLNK calls the console ROM0’s DSRLNK code. It is from that ALC that the DSR ROM’s code is searched and, if found, is executed. Of course, if it is not found in a DSR ROM, GROM headers are searched, etc.
