Re: Ubuntu 14.04.4 and uqlx2017

Note the change from *TCP_ to TCP_ is a two line patch if someone fancies changing that ;-)

Re: Ubuntu 14.04.4 and uqlx2017

I e-mailed Graeme Gregory to ask if the IP Device Driver was working in UQLX 2017. He says that he has never used IP on UQLX. From a search on the web, I found that back in 2009 someone was having problems getting the IP driver to work when compiling UQLX. Something to do with the version of the so...

Re: Ubuntu 14.04.4 and uqlx2017

A question about UQLX, if F1 is automatically keyed by the emulator, how do I initialise the Second Screen, which is F3 or F4. That's simple. It's not implemented. Tobias Hi, I did not realise that the second screen was not implemented. How hard would it be to implement the second screen.? Can the ...

Re: Ubuntu 14.04.4 and uqlx2017

On another point, When UQLX starts. I don't get the QDOS/Minerva start screen, it just goes straight into monitor mode as if F1 had been pressed. Is this an option that I can turn off, or have the supplied ROM images been patched to auto F1 on start up? Its controlled by FAST_STARTUP = 1 in the .uq...

Re: Ubuntu 14.04.4 and uqlx2017

Are the IP device drivers built into uqlx2017? I am trying to test my IP Network driver in uqlx. But I get a 'Not Found' error when I try to start the driver. I'm guessing it's failing when the program tries to open a couple of TCP channels. I have not investigated too deeply yet, But I was just wo...

Re: Sinclair ZX Spectrum 128k +2a. Boxed

That 2a (grey case) looks quite a bit like a 2b (black case) to me. ;) The original +2 was a grey case. The +2A, +2B and +3 were all black cases (and use a different membrane to the +2). Unfortunately, the grey +2 is more collectible, because it does not suffer with software compatability (and soun...
