Overview of QL SD / CF Solutions

In the past week I have been asked by a couple of people about which SD / CF solution they should get for a QL, so I thought a topic was the best way of tackling this. My reply to the original enquiry was: There are several options: a) Use a HxC floppy disk emulator connected to a standard disk inte...

Re: Computer/shipping/work woes...

I thought Microsoft had issued the fix to protect the microcode months ago! Sorry to hear your woes though. As for the UK post office - they probably misread the package - I have sent items only for them to be returned to me by the post office the next day (delivered of course, just to the return ad...

After replacing the processor board, and general tidying up the machine, it was working. I then used it for a while only to have the PSU (in the monochrome monitor) go up in smoke. I ...

Re: Cross-Chase

To just see if it is capable of compiling my game, I have tried the dockerized version but with not much luck. I have managed to install it through docker with the pull command but the compiler cannot be executed successfully: $ docker run xora/qdos-gcc qdos-gcc ./hello.c qdos-gcc: ./hello.c: No su...

Re: QLWiki - Now with added templates

Thanks Norm - that is a great idea and should be very useful (I always just used to copy the content from an existing page).

Re: Cross-Chase

I have no experience of docker and alas I have never used gcc on the QL. I guess the problem is down to the fact that a QL has no understanding of directories nor does it support / as a directory divider. When you say you have created a file /c/Retro/hello.c - where is this on the QL? How is /usr/lo...

Re: Problem with making partitions

Could it be the size of the partition table?

Have you checked for any bent pins on either the CF card holder (I have had that happen before) or on the QL expansion connector?

Re: Problem with making partitions

There are also a lot of fake SanDisk CF cards and a lot of equipment does not work with the fake cards.
