Re: [Freedos-user] Freedos-user Digest, Vol 302, Issue 1 MELVIN FRIEDLANDER Thu Aug 27 20:00:50 2009

Hello Mateusz and Alex,

Thank you both for your very quick response on the question of using QBasic on 
my XP. However, I am somewhat computer ignorant and need to know the specifics 
on how this can be done. What do I download or buy or get through my email or 
phone?

Mel

I have an old Dell Latitude CPi A Laptop that has Puppy and FreeDOS installed
on it. Puppy works fine, sound and full video. But FreeDOS has problems.
First, there is no sound, which I've heard is common. According to the Dell
website, the sound controller is a "NeoMagic 2200 AC97 Codec" which is of
the type "Sound Blaster Emulation." Yet the sound doesn't work. I don't know
the first thing about FreeDOS, other than how to navigate to my games. How
do I get sound working?
Second, but not as important, is that the video does not fill up the whole
screen. Once again, I'm assuming this has something to do with the drivers.
It is a NeoMagic 2200.
Lastly, I'd like to be able to use my USB drive with FreeDOS. I installed
"DosUSB," and the drive lights up after I run the program. How do I access
the drive?
Hoping for an answer,
ron3090

try this generic SB audio enabler:

or this ac97 dos driver by via (viafmstr):

I use Quick Basic for many of my scientific programs. Quick Basic is on a MSDOS 
system which I have on a computer using Windows 98. Would it be possible to 
transfer my DOS program to a computer using Windows XP?

Hi,

As far as I know, QuickBasic run just fine on Windows XP...
However, you could also check out the FreeBASIC compiler. FreeBASIC is very 
similar to QuickBasic (but *much* more powerful), and allows to compile 
programs for DOS, Windows (XP, Vista, etc) and Linux.

Best regards,
Mateusz Viste

Hello;

I have an Atheros pci-x 802.11 wireless card in my Asus EEEpc laptop and
there is no driver available for the card! Does anyone have some links and
resources pertaining to driver/packet driver development for DOS? I'm not
looking for a quick fix, but a project!

  Yes, indeed, Qbasic runs nicely on Windows XP. It can also be run very well 
in Dosbox or Dosemu under Linux.

Hi Bray,

Expect a big project here... You can see many examples of open
source DOS network card packet drivers on the CRYNWR homepage:

www.crynwr.com/drivers/

Atheros.com says they actively support the Linux driver:

http://madwifi-project.org/
http://sourceforge.net/projects/madwifi/
http://madwifi-project.org/wiki/Chipsets

There are actually THREE variants of the driver:

http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/ath9k
http://madwifi-project.org/wiki/About/ath5k
...and a third based on a non-portable binary blob

The drivers will depend on Linux infrastructure so you will probably
have to add many other bits and pieces. You can probably get an easier
start by only porting their info tool first:

http://madwifi-project.org/browser/ath_info/trunk

A good compiler for porting Linux stuff to DOS is DJGPP:

www.delorie.com/djgpp/

Of course with Wireless things are usually much worse
than with normal network cards, because you will have
to have some software which takes care of setting up
wireless connection details. In many networks, you will
also need something which does WEP, WPA or WPA2 security.

But of course I understand that you do not want to carry
a cable which is heavier than your tiny netbook laptop :-)

Eric



PS: Maybe you can also check whether the EEE PC supports
int 15.87 and if not whether some HIMEMX / JEMM386 combo
or similar could be used to make FDAPM ACPIDUMP work ;-)

Hi everybody, Angelo Rosina writes about a BASIC for DOS,
forwarding some info from him :-) Should we add XST to our
freedos.org software collection and/or the distro? :-)

Eric


 
Since XST is compiled with DJGPP, it's hardware requirements are almost
the same of FreeBasic
 
FreeBasic (FB) and XST Basic are different products, with different targets.
 
FB is a true compiler; XST is an interpreter + a C emitter (it cannot
directly compile, but can convert the source into a C code that can be
compiled)
 
FB has a QB compatible mode; XST is more based on AMOS and STOS Basic
(for Amiga and Atari ST)
 
FB is a generic, all-purposes language; XST is focused on multimedia and
game development (even a very good Doom clone is available in demos)
 
FB can be extended with external libraries; XST already has graphic,
sprites, 3D and sound support.
 
FB can only compile, you have to use an external editor (i.e. RHIDE);
XST has its own IDE, where you can write and instantly run your program.
 
If you have any more questions, feel free to ask.
