cmi8738 sounds promising, any progress on a driver for?, I've both internal and external of that chipset in my intel 2.0gb celeron, but neither works in kolibri. Either the latest svn or the nightly build I've been hacking away at. pe2kos & exe2kos, can I port my code for org100 realmode using either of these utilities?
Into the shell I mean, I've not seen a drop to realmode function in syscalls.txt
and it's a bummer to have to re-learn a different assembler than the one I
usually use. I read of the developer using masm somewhere on this forum, and wondered if I could use my usual compiler [bascom20/Turbobasic & or magic.exe (asm112.zip)] and pe2kex, or cross-compile to kos with a tool, as he or she does with masmcode, but I'm not sure of how. I tried both said utilities with some win basic .exes, but lucked out miserably. How do I use these utilities to get a decent version of basic into Koli? Tinybasic is antiquated and horrible to use. I'm thinking QB64, tb, pb, bec, apb16 or even basm or bapc or something along those lines, if you are aware of those dialects. By the way, google translate often translates russian to unreadable english, syntaxually and gramatically, wrong words in sentences etc, I only hope my english translates to your tongues correctly.
Can shell console run scripts? that one might compile to code ah la bat2com.exe does in dos-batch environment?. Am using dosbox and my code works there as it should, but dosbox is an emu, not realmode, and not kolibri either, if you understand my drift. I'll dump up pcidrv.txt for my cmi8738 box,
it runs both onboard and card version together, as my recording software recognises multiple cards [cooledit pro]. I've 15 or so different isa sound cards, but finding an isa-bus box in nz is extremely difficult, as they've not been sold for 10 years or more. I have one box, a p3 intel, 3 x pci slots and 1 x isa, but I need a psu, as this blew up, and it's not a psu of todays standards, more like the device you'd get with a 486, and same dilemma as above applies. I wrote a tapedrive driver, but as above, wrong mode for kolibri. Am on cmi site downloading datasheets as I write this to you.
