Hello all!

I've been busy with my new 760 and compiling new emulators for it and the X11 ROM (which just rocks!).

I've compiled all of VICE now for the 760 as well as some other emulators. I'm also trying to compile SheepShaver which is a PowerMAC (yes you read that right) emulator for Linux. I did Basilisk II which runs great on the 760 -given the higher screen res- so I thought it would be cool to try SheepShaver since the latest version support other CPUs than x86.

Oh, and the new Amiga Emulator based on UAE.

I have two questions (dumb?) that I'm hoping some folks could help with:

1. I'm not compiling on the Z so when the compile is done I can check whicih libs the exe is going to need with ldd. Is there any handy command that would allow me to ldd the exe and then copy the libs that it needs to a certain directory?


2. Now, I've only had my 760 a week so I'm still in 5500 mode but I need a newer version of glibc (2.3 or higher). I've gone out and grabed glibc_2.3.2-1_arm.ipk but I'm having problems installing it.

If I use ipkg install glibc_2.3.2-1_arm.ipk it gives me an error and suggests that I might need to update.

If I run Qpack its also unhappy with the file.

Is this because ipkg looks at ipkg.conf and wants to go online instead of just installing the ipk I've specified?

Is there a better way to install this that I'm just plain missing here?


Thanks for any help!

Won't you release any of these emulators.

Btw. a good place to get help is in irc at #cacko on freenode

To following script will copy all the libs from the output of the ldd command the /tmp/. Note that we use both ` and ' and the the difference is very important. The print $3 prints out the 3rd field from each line of output so you may need to change that to $4 or $2 if the output of your version of ldd is different then mine. Good luck.
[ckeswani@writingpenguin tmp]$ for i in `ldd /bin/ls | awk '{ print $3 }'`

I've been wondering if there's an Apple ][ emulator that works on the Z. It's about the only important old machine I can't find.
Pentad
Of course I'm going to release everything I do on the Z. Here is my web site: http://www.mmhart.com/zaurus_on_mmhartcom.htm

ckeswani thanks for the script! I'm going to tryi it out now.

As for an Apple II emulator, I have not been able to compile any Apple II emmy I've found for the Z. I know that Lord Davon was doing KEGS but I think there was a problem with it. I too would like to get an Apple II Emulator working for the Z so if there are any suggestions I would love to hear them.

I'd love to mirrir your emulators on zaurus.spy.org/emulators, etc. your site is wonderful,
but it's VERY VERY VERY slow to dl.

What is your setup that allows you to compile for the Z?

I appreciate this work very much - that's what we need. And all I can add is that many of us (as I think and hear) are in dire need of x86 (DOS) emulator with VGA, V86 mode, mouse and SB support, as well as of proper ZX Spectrum emulator. Some of them exist for Qtopia, but not for X11. sad.gif Zbochs, besides, is REALLY slow even under Qtopia - keyboard responds were following in more than a second or two. I don't need Pentium speed smile.gif , but I think that XScale PXA255 is quite capable of emulation of at least 386DX-33.
ScottYelich
I agree. zaurus.spy.org/#EMULATORS ... hopefully dosbox & qemu will
help.

Scott

Thank you! But I haven't been able to find there a way to start ANY (not specific) DOS program under X11 ROM, not under X over Qtopia (these things differ quite a bit, if I understand it correctly). It will be VERY helpful if someone compiles an .IPK package for X11 with any DOS emulator that works properly and faster than genuine PC AT. smile.gif

I am going to port over DosBOX and Kegs next. I just finished porting over MaxMame. Because of the X availablity, it takes care of the screen issues I was having in both. ;-)

LD
LordDavon
Ok. DosBOX is now ported. ;-)

ScottYelich
kegs....
/me scurries.

Kegs should be easy. Give me a day. I am still trying to optimize DosBOX and MAME.

FYI: Mame is running very nicely on the x11 ROM. In fact it is noticably faster then in Qtopia. DosBOX needs some more tweaking.
LordDavon
Ok. Kegs is ported. Give me a day to test it out.

LD
LordDavon
p.s. Anyone want to beta test these, let me know.
LordDavon
Hey, Kegs is pretty cool. ;-)

I'm downloading now. Should I make the files available to others?

Scott
LordDavon
Feel free to list them as public betas. Make sure to tar.gz them first.

LD
ScottYelich
tar what?
LordDavon
tar -czf filename.tar.gz filename

LD
ScottYelich
*sigh*
nevermind.

I don't see the purpose of tarring a single file.

I would be really interested in a port of Basilisk II or (better?) Sheepshaver to pdaXrom. But the above link is dead...

It would be fun to run a mac emulation on the Z. I did get it going on my 5500 (now dead), but using the clamshell's bigger screen would be fab. I would want a pdaxrom version though, of course. When I first started using macs my screen for my home mac was only 600x480, so it is possible to do useful things on it. I was even designing using Quark Xpress; wouldn't that be a hoot on the Z?

If anyone has any live links, please let me know. (And if I have to compile from source I'll need someone to hold my hand, as whenever I have tried that before I find I have to go on a seemingly endless quest for this or that library file etc).

Thanks

Is there any news on the kegs port? I've tried the current one which is good but there are issues with the mouse pointer.
