Qestions about the Linux build?

Post by DarthNvader » Tue 21 Feb, 2017 8:33 pm

I built the latest version from source, but all the Machines don't seem to be available, I only get:

IBM PC
IBM XT
IBM PCjr
Generic XT clone
Phoenix XT clone
Juko XT clone
Tandy 1000
Tandy 1000 HX
Tandy 1000 SL/2
Amstrad PC1512
Sinclear PC200
Euro PC
Olivetti M24A
Amstad PC1640
Amstad PC2006
Amstad PC3006
IBM AT
Commodore PC 30 III
AMI 286 clone
Award 286 clone
Dell System 200
IBM PS/1 Model 2011
IBM PS/1 model 2121
Acer 386SX25/N
DTK 386SX clone
Amstad MegaPC
AMI 386SX clone

I seem to be missing all the 486 Machines, and maybe some others.

Is this a limitation of the Linux build, or do I need to do something other than ./configure and make to get the other machines?

Do you have all the BIOSEs in their respective folders and named correctly?

Also double check the capitalisation of the BIOS file names - this has been an issue in the past.

I'm using the same Roms folder I use for wine, I seem to have all the Machines in wine, but not in the native Linux build?

I don't see an Caps in the Rom names.

Maybe that's the problem. In Unix world, ALI1429G.AMW, ali1429g.amw and ALI1429g.amw are different things. In Windows, capitalisation doesn't matter. Note that Linux will check capitalisation even if the files are placed in FAT or NTFS filesystems.

Check the source code (the file mem.c) to find the correct BIOS names (actually this only covers PC BIOSes, not video and sound card BIOSes).
