I'm sure 99.9% users believe (just like me) that using MiNT-NetThis is possible. But once again, yes, this is everything you need, no
requires whole MiNT stuff installation - not only a prg in auto
folder and some drivers to and fro -. :-/
unix stuff, no ext2 partitions, no command line stuff.
Once again, I always thought that installing MiNT-Net and otherHey, wait here. You can't of course boot MagiC! -- it's separate OS,
related stuff, one would need some "make" commands that can only
be brought by MiNT itself, MiNT-Net beeing closely MiNT-dependant
in my mind - and more than surely in most non-MiNT users' one -.
Er... unless I didn't understand anything at all, it doesn't seem
possible to boot MagiC! and let it launch the kernel by putting it
just like FreeMiNT is. So you can't mix up these two. Either you have
to boot into MagiC or into FreeMiNT. But as Henk says, all your
settings (Thing, ACCs, ...) are preserved and you can use them.
About Ethernat: I admit, it's a little bit tricky. There are some
files which are present in standard unix environment (configuration
stuff -- like /etc/resolv.conf) and you have to copy it into some TOS
partition and cut the name (e.g. d:\etc\resolv.cnf). Hell, I can't
remember where I've seen this. Some guy posted his configuration for
ethernat boot... yes, I know! It was on dhs forum. I'll try to search
for that and post it here. It was really something like zipped 5 files
which you copy to C: and here you are.
OK, let's sum-up...
I spent over 3 hours yesternight trying to have it run properly :
- copied mint.prg in my auto folder,
- copied mint folder including 1-16-1 and xaaes at the root of c:\,
- edited both mint and xaaes cfg to match my system,
- rebooted and deactivated (thanks menu6) all magic! related stuff,
- kept my fingers crossed... and
despites I correctly set up (I think) the env (home, etc, usr,
Thing, video, ...) variables, I could only get monochrom ;
I tried to set the mintnet stack to match my settings - it seemed
easy, while my magxnet config is based upon mintnet -, but, once
again, I couldn't even get the leds of my ethernec blink.
I then tried with the ethernat, and there again nothing, while
with magic at least it lit, even if it made the system crash.
With mintnet, it looks like it weren't seen by the system.
Today, as my work let me a little free time, I went browsing the net
and found that :
From what I understood (or, rather, what I think I understood), itseems that the best is to run a total install. Though this site is
somewhat outdated, and maybe things changed a lot since then...
Now, just a question : I read that I would have to format a partition
as either minix or whatsoever.
Suppose I download easymint, find a free partition on my disk, format
it to ext2 and run easymint... will I be able to tell him to install
on the right partition, or will it put all stuff where he wants and
destroy my system ?
This is very important, as I can't backup my files anymore due to
problems with my scsi bus...
