updated version 0.193
this one includes a port of Fasm
Octasm now supports 'Elf relocatable' files ,so it should be possible to write
aplications with other compilers too.

Yesterday, I was unable to download it from his website. Now, I can't even get to it. So, he's undergoing maintenance (or his host is on the fritz). Either way, let's wait and see what he says. Smile

Hi, if you need some place for uploading, you can use sites like www.filefront.com or www.fileshack.com (i don't remember if the upload was allowed on this last one).

Bye!

Hello ,i have updated my web with the last version of my OS .The news are a chess game and cd\dvd\rw writer.
By default uses english keyboard and do not require mmx,but can be reassembled to use spanish keyboard and mmx.

Random tips:

  • requires Pentium (set "define MMX 1" in KERNEL.ASM, if desired), then reassemble and reboot
  • default is English keyboard, so change "define ESPANOL 0" to "1" and "define ENGLISH 1" to "0" in KERNEL.ASM if you never use KEYB_ENG, then reassemble and reboot
  • in fview, F3 to view text, press insert to edit, F2 to save, F5 to save/run via Octasm (F1 brings up help text)
  • in fview, copy then paste .ZIP to \\RD (menu -> aplic), then uncompress it
  • (FAT12 or FAT16, non-floppy) "LOAD.COM \\D0\NO\OCTA" (to run from C:\OCTA, only works w/o mem. managers in pure DOS)
  • change chess difficulty via menu -> aplic (F1 brings up help text, F2 saves a game, F3 loads it)
  • menu -> prnscreen saves OS screen to file (32bpp -> .BMP, 8bpp -> .PNG)
  • install to RAM then unmount and mount another FAT12 floppy via fview (to access its files)
  • command -> XCOPY(dir1,dir2)
  • slideshow of pics: command -> "d[delay]=2000", then press space in any dir in fview to view .JPG, .PNG, .BMP, .PCX, .GIF
  • fdformat wipes a floppy and adds a boot sector, and OctaOS will read it a bit faster after doing so
  • read DOC\*.TXT for more ideas
  • Don't forget: it runs FASM Laughing


EDIT: corrected a few errors after testing 0.200 (sorry, was relying on memory re: older version)

Good job, Octavio! Smile

Obviously you're not the only one. Just trying to prove that whatever it was, it still works in at least half the programs I tried (i.e., not that urgent to worry about).

Kudos on your hard work! Smile

Two interesting utils for OctaOS fans (though actually untested w/ the latest floppy image, but I strongly assume they work):


  • Lucho's modified/shrunk version of Dosius' 2k .EXE sfx stub w/ C src for DOS that can automatically write to a 1.44 floppy w/o needing RawWrite (and has a nice progress indicator too, thankfully!)
  • ATV's UNIMG.ZIP (unpacks FAT12, w/ FASM src) is also good (though SHSURDRV [NASM, DOS only] or EXTRACT [no src] should work too, among others)

USB tested on VIA Apollo MVP4 and KLE 133 (both have PCI ID 11068038):
on Apollo MVP4 it continuously says "usb error" from the start;
on KLE: with my Canon Camera inserted says "usb error"; with my mp3 player says "usb active", then "usb error", then "usb inactive"
I'm available to do some debugging if you want ...
