I tried Netbsd on the pi back in the 7.x days and it wasn’t really working. But they have come a long way now and 9.2 works great so far. Way better fit on the $5 Pi Zero then the heavy official Linux distro. #pi #NetBSD
OK DTMF is working. I had to set it to inband audio since rfc2833 doesn't seem to be working with callcentric and my setup. The PBX seems to be talking to the voice system and everything seems to work OK.
Reading through the manual I see a nice feature that will really make my life better.
These are tash but I think the indiglo electroluminescent panel looks cool.
Well I got some 27c64's.. it at least does /something/ now 😆
Well I got a EPROM burner and rigged it work on the 2364 rom I pulled. I see 8 bytes that don't match the ROM images I find on the internet. I put my read image in an emulator and it never boots. The live memory map shows it stuck in a bootloop at about the same rhythm I am seeing on the scope. I think I am on the right path 🤞
Well RAM is ruled out. I think I am dealing with a bad ROM. D3 off the ROM seems to have lots of 0's. Also I am told there are HALT instructions in the rom code but the /HALT pin never drops on the Z80. What ever code it is executing sure doesn't seem right. Sockets installed. Ordered a 2364 to 27c64 EPROM adapter from RETRO Innovations. Now to wait for the mailman 😴
Sadly gopher segfaults if you set your terminal to 'dumb'. Happens on SDF and my local machine. But i managed to figure out you can set up your own local terminfo database with tic. Just name it ~/.terminfo.cdb in your home directory. Now I have fancy screen controls for my vic20 and CoCo on my sdf account. Gopher and lynx now run but a total mess. I guess they never tested for 22x23 or 32x16 screens 🤔
I figured it out. The Tandy COMPAC terminal program doesn't reset the VGU when it loads. So the basic POKES for lower case and alternate color mode stick 🙂
Surfing the information superhighway at 300 baud. I wish i could find a terminal program that supports the true lowercase my "2b" machine can do.
Having fun tinkering with old computers, old cars, old telco gear and any other junk i find. 8bit4life
