My build here on Dec 9, contains inetd in the cmds dirs of all levels,
however I'm not sure it is making it into the .dsk images. No, so the
makefile stanza for the dsk's would appear to be suspect, and I am not a
makefile expert Aaron.
This is true at least for the coco3_6309 .dsk's. also, no identd in the
coco3-6809 dsk's, and none of the makefiles that make dsk's mention inetd,
but it does exist in the cmds dirs freshly built, all up and down the tree.
I am actually getting ready for your dw4-Go for linux, I've moved Rogers
pack to the #0 slot so its not buried in the rest of the stuff, and it
appears to be working well again. That means I can cobble up a device
descriptor named p that will use the sc6551.dr to drive the BT thing, and I
can switch my listening script to listen to /dev/rfcomm0 and get my laser
printer back online from the coco3's vantage point, but with the bitbanger
port then free for DW's use.
Progress of sorts. ;-)
However its not helped by having to edit the level 2 krn.asm everytime I do
a 'cvs up', it winds up with the first 85 lines having 3 garbage lines
inserted that give mamou an upset tummy. Delete them and everything is
kewl. Bit rot maybe... Dunno.
