Re: REXX assign issue

Just wanted to point out it did and does work on previous versions of the OS.
I tried your test with the OS3 RX command and that didn't work on OS4.1FE either. Workarounds that worked for me are: rx REXX:amiga.rexx and REXX:amiga.rexx

These drivers are still undergoing testing, and get regular updates within the beta team. When they will be realeased to the general users is, at this time, unknown however.

Bear with A-Eon, who are doing their best to bring the drivers up to release state.
O.K. Thanks for the update.

X5000 hard disk driver

Will we ever see a 'completed' hard disk driver? Shortly after receiving my X5000 in July 2017 I reported the problem with incrementing CD device names (Each time a new CD is inserted the device name changes e.g. CD1, CD2, CD3 etc.). I was told by a core dev (Rigo) that the hard disk driver was not ...

Re: Mounting SFS key problem

My SFS version is: SmartFilesystem 1.293 (19/11/2015) AmigaOS4 PPC A-EON Technology Ltd It's the same on my SAM440 (OS4.1 Final Edition), on the X5000 (recently purchased), and on the Enhancer Software CD... Doesn't seem to be the solution... My X5000 is at another location right now but I can make...

Re: Home/End keys support in MultiView (text file)

Then, can be implemented at the end ? :) Multiviewer doesn't seem to implement it either, so maybe it's the datatype that needs to be updated. I tested a number of text editors, word processors and text readers. They seem to be about evenly split between 'top & bottom of document', 'begin & end of ...

Re: WIKI errors for sift.c example in IFFParse Library docs

I am changing my ways there. Aside from ordering of values, I can see the bottom is more clear what it does, but because of my background I imagine the compiler producing poor code that actually checks the variable against zero instead of testing it and using the CPU Z flag. I just don't trust comp...

Re: SystemTagList() inconsistency

Consider the following code: SystemTags("echo hello", SYS_Output, 0, SYS_Input, 0, SYS_Asynch, TRUE, SYS_UserShell, TRUE, NP_StackSize, 32768, NP_Priority, 0, NP_Path, 0, TAG_DONE); On AmigaOS 3 and MorphOS this will print "hello" to the host program's stdout. On AmigaOS 4, however, nothing will be...

Re: USB flash FAT32 and usb external NTFS drive

That sounds strange. The massstorage GUI should only show disks (massstorage devices) connected over USB. Your hard drive is not on USB, is it? The massstorage GUI on the current X5000 is different than all other OS4.x hardware in that respect. The last I heard the p5020sata.device isn't done and t...

Re: Iconifying a console window

So is there a good reason it looks in ENVARC: rather than ENV: ? Seems contrary to the Style Guide. My guess would be this: The console.device is looking in several places for 'def_shell.info' before it finds one to use. ENVARC: is a directory assignment while ENV: is a device that's not supposed t...

Re: Iconifying a console window

Thanks for the replies. I agree it would be a bit tricky to change the icon in ENVARC: each time I launch my program (and go back and reset the icon when done). I don't want to upset any "global" variables used by the Shell console or any system programs. There is another possibility. ENVARC: is an...
