PedroM 68k OS Released
Posted by Michael on 10 December 2003, 23:21 GMT

Patrick Pelissier, author of PreOS and other fine 68k programs, has written the first third-party operating system for the 68k calcs. The open-source PedroM looks like a Unix shell, has task switching and a much smaller size (only 192 KB). It is designed to be compatible with the AMS 1.xx series.

In order to include this OS in our archives, we have added categories for TI-89 Operating Systems, TI-92 Plus Operating Systems, and Voyage 200 Operating Systems.

Morgan has also been fixing up the TI-83 Plus Flash directory into subcategories of games, science, math, et cetera. New submissions should no longer go into the general Flash category but rather one of these new subcategories.

Update (Michael): We are currently being Slashdotted, but holding up just fine because HTTP requests are load-balanced among our Beowulf cluster of 2000 TI-85s. Bring it on!

There are more people in position 2 than you may think, I for one have graduated from high school and am going into the armed forces (US Navy) and not going to college till afterward, I have no need for a CAS, and if I ever do, I'll just put AMS 2.05 back on...

Ti CAS is simply no sufficient for me (Very high math degree).

I'm not questioning your statement, just curious...

What sorts of things do you miss? And what is the specific degree, if I may ask?

Well I was all ready to say this was really cool but my game(freecell) dosent work on it correctly, so I will have to wait a little longer before removing AMS1.00 from my calc.

Just incase anyone is interested, my beef is this. After I exit from a dialogue box the font size does not automatically return to default font as it should. It is only a one line modification to my prog to make it work, but all the same it doesnt act the same way tios would.
Other problem is also related to dialogue box. Not exactly sure what the problem but it isnt displaying something right. Will have to check out my code to see what the problem is, but it is displayed what should be a number(not sure which one) as a black blob.

UhhOhh. Another problem. When I win, the boucing card graphic doesnt bounce. Then when I exit CRASH...
Would using the area of the LCD that doesnt exist on the 89 cause a crash.

I guess it is safe to exclude my program from the compatible list.

Yes. But I have to release a bugfix release soon.
I will try to make your game work. Thanks for your remarks.

If you don't know much about how a unix/linux system works...I added animated screenshots to the two file showing the basics of how to list what files you have, execute the files, how to remove a file and some proof that it does do basic math.

Hey you are right! It turned my $150+ calc in to a 4 function calc! Way to go!

really though, if I did not need my calc for math, or had a prayer that TI would replace my other proken calc, then I would use it. That and my link port is kind of buggy.

By the way, it is released under GPL, not only Open-Source. See the URL above for more explanation.

I got an address error when I ran Space Dementia II. Also, where would the most update version of the SMQ library be for the v200, I get an error with PreOS saying I have the wrong one.

1. I will check Space Dementia II tonight.
2. It is a warning, not an error. A more updated version of this library doesn't exist.

Morgan Davies: Preos Is not familar with SMQ. SMQ's lib is not a normal assembly lib. PreOS has special versions of the normal libs, but this would not work with SMQ. Just ingnore PreOS's errors. The only problem with the SMQlib under PreOS is that it fails to shows directory names correctly. (On my calc is shows them as Random sysmbols, and the probem might be in SMQ itself anyway.)

Aparently there is this thing called a TIB reciever, or the llike. I don't know what it is, so I cannot tell you. I just heard people talking about it. Maybe we will get some answers. I did not ask, because I cannot put it on my calc, so I am not that concerned.

Sorry for the copy&paste, but this is one more instance of the same question, so it gets the same answer.

You actually need both an OS sender and an OS receiver (because it is not signed by TI):
* OS sender: the one coming with AMS 1.05 (you can ask TI for it) is fine. Extract ti89base.exe or ti92base.exe (they are self-extracting ZIPs) and use the EXE that comes out of them.
* OS receiver: TIB Receiver.

WARNING: This WILL overwrite AMS. You'll have to reflash your calculator once more if you want to get AMS (with CAS and all) back.

Tilp is buggy with TIB files. You have to transform it in 9xu.

You have to transform it in 89u. Not just renamming.

¿transform?.....sounds easy.....but how?....or you could send me the file?....now i put it the rom 1.00 and not work....looks like be easy but im really dont get it...

You need to copy the file header from a real 89u and to add it in front of your TIB with a hex editor.
