nitros9 daily clean build script for Gene

I suggested this so many times, but here it is on a silver plate, so
you have no escape :) Untested, so please tell if there is something
wrong, or if there is any reason you cannot use this.

Tormod

#!/bin/sh
# NitrOS-9 daily clean build script
# expects an existing repo in a "nitros9" directory
set -e
cd nitros9
if ! hg incoming; then
    echo "No new changes to pull"
    exit 1
fi
hg pull
hg update
cd ..
BUILD_DIR=nitros9-$(date +%Y-%m-%d-%H-%M)
hg clone nitros9 $BUILD_DIR
cd $BUILD_DIR
make dsk dskcopy
cd ..

#only for Gene:
chown -R gene:www-data $BUILD_DIR

I am back to not being able to format a floppy, help plz

Greetings all;

If you have a nitros9 l2 system that can format a floppy without locking 
up, I need to see the smap, vfy -x format, and ident -m rb1773 outputs.

Here, format is whats being built by yesterdays pull and build.

smap shows:

format problems in an mb script

Greetings everybody;

How does one go about tell format to quit yelling because its a hard disk 
when commanding it to format /sh?  /sh being one of the 254 floppy images 
in hdbdos.

The mb script says:
echo * Step 1: Format disk in %1
format %1 "NitrOS9v329sd2.1 lvl 3 Boot" R

where %1 has been assigned to /sh.  From the help format the R option is 
supposed to tell it to go ahead, but it still says its a hard disk.

I can do it by hand, by tapping y, but in the script it bails.

Do I put a couple y's on the end of the commend in the form of " <y"(more 
y's if needed) or what?

Cheers, Gene Heskett

coco cartriges

I got a  coco2 cartrige on ebay.

I opened it, without breaking it J 

I found inside  a small board that can contains  2 x 24 pins roms

On my cartridge, there is only one rom installed..

Are these roms 4k or 8k ?  any eprom compatible with these eprom  ?

Marking on the eprom:

SCM90706P

TANDY  C 1981

8070033

M 8140

Any way to use this cartridge to install a rom to start drivewire ?

Thanks

To Tormod

Greetings all;

I finally got around, since its cold & mugly wet weather today, to running 
my /opt/getnitros9 script, which renames the existing lwtools, toolshed, 
and nitros9 trees on my hard drive by appending todays date to the dirname 
of each one's root, then pulls new copies and builds it all.  So I now 
have a copy of the latest as of today, Oct 21 at about 15:15.  Amazingly 
to me, my script still worked!

Unforch the root makefile does not make any dsk's for level3, which I 
thought I would make one last pass at making it work before embarking on 
my own version of a level3 that gives every driver its own 8k piece of ram 
to play in.

Any guidance available here, or do I go kick the tires on the nitros9 root 
makefile?

Cheers, Gene Heskett
