I'm trying to get a working copy of Kermit on an RX01 on my 8/e.
So far I've tried os78v1-1-kermit.rx01 from
, and after booting and
running Kermit, it says: "Using SLU 2 9600 Baud", which seems correct as I
have 2 serial boards installed, and the 2nd board is strapped to 9600.
However, when trying to connect to a system, it fails to send or receive
characters. The 2nd board is strapped to 40/41, and works fine with
os8diskserver and simple toggle-in echo tests.
After a bit of reading I realised that the VT78, and thus in all
likelihood this copy of OS/78 has SLU2 set to 30/31, at least from what I
gathered from the V3D release notes:
It also says that the SLU2 handler is made by modifying the KL8E handler.
I tried running BUILD to see which handlers were installed, and SLU2
I found the source for V3D's KL8E handler here:
changed DEVICE to SLU2, INDVC to 40, and OUTDVC to 41. From there I
managed to successfully assemble it (as far as I can tell), and LOAD and
INSERT it in BUILD.
Despite all this, Kermit still doesn't seem to do anything.
Any ideas what I could be doing wrong? I'm pretty new to OS/8 so I feel
like I'm winging it a bit.
