So to my knowledge there are  documented 2 ways to run Z80 Cromix 11.27 on a Windows system using ZEMU under Windows and using Udo Monks Z80PACK under Linux.

Until today Udo's Z80PACK required starting via a graphical frontpanel.    This was less than ideal from my Raspberry Pi emulation, running Z80PACK, which is accessible via the internet.   Why?

Well I wanted to be able to fully reset the system, say every midnight, and do so via a command line script   (driven by cron).    The current Z80PACK forced me to start a graphical session, launch a front panel and click stuff.

So to remind all that the original article is here


So Then

In the very similar soon to be published article I'll go through an alternative build procedure that ends up in a run line that does everything command line and needs no front panel.

This can live on something as small as a Raspberry Pi  (I use a 4B  with 2GB memory with a 64bit OS)

Coming soon
