34S without Windows



#7

For you non-Windows users out there wp34sgui works again with Wine (Unix/Linux Windows emulator).

Tips:

  1. cd to ~/.wine/dosdevices and symlink your USB to Serial device. e.g.
    cd ~/.wine/dosdevices
    ln -s -f /dev/tty.usbserial-FTFTXBQO com4
    This will allow you to use wp34sgui to serial xfer stuff.

  2. svn download the latest wp34s:
    svn co https://wp34s.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/wp34s wp34s.svn
  3. Setup wp34sgui to use a com port to transfer to the physical:
    cd wp34s.svn/trunk/windows/bin
    echo com4: >wp34s.ini
  4. Lastly fire it up:
    wine wp34sgui &

Issues:

  1. I cannot get the 34S to send to the virtual 34S, however sending from the virtual to the physical works just fine. I'll have to investigate some more, but just having virtual to physical is a great start. No VMware and no Windows. Yeah!
  2. MySamba.exe untested. Also on my list.

Thanks for the test. Try a speed correction factor (a percentage) in X on the device before the transfer. Start with 95.


#9

Worked with 90. Thanks! All is right with the universe again.

#10

Question. Is there a chksum program to test RAM or parts of RAM for bad transfers? I read the docs on SHOW, but that does not address libraries (SENDL) or registers (SENDR) or entire state (SENDA).

Thanks.

Yes, the test is automatic. All transfers are secured by a 16 bit CRC.

#12

MySamba.exe tested. It does not work. MySamba does not enumerate the COM ports. A free-form field in MySamba would be appreciated.
