MySamba and Linux: (easy) success!



#5

I use Linux Ubuntu, and I've been using SamBa on a virtualized Windows XP for all my wp-34s flashing needs. But I decided I should try mySamba.exe too. And I can report that it worked very easily, directly with Wine under Linux.

As others reported, it didn't enumerate the Com ports; but I just had to write "com1:" in the com port field, and it worked on first try. Of course I had Wine setup to map the USB-Serial adapter to Com1:.
No more virtualized Windows for me!

Well, almost: I couldn't find a way to transfer the flash regions with mySamba. But for the main flashing it works great.

You can:
  1. cat calc.bin *.dat >fullcalc.bin and flash fullcalc.bin, OR
  2. wine wp34sgui.exe and use SENDL, and other SEND* functions to send from virtual to physical and vv.

Thanks. I remember trying the cat command in the past, but SamBa crashed for some reason. I suppose it works with mySamba, I'll try as soon as possible!

And I had totally forgotten that the emulator can talk to the real calc. That might be the most fun way! :)
