There is very little information on getting the emulator to work, and even less info on getting the nav software to run..

But once decompiled, it looks to me, like that is indeed an OS inside the navboot file - just trying to figure out how to get it working is that part I was having issues with... Lots and lots of googling got me to this point so far.

If you do some searching you'll find that the os needs to be in the dd directory... but so far, ive yet to get it working...

Keep plugging along guys and post any developments you may have.

Can I throw in a cheeky early request for automatic night mode when turning on the dash illumination? Does it come accross the K-Bus?

Thanks again.

I also tried os9exec for linux and for win.

This is the result when run os9App.exe under win :

<snipped both examples>

That's because you need one of:

- an actual OS9 disk
- a file in your base directory called dd that contains an image of
a working OS9 disk
- a native (i.e. 'doze or Linux) filing system that contains a copy
of a working OS9 filing system and based on a directory called dd in
your base directory.

os9exec consists of a 68000 software emulation and code to emulate an OS9 kernel. The rest of the bits needed to make a working OS9 system are all run inside this environment and, as I said before, are all either OS9 executables (including the shell) put where they normally live or the configuration files, libraries, etc which muse also be put in the usual places.
I can download tOS9 development toolkit ? or i must order it ?

Talk to Allan Bateiger (aka OS9-Al), who's a US agent, or to Radisys (RadiSys) to find the nearest agent to yourself. They also have a free evaluation CD.

Hmmm, Sorry to resurect an old post, but...

I've just had a small step forward with this and managed to get hold of an os9000 microwave disc image that "boots" the os9app into an unix/linux type shell.

os9000 disc image, Here

Download and then unzip, then make a copy of the mw.dsk and rename it to dd (thats it just dd), have it in the same dir as the os9app.exe and then run os9app.exe (in a cmd window).

I've only had a small play with it but it could be a small step forward.

Commands found so far:-

Load, mdir, ls and init (to quit).

Dir.

I don't know what this all means, but it sounds promising.

Well hopefully it means that we can "load" the decompiled nav modules into the emulator shell and mod stuff.

It looks like the disc image is missing a few tools ("ls dd", is empty), so it a baby step.
