What are some of your SpartaDOS X AUTOEXEC.BAT and CONFIG.SYS files?

I would too, every attempt to write a config.sys doesn't result in any changes to my system.

 

I tried this directly from the spartados manual, but it does nothing.

 

DEVICE \DRIVERS\RC_GR8.SYS ; TOOLKIT

DEVICE \DRIVERS\CON.SYS; TOOLKIT ;

DEVICE QUICKED

DEVICE CON64

DEVICE RAMDISK O,8

 

autoexec.bat would work enough to load the device drivers, it doesn't do other things, example, it will never set the prompt.

I can only set the prompt manually.

 

 

Manual says this "SDX carries a default text file of configuration information called CONFIG.SYS on the CAR: device. To override the use of the default configuration settings create a file called 'CONFIG.SYS' and save it as a text file in the 'MAIN' directory on the boot drive, which must be a SDFS formatted medium. "

 

Hard to imagine this the SD Card in my Side2 wasn't formatted with SDFS...the root directory is called "MAIN".  Odd that the config.sys is clearly not being read, I cannot guess what I've done wrong.

I use a D1: boot disk, in my case from a real floppy drive that has the config.sys file and needed tools on it. The HDD driver for whatever type of HDD you are using needs to be in the config.sys file, for me, I use it with SSDX cartridge from Dropcheck and piggy-backed MyIDE II HDD APT partitions. On my Incognito 800 I use a floppy boot disk in drive one when I want to bypass SDX for Sparta DOS 3.x for use with the ATOS desktop, I use the Side HDD driver in the config.sys for it along with devices, etc. needed to set up ATOS. This way I don't have to worry about re-flashing SDX with a new config.sys and once the system is booted up, D5: becomes the new Main directory for HDD leaving 1-4 open for SIO.

These are my CONFIG.SYS and AUTOEXEC.BAT

 

I put all my utilities in D6:\BIN\ and batch files in D5:\BAT\ 

 

CONFIG.SYS:-

DEVICE SPARTA OSRAM
DEVICE SIO
DEVICE ATARIDOS
DEVICE ULTIME
DEVICE JIFFY
DEVICE FATFS
DEVICE RAMDISK N,20
DEVICE DOSKEY
SET PATH=CAR:;D6:\BIN\;D5:\BAT\;D9:
SET MANPATH=D6:\MAN\

 

AUTOEXEC.BAT

SET BASIC=DN:BASIC.SAV
SET SCRDEF=2,141,0,0
SET PROMPT=D$N$P>
QUICKED.SYS
ECHO "DRIVES D5: D6: D7: D8: D9:"
ECHO "DJ: FAT=DO: RAMDISK=DN:"
