Somehow, I missed this as a ‘beta’ driver for the last public release of SIMH.
What makes the 68000 version of CP/M different from the i8080 version is that it was coded in C. Â And of course 68k CP/M suffered the same problem every other processor incompatible ‘same os’ OS has ever suffered which is no applications. Â But that is when I remembered the COM, which started out it’s life as an 8080 emulator for the 68000. Â With a LOT of creative googlling, I managed to find the source, mysteriously labelled 8088M.ZIP. Â I also found a binary here. But unfortunately that is as far as I got. Â I haven’t managed to figure out a way to inject files into the SAGE CP/M IMD disk images.
So this is where I’m stuck, and this is my call for help. Â If anyone knows how to get files in/out of these IMD files give me a shout. Â For anyone interested in 68k CP/M this is your chance to get it running.
The one funny thing I found in a hex editor of the disk image was this:
Never mind, me and a friend of mine (hi Lorenzo!) got the disk image thing figured out!
Have you tried MESS’s wimgtool? It’s a bit unstable but it supports a wide range of disk image formats
No, but I’m going to try it now!
I should have guessed…
$ wine imgtool.exe identify CPM68K12.IMD
wine: Unhandled page fault on read access to 0x00000000 at address 0x0 (thread 0026), starting debugger...
let me boot into windows…
imgtool & winmgtool are no longer distributed for some reason. the imgtool.exe I found crashes too under windows 7. Oh well, thanks anyways.
