• Linux problem with bterm

    From Sean Rima@2:263/1 to All on Wednesday, June 02, 2021 00:12:10
    I download the linux/intel version on my Mate Linux laptop, now the laptop is an old Apple. I uncompressed the file and trying to run it says:

    No such file or directory

    same with btermcfg

    All the files in the archieve are there

    Hi Sean,

    I download the linux/intel version on my Mate Linux laptop, now the laptop is an old Apple. I uncompressed the file and trying to run it says:

    No such file or directory

    same with btermcfg

    All the files in the archieve are there

    I'm not sure I can help you, Sean... but here is some information about how I have it installed here.

    Path to bterm program:
    /home/bbbs/term/bterm
    (good distance from main bbbs install <G>)

    Command to start bterm in that directory:
    /home/bbbs/term/bterm$ ./btelnet

    I've seen some folks talk about starting a virtural box to run linux software on an Apple.. perhaps that might work? I have never tried that though.

    Take care,
    Janis

    No such file or directory

    same with btermcfg

    I've seen that when trying to run a 32 bit application (like BBBS or BTerm) on a 64 bit OS without 32bit support.

    All the files in the archieve are there

    Did you know that bterm is a copy of bbbs? What I did was copy my bbbs over the
    old bterm and bcfg4 over the old btermcfg and that's what I use here.

    I am just wondering is my Linux install missing a lib. May message Kim direct on it

    Ahhh that sounds like the error. I will try the 64bit file as you suggest

    Yep, it does work great.

    Maybe b will release a new bbbs and/or bterm one day, but for now that works.

    I hope so. 64 bit is the way to go :)
