Can not save programs back to floppy drive

Post by promisemachining » Tue Oct 10, 2017 2:07 pm

I am not able to save my Intercon or edited programs back to the floppy drive. I am getting a run time error message. Programs will load up from the floppy but I can not save them back.
I have tried to reload CNC10 v1.51 with the files posted here.
I insert the floppy disc and press F7 then I press F2. Then I get an error message.
The message I am getting is /cnc.root/a/install.sh does not exist.

Insert a known-good floppy disk with known contents in the floppy drive.

Press Alt-F6 for a command prompt window.

Enter the following command:

ls -l /cncroot/a/

That is, in lower case letters, "LS -L /CNCROOT/A/"

You should see a listing of files on the floppy disk.

If this is the disk you have been trying to install software from (using F7/Utility -> F2/Update), do you see in the file listing one named "install.sh"?

Note that file names in Linux are case sensitive. "INSTALL.SH" or "Install.sh" won't work.

I followed the your instructions. I tried it with 2 floppy discs, and got the same error response (see attached picture)
I then went to file opps, delete and selected the a drive floppy and it showed me the two files on the disc. It seem to be finding and reading the floppy in some applications and can't find the path in others.

I was also able to run a report and save it to the floppy disc. I am attaching the report. Maybe that will tell you something.

Try it with the spaces.

There has to be at least one space between "ls" and "-l", and at least one more space between "-l" and "/cncroot/a/".

Ok, Thank you. I didn't pick up on the spaces in the font it printed in.
That worked. It listed my files on the floppy, attached picture. Do you see any thing wrong with those files?
It is showing the install.sh.txt, could that be the problem? If so how do I get rid of the txt on the end

I got the file extension figured out. Did the update. Computer rebooted,
Looks like I may still have an issue with the file utility, file opps. I can save an intercon program to the floppy but not a g code program that I loaded with the floppy originally.
I will have to study the manual on the procedure for exporting files before I know foe sure.
Thank you for your help.
