I have aquired a problem with my RiscPC + RiscOS 4.02 caused by what
I guess might be the !Boot structure.
The machine boots up and looks O.K. BUT if I drag a file
anywhere BEFORE I launch an application the machine hangs without any kind
of message. If I launch any application before I drag a file all is O.K.
As soon as I start to drag the file the transfer icon appears but freezes
before it leaves the window. Sometimes it gets a bit further than others
before it happens but it never gets outside the window.
Recent History (What did I change) :-
I am not implying that it is in any
way responsible for the problem but it started just after I had installed
GemPrint. It put two files in !Boot.choices.boot.Tasks (can't remember the
names exactly something like !!RunprintersGp and !RunPrintersG). I think
it was the double pling one which generated an error message saying a file
could not be found. I thought the "!!" a bit unusual, also it had a ".^."
bit in it. Thinking I had found the problem, I deleted these two files -
but no - its still there.
The hang up is not a big problem but it sure is annoying.
Does anyone have any ideas how to sort this without re-installing
and re-constructing !Boot.
Any help will be most gratefully received.
Many Thanks in Advance Bob.
