    There isn't a "Synchronet Control Panel" for Linux. The closest thing would be the gtkmonitor project - and yes, it looks different than the Synchronet Control Panel (which is only designed/built for Windows).

    I figured that might be why, though I was curious to see if Marisa's was an ASCII-based monitor.

    I have Linux on my 'server' machine (which runs Plex and a VM for my BBS), though I opted to have a GUI on it.. I installed Linux Mint with the Xfce GUI, which is a lightweight GUI - I know it adds more overhead, but the machine works fine and it has plenty of RAM for what I use it for.

    I'm not sure what you mean by "DOS based kinda system".. And Linux is significantly different behind the scenes than DOS. You couldn't just take a DOS program and run it on Linux - You'd need DOSEmu or some other emulator.

    I've heard of people getting Synchronet to work on Raspberry Pi systems, but it would require rebuilding Synchronet on it. And from what I've heard, I don't think you'd be able to run DOS doors on it.

    I have made a raspian iso with Synchronet 3.17 and Mystic pre installed.
    and I believe there is a DOS emulator for the raspberry PI so it might be able to run DOS doors, I havent tried that, it does have the synchronet DOORs though.

    I seem to remember hearing from others that there are problems running DOS doors on Raspberry Pi systems. The main issue is that it has to not only emulate DOS, but it also has to emulate an x86 processor. When the system already has an x86 processor, it's easier to do.

    brief test though and I have no idea how to setup a door in a dosbox executed within a unix bbs. x86 emulation on an ARM cpu doesn't seem to be a problem and
    should be fast enough for most BBS doors.

    dosbox has known issues with multi-node/user doors (doesn't support DOS share.exe-type file/record locking). I don't think those issues have been addressed. That said, some single-node/user doors may run okay so long as the ownership of the virtual COM/UART can be passed between DOS programs within a single instance of dosbox. These are all big unknowns (for me).

    You should be able to make either QEMU or DOSBOX work, though you won't be able to have any DOS doors in multi-user mode, it just won't work with either QEMU or DOSBOX (I guess you could use qemu if you did a network share on the pi, and then had each respective dos instance connect to that)... both are complex setups.

    Alternatively, you could setup an account for door party, and just defer to the remote service for your door usage.

    and Windows pro also can add
    support for Windows containers
    + docker. And there's
    experimental support for Linux
    containers with docker on
    Windows that's a more direct
    integration with Hyper-V.

    Docker desktop for Windows can
    do either Linux containers or
    Windows containers. It's
    actually running under the
    Windows hypervisor in a minimal
    vm, with some decent
    integration. But it's single
    user.

    There's also Windows subsystem
    for Linux 2 which can do a lot.

    I use docker desktop at work,
    where I'm Windows tethered.

    Yup, you can run docker on a
    lot of OSes.

    On linux, its native, on
    other OS's, under the covers
    it's linux on KVM
    (IIRC).

    I develop on a MAC using
    docker containers.


    https://www.docker.com/products
    /docker-desktop

    In Windows it's Hyper-V, in Mac
    they have something similar.

    Only thing to be aware of is
    volume mounts are not direct
    and best not to do a database
    with a desktop volume, it won't
    be pretty. It's actually doing
    an fs sync in Mac and Windows
    for desktop volumes.

    Nope, Hyper-V is virtual machines, which is not docker containers.

    I develop very heavy database I/O on MAC desktops and it works well. Not fast, I agree, but good enough for development.

    What? this isn't even remotely true. It was based off Minix. Linus has/had
    nothing to do with X11 or XFree86/X.Org Quit making shit up.

    He also
    believed that the OS and its software shall always be free and be based on an open source community similar to Synchronet.

    He release it under the GPL after seeing a speech/presentation by Richard Stallman. (Stallman being a giant piece if shit is a discussion for another thread) He had NO plans on Linux being as big as it is today. His first post about it literally said "I'm doing a operating system (just a hobby, won't be big and professional like gno) for 386(486) AT clones."


    By the way Linux was named
    after his name Linus since he started it all and has boomed over the years in a huge way.

    Somewhat correct. It was mash of "Linus" and "Minix"

    A lot of businesses rely on Linux as well.

    Yeah, if you can't fit the entire 80x25 edit window in your browser, then ecWeb would be a much better
    experience. Heck, ecWeb is better for most uses.

    Funny enough, I can't seem to login from my phone using ecweb... not sure how it works... for now, using a desktop with local connection over ssh tunnel.

    Which version of ecWeb? Works for me w/ecwebv4 at web.synchro.net. There's a "Log in" option in the upper-right drop-down (hamburger) menu.

    Latest from github... tbh, don't really like the UX... after I get the telnet setup working the way I like again, will probably try to replicated the message at a time (newscan) type interface, or a three pane reader resembling email/nntp.

    Mainly wanting to try to reuse some of the web services ec wrote if I can.

    Rob,

    The chicken or the egg?

    I usually prefer chicken.

    Both...nuggets and eggs. Then, let's add things like biscuits, gravy, tomatoes, ham, bacon, sausage, pork chops, etc.

    As Janis Kracht notes "Even Sysops have to eat". <G>

    Nope, Hyper-V is virtual machines, which is not docker containers.

    Docker Desktop for Windows does emphatically *USE* Hyper-V, it's a Linux Virtual environment, where the actual containers run... similar for MacOS.

    I develop very heavy database I/O on MAC desktops and it works well.
    Not fast, I agree, but good enough for development.

    Again, using a volume mount to the host OS in mac and windows is
    significantly slower, if it performs good enough for you, great.

    That's just a theory though.

    If you use it with a phone, you'll see what I was doing... was
    definitely NOT manually word wrapping at 20 something characters.
