Version 0.4 of Hebe, the KDE GUI for Hercules, was released recently.
It brings the following improvements:
New Image tool bar with actions similar to the Linux console panel
New improved, bigger status bar with CPU selector
If a suspend file is found, an option to resume is offered
Here is a screenshot of the new version, running the standard [...]
The distributed build system has been working fine for the last few days / nights, so I managed to build several packages for ARMedslack.
These are now available for download on my site:
viewvc + Pygments (browser interface for cvs and svn)
xspacewarp (Time-Trek like game for X-Windows)
inadyn (Dynamic DNS updater)
nagios + nagios-plugins (IT monitoring system)
ntop + GeoIP [...]
Jacob Dekel released the new version 1.2.0 of Hercules Studio last month.
It has, apart from some small bug fixes, a few enhancements to the GUI. The one I like most is the ability to click on the tray icon to minimize / maximize the program. I normally use Hercules to run servers I connect to [...]
On the Hercules mailing list I read about a new graphical interface for Hercules on Linux, designed for KDE 4.4.
It is called “Hebe“, after Hercules’ wife (according to Greek mythology).
Hebe is described on its homepage as:
Hebe is a new KDE 4.4 front-end GUI for the Hercules z/Arch emulator. It was designed to have a modern [...]
A new version of sdltrs, the TRS-80 emulator (originally based on xtrs) was released recently.
It adds the new “turbo mode”, that can be switched on and off with the F11 key and reorganizes the disk numbering.
I submitted the new SlackBuild script to SlackBuilds.org and pre-built packages (Slackware 32 & 64-bits + ARMedslack) are available from [...]
Today version 3.07 of Hercules, the System/370, ESA/390, and z/Architecture Emulator for Windows, Linux and Mac OSX, was released.
Since I use Hercules on an almost daily basis, I quickly downloaded the latest sources and prepared the new Slackware packages and SlackBuild script. The script is already in the “pending” queue, and the packages are being [...]
Since I was doing some tests with Slackware running on different platforms (Slack/390, Slack/390x, ArmedSlack on Qemu, etc.) I wanted to compare the performance of the different setups.
I used a (quite old) utility called nbench that was originally written in 1995 but still is a simple way to compare how processors perform, emulated or real. [...]
In preparation for a future project, I built Hercules on ArmedSlack, running in Qemu. The idea was to test the concept of running the mainframe emulator on the Arm processor.
The result was quite usable, at least for the older mainframe operating systems like MVS.
Here are some screenshots:
Starting Hercules on ArmedSlack:
The 3270 terminal connecting to the [...]
Today Carnival started her in Brazil. Well, I’m Dutch so I don’t care too much about all the festivities (it is a nice party though).
So what better to do than finally test the 64-bits version of Slack/390?
I wrote an 11-part post about installing Slack/390 on Hercules more than a year ago, and it [...]
A new version of HerculesStudio, the Hercules GUI front-end for Linux, has been released. It has some nice new features like editing your devices directly, and several new icons:
The updated SlackBuild is in the pending queue, but for those who cannot wait, pre-built packages for Slackware can be downloaded from my site.
