IIRC there is no passwd set for admin/root. I also have a howto for circumvent Sinix 1.x passwords...but it's at home and I'm having bad weather fun in Denmark right now. Will Be back on Thursday and have a look...

Cheers, Axel

Stefan, the guy who's sent me the SINIX disks for imaging, also remembers that there's initially no password set (just press ENTER) on a SINIX installation.

If I try to login as root or admin without a password it says "Falsche Angaben." Looking into /etc/passwd both have the same hash "cHUkyKx8z6QP." which isn't an empty password. Editing the disk image to replace the password with a blank salted DES hash does work though.

Edit: I don't know what happened then to cause a password to be set then. It was all in German so it's possible I did something wrong.

The password for that hash is "siemens" according to http://dmr.ath.cx/misc/pwd/.

EDIT: Just to be clear, the site does not reverse map hashes to passwords. "siemens" was merely my third guess and I verified it using the website.

crazyc, could you please share the combination of Sinix version, BIOS version, MMU version, chd/chs size and bootdisk you used ... I've tried various combinations to launch the sinie0/siniu0 disks, but the formatting process dies down every time, and the emulated system shuts down.

Great experience though!

Sinix 1.0 and the appropriate MMU setting (which is really a hack, there should be a io port to configure the MMU behavior but I couldn't find it) and 306,4,9,1024 c,h,s,Bps. I thought I made the omti emulation flexible enough to support any geometry but there could be issues. What geometry are you trying to use?

I tried 306-4-17, 820-6-17 and 615-4-17, but didn't specify the sector size when I created the chds.

Anyway, your parameters seem to be working ... more experiments in the morning smile

Thanks for your help!

Looks like 306-4-9-1024 is the only set of parameters that works for me ... even on 306-4-17-512 the Sinix complains that it's running out of compensation tracks.

It works if you change the default in omti5100.c to 18 spt which contradicts the datasheet and the specs for most of the drives of the era. So I don't know what is going on.

Maybe some hickup on my end although I started from a fresh git copy ... 306-4-9-1024 works fine, the 17 sector formats don't ...

btw ... does the PC-D side also benefit from the improvements (OMTI, inverse video)?
