I am trying to run JrComm 1.02a on my Amiga 1000. When I launch the software by double clicking the workbench icon, i get an alert telling me I need the 'explode.library V4+'. I have placed this library in my LIBS: folder but JrComm still won't launch. Interestingly, if I open a shell and launch JrComm from the command line, it will work fine. After that initial run, I can double click the icon and JrComm will continue to launch just fine. I suspect the library remains in memory after the first run - so I figured I could just 'pre-load' the library during my startup-sequence.
So, can an Amiga library be pre-loaded and if so, what command/syntax/reagents are required for this spell?
In case it matters, the system is an A1000 kicked with KS1.3 from floppy and Workbench 1.3.2. I have a 2Mb Starboard with the StarDrive module installed and connected to a ZuluSCSI as my hard drive. The StarDrive did not support auto-boot, so I boot from a floppy that mounts the HD and then re-assigns all the important folders to the HD (just like it was 1987 woot!). The only weird bit is I install Workbench to the hard drive in a sub-folder named "Workbench". That means SYS: is assigned to DH0:Workbench and not simply DH0: - which holds true for all assignments. For example, the LIBS: folder resolves to DH0:Workbench/libs (not DH0:libs). Maybe that's why JrComm doesn't find the library, although (for me) it doesn't explain why it works from the command prompt.
