Alright, you seem to already have the correct keymap file in DEVS:keymaps/, as you seem to be able to use the Keymap in Workbench programs. That's good (otherwise you would have had to copy it from "Extras 1.3:Devs/keymaps" to DEVS:keymaps/). Now open your Workbench disk and start the Shell. In the Shell, type: ed S:Startup-Sequence This will bring up a ...

You should start by adding your chosen commands to S/User-Startup on your boot volume. You can also refer to it as S:User-Startup; S: will redirect to the S directory on the boot volume. This will definitely work on Workbench 2.04 and later, and may also work on earlier versions too (some application software "backports" the necessary support to Workbench 1....

The Hold interpretation is the correct one for AmigaOS. In the OFS and FFS file systems, if the H,P, E, and R bits are all set then a reentrant command will automatically become resident the first time its executed. The confusion comes from the later SFS (Smart File System) which does use it as a "hide" bit despite that not being part of the original ...

I can reproduce the same behavior on my A2500 with Workbench 2.1 and using the built-in AmigaDOS "Ed" command v2.00. The critical bit is the Delete ("d") protection flag. Ed's internal functionality is to delete the file then rewrite it with the modified contents. This operation fails if the "d" bit is cleared. The Execute ("e") protection bit does not ...

Each partition on an Amiga hard drive has settings that determine whether it is bootable and whether it should be auto-mounted. It sounds like your DH3 partition is not set for auto-mounting, and the other 3 partitions are set for auto-mounting. Furthermore, you have a "Mount" command within your boot drive's S/Startup-Sequence that is causing DH3 to be ...
