OS3.9 comes with ViNCEd that is way better than KingCON. Unless you spend a lot of time booting into first CLI (booting without startup-sequence) and want more than commodore CON in the kickstary, you are way better off using ViNCEd.


I think I'm using VinCEd now... or maybe it is an earlier version?  There isn't a tab-complete feature in the version I'm using, and I'm lazy.  That feature is key.  :)

Something to be aware of on A3000/A4000, BB3/4 installs card.resource which will make your machine crash randomly or during boot.

This is not supposed to be there for big box machines and it is only for A1200 or A600.  Hopefully some day this will be fixed.


Good to know.  Thanks.

ViNCEd has tab completion (and way configurable too), so maybe you're not using it. It also has menus and tons of other things. Look in sys:System for something named Shell VNC, or just type "newcli VNC:" to open a new shell in ViNCEd.

And in the mean time not install BB3 and 4?

No, just remember to remove card.resource if you have an A2000/A3000/A4000.  

I  bet that many people have had the same problem, "I installed BB3/4 and  now my machine is crashing, it's junk etc," but assuming they didn't  have some other problem, this is likely the cause.

Actually, it hasn't contained any card.resource for years.
