When I try to start Geos, I get a message saying that Geos is unable to find /userdata/fonts! Whats the problem?
This could be any of several things, but it usually means that Geos is unable to find a suitable file system driver. Geos interacts with the hardware at a very low level, and doesn’t work well with anything that redirects the drives. Specifically: • WFW 32 bit file access sometimes causes problems, in which case you should disable it. • Windows NT is not compatible with Geos (v1.x and 2.x). Version 3.0 workd with NT. • Multiuser versions of DOS (DR Multiuser DOS, Concurrent DOS, Real/32, PC MOS) are not compatible with all versions of Geos. • Geos does not recognize the Win95 (aka MS-DOS 7.0) file system. This can be fixed with SETVER (v1.x and v2.x) or by adding the line ‘fs = ms4.geo’ to the [system] section of the GEOS.INI file (v2.x only.) Geos versions 2.5 and higher don’t suffer from this problem. • PC DOS 7, PC DOS 2000 and DR-DOS 7.03 no longer need SETVER loaded for Geos 3.0 to operate. • Some networked drives cause problems for Geos system files, although you can usually save
