"all their combinations" ???
I started from scratch from the zip picker, because I wanted to
minimize version incompatibilities left over from my previous use
The zip picker picked alleg312.zip, but I tried several of the
indicated ftp sites and none of them had it (a few days ago).
So I used alleg311, which has the spilled register problems (and
fixed them by hand). *That* isn't supporting all (version)
combinations. I wouldn't expect such combination to be
As I mentioned, FREEBS12 has even more spilled register
problems. I guess I can try rebuilding it on an older
DJGPP install on one of my other computers. But I hate
that sort of stab-in-the-dark approach to problem
My QEMM is 7.02.
Aside from the spilled register problems, I have no way
of knowing which other problems are version incompatibilities.
I assume other people are successfully using FREEBB12. Having
tried a few computers and OS's etc., I don't think I have a
specific hardware or software problem in my own computers
that is causing all the trouble. I'm just guessing a version
incompatibility (CWSDPMI vs FREEB, or something) because I
don't know what else to guess.
