RE: Hoppi 1.3.2 Release
Well, I can't install MetaKernel because I get repeated timeout errors when using Hoppi 1.3.4-rc1. It writes about 910 packets (about 55k) of MKRAM.KER and then it says ABORTED. Here's a screenshot from my iMac:

https://cl.ly/2m2W2q1N2W0F/Image%202017-...0%20PM.png

Note that screenshot shows the 1st abort (53248 bytes). On my 1st abort, the HP48 beeped and displayed "Try To Recover Memory?" I said NO to let it wipe before I tried again.

My 2nd try aborted at 56320 bytes and returned to the MTH menus.

My 3rd try aborted at 8192 bytes (odd) and returned to MTH menus.

My 4th try aborted at 97280 bytes, beeped and displayed "Try To Recover Memory?" I pressed NO, but my screen then went blank (turned on, but completely blank). Pressing ON-A-F and then NO also resulted in a blank screen. I disconnected the cable, the pressed ON-A-F, then YES, and it said Recovering Memory for a very long time. It took so long I pressed ON-A-F again and then NO, but I still got a blank screen. Frustrated to tears, I yanked the batteries. When I put them back in I said NO and got Memory Clear. Finally!

Being a true Sadomasochist I attempted it a 5th time. It aborted at 16384 bytes and returned me to the MTH menus.

Growing increasing angry, I tried a 6th time. It aborted at 10240 bytes with a beep sound and an Error box displaying within I/O that read the following:

"Error: Port Not Available"

I did not press ON-A-F prior to doing the 6th transfer, so maybe that is why?

I pressed ON-A-F then NO. I got Memory Clear. I tried it a 7th time. It aborted at 11264 bytes, and returned me to the MTH menus, so I gave up at this point.

Is it another bug in Hoppi?

Since I use a Mac, I have no idea how to go beyond Hoppi and try XMODEM instead of KERMIT, but I do know that there is nothing inherently wrong with KERMIT.

Before transferring, I followed the MetaKernel instructions exactly, using ON-A-F and then NO to wipe all memory. QUESTION: When I wipe memory that way, does that unmerge my 128k card? In other words, must I use MERGE1 after using ON-A-F? It would seem I don't have to do that, because when I wipe RAM and then type MERGE1 and ENTER, I get a Port Not Available error.

Here are my exact steps performed via my 5K iMac, Hoppi, and HP48GX (newest firmware), 128k FRAM card in Slot1 and merged:

1. ON-A-F then NO to wipe RAM.
2. RightShift (Blue) and 1 (I/O).
3. Arrow down to Name.
4. CHOOS
5. Remote PC files, then OK.
6. Arrow down to RECV.KER, then OK.
7. KGET (it will receive 10 packets without problem)
8. With Name still selected I press CHOOS again.
9. Remote PC files, then OK.
10. Arrow down to MKRAM.KER, then OK.
11. KGET (receives just over 900 packets then ABORTS for reasons unknown)

Settings within I/O:

FMT: ASC
XLAT: Newlyweds
CHL: 3
BAUD: 9600
PARITY: None

Cable is connected nicely to the Mac's USB at one end and the HP48 at the other.

Any thoughts on what the problem could be? (Batteries are still good -- no low battery warning at all.)

Thanks,

James W.
