I tried your previous release and came upon a problem, we use
'rspf mode vc' locally, (we're still a small network), and discovered
that when a full routing update was occurring the mailbox promptly
replied the incoming ax.25 connection .. Could you perhaps make thee
'mailbox jumpstart' configurable to allow such operation ??
Well, I have the dubious honor of answering my own question! Not only do you
increase the max ints number in pktdrvr.h, but, as the comment says once you
understand it better, you must add drivers to the pkdrv.asm file, add the functi
prototypes to pktdrvr.h, and add pointers to the drivers to the Pkint (Pkdrv?, I
not sitting in front of THAT computer!) array of driver int pointers in pktdrvr.
To those in charge of the code, an extra line or two beside the max_pkt(or whate
it was) equate in pktdrvr.h would be helpful in the future to those as unfamilia
as I was with adding packet driver slots! On my first reading, I took it to mea
had to change the number there from 3 to whatever, to do the job, not that doing
that was just the beginning! ;-)
Anyway, it's solved, and I have all 4 drivers running happily!
