Re: environment space

Hi Yiquan Qi -

The solution to this problem is to increase the environment space for the Ferret application.  To do this:

Modify the Environment for a Specific MS-DOS Program

   To increase the default environment space for a specific MS-DOS program, follow these steps:

       1.Right-click the MS-DOS program icon (In this case the Ferret icon), and then click Properties.

       2.On the Memory tab, type or click the number of kilobytes (KB) the program requires in the Initial Environment box, and then click OK.

         NOTE: The maximum amount of memory you can allocate for an MS-DOS program is 4096 KB.

That taken from a Microsoft support page at:

Hi, everyone,After my pc's system was changed  from windows 98 to windows me yesterday, my ferret refused to work. The problem is that when I run ferret, the following  appear:out of environment space******************Warning******************
You must set your X server DISPLAY variable
Use the Control Panel, double click on System, click
on the Environment tab and add a DISPLAY variable.
Or, set it at the bash command line before starting Ferret.
See the README file for more information
Setting DISPLAY variable to default value of ":0.0"
Available commands:
    finder (Windows version of Fgo, Fdata, etc.)
Type help after starting ferret to load your default Web browser
with the Ferret documentation home page
 ferret.sh: exec: bash: not found
How to deal it? Thanks in advance.Yiquan QI---------------------------------------------------
