Not sure what you mean by "very" but if a nice looking Falcon goes for about 1000 EUR and shipping goes for about 40-60 EUR, depending on the class, I would say it is still a good investment. ;-)

Re: Firebee: the long game?

As vido wrote, the issue is not a lack of goals or wish lists, but of developers. It has been discussed many times, even here. From my, developer's, point of view the biggest issue is the lack of anything even resembling a development attitude - on one hand you get statements like "no, we are ...

Re: Falcon Pal mobo and clock Patch owners

First I would make sure your CT60 isn't damaged by trying it out in a different Falcon. Messing with clock patches shouldn't be your first step. But yes, I have seen and had all sorts of clock patches with CT60s, there isn't a definite answer whether you should or shouldn't replace the one you have ...

Re: CTPCI and Realtek 8139D

One OT question about mint-848.prg... must I have it by this name or can I rename it ? ( i.e. does it uses that 848 to find the mint system folder ?) I uses the old-school installation method. Yes, it's a kind of protection against messing your working system up. :) But that applies only to mint.pr...

That reminds me that I should really include this driver into upstream. IIRC I wanted to include most of the calls in the freemint kernel interface but Alan was against it for some reason. Nah, what the hell. I have merged it into upstream as is -- clearly it works for somebody better than the orig...

Re: LIbrary path for linker

I either did not understand Thorsten's answer or Jury's question ;) but I think gcc doesn't behave like that.

I'm lazy to look into the sources but it makes sense that the default picture is stored there. So if you recompile your own TOS image, sure.

You know what is even more fun? Trying to verify the build using the gcc test suite. :) I remember my attempts to get it running properly but couldn't (failing on some shell magic, IIRC). Maybe it has changed over time.

Thanks for your test evil. The demo should be all right as it works on SV-less 060 setup but just to be totally sure I redownloaded it, couldn't spot any crc error.

No, the problem is there no matter what configuration but this is could be a nice visual hint -- for instance, if you do see the demo's output on both and I don't, it's clearly something wrong on my side. If you don't see DVI output and demo doesn't crash, it's still something wrong on my side. :) S...
