Re: MSA/ST image mounting file system for Mint?

Actually, it's more work than just a device driver. The main problem is that you don't have, uhm, a device. So you need to create a virtual one, which would somehow accept the MSA / ST / DIM files (perhaps during opening such device) which would in turn create something like /dev/device/<index or f...

Re: rsync in SpareMINT

This is a known issue with rsync on mint. I get the feeling it has completed the job, it just never exits. That's correct. Alan Hourihane sent me a fixed binary years ago where this problem was solved, but it doesn't look like the patch has been distributed. The SpareMiNT rsync is still non-functio...

Re: Phantom accelerator (by Phanatic).

As micro said. The device is extremely simple. One 50Mhz crystal oscillator, 74F00 for 50/32Mhz switching and one 74F04 as a clock output buffre and 32Mhz to 500Hz clock divider on the main device and 74F04 + SN7404N on the clock patch. Are the schematics available? The circuit sounds very simple, ...

Re: STe - Bad DMA Chip

Yes, that is possible. Both STE's where closure and We Were fails have the "good" DMA, and (so far) all STE's where these demos works on even with the HC CPU have the "bad" DMA. If this pattern can be confirmed it's bad news for future 68000-based accelerators. But too early to ...

Re: STe - Bad DMA Chip

I must remind you that this happens on two different STE's. Same problem on both - works fine with original CPU, does not work with HC CPU. Two different machines, two different drives (or three to be more precise, as I have recently replaced my drive with an original one) and two different disks.

Re: STe - Bad DMA Chip

Not sure if you can figure out what's happening with only a binary, but I guess /troed can easily figure exactly where {closure} crashes on the HC. It would be extremely interesting to find out what's happening, and how/if it can be worked around.
