Re: VanillaMiNT has finally been updated

You only need a kernel with builtin-support for the hostfs for that. ...and you need to either run fVDI or figure out a way to make NVDI work reliably when started after mint.prg. Neither is done in VanillaMiNT. I dont think that Hatari epxlicitly sorts them alphabetically, it just returns whatever...

Re: New board: MonSTer

So could someone explain to me how an ST can see 12mb when it does not have a 2+ tos in it? If you by that mean TOS 1.x then it can't. You need TOS 2.x, EmuTOS, MagiC or MiNT to use RAM above 4Mb. Does this board allow the ram to be accessed at primary ram? or 4mb primary + TT ram? Not sure what yo...

Re: VanillaMiNT has finally been updated

No, VanillaMiNT can't be located on the host filesystem on ARAnyM either. You need a special kernel and a custom boot process for that, VanillaMiNT is not designed for that. I suspect MiNT can run from the host filesystem on Hatari if you compile it with support for TOSFS. However, this is omitted b...

Re: VanillaMiNT has finally been updated

christos is right, VanillaMiNT must be located on a disk image and not on the host filesystem.

Re: VanillaMiNT has finally been updated

Can you describe exactly how you installed VanillaMiNT? VanillaMiNT is neither made for nor tested on Hatari (or any other emulator) so I have no idea how it behaves there. If Hatari works like a real TT or Falcon then VanillaMiNT should work when installed as described in the instructions. If it do...

Re: no MegaSTE ram expansion over 4MB ?

You are right, there is no sub-board for this. I must be confusing it with some other MSTE-expansion.

Re: no MegaSTE ram expansion over 4MB ?

IIRC there is a small sub-board that's installed in one of the PAL-sockets to make the MonSTEr work correctly with blitter on the MSTE.

To my knowledge it works fine with the blitter, 16MHz and Ultrasatan. I don't have an MSTE myself, nor do I have a Supercharger.

Re: no MegaSTE ram expansion over 4MB ?

I appreciate the link to the MonSTer page, but info there is a little scetchy. SO the MonSTer board is 1. IDE interface for 2 drives? 2. Flash TOS holder for up to 4 images, and 3. 8mb of Ram that can be used at TT ALT ram. Four drives, but otherwise correct :) But please note that there are some l...

Re: no MegaSTE ram expansion over 4MB ?

The AdSpeed can't work with the MonSTer (or even a plain IDE-interface) because it use the same register address as the Falcon IDE ports. It use a large addressing space ($f00000-$f5ffff I believe) for it's control registers so it might interfere with other things in the MonSTer as well.

Re: SMSPlus for the Atari falcon

Thanks for giving it a try. I think that you downloaded the first buggy build. I noticed it did that on Hatari too after i enabled borders... (which i then promptly fixed) Tried the fixed version. I get a black screen, followed by a cyan screen with some purple, vertical stripes. Can you post a ROM...

You can start by tracing the datalines from the SIMM sockets, then verify continuity.

Re: How to install Thing desktop?

Yes, 1.27 is the last release from Thomas Binder.

There is also 1.50 but the last time I checked it was extremely unstable. I have not followed that project so I don't know the current state of it.

Tryed MMU support on TT & Falcon-CT60 with EasyMint. Result: More crashs with applications. It's nice to have, but benefit in MiNT is small. The fact that applications are crashing with memory protection enabled is a sure sign that memory protection has a huge benefit. Or a sign that your setup...

Re: Found a weird board in my Atari - HELP please!

I believe this is an adapter used for the early singlesided floppy drives. Your ST has probably been upgraded with a doublesided drive since the adapter is disconnected.

Geneva does not work properly on 040 and 060 from my experience. Something that could be fixed when the source is released. As for MiNT compatibility... Well, it wasn't exactly stable back when Dan actively developed Geneva, and MiNT has evolved a lot since then. I would not expect it to work at all...
