Re: External hard drive issue with ST (can't write to drive after power down)

Sounds like the old STE DMA problem... Which DMA chip does your STE have? C025913-38 is the "bad" one (not working correctly in STE), C398739-001A is the good one.

Re: rsrc_saddr where are some examples

So when managing multiple resources, you have to save at least indices 5-8 after rsrc_load(),... Yes, you are completely right. I should have looked at my code instead of trusting my memory :) However, if you *do* call rsrc_free(), you have to make sure that those variables are set up correctly, ot...

I need to rethink that once again, or just make 2 different kits: - One for them who don't want to modify case (no additional holes etc) - And another one for those who may accept some holes. Why not have the DVI connector on a separate board, with a cable to a simple header on the SV? Then the use...

Re: Apollo Team announces developing of Vampire standalone version to run as AMIGA and ATARI ST

Yes, I forgot MagiC. MagiC can boot from ROM and thus satisfies ThorstenOtto's personal definition of a real OS ;) This is a silly discussion. The fact that MiNT does not replace everything in TOS does not mean it's not a "proper" OS. Does that mean that TOS+NVDI is not a "proper"...

I think you have misunderstood. What does rsrc_saddr have to do with multiple RSC files? The answer is "Nothing".

Re: rsrc_saddr where are some examples

An easy way to deal with multiple RSC-files in AES is to do something like this: 1. Load the first RSC. 2. Get the pointer(s) to the tree(s) in that RSC using rsrc_gaddr. Save these pointers. 3. Load the second RSC. 4. Get the pointer(s) to the tree(s) in that RSC using rsrc_gaddr. Save these pointe...

Re: Apollo Team announces developing of Vampire standalone version to run as AMIGA and ATARI ST

But this "philosophy" was introduced only later. When Mint was part of MultiTOS, there was no "underlying OS"; Mint itself was the OS that had to do all initialization itself. This is not correct. MiNT has always relied on TOS to set up and access the hardware. In the early days...

Re: Apollo Team announces developing of Vampire standalone version to run as AMIGA and ATARI ST

Thats only true for 040/060. For 030, it *will* do the setup itself. And i think the only reason for this is that at the time it was written, 040 primarly meant Milan/Hades, where there had more to be done than just setting up a page translation tree. The reason for doing this was to *not* have to ...

Re: Apollo Team announces developing of Vampire standalone version to run as AMIGA and ATARI ST

First of all, FreeMiNT is not the only piece of software that would have to be adapted. TOS also use the PMMU. The reason FreeMiNT works on the Amiga (with or without 080) is that the hardware is already set up by the booting OS. This is the case on Ataris as well. On any PMMU-equipped Atari FreeMiN...

In that case you have to use both an additional port on your Atari AND a driver. Yes, it will work but... A much better solution is to make the mouse adapter an IKBD device that connects between the computer and keyboard.
