Re: CosmosEx v1/v2 - Update

- I've (probably) fixed the 'not reading the xilinx version from new version file' (000000), but I need to test it on real device once I get home from vacation. - I've also added checking and flashing of chips firmware before linux app start, so when you write new SD image, you will also get the chi...

Re: CosmosEx v1/v2 - Update

There was a bug on Stretch and Jessie which caused the USB + ethernet to be turned off on RPi 1, this should be now fine with the Stretch image. So Stretch should work on RPi 1, 2, 3, and thus all CosmosEx devices just fine. MicroCosmos it running on RPi 2 or later, so updating that one should be fi...

Re: CosmosEx v1/v2 - Update

If something is not broken in Raspbian that would prevent it from running on older Raspberry Pi (officially there shouldn't be such thing), then using Raspbian Stretch image on the v1 device would be the way to go. But do make a back-up of your SD card before writing new image - just in case you wou...

Re: CosmoEx Screencast can it replace VME video cards

Hello Andrew, the current screencast supports the ST(e) resolutions, so if you're looking into showing just native resolution, it's already there. If you would like to have support for higher resolutions / more colors in Mega STE, it could be done, but even with native resolution the screencast slow...

Re: Cosmos not ready after boot (SCSI version attached to Falcon)

If you're able to log in (by using USB keyboard), then you should definitely try running that update command: /ce/ce_update.sh That should download the update from internet, flash the chips, unpack the newest app, and hopefully get it back to life. If you are unsure on how it will end, or if there a...

I'm not saying it's not possible or won't be done, I've just said that the current HW (without modifications) has no way to output sound :)

Re: Data corruption with CosmosEx SD card (Falcon/SCSI)

anodyne , thank you for the info, good to know! The maximum transfer size of SCSI READ(10) and WRITE(10) is 65535 sectors (2 bytes / 1 word), so that's 32 MB. So even if the TT DMA could do it, the transfers shouldn't be longer than that... dhedberg , I'm looking at the same issue with RAW (USB) dr...

Interesting idea ;) I wanted to add a beeper, but I considered it to be not very useful, so I didn't add it there.

The floppy sound could be somehow added, but you would have to add a speaker somewhere (to Raspberry?), because currently there's no sound output device from CosmosEx....
