I've tried Linux distributions for PCs in the past and it turned out to be very time consuming to get to work, so maybe I'll just settle for the terminal commands as this isn't something I do every day. Maybe a script could be made to streamline the process and safeguard against selecting the wrong drive/disk.Joska
: you suggested the following commands when having just one CF-card reader:
Code: Select all
dd bs=1m if=/dev/rdisk8 of=cf_clone.img
dd bs=1m if=cf_clone.img of=/dev/rdisk8
I think Frank Lukas tried to explain it, but I couldn't understand what "synthesized" meant.
So when you list the available drives (diskutil list
") there are often multiple results such as:/dev/disk3/disk3disk 3s1disk3s2
An estimated guess would be that "disk3
" is the actual physical hard disk drive/SSD/CF card or whatever while "disk3s1
" and "disk3s2
" are the individual partitions on that disk?
So I'm guessing that if I recognize the disk name/disk size I would use:
dd bs=1m if=/dev/rdisk3
dd bs=1m if=cf_clone.img of=/dev/rdisk3
Will there be any alert to when I should change disks?
Is "cf_clone.img" a temporary disk image file which will automatically be deleted when written to the new CF card?Frank Lukas
: Is AtariX a new Atari ST emulator for the OSX platform, or an environment which allows MagiCMac to be used with modern Macs/more current OSX versions? I couldn't come up with much searching with Google or other search engines except this German thread
(and my German isn't good enough to fully understand it).
I also found a page about Magic Mac X
but it only seems to work up to OSX 10.4.11.
