Re: Beginning of very long journey

Without looking at the auction, for the 3 IC groups of significance isn't the cost more around 8K? It is, if you are happy with buying ~100 pieces of each for your own usage. Our idea was to buy all of his stock (he has more than listed) for a more discounted price (to cover our risk of not being a...

Re: Beginning of very long journey

I was in touch with Steve about those SDMA/Combel/Videl packs but it led to nowhere. He seems to believe that he can still score more than $15,000 USD on those in this life time so I let it go.

Ah, sorry, I thought you are talking about the preconfigured snapshot:

Make sure to only use the Milan-relevant parts.
FreeMiNT takes care of that. No need to disable anything, except if you want to save memory. The snapshot is configured in such way that only milan-compatible modules are loaded (if not, it's a bug and report it).

Re: HD Driver : ext2 in new Drive

This simply doesn't sound right. If H: is an ext2 partition and it's accessed as a FAT one, something is terribly wrong with your setup. Perhaps introduced during the copy, maybe you have some symbolic links all over the place and if you use just the second drive, they point to a wrong location. I w...

Re: Two ideas for hatari

Why do you think Hatari devs would reject a realistic floppy access sound? IMHO it's a cool feature, as seen in SainT at least and it's great.

Are you sure that the partition names are still the same after the swap? I.e. that you are not forcing "dos" on an ext2 partition?

Re: Quarantine and un-useful project

I can make a few tests later but IIRC, I was able to transfer ~300 MB files without any problem with simple ftp with the SV+Svethlana. So I'm a bit sceptical whether mintnet is to blame here.

Btw, I guess it is obvious, but you can't have files bigger than 2 GB on Atari.

Well, from your description it looks like a connector issue. If you really want I can plug EtherNAT into CT60E but I expect it to be working (since SV + Svethlana does).

Even if it was, the speed gain would be negligible. Usually you run NVDI with FreeMiNT, i.e. except (X)BIOS there is no part of ROM left in use (GEMDOS = FreeMiNT kernel, AES = XaAES, VDI = NVDI, Desktop = TeraDesk/Thing/etc).

Re: TT FAQ: "Wait states off MCU msb (7) never set" diagnostics message => Harmless

Since the tested TTs ranged from very old (daughter board version) to one of the last board revisions produced, I wonder if there ever were any Rev. F MCUs in the wild. How do you indentify the revision? Most TTs have "C301225-001A" on the MCU, does this mean rev. A or one of the first two by Natio...

That looks like a patched up MK-II board? My MK-II SCSI piggy back adapter does not have the resistor packs. It may or may not work. I don't see why you would need/want to have a termination in the middle of the SCSI bus? Perhaps the added resistor packs are supposed to compensate for the lack of t...

Re: WIP: ScummVM-Lite Atari

Yup, IKBD hooks is the only non-clean thing which you should need the Super flag for. Everything else (incl. double/triple buffering) can be done in user code with zero Super/Supexec calls.

So programming in FreeMiNT + memory protection actually makes you a better programmer. ;-)
