Re: WebOne: browsing by proxy

Is there a newer Highwire page than the links default with the package? Those are dead with the version I'd found. The old HighWire page went down with Rob's server, I am keeping it mirrored here: http://mirror.gokmase.com/highwire/ (Some of the download links are unfortunately broken, as they were...

Re: Crash error alerts not showing up with memprot=on

Thanks for testing!

I guess that your results suggests there is some combination of settings on my end causing the error to be abscent under memory protection.

Re: Crash error alerts not showing up with memprot=on

If someone with a 1-19-xxx setup has a few minutes to spare sometime and can try and see if this happens on their end or not, I would appreciate it.

Re: Why does XaAES depend on having NVDI installed?

if running high colour graphics cards you need NVDI else icons etc look crap, that my 50p worth I'm not aware of that at all. I use Mach64 in both 256c and 16-bit colours, with plain STA_VDI. Ironically, there's an opposite bug present: https://github.com/freemint/freemint/issues/171 for 256c icons...

Re: What's the difference between various MiNTs?

I would like to install a MiNT on a Falcon030 for the GBE. Just a Multitasking GEM environment. It must be possible to boot with normal TOS as default. Dual boot with Xboot3 if possible? VanillaMiNT is the right choice for me? You should be good to go with either VanillaMiNT or a bootable/preconfig...

Re: Crash error alerts not showing up with memprot=on

Yes I am aware these are different, but I admit it did not occur to me that MINT.CNF could override the MINT.INI setting.

However, I can't find either
  • DEBUG_LEVEL
  • KERN_DEBUG_LEVEL
  • debug_level
  • kern_debug_level
in my current MINT.CNF, so I am still puzzled.

Re: Crash error alerts not showing up with memprot=on

From what I can tell, that should be the case.

I am running 1-19-cur from 2020-05-03 and in c:\mint\1-19-cur\mint.ini I can see the following:

DEBUG_LEVEL=1
DEBUG_DEVNO=2

Should I be changing anything for this to work that is exclusive to memory protection mode?

Crash error alerts not showing up with memprot=on

Hi, After updating my very old mint binaries earlier this year (my binaries now are from 2020-05-03), one thing seemed to have changed. With memory protection enabled, I started to notice that if a process was shut down due to misbehaving (one has to assume), it just crashed in silence - no error al...

Ok, the first one is easy: My primary wish would be to have network support built into Hatari - allowing access to the host network card through STiK or Mintnet API.

Re: Screen sometimes going momentarily black when using a RGB->SCART cable - An attempt of an explanation

Logic says that the Schottky diode (with a lower volts drop - 0.1V as against 0.6V for a normal silicon diode like the 1N4148) is actually the better choice Ok, noted. Then the only thing left to play with is the capacitor. In the versions of SCART RGB => ST cable that was suggested by Ian Stedman ...

Re: Screen sometimes going momentarily black when using a RGB->SCART cable - An attempt of an explanation

Quite update #2:

Connecting more of the GND pins on the SCART connector did not change anything.
The flickering is seemingly within individual scan lines, so perhaps the switching time of the diode is a factor here?

I will replace the Schottky diode with the suggested 1N4148 diode next.

That is, the picture frame does not move, but there a small cluster of flickering on screen, possibly wande...
