Re: RPMint Distribution

FYI you guys might not be aware but there is an excellent open source discord client called 'Ripcord', actively developed. Its interface is minimalistic and similar to a nice IRC client, I personally would not use discord if it was not for this client: https://cancel.fm/ripcord/ The main advantage ...

Re: X11 from Windows Putty

Yes I just tried X forwarding myself and it's not working. Even if I just setup the raw ip address and port I don't see any network traffic through the tap interface that is non-ssh. Not sure why that would be. Has network display ever worked for MiNT X apps? (And I do mean xclock, xeyes, etc)

Re: RPMint Distribution

Thanks, also I kind of prefer IRC as well now that I've gotten my feet wet with discord. Why bother with discord and then have no native client that can connect to it. Not sure why I didn't think of that. I'm going to say #rpmint on freenode will be the official place.

Re: X11 from Windows Putty

You can use the ssh -X command to do display forwarding. It should setup a portforward for X11 port :10 back through the tunnel to windows (assuming your aranym, sshd config allows such) this should allow you to run xclock over the ssh tunnel and it should display on your mingw x server (assuming th...

Re: RPMint Distribution

The sharedlibs that i made are custom versions of some commonly used ones like zlib and png. But python and (also perl) sometimes wants to load arbitrary, precompiled libraries, which for example contain interface code to some other libraries. That simply cannot be done without real shared library ...

The good news is that I was solving the missing clock_gettime the same way you did. At least that means I wasn't going crazy ;)

I could but to be honest I only get enough time to work on it sporadically. For a long time not at all but now I am working on it again.

Happy days, I now have 2 working Coldfire evaluation boards as well as a working Firebee. My falcon is sadly very unreliable but I have ARAnyM. Time now to spend time developing instead of fixing systems!

The Nova VME adapters that Frank Lukas made. And that's a maybe should work. I don't know what chip it has and if there's a specific driver for it.

Thorsten, my guess is their shipping calculator is setup incorrectly. The US price for shipping is $9 USD which is fine.

It's still good. It's rare to find these under $100. Besides post office actually charges $7-$8 to ship something like this.

Re: Falcon Problems

The two things I've recently found are that if you wiggle the sdram just a tiny bit with a finger tip the system immediately reboots or locks up. So the SDRAM socket is failing. That seems ok because if you don't touch it everything is good. However the system seems to have a tremendous amount of wa...

Re: Falcon Problems

Well the issue here is that there are multiple unrelated problems: 1) IDE corruption - happens only when using CTPCI IDE. Falcon IDE causes no trouble. 2) Network corruption both through EtherNEC and EtherNAT - not solved... not understood. 3) System instability - memory violations during weird time...

Re: Falcon Problems

Yeah I think I was wrong there. Whether I use ethernat or ethernec I get increasing amounts of tons of "in error" in ifconfig. So even when it's working it's not really working properly. The RTL8319 driver doesn't work for me. It detects my card but it just hangs on/after the autonegotiation and can...

Re: Firebee: the long game?

For me it is just important to not "finish" as some point, and drive things forward. The possibilities are here, the users are still highly interested, and everything is completely Open Source, so we will never again run into some dead end. That is future prove in my opinion. It's a completely open...

Re: Firebee: the long game?

I have a firebee and I like it though it's broken right now and getting repaired. (Very early original batch). I think it represents the best choices of the moment but IMHO the future is quite clearly in FPGA. Like MiST and Vampire. I have one of each of those and I am impressed by both.

Re: Falcon Problems

My falcon stability problems were cured by removing ethernat. My ethernat stability problems were solved by reducing clock to 66mhz. Now everything is *much* better but I can still cause network issues that actually require a full power off and restart to correct with the ethernat. It seems somethin...
