Re: CosmosEx on 520 ST (no floppy)

I'm planning to go the same way but my idea was to do it more "native". I.e. put the unit into an old SF314 case and connect it via both floppy and ACSI cables (along with the power cable). This solution also requires a simple cable from the CE to the IKBD connector but still much better (...

FreeMiNT is actually a great tool to detect whether everything is OK with the computer. Much more sensitive to corrupted RAM, I/O etc.

Re: Dead Falcon

Look for Atari Falcon Service Manual at https://www.dev-docs.org/docs and look for pinout for U67 and the CPU. J20/22 jumper is correct, yes. However you can try removing it whether it leads to white blank screen. Also if helps to connect it to RGB/TV, sometimes you see screen artifacts which can gi...

Re: Possible to choose which FPU?

No, that's for Milan's 68882 FPU emulation, AFAIK. You're stuck with what the 060 and its software emulation package provides.

Re: Memory protection in Mint

Always on. To extend Joska's answer, there's another trick / reason why use the flags dialog: demos and games. They usually hang on some system vector (like VBL) which is OK if done in Supervisor but as soon as the vector is triggered you get memory violation: the routine is in application's user sp...

Re: WANTED: 260/520/1040 ST/STM

I'm so sorry to all people who had PM'ed me. I couldn't reach AF very often and/or type on a normal keyboard. In the end I have managed to obtain a nice 260ST with UK TOS 1.00. I'm still thinking about an 520ST+ but it's not a priority.

Re: not-so-stable TT

Actually the fact you made it crash during FreeMiNT is much better than with NVDI. Because, you know, FreeMiNT is open source. So you can pinpoint the exact cause. From your posts I have a feeling it's memory-related but that's too wide of course -- starting with noise on the bus and ending with bad...

So basically any 5.x will do as the base, then just the addendum needs to be scanned.

Hi, I need to do a simple task -- show how much memory I have in computer.

Re: foss-north 2018: Atari ST Free Operating Systems

Even MiNT itself suffers by this. It is no longer possible to compile MiNT on an Atari. While I agree with many points with you, I think you exaggerating here a lot. Of course it's still possible, even with the old gcc 2.95. The fact the snapshots are cross compiled is a convenience, not requirement.

I'm still working on the even more lighweight backend.
