Re: The last MIST

It surprises me that people now start to delete their repositories. But that's their choice. Open source also means that you are free to do that. Actually, not quite - when you have released binaries under GPL, you are supposed to have sources available if a user asks for them. Anyways - I also wan...

Re: The last MIST

Everybody wants Open Source only nobody makes a profit, except for the people who want to enrich themselves on the basis of the work of others. Sounds like open source projects are not for you. I don't know what license you have released your cores under, but it would be funny if you have chosen on...

Re: The last MIST

There is something called "market saturation", there is a limit for how many are interested in such a system, and I would not be surprised if that limit has been reached. And then there are always the crowd who never can afford whatever is current and who are always waiting for the "n...

Re: reading sd card under linux

You need a kernel with AFFS support, and that's not really something that is typically enabled by default. To check if your kernel already support AFFS, you can look in the meta file /proc/filesystems, that have all supported filesystems listed up... # grep affs /proc/filesystems affs If your kernel...

Re: Wifi

Something in wifi framework locks the whole system till it finish initial connection phase, so i cannot even use keyboard in menu core some time after boot. Guess I am lucky, since don't experience this, I can use the keyboard at once to browse the menu. I insert power, it takes maybe 2-3 seconds f...

Re: Building Linux kernel

Anyways, found my way around uboot, added "loop.max_part=8" to boot command line, and now I can mount partitions from MBR and RDB image files: do you mean you couldn't mount partitions on loop devices before? Correct - could only mount "filesystem" images. With a filesystem smal...

Re: Building Linux kernel

I went by other way which should be faster and less resource consuming than initrd/initramfs OK - still may be useful. With a filesystem small enough, entire linux filesystem could be the initrd, built into the kernel image :) Anyways, found my way around uboot, added "loop.max_part=8" to...

Would be good if someone would help to create such layout. It's pure linux and traditional programming part. Thus anyone is welcome. I can do this, I agree it would simplify updating the Linux side of the system, you could then even have a backup of the previous kernels and filesystems. Normally th...

Re: Building Linux kernel

A simple request, I hope - could you add max_part=8 (or other suitable number) to boot command for the loop kernel module, so that partitions on disk images can easily be mounted via loop? It looks like cmdline is hard coded into uboot sfp or/or the kernel, as I don't find it in any text file. For e...

Re: Minimig (Amiga) core discussion

Every time you change something in core - all logic elements will be placed differently. You cannot predict how they will be placed. Different placements - different delays. There are some technics to minimize randomization, but it's hard to avoid it. Thanks for the explanation, I have never though...

Re: Minimig (Amiga) core discussion

Well, my MiSTer has a very active fan, and the FPGA chip is not at all warm. The 0927 core does whatever I throw at it, the 1229 core barely manages to boot, with random failures constantly. Clearly something fundamental changed.

Regression between Minimig_ 20170922 and Minimig_20171229?

For me, Minimig_20171229 behaves weird in all kinds of ways that suggest memory problems (pixel artifacts, random crashes and reboots, being asked to insert disks with broken volume names ... all kinds) while the 20170922 core works rock solid. Using HD720 mode for Workbench. Same behaviour on both ...
