Thanks mikro and anyone else involved. I too use the native GCC, on my FireBee. So this is really welcomed news.

Re: Window refresh problems under Geneva/Neodesk

Is NVDI free? You could simple add NVDI.PRG to you Application .zip (distribution) :) No, its not free, that's why it might be a bad idea to add it to the archive. Indeed. But there's also ENHANCER.PRG, which implements offscreen bitmaps and maybe other NVDI features and may be distributed. I think...

You do it exactly the same: all output goes to the VDI handle you got with v_opnbm(). By the way, you are aware this will require NVDI?

On the FireBee, NVDI runs and takes care of this. I know, it's confusing. I never could figure out how the VDI works on that machine :shrug:

But can you realistically use gcc >= 4 on a real Atari? I guess it depends on what you mean by "real Atari" and "use". I used GCC4 quite a lot on my FalconCT63 and now on my Firebee. I wouldn't dream of using it on a bog standard Falcon or TT though, and I don't compile heavy st...

Re: A CD-Driver for the CT60 ?

I have a spare SCSI CD-Drive witch I'd like to plug to the Falcon-CT60.
Witch CD-Driver supports the MC68060?

I used to use ExtenDOS and the CD Writer suite on my CT63. Great piece of software. I still have it if you're interested.

Useful stuff, Thorsten. I only tested the programs quickly on my Firebee and unfortunately spdview.prg froze it. Running it with the 68k emulator works though, and the other two programs ran fine as they are.
