New Mailserver @firebee.org

We finished the migration to a completely new (and sadly commercial) mailserver with all our mailservices concerning firebee.org. See:
http://firebee.org/fb-bin/news?action=f ... 499&lng=EN

For communication please use from now on exclusively:

Firebee.org Server Problems

Sadly the project is facing bigger server issues at the moment. Since last Thursday the domain firebee.org is not accessible and our mailboxes are not reachable. Today it turned out that this is a serious problem, that might take another week or two to get solved. Our admins are working at the probl...

Re: Coldfire V5

A lot of time has passed since their ARM offensive and they might be amenable to selling a small backstock of v5 if they have any. I don't know if the v5e made it into any printers but some of them can be had for £50-100 on ebay and the cpu could be extracted. BGA mounted ? [edit] It looks like the...

Re: Coldfire V5

Of course we tried it. And we tried it hard. The problem ist the produced chips are done as a Joint Venture from HP and Freescale. The agreed upon an NDA, so we can get the chips (at least the 400MHz versions easily, the 540 not that often), but no ducumentation at all. So we would have som BGA with...

Re: Bad Flash on my Firebee

If you use the latest FireTOS from 2014 you are using the correct cpx as well (as the one wich is included is the only working one). So I am really wondering what might be the IDE issue. What BaS are you using? You should give BaS Codewarrior a try and see if the problems are gone.

Re: MOD files on Firebee

Well in general: If you try new programs, take the 68000 versions if there are CPU spcific versions. The cf68klib that is included into FireTOS at the FireBee is not for 68030 or 68060 commands. In most cases the 68000 versions work well, like Highwire does! Also I´d suggest to every new FireBee use...

Re: MOD files on Firebee

It seems the informations about activities around the FireBee start to fade away recently, … Highwire was working well already years ago as 68k version (not the 060 or 030 builts!). But gladly m0n0 did also a clean ColdFire built of it. Grab it at his website: https://freeshell.de/~monokrom/geeklog/...

Yes, for more than 5 years! It's at every C partition of delivered FireBees and called "readme.txt" inside the folder "flasher".

Not necessarily. As you have CF-Card problems, I would give you some components for flashing which are newer and have improved IDE implementations, and that work well at least at my FireBee.

To me it seems that you flashed some BETA versions of the ROM software (FireTOS, EmuTOS, BaS, BaS_gcc, FPGA) from earlyer this year that are not public, and mixed things up. We should start reflashing all components in your ROM with well working software and known versions. Are you the one who conta...

Re: Free Pascal - now on Atari TOS

About the CF support, it's definitely doable. I tried to connect the FireBee team already, but sadly got no response at all to my e-mail. The FireBee is definitely an attractive target, because the compiler's CF support was only tested using QEMU on Linux, and not real hardware. But I don't think I...
