Re: Fitting a 68882 Fpu to a Falcon

Actually it makes a lot of sense to have a faster FPU than CPU in this particular case, since they are not synchronous with respect to eachother. There are numerous hardware hacks for this. Tell me three applications / demos where you could notice such speedup :-D Nobody uses Falcon's FPU for realt...

Re: GCC for Falcon

And lots and lots of RAM... Even 10 years ago I occasionally ran out of RAM on my 32Mb Afterburner when trying to compile some of the heavier unix-stuff. Now I don't bother with gcc anymore. Good old PureC compiles entire projects in less time than gcc use to compile hello_world.c. It depends on yo...

Re: GCC for Falcon

no way. i think the last gcc that could have a chance to work in TOS was about 2.7.x version, i.e. something terribly old. newer gcc needs long names filesystem, not speaking about some decent shell.

AFAIK, there's no english version, however, using german version is quite intuitive, you can definitely do the job with some translator if you don't know a word in german :) but from what you say it seems you don't need this application -- its purpose is to serve coders, i.e. generate asm/gfa/binary...

Re: Fitting a 68882 Fpu to a Falcon

you should have got a 32mhz version -fn33 the 16mhz is far too slow and wont work as well huh? falcon fpu's clock is 16 MHz, there's no point to have it in 32 MHz version unless you use some booster and even in that case is 16 MHz enough (ok, when you want 50 MHz FPU, then 32 MHz version makes sens...

Re: Out of memory TOS / TTP Apps ( Mint & CT )

Erm, My CT setup can get to the desktop, but very very soon afterwards it will crash without NVDI, so, I have included an NVDI with this but it still wont play ball. Annoyingly without NVDI, it crashes so early that I can no longer install NVDI in 060 Mode, even on a fresh bare HD. I have to instal...

just for the record, Rodolphe mentioned in the email it's good to use 56 ohms resistors for each signal, i.e. making small PCB (similar to darklord's) for 2.5" -> resistors -> 3.5" circuit. His explanation: A IDe flat cable is 80 ohms impedance... We use 56 ohms because the PCB trace give ...

Hi, to your knowledge, is there any hardware fix / workaround for that common IDE cable length in Falcon?

What about reusing autogen.sh from aranym/atari800? CVS always contains autogen.sh which cares of everything needed to create 'configure', source releases contain 'configure' already.

Ah, thanks, you're right, autoreconf -i & automake did the job. However, at least one file is missing -- install-sh, configure script was not able to find it, I copied it from some other project, IIRC, is it somehow special file it couldn't be included / generated?
