Re: Power Supply Centuriontech or Exxos

Some talk about the exxos PSU vs Centuriontech PSU here: https://www.exxoshost.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=255&start=60#p11093 Seems like the Centuriontech PSU is not quite up to the task of powering a CT2 (powered by the 12V rail). Just not to make it sound like "Centuriontech is ...

Re: Wanted ! 16 MB for TT-Ram

IIRC, my TT has 16 MB TT RAM. Just recently got the tuxie's 256 MB so I don't need it. If so, it's yours for free. I can bring it to Silly Venture.

Re: Profiler for gcc

I'm not sure whether it fixes the problem but maybe you need to use libc_p.a from mintlib instead of libc.a. Unfortunately it is not compiled by default, i.e. not available on https://freemint.github.io/#snapshots

Re: The Falcon's confusing history

The revision history of the "high-end" Falcon document goes back to January 1991. If that was the Microbox it would still mean that it was planned/developed in parallel with the Sparrow/Falcon. That would confirm the article from my post above: http://www.atari-forum.com/viewtopic.php?p=3...

Re: CosmosEX 3.0

While it does work, it is used in some C-Lab falcons to provide internal SCSI, I don't really like it. You are removing the internal terminating resistors, which likely will cause problems down the line with external SCSI units, especially if the internal SCSI unit lacks termination and/or is remov...

Re: MSA/ST image mounting file system for Mint?

Actually, it's more work than just a device driver. The main problem is that you don't have, uhm, a device. So you need to create a virtual one, which would somehow accept the MSA / ST / DIM files (perhaps during opening such device) which would in turn create something like /dev/device/<index or fi...

Re: rsync in SpareMINT

This is a known issue with rsync on mint. I get the feeling it has completed the job, it just never exits. That's correct. Alan Hourihane sent me a fixed binary years ago where this problem was solved, but it doesn't look like the patch has been distributed. The SpareMiNT rsync is still non-functio...

Re: Falcon's 16bit bus myth - 32bit vs 16bit war

Simple rule of thumb: if it doesn't have a CPU and memory on the same expansion card, it can't have 32-bit memory access. The only exception here is the CT2A which does have its own 32-bit expansion connector but hey, it already has its own CPU and memory onboard. :)
