Re: TF536 on the STacy

Hey Mikro are you aware of any lighter weight bash alternatives compiled for mint? I find bash to be very sluggish on my 030's. Of course I have tried mksh from the sparemint repo but it doesn't support bash alias commands. It's kind of funny that Linux distros are not using bash any more because t...

Re: TF536 on the STacy

Well, it does print that text message that it requires an FPU, doesn't it. ;) To complicate things even more, 020+ kernel builds do not require FPU at all.

Re: Icky Projects

Sweet. :) As I faced similar problem and since I lack your 3D printing / PCB designing skills, I had to do with a home made solution: ribbon.jpg card.jpg outside.jpg The biggest hell was to flip *all* the ribbon connectors, so I could place it like that (otherwise they would go the "wrong" direction...

Re: Atari TT / MegaSTE ATX-PSU adapter

Before lowering the speed I would recommend to measure temperature inside the metal cage - after that, I assure you wont feel comfortable lowering that speed anymore. ;-) It's really super hot there, sometime I fear whether even that one fan for such a huge box is enough.

Steve - great find!

Re: Power supply takes out YM2149

I'd be very surprised if they recapped anything for such prices. I guess they just take the gear, clean it up and resell. Cheaper is not always better. ;)

Re: CosmosEx V3

Forum cross-posting is not exactly a good way to get more help. You have been told on the other forum that FreeMiNT + CE setup is simply not supported at this time. And now you're asking it again.....
