Re: TT030 replacement case fan and where to connect

DONT just plug it straight in. You will be able to plug just the +5V and GND pins of the socket into the connector to power the fan. Here is a picture of the pinout of the Noctua 3 pin so you only plug the red and black part of the socket in and not the yellow. Why 5V? Isn't the fan linked in the p...

Re: Problems with Mint

Yeah, it should run on the ST as well. As mentioned, try to strip it down, ideally to only MINT.PRG without any modules.

Re: What on earth is this?

Lesson learned. I just wish it wasn't exactly this way but could have been worse.

Re: What on earth is this?

Perhaps I should have specified that this happened out of the blue, i.e. the PCB had nothing even remotely similar there before. I simply started desoldering and it appeared like a plague. :) Bad news - the pad is indeed gone. Good news - fortunately that pin is not connected. Still, never seen anyt...

What on earth is this?

So I recapped the TT PSU, was waiting only for PC111 opto to make the job complete. Arrived today, so hooray to desolder the old one... I swear to all Gods of Electronics, I didn't do anything else than hot-aired the PCB: IMG_20181115_143749.jpg It can't be scrubbed off by isoprohyl alcohol, it seem...

Re: Sad day: I'm having to "upgrade" from MiNT 1.12...

Do you know if the compiler tool chain etc. will run under MiNT natively? i.e. Can you develop on the real hardware still? Absolutely. gcc 7.x is quite slower than the ancient 2.95 but it does work. I know the few people who are keeping Linux m68k seem to be cross-compiling and then running on emul...

You are right - I wasn't there. Actually I'm still not there ;), I'm just helping guys with some infrastructure. If you would like to discuss ideas / features, maybe it's worth signing up in the new ML: https://sourceforge.net/p/freemint/mailman/freemint-discuss/ There isn't many people left and any...

Re: Sad day: I'm having to "upgrade" from MiNT 1.12...

Once I got my TT operational again I even asked if they needed any help and was rebuffed (in a sneering manner) as they were only interested in XaAES integration at the time and weren't interested in the multi-user side of MiNT at all. It was clear that they were an inward looking group who didn't ...

started removing parts of the system they didn't understand, such as the nascent share library and virtual memory code. The memory protection system has languished too. "Recently" they removed the virtual console code as the developer thought it wasn't useful. Neither of these sentences are true. Y...
