After reinstalling my PM 6500 I realized something a little too late. My floppy disk with the sonnet L2 G3 card was corrupt, and not just corrupt, irrecoverably corrupt. And worse yet, I found out that Sonnet pulled their drivers from their site.
After spending half a night search archives on the web, I ended up frantically searching my own media archives in case I made a backup. Luckily for me, I did happen to make such a backup, then immediately put on my server.
The purpose of this post is that this archive (pulled from Sonnettech before they pulled their drivers) can be on the net for people who either received the upgrade without a floppy, or theirs gets corrupt and they don't have the driver. Without further Adieu, i present Sonnet Crescendo L2/G3 Update for PowerMac 5400/5500/6360/6400/6500 and TAM Machinesftp://coius.info/Download/Mac/Drivers/C ... 44_145.hqx
If someone wants to mirror, please do in case my server goes down or offline. This is run on an in-house server, so I try to maintain uptimes, but it's not always possible to maintain 100% uptime with a home connection. Needless to say, I am looking for mirrors (either home or pro server) to keep this on the net.
Please feel free to download and mirror. If mirrored, please post the link.
Mods: if you want to make this a sticky, I will keep this driver on my server permanantly in my public FTP upload folder. I keep a UPS on the cable modem/router and server but I do sometimes have downtimes. Possibly mirror on 68kmla cory? Just a suggestion
EDIT I will also post a few links to some other drives that has fallen off the net. I know I have a few software drivers for peripherals that the drivers seem to be missing off the net.
Preliminary operational tests were inconclusive (the damn thing blew up).
