    A/UX Frequently Asked Questions

    Question, the FAQ says this: "Now A/UX includes drivers for the Apple EtherNet card (they aren't installed by default though), but they don't work with most of the 3rd party cards except for the 3Com "EtherLink NB", the Asante "MacCon" and the StarNet Networking cards. They are 100% register...

    [A/UX] Drop-in clean A/UX install image for SCSI2SD

    I have loaded the A/UX install CD from my SD card after dd'ing it the same way, although I used a floppy to boot it; the 3.0.1 ISO I have wasn't booting, although perhaps I didn't have the emulated CDROM device configured properly? I have previously used this same device to boot regular system...

    [A/UX] Drop-in clean A/UX install image for SCSI2SD

    Sorry for the thread necromancy, but I'm having a bit of trouble getting this running on my SE/30. It's got a BMOW Macrominator II and 68MB of RAM, with a SCSI2SD V5.5 hanging off the back. I installed the SCSI2SD configuration on my device, then I wrote the image to my SD card on Linux: sudo...

    Fan replacement for SE/30

    Wow, what a video! I've ordered the fan he recommends; with that much thought and effort put into the video, I have no doubt it's a great choice. Thanks!

    Fan replacement for SE/30

    The fan on my SE/30 is kind of loud. I love the perfect silence of the Plus, but acknowledge that the 68030 needs better cooling. Has anyone tried replacing the built-in fan with a quieter one?

    StuffIt 5.5 doesn't always extract .sit files fully

    Without access to an OS X system, do I have any options for repacking/repairing the archive, short of begging someone here to unpack & repack it?

    StuffIt 5.5 doesn't always extract .sit files fully

    Stuffit Expander versions 5.5 and 4.0.1 both fail. 5.5 gets part-way into the file, 4.0.1 just silently exits without even displaying a progress window. I've got 3.something on my FloppyEmu card, I'll try that.

    StuffIt 5.5 doesn't always extract .sit files fully

    Possibly... it also extracts fine using 'unar' on Linux, well, as fine as you can expect on a system without resource forks. But why distribute an archive for 68k systems that no 68k system can extract?

    StuffIt 5.5 doesn't always extract .sit files fully

    I've got my SE/30 running pretty nicely, but I've run across a few .sit files which StuffIt simply won't fully extract. For instance, if I try https://www.emaculation.com/basilisk/Public%20Address%20Stripped.sit it will extract a directory named "Read Me Files", which contains a single file...

    SE/30 fails to boot known-good floppies

    Ah, that would make sense. I'd have to set up the Plus again to double check, but I'm pretty sure a lot of these disks are pretty old.

    SE/30 fails to boot known-good floppies

    So I have a Mac Plus which came with a ton of floppies, and I have an SE/30 that I recently recapped. I've been trying some of the floppies in the SE/30. It can boot a disk labeled "Macintosh System Tools Version 2.0" just fine, but most other disks fail to boot. For instance, my Hitchhiker's...

    Mac Plus w/ intermittent video (tapping the case "helps")

    Reflowing J1 and J4 appears to have done the trick. Thanks, everyone!

    Mac Plus w/ intermittent video (tapping the case "helps")

    Here's a fun one: if I turn it on, sitting upright, the screen is off. If I pick it up and rotate it about 45 degrees to the left or to the right, the screen turns on. This is extremely reliable (and kind of funny)

    Mac Plus w/ intermittent video (tapping the case "helps")

    Thanks for the blazing-fast reply! It's funny, I took another crack at searching for the problem a few minutes after I posted and came up with a PDF that suggested the same thing: http://www.maccaps.com/MacCaps/DIY_Information_files/Classic%20Mac%20Repair%20Notes%20.pdf I'm quite comfortable...

    Mac Plus w/ intermittent video (tapping the case "helps")

    I recently acquired a very nice Macintosh Plus, but when I booted it this morning, the screen didn't display anything. When I tapped the side of the case, picture appeared, and after a little more tapping it stayed on. It booted up as normal otherwise. I had just opened it up and removed the...
