    Yet Another Netatalk 2.2 Fork

    These are all sound tips, good job figuring this out. While this advice comes a bit late, I've done a write-up on configuring Netatalk over at the RaSCSI wiki that covers these points and others. Instead of '-ddp' you can also put '-transall' which activates both DDP and DSI (TCP/IP) which can...

    Yet Another Netatalk 2.2 Fork

    I've added this to the README in my fork. Thanks!

    Apple Lisa Video Board Advice

    This is a great tip, thanks for sharing! Let me add that the exact same type of potentiometer may exist inside on the PSU board as well. On the Lisa 2 I was working on, the pot on R29 seems to have been causing overvoltage that went away after working some contact cleaner into it. I found this...

    Apple Lisa doesn't boot - need help troubleshooting

    I just wanted to chime in and say that this thread helped me troubleshoot the same error on a Lisa 2 that I was repairing. The COP chip wasn't getting any voltage at all on any pin and kept stone cold during operation, so I followed the traces from pin 9 on the COP chip which took me to the area...

    Yet Another Netatalk 2.2 Fork

    I'm proud to present a new release from the Netatalk 2.x fork: https://github.com/rdmark/Netatalk-2.x/releases/tag/netatalk-2-220401b This version constitutes a massive refactoring, code cleanup, plus security and stability improvements. The primary functional change is that the configure...

    What should a hobbyist-focussed AppleTalk router do?

    I'm all for providing options to the community -- the software based solution (Netatalk) for those who already have servers around and enjoy tinkering with Linux or NetBSD; the hardware based solution for those who want the plug'n'play experience and don't mind paying for it. There's definitely...

    Yet Another Netatalk 2.2 Fork

    False alarm! It turns out to have been a permissions issue all along. If you're seeing missing icons or Error -50, you need to make sure write permissions are set correctly for the .AppleDesktop dir inside the shared directory. Basically, the user that you authenticate with needs to have write...

    Yet Another Netatalk 2.2 Fork

    @elvis I'm honored to have done something that's helpful for the RetroNAS project! The service you're providing to the community is very valuable. Thanks for the shout-out on your wiki there. FWIW, I've been able to connect to Netatalk 2.x AFP shares from both Big Sur and Monterey clients, as...

    Yet Another Netatalk 2.2 Fork

    @NJRoadfan So the bottom line is, from a functional perspective Netatalk works as expected, in that timestamps don't change regardless of client?

    Yet Another Netatalk 2.2 Fork

    @NJRoadfan Are either of these two sources of truth available online? Are you able to share links?

    Yet Another Netatalk 2.2 Fork

    My pleasure entirely! I couldn't have gotten this far without your contributions and encouragement! Now let's just convince the maintainers to cut a release and start having it trickle down to Ubuntu and elsewhere where the netatalk2 package has been broken for years. Hopefully we can make this...

    Yet Another Netatalk 2.2 Fork

    I tested with the netatalk arm64 3.1.12~ds-8 apt package on the same system and could not reproduce the bug. Files are copied over intact. However, the method of storing meta data has changed entirely between Netatalk 2 and 3 (.AppleDouble vs. OSX style ._* resources) so it's not surprising that...

    Yet Another Netatalk 2.2 Fork

    Bug Alert: Netatalk 2 will fail to create icon resources for classic Mac OS files copied onto the AFPShare when running on 64-bit Linux. On Mac OS 7.5 and earlier, files will still be copied but when you access them from another Mac, you will notice that they have lost their custom icons. On Mac...

    Doctorin' the Tardis (and Timelord): The Revived AppleTalk Time Server

    The vast majority of the community patches have been merged, and the head of branch-netatatalk-2-2 is indeed more or less at par with Netatalk 2.x v220101. The only one patch that was rejected was the one for preventing timestamps to be updated when copying folders on GS/OS. Apparently that...

    Great news everyone! The improved Timelord code is now merged to upstream Netatalk 2.2!

    Doctorin' the Tardis (and Timelord): The Revived AppleTalk Time Server

    @sailingdarter May I suggest we bring further general Netatalk discussion elsewhere, such as the sister thread that I referenced earlier? But yes, to answer your question, I did review the commit history in dawn-minion's fork the other day. The substance of those patches are already in my...

    Doctorin' the Tardis (and Timelord): The Revived AppleTalk Time Server

    These are very good points -- upstream Netatalk as it exists today is at its core a tool for corporate deployments and large sprawling multi-zone networks with thousands of users and complex access control and authentication needs. The project also has been less than effective at deprecating old...

    Get an old Mac on the web?

    @Cashed Oh, I consider my MacProxy fork "feature complete" at this point. It does what it does with regards to stripping away external content, and making modern websites look ugly but content-complete on vintage browsers. 68kproxy is a nice middle road there between MacProxy's crude but...

    Doctorin' the Tardis (and Timelord): The Revived AppleTalk Time Server

    @sailingdarter Hi there, I'm the person you spoke to most recently on that Reddit thread, so you certainly came to the right place. There's a parallel thread here for discussion around the Netatalk 2.x fork that I made, which is where I'm aiming to collect and merge all community patches...

    Get an old Mac on the web?

    @Cashed You're right, they're leveraging similar technology. The main differences are that 68kproxy uses the JavaScript version of Readability, while FrogFind uses the PHP version. Also, unlike FrogFind, 68kproxy enables you to disable Readability on the fly, which makes it fall back to an...
