Since I felt like procrastinating all afternoon.... I did an update to the mAcTX LC. Assuming they work, I'll have a handful to pass around.
These are based on the version uploaded by @blueskykitty at https://68kmla.org/bb/index.php?threads/mactx-lc-boards.38912/
I've uploaded them to Github...
Also - if any RaSCSI users want to try out the PowerView emulation, there are some instructions here: https://github.com/akuker/RASCSI/wiki/PowerView---SuperView
It has issues, but its still cool to see it working.
I've been working on replicating a similar functionality, but with the Radius PowerView, using RaSCSI. Here's a picture of color output from a SE/30 :D
The Radius drivers seem to have some arbitrary limitations - like it will only work on certain Macs and only goes up to 800x600 resolution...
Any chance the Pi is overheating? Why type of Raspberry Pi are you using? I haven't tried using the new Pi Zero W 2 inside a powerbook, so not sure how hot it will get.
Ya, you can do that. Or, if you want, I have a PCB that will allow you to adapt the PB SCSI connector to a DB-25. If you...
Hi @3lectr1cPPC ! Just to make sure I understand correctly:
- PB 145: works fine as CD-ROM, but not as a hard drive
- PB 170: doesn't work as either
A couple questions/things to check:
- I'm assuming you have the termination switches enabled on your RaSCSI?
- What version of software are you...
No future development needed. Its ready to go :) The Version 2.4a board can support this use case. I have a STL file for the bracket available here:
To give this a more permanent home, I've committed these files to github. @blusnowkitty - please let me know if you have any objections. I will gladly take it down if you have any concerns.
I've observed the same thing. Just sitting idle, the chips do get pretty warm. However, I've used them for long periods of time without having any issues. Have you guys measured the temperature of the chips?
The operating temperature in the data sheet is 0 to 70 degrees C. As long as they're...
FYI: RaSCSI release 21.10 is now available on Github!
It also includes a pre-built SD card image with everything configured! (Based on Raspberry Pi OS Lite)
The german guy and I are working together, so we'll have them in stock at the same time.
I will have some kits on Tindie in the next few days. Shipping will be a killer though if you're in the EU.
Our supplier for the assembled boards hasn't been the greatest at meeting their deadlines, but...
I've been off 68kmla for a while... so, sorry for the delay!
I've been working with a guy in Germany who is offering RaSCSIs. He can probably ship it to you for a lot less than I can: https://samplerspa.de/
If you do want one from Tindie, I can add greece as an option! I just need to manually...
Ok - I think I'm ready to announce that the DaynaPort SCSI/Link emulation is working! I'd love some feedback on the pull request for this function, if anyone has any free time:
I still need to clean up the documentation, but if someone is brave and...
Thanks for the update @saybur, I just tried a 300w, 5v power supply with the same result. I'm questioning whether its really a brown out. But, I'll still give the new firmware a try in the morning.
What do you use to monitor the console output? I'm using TeraTerm, but it looks like some of the...
A couple comments about a post that @Byte Knight made in the MacSD thread....
If you don't have any other bootable drives installed, the Mac will wait for RaSCSI to boot up. So, you might see a flashing question mark for 10-20 seconds. But, the Mac should boot once RaSCSI starts up.
