    ImageWriter II - one pin does not work

    In case you're wondering about the print head... This is what it looks like taken apart. Reassembly was quite fiddly, but it still worked except for the middle pin even though I switched the pins around. Next I got another print head and the printer showed the exact same behavior. I also...

    Portable StyleWriter - driver for >7.1.1?

    http://macintoshgarden.org/apps/apple-software-upgrades-cd-rom-july-1997 This Apple CD from 1997 should contain a driver for the Portable StyleWriter. Perhaps it's a newer version. /edit: another one: https://archive.org/details/AppleLegacyRecoveryDisks

    Mac SE/30 with regular Mac SE front???

    I have not tried if such an old system version would boot on an SE/30, it might though. Also, an SE/30 will run with 4MB of RAM installed. Definitely odd. I would not risk 290€ to get a regluar SE.

    ImageWriter II - one pin does not work

    Thank you! Unfortunately that's not it. I did suspect a bad print head so I got a used one. I then took the old one apart, thoroughly cleaned it and inspected all the pins, switched them around and nothing changed. I think @Johnnya101 must be right that either the logic board or the psu board...

    ImageWriter II - one pin does not work

    Hello everybody, I hope I am not the only one tinkering with old printers. I got an ImageWriter II to match my Mac Plus, SE or SE/30 and while the printer cleaned up quite nicely there is one problem that I was unable to fix so far and that is annoying me very much. The middle pin does not...

    Yet Another Netatalk 2.2 Fork

    Holy crap! I am such a moron. On that disk image of 7.1.1 AppleTalk was set to the modem port instead of Alternate Ethernet. Yay, it finally works!

    Yet Another Netatalk 2.2 Fork

    I am running a Pi Zero 2W without Ethernet thus I have to connect through WiFi and use the network bridge for WiFi. I did reinstall the Pi from scratch to make sure that nothing from my previous experimenting is left that might have negative influence. I used the latest image from the RaSCSI...

    Yet Another Netatalk 2.2 Fork

    Allright, finally I had some more time to fiddle with this. Now I did create all four override.conf files in the directories and filled them with the code below /etc/systemd/system/afpd.service.d/override.conf /etc/systemd/system/atalkd.service.d/override.conf...

    Yet Another Netatalk 2.2 Fork

    Some further digging. The appletalk module does not seem to be the issue. However... pi@rascsi:~ $ sudo journalctl -u atalkd.service -b -- Journal begins at Sun 2022-02-06 21:58:35 CET, ends at Tue 2022-05-03 19:19:49 CEST. -- May 03 19:15:28 rascsi systemd[1]: Starting Netatalk AppleTalk...

    Yet Another Netatalk 2.2 Fork

    Perhaps you can help me as I am completely lost here. I have a RaSCSI connected to a Pi Zero2 W running the latest release of RaSCSI. I installed Netatalk with the easyinstall.sh script. Next I edited /etc/netatalk/atalkd.conf and added rascsi_bridge to the file to bind it to the WiFi bridge...
