    A/UX 3.1.1 Post Install Scripts

    Good question... I wasn't aware there were two different versions released. This is being done with images from the "garden". I remember during the initial install there were options for installing print services, so I'm going to go out on a limb and say it's File & Print.

    A/UX 3.1.1 Post Install Scripts

    Soooooo.... New developments. As I was reading this wiki in more detail, I realized that most, if not all of the work I was trying to accomplish here was already done. So there's been a pivot to the project. I haven't pushed any commits yet, as I'm still testing, and QEMU has proven to be a...

    A/UX 3.1.1 Post Install Scripts

    Thanks @uyjulian. This is all very helpful info, adding it to my private wiki for later :) Got personal stuff to do this evening, so not a ton of progress today, but here's the current change logs for the systemupdate script. # Change Log The change log is here to depict the current state of...

    A/UX 3.1.1 Post Install Scripts

    So, I gave up on trying to do file transfers to the QEMU box. Tried NFS as well with the same results. Starts transferring then crashes. I did get it fixed up though. Created a blank disk image, fired up the Q610 partitioned it with a *nix partition, spun up NFS and transferred directly from my...

    A/UX 3.1.1 Post Install Scripts

    And that was going great... Right up until QEMU crashed on the FTP transfer... Crashed so hard that A/UX won't boot now due to inconsistencies. Glad I made that checkpoint tool now. :p

    A/UX 3.1.1 Post Install Scripts

    Got sick of swapping SD cards and creating images and passing back and forth between bare metal and QEMU... Build guide now documents TAP networking so you can access your QEMU VM from your home network. This will allow you to FTP jagubox, etc. over to the machine. (As far as FTP goes, I've...

    A/UX 3.1.1 Post Install Scripts

    I did find a working copy, so I should be all set for now. In other news, I found that jagubox and nleymann images I uploaded need to be recreated. Apparently dropping the data on to an HFS partitions was a bad idea...

    Making a VNC server for A/UX

    I'm stoked about this project. While not something I'll likely use in my environment, I will definitely be following development. I'm one of those folks who runs a 4 post rack. I'm looking at using my NW KVM in conjunction with a Wombat to spare CPU cycles. Not suggesting that this is not a...

    zombie Quadra 610 mostly boots...sometimes

    Sorry, it looks like I may have gotten a bad read off Pin 4 (see picture) As far as pulling the board, that's a for tomorrow project. :) Will get back to you on that.

    Connect two external drives to Color Classic?

    So, the SCSI bus should support 8 devices (0-7). I know there can be some reservations for some of those bus IDs for specific purposes. For instance, ID 7 is for the machine itself, and I think SCSI ID 3 is sometimes reserved for a CD-ROM drive. (I'm going off of 20 year old recollections, so...

    A/UX 3.1.1 Post Install Scripts

    One minor omission to note with the jagubox image is that I ripped the Apple.fixes directory. My formatted disk was ~3.5 MB shy of storing the whole thing, and I found that the data in the aws-tuneup-2.0 directory contained within was broke AF, assumed that no one actually wanted the sendmail...

    zombie Quadra 610 mostly boots...sometimes

    It just so happens that I have both a fully functional 610 and a 610 that powers but won't chime/boot. Been meaning to do some diagnostics on the PSU. Will bust out the multimeter and let you know what I find.

    Connect two external drives to Color Classic?

    Do the external drives have the same SCSI ID? That would be my first guess as to why you're seeing only one drive show up.

    A/UX 3.1.1 Post Install Scripts

    That's a good question. Unfortunately, I haven't had any SCSI hard drives that I could test this with since moving to Seattle in 2007. I would imagine it should work pretty well since the Mac Driver is part of the partition table... I could be wrong though, it's been a looooong time since I've...

    A/UX 3.1.1 Post Install Scripts

    Made a bunch of progress today, then botched up my installs and had to start from scratch because I was flying by the seat of my pants... Code is all fine and recoverable though. Slowed down, treated it like work, and started putting together processes and procedures... Added a wiki to the repo...

    A/UX 3.1.1 Post Install Scripts

    Been a while since I've been on the forums. Picked up a Quadra 610, full 040, 64Mb of RAM and a ZuluSCSI and decided to go down the A/UX rabbit hole for the first time since the early 00's. Learning lots from reading posts, and utilizing online resources. Was really excited to see the drop in...

    Making a 500 Series PB Do Things It Shouldn't

    It's been a looooooooooong time since I've been on the forums. I've really just been watching others do cool stuff with retro Macs for the last 15 years. TBH, I probably will fade into the ether again after this post, but I thought I'd at least share for the communities sake. I picked up...
