    TashRouter: An AppleTalk Router

    6.9 came out today with the patch included. I would assume they would use a stable version of the kernel for the next Debian stable, so hopefully a new stable version comes out after 6.9 that Debian will use. If we're lucky, this patch will get selected for backporting to the older stable...

    TashRouter: An AppleTalk Router

    Thanks! It looks like the net tree for 6.9-rc8 (which might become the final 6.9) was sent to Linus today and it contains the patch. Linus already merged it and you can see that the mainline tree now contains the patch too. So...I'm pretty sure we squeezed this in just in time before the final...

    TashRouter: An AppleTalk Router

    Thanks! It appears that it was accepted into the net tree this morning. I'm not sure exactly what that means for which Linux release it'll be included with because 6.9 is so far into the release cycle at this point (6.9-rc7 was released a few days ago). Probably either 6.9 if we're lucky, or...

    Custom Boot Chime Guide?

    Haha, very possible! Another thing I did when testing a longer sound (the 5200/6200 sound) was to do the sound as 11.127 kHz instead, and hack my code to write each sample to the chip twice. That would let you use a sound twice as long. You wouldn't really even need to extend the IIsi ROM, I...

    TashRouter: An AppleTalk Router

    I resubmitted the patch, fixing the issues the maintainer brought up. We'll see how it goes.

    TashRouter: An AppleTalk Router

    Ahhh interesting, somehow I didn't get notified when you tagged me on this. Based on the last time it was submitted to the upstream kernel, it seems like there wasn't any resistance to the actual logic the patch did, it was just patch submission process stuff. It can be super intimidating and...

    Custom Boot Chime Guide?

    At a minimum it looks like the location of the free space where I placed the chime has moved in the IIsi ROM. It looks like it starts at around 0x4BF28 and is only about 24 KB in size, so there's less room available. With an 8-bit sound at 22.254 kHz, that comes out to a little longer than a...

    Custom Boot Chime Guide?

    I have a really old blog post (predating all the modern ROM SIMM developments) about how to hack the IIci ROM to add a sampled startup chime. I’d imagine the process on the IIsi ROM used in the ROM-inator II would be similar. It’s not exactly the same, since things are likely moved around. It...

    Sil3112 Card in a PowerBook Pismo

    I just wanted to point out that I think the IDs are already correct -- the Vendor ID and Device ID in your picture are displayed in decimal for some reason. 4245 is 0x1095 and 12562 is 0x3112.

    Reverse-engineering the Lapis ProColorServer 8 II

    You are amazing. I never would have considered the possibility of patching an FPGA bitstream to fix an issue like this. Really nice work figuring it all out! Super duper impressive.

    Do 32-pin, 400mil SOJ sockets still exist?

    You’re welcome! I’m interested to see what you end up creating. Never heard of a socketed RAM SIMM before.

    Do 32-pin, 400mil SOJ sockets still exist?

    Looks like Connector People has them in stock. Yeah, Octopart definitely isn’t perfect but I’ve found it useful from time to time. As seen here it doesn’t have every supplier.

    Do 32-pin, 400mil SOJ sockets still exist?

    That's an interesting idea! Have you tried searching on Octopart? For example, unless I'm misunderstanding, that Farnell datasheet link is telling me that 400 mil 32-SOJ socket part numbers are 165-200005-02 and 165-200005-12. Looks like Quest Components has a bunch of the former. If it helps, I...

    ModTashtalk: lt0 driver for Linux

    That is so awesome! I would be happy to review the code to the best of my knowledge level, and to try to provide any info I can about the submission process, although I will admit I've never submitted a brand new kernel driver before, only smaller patches to existing drivers.

    Questions regarding Apple “Houdini I” DOS Compatibility Card from Quadra 610 (with 486 SX 25 CPU)

    Thanks for providing the pinout differences! I decided to verify the resistors mentioned in the FAQ. R56 and R55 both have one end going to pin A15. R56 is populated, so R56 must be for hooking NMI to pin A15. R55 is not populated. Must be for hooking IGNNE to pin A15. R54 has one end going...

    Questions regarding Apple “Houdini I” DOS Compatibility Card from Quadra 610 (with 486 SX 25 CPU)

    Thanks for the advice on cleaning and care with changing the CPU! My experience mirrors yours. Windows 98 was able to install on the stock SX CPU if I bypassed the FPU check with a flag to setup, but it’s super duper slow. 95 seemed all right. Glad to help! If you end up trying out a new CPU...

    Questions regarding Apple “Houdini I” DOS Compatibility Card from Quadra 610 (with 486 SX 25 CPU)

    I also have one of the Houdini I cards and have been playing with it recently, but haven't gotten the courage to think about upgrading its CPU yet. However, I did do some initial research about it. It turns out that back in the '90s there was a FAQ with all kinds of tidbits about the card, but...

    IIci 64MB memory upgrade issues. Do I have the wrong RAM?

    Haha, that makes perfect sense. Glad you got something up and running either way!

    IIci 64MB memory upgrade issues. Do I have the wrong RAM?

    Those are nice-looking 2-chip SIMMs! Yeah, I'll bet one (or more) of those Memory Masters SIMMs is defective and shorting something on the address or data bus. That would perfectly explain why it won't even chime, because it would prevent the ROM from executing properly.
