    Help Setting up Retro68 on OS X

    If someone held a gun to my head, My best guess is that he can call the default constructor and not the copy constructor to fix this.

    Help Setting up Retro68 on OS X

    Unfortunately, that was my best swing at it. Unless one really knows C++ (and I know it, really knowing it is truly up for debate), it can be damn hard to describe when shit goes south. Maybe this would be better: https://en.cppreference.com/w/cpp/language/copy_constructor If that doesn't help, hopefully someone else can make it more clear than mud.
  3. From what I've read Newer Technologies was able to essentially drop in a 740 G3 in place of a 603e processor on one of their blackbird CPU daughterboards because they are apparently fully pin-compatible, However, by the time their 740 G3 prototypes were completed, the interfaces for the CPU daughterboards were no longer being produced, so the project was dead in the water. Also, apparently in Japan, a guy was able to take a Newer Technology NuPower 167 Mhz CPU daughtercard, pop off the 603e, drop a 740 G3 in its place, and it worked without any difficulty. From what I can tell, the PPC740L would be a drop-in replacement for the 603e. What do you guys think? Based on this datasheet: http://datasheets.chipdb.org/IBM/PowerPC/7xx/PowerPC-740-750.pdf Would creating a PPC740L G3 CPU Daughterboard For Blackbird Powerbooks using a Newer Technology NuPower 167 CPU daughtercard as a base work? What frequency do you think we could get it to work at? Also, do you think it would be need active cooling? I'm thinking yes. As such, do you think that would be difficult to implement given the space constraints in the blackbird?

    601 processor replacement experiments

    For whatever its worth, Newer Technologies was able to essentially drop in a 740 G3 in place of a 603e processor on one of their blackbird CPU daughterboards because they are apparently fully pin-compatible, However, by the time their 740 G3 prototypes were completed, the interfaces for the CPU daughterboards were no longer being produced, so it was dead in the water.

From what I can tell, the PPC740L would be a drop-in replacement for the 603e. Being a blackbird fan, I would like to see a 740 G3 run on a blackbird.

    Ok, your parser is getting screwed because you're trying to call an implicitly-deleted copy construct. The reason the copy constructor is implicitly-deleted is because the "Basic_Symbol" aka Default Constructor has a user-declared move constructor. Breaking it down, you are trying to call a copy of a default that has a move acting on it. You aren't allowed to call a copy of a default that is being moved because once it is being moved, the copy is implicitly deleted, so you are trying to call a copy that is not there. and -d with a path in quotation marks basically means "Directory Path"

    Powerbook 540c and Apple 4x CD Rom drive

    Also, have you tried loading the appropriate driver software?
  7. A thermal printer. A good idea, if one can't stand the sound of dot matrix, but I bet the print durability sucked.

    You're linking for x86-84 architecture, and you are missing the symbols for x86-64, that's the best I can tell.

    68LC040 in Centris 660av

    First you must remove all chips that are socketed and in inspect all the legs and body for corrosion. If corrosion is present remove that corrosion. You need to completely douse the logic board using 91%-92% IPA (in your case, maybe a short submerge for a few hours may be a better bet since that is some seriously evil corrosion...) and then scour your logic board with a soft tooth brush (the softer the better) using a Sonicare or Oral-B on its lowest setting, and scrub until the sensor comes on that you are brushing too hard. back off, scrub all of the visible gunk, and every and kook and cranny, Then dry blow every inch of that logic boarb, using the COOL settimg.(This Is CRITICAL) on a blower dryer, especially the large chips. Once you are satisfied the board is dry, let it it sit for 72 hours for all the residual moisture to evaporate . And hopefully you are good to go. I have used this method many times, without fail, so I feel confident it will restore a logic board to working order, at least temporarily, until more permanent pairs can be completed. This is assuming that the underlying problem is mild-to moderate cap rot. If anything else is going on this method most likely will not work. All though it will not makes things worse, one must always remove cap goo as the first step to repair

    Does anyone make a 6-bit grayscale panel that size any longer that would be compatible?

    Yes, your second post doesn't provide much information...

    You realize that even if you can get the water out, its only a matter of time until it fails again, right? It's an inherent manufacturing defect. It can't be corrected.

    Orange Micro NuBus PC Card - Need Help

    Regarding the 660: Support for Intel Pentium MMX and classic Pentium 100-233 MHz, Cyrix 6x86MX, 6x86L, 6x86 PR166-233, MII PR266-300, AMD K5, K6, K6-2 166-450 MHz, AMD K6-3 400 MHz. So, K6-3, not P3.

    Orange Micro NuBus PC Card - Need Help

    The last NuBus model was the 340, which could take a DX2, DX4, or 586 processor. Nice card. Had a built in Soundblaster compatible chip, audio line out/in, etc... 400+ series were PCI only. 660 was the last one made.

    PowerBook 160 help (broken hinge mount)

    That hinge design is similar to a few PC laptop designs that I have worked with. Why people ever thought hinges like that were a good idea is beyond me.

    Wrong capacitors for SE/30?!

    Oh, no, it wasn't designed to do that. It just burned hot enough, fast enough, to flash melt its own solder. I was just musing on the concept, sort of like a capacitor that acts as its own fuse.

    Wrong capacitors for SE/30?!

    A cap that desolders when it fails is actually a fairly interesting fail-safe. It guarantees the part that went up in flames doesn't damage the board, and it breaks the connection across it so no upstream parts are harmed by the failure.

    Super rare Macintosh II Daystar PDS adapter

    A very late reply... But the 68882 can be used, but not like a typical "FPU" with the 'LC040. It has to be run in "Peripheral" mode as an external device. So, it would be very slow. This was done on purpose by Moto' to prevent people from using the 68882 with the 'LC040 like it was used with the '030, as a cheaper option than a full '040. There was one originally planned for the 540c card cage by Sonnet, but they dropped it before it went to production because they realized 1) Not much demand 2) The performance was truly awful.

    Actually fell off the board? I think that's the first time I've ever heard of that happening when a tant went up in flames. I guess it essentially desoldered itself. Interesting.

    68LC040 in Centris 660av

    Very true. My blackbird throws this one out, even thought it is a 540c with a full 68040 installed (it has a 550c CPU daughterboard installed), when it has a PC Card cage error, it throws an FPU missing error instead, despite this being one of the very few 540c's in the universe with an FPU (and yes, the system knows the FPU is present, it shows up in diagnostic software and actually functions when tested). Yep, machines that don't have an FPU by default, but can have one installed, have a test routine in ROM to examine if an FPU is present, and if it is, to use it. Systems that are expected to have one don't have this test routine in ROM and just expect a hardware FPU to exist, and when it is discovered it doesn't exist, the system bombs. My bet is someone wanted that '040 for something else, and just stuck an 'LC040 in its place, not caring if the system worked our not, possibly never even testing it out.
  23. Ugh storage room losses are the worst. There should be some legal protection regarding hospitalization. I had something similar happen to me when I was in the hospital for awhile.

    Classic II + FPU = A/UX?

    From what I've gathered looking at the Amiga scene, once one gets past 60 Mhz with regard to the FPU, there is negligible speed-up as a result of the CPU becoming the bottleneck due to how the FPU data is handled by the '030. As far as the FPU/ROM and the Classic II, and for nearly every hardware project I've been involved in, I've always operated on a "Can it be done?" rather than a "Why do it?" basis. From the FPU perspective, actually getting the Classic II beyond the SE/30 as far as the FPU performance was concerned simply using what was provided by the Classic II design (no hacks) was the high point. Seeing how far a theory can be pushed is also interesting in its own right.
