    Sil3112 flashing (SATA)

    Aha! Mystery solved. Thanks for filling me in on that.

    Sil3112 flashing (SATA)

    Padding out the Wiebe firmware should be enough. If you look at the end of it in a hex editor you can see that it's already been padded out to 64k. Just add another 64k of Fs to it until the firmware is 128k (131072 bytes) in size and then flash with updflash from a DOS bootdisk. I inserted the padding before the last line. I'm not exactly sure what that string at the end is for but all the SATA roms have the same value, regardless of the version. The RAID one I checked has two bytes changed so perhaps it's related to the device ID. If only we could get a firmware from the Mathey MSATA-P02MAC. That supports OS9 booting and the eeprom is only 512k so it'll easily fit on most 3112s.

    Help me ID a SuperMac card

    I picked up a USB programmer some time back to fix a bad BIOS flash and had it in the back of my mind to read in the EEPROM from this SuperMac card at some stage. Well, I've just popped off the chip and read it out to the attached file. I can't make much sense out of the dump, but maybe someone more knowledgable can tell me if it looks OK or if it's damaged in some way? Also, here's a picture of what was underneath it.

    Thanks! I'll see if I can find something like that here.

    What was the adhesive you used to fix the snapped tabs?

    Help! CD is Locked (System 6)

    It's not a program, just an extension. It stops the system trying to create/update the desktop database on read-only volumes. You still need a driver of some kind for your CD drive. If you're using a non-Apple drive I had pretty good success with the freeware CD Sunrise driver. I think it handled everything except CD Audio.

    Help! CD is Locked (System 6)

    For System 6, you need to install the Desktop Manager 2.0.1 update to handle read-only media like CDROM.
  8. The B&W G3 is handy as it still has ADB. Also I thought it was one of the nicest looking machines. I have a Gigabit Ethernet for heavier lifting and a dead MDD that I'll have to try and get a PSU for at some stage.

    Question About Restore Discs

    With OS X restore disks it's possible to bypass the machine check. This is particularly handy for Intel Tiger machines as the retail version was PowerPC only. With earlier versions of OS X I'm not sure if the check was absent or just contained a wider range of supported machines. I know I used the Jaguar discs from my iBook with my iMac and possibly a G3 or G4 as well. For Snow I used this to unlock a Sandybridge MBP restore disc. Came in handy when I built my SB-E Hackintosh.

    Sweet. Glad you got it up and running! And thanks for confirming that 2.2.4 is a no-go. I haven't ran into any issues with 2.1.6 here so it's a keeper for me. I kept my VM as minimal as possible so it doesn't have any GUI. It just boots to a login prompt. For avahi here's my notes. They're probably largely taken from that ubuntu guide I linked to earlier. install: avahi-daemon, libnss-mdns edit /etc/nsswitch.conf adding mdns to end of hosts line create /etc/avahi/services/afpd.service with following contents: <?xml version="1.0" standalone='no'?> %h _afpovertcp._tcp 548 _device-info._tcp 0 model=Xserve You can change the model from Xserve to any from /System/Library/CoreServices/CoreTypes.bundle/Contents/Info.plist on a Mac.

    Did you just paste my eth settings into the end of /etc/default/netatalk changing eth0 for eth1? That's the wrong file anyway so you should remove that. If it's not there already just add "eth1" to the end of atalkd.conf and restart netatalk.

    This is what I have in /etc/default/netatalk: # Netatalk configuration # Change this to increase the maximum number of clients that can connect: AFPD_MAX_CLIENTS=20 # Change this to set the machine's atalk name and zone. # NOTE: if your zone has spaces in it, you're better off specifying # it in afpd.conf #ATALK_ZONE=@zone ATALK_NAME=`echo ${HOSTNAME}|cut -d. -f1` # specify the Mac and unix charsets to be used ATALK_MAC_CHARSET='MAC_ROMAN' ATALK_UNIX_CHARSET='LOCALE' # specify the UAMs to enable # available options: uams_guest.so, uams_clrtxt.so, uams_randnum.so, # uams_dhx.so, uams_dhx2.so # AFPD_UAMLIST="-U uams_dhx.so,uams_dhx2.so" # Change this to set the id of the guest user AFPD_GUEST=nobody # Set which daemons to run. # If you need legacy AppleTalk, run atalkd. # papd, timelord and a2boot are dependent upon atalkd. # If you use "AFP over TCP" server only, run only cnid_metad and afpd. ATALKD_RUN=yes PAPD_RUN=no TIMELORD_RUN=no A2BOOT_RUN=no CNID_METAD_RUN=yes AFPD_RUN=yes # Control whether the daemons are started in the background. # If it is dissatisfied that atalkd starts slowly, set "yes". ATALK_BGROUND=yes # export the charsets, read form ENV by apps export ATALK_MAC_CHARSET export ATALK_UNIX_CHARSET # config for cnid_metad. Default log config: # CNID_CONFIG="-l log_note" For the eth1: not found error I think you just add eth1 to the end of atalkd.conf and either restart netatalk or just restart the VM. Then it should end up looking something like mine. It's been a while since I did all this so it's a bit hazy.

    PowerBook Pismo MIDI synthesizer

    I'm not sure what would run well on a Tiger Pismo. I know Tiger didn't feel that great on my G3 iBook and that had 800MHz and 640MB RAM. Here's a couple of basic VST hosts I found: http://www.refusesoftware.com/products/feature/3 http://www.440audio.com/en/software/v3126-The-Lone-Roger-MultiVST-Shell/ And there's a few more listed here. If you have a look through the site you might find some more cool stuff.

    PowerBook Pismo MIDI synthesizer

    If you're looking for organ sounds try the Combo V and Combo F at Martinic. They're free, universal and sound great (to me anyway). I can't say how well they'll run on a Pismo but it won't cost you anything to find out. They're plugins so you'll need a host of some kind (like Garageband).

    I just added the folders in the Shared Folder section of the VM, set whether I wanted them readable or not and set them to automount. They then show up in the emulated Debian in the /media folder. I have one folder (Shared Folder) that is writable but I can't overwrite or delete files from the Mac side. I get an error -50 every time. I don't know how to fix that. I just delete the files on the PC afterwards. I have no problem deleting files in the Essentials share which is in the VM so I guess it's related to VB's folder sharing.
