Re: How to install FreeMiNT - simple step by step guide

I listed you the contents of my drive image, tell me what I did wrong. NOHOG2.ACC in root, nothing else then the distribution zip unpacked, and GEM=ROM enabled. Other than that my Hatari is about 1 year old but I don't think that would make a difference. *EDIT* Seem the NOHOG2.ACC itself makes a di...

Re: How to install FreeMiNT - simple step by step guide

Addendum on unpacking the ZIP file:

Procedure for many people probably would be downloading the large ZIP via UIP tool to a harddisk partition und unzip it using STZip or compatible to install on the existing partitions.

Re: How to install FreeMiNT - simple step by step guide

did you manage to get your GEM=ROM setup up and running? EmuTOS + current MiNT + GEM=ROM leaves roughly 1.7M for applications on a 4M machine (probably a little less with active networking). NOHOG2 still does not work for me. As I didn't attempt this on real hardware yet, there is also no networkin...

Re: FreeMiNT related questions are answered here.

If you tell us where to look.

Last time I attempted to provide patches to Atari related projects, i was ripped to shreds and this is very depressing for a hobby we love..and discourages anyone from attempting any "Use the source"

Can't the ROM GEM process be identified somehow?

Re: VanillaMiNT 2 - need some input

I'd prefer a VanillaMint for 030 und one for 000, individual packages.
I'd love to run a bare setup on a 4MB STE with some RAM to spare for applications (normally 1MB left over is sufficient)

Re: FreeMiNT related questions are answered here.

GEM=ROM Couldn't "see" where the system was stopping before using MiNT 1.19.cur. Installing the latest MiNT package, now can see what the complaint is. This is just a warning - GEM in ROM does a fork here (duplicates itself to start another process) and MiNT recognises the ROM GEM doesn't have a pr...

Re: How to install FreeMiNT - simple step by step guide

In this case we probably need more explanatory articles here?

Networking, USB, XaAES...maybe they all deserve their separate "How to" sections.
I am aware that a lot of information is contained with the releases thesemselves but users have to know where to look for.

Re: What's the difference between various MiNTs?

Tried taking small steps back, then installed Vanilla MiNT 030, I'm still getting a working cursor "bee" and white screen using GEM=ROM/NOHOG.ACC (Is it normal NOT to see nohog active in the drop down menu?) I have been asked that aswell. I tried with EmuTOS and I had no ACC entry in the Desk menu....

Re: How to install FreeMiNT - simple step by step guide

I had to test the simplicity with hatari and EmuTOS, I unzipped the ZIP to my GEMDOS drive and copied the contents from within EmuTOS to the harddisk image. Seems that is not supposed to be working :( Expect users to use this on plain TOS formatted partitions with no frills. *EDIT* And it still seem...

mfro reports it is working for him, debugging efforts are underway. My try was with an install within Hatari btw.

Great explanatioN! I personally now opt for a BareMiNT distribution with GEM=ROM default setting. Haven't spent a lot of time troubleshooting why GEM=ROM didn't work here. Commented out the Xaes declaration. I get to a blank screen (white) almost as if it's stalled, or not finding the desktop. As w...

Re: Bought an USB adapter

I thought, maybe an usb mouse would fit and work with a driver. I am afraid, you will need a Netusbee for that. However that one has a confirmed working USB mouse driver available. *EDIT* If you are only after connecting an USB mouse, maybe something like this would work better: https://www.ebay.de...

Interesting, I'll probably install on my RasPi here. Definitely an interesting project, but you will need a fast machine to run the proxy on (tested it on my Intel i7 4.00 GHz; RasPi 4 is next). Not everything works, but it's an early version. A lot depends on your browser's CSS implementation. Wel...

Welcome to the forum!

I would think this only provides +5V ports and not full USB functionality.
As a full USB only interface adapter would have been announced here sooner or later.
