Re: Archimedes A3010 issues

You can get the ram control line failure when the CMOS IC goes south. Check continuity to the CMOS IC and its associated circuit, and if that looks OK, check RAS/CAS circuit continuity around the RAM. If that's OK, replace the CMOS IC.

Re: Archimedes A3010 issues

Also, make sure you plugged the speaker back in! (I've frequently done that) - make sure you wash off the vinegar with plenty of water before applying IPA, IPA won't get rid of the salts that are formed by either the battery alkaline, or the reaction between the alkaline and vinegar.

Re: Gotek on A3010 Issues

It's actually about the index pulse being received in a timely fashion. There was a fair bit of testing with the A3010 (and beeb 8271 DFS) before Keir managed to get rid of the drive empty issue. It does work fine on my a3010 and A5000.

Re: 10base-2 crossover?

So, in that case, run RPCEmu in bridged mode, set it up just as AUN, it should take a 1.x.x.x address for itself with no gateway, and then your Arc running AUN should be able to see it as long as you're on the same physical subnet? :? Worth a shot, anyway. (I think the whole stack resides in the Int...

The TCP/IP stack is there, in Freeway/ShareFS. It should spot another machine on the same subnet without you having to do anything much extra:

Re: 10base-2 crossover?

. The Net icon that you're seeing in the !Configure app is for Econet, rather than Ethernet. Unfortunately, once again, Econet is not easily installed in a A3010 (though it has been done at least once before) https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/comp.sys.acorn.hardware/RlRrSf5fxeE%5B101-125%5D ....

Don't worry about the mini vacuum :D just wash it all off with water when you wash the vinegar off. Don't forget to remove all things that can be removed first (ie simms, ROMs etc)

Yes. I've seen worse! Get the battery off.

Re: Open source firmware for Gotek floppy emulator released

In FF.CFG put the line

Code: Select all

host = acorn


and you should be OK?


If it still doesn't work, I'll raise a ticket to fix it - it'll just be down to it not detecting the right size for all varients of adf, it can be fixed quite quickly.
