Re: MKpart_exe for Q40 & Q60

Had a look at the other thread "Q40 & Q60 Roms" it looks like hard work and I think I will leave EPROM programming for the experts. If you are okay with creating the images yourself (as that involves your taste in configuration) I'm pretty sure someone will program them for you. Easie...

FPC requires too much resources ever to run on a QL.
Even the Q68 would be at the limit memory-wise, and very slow.

Re: Q68 QoE Ethernet Driver

Many thanks for the update. I have not yet been able the find any useful information about the autowrite issue. It appears that autowrite is not used in any publicly available driver code, which looks suspicious. I would not be surprised if this is actually a hardware bug in the CP2200.

That's why I initially asked if you'd replace the CPU also. It was not totally obvious for me that you own hundreds of PLCC 68008. ;)
These CPUs are probably cheaper than the sockets mentioned above?

Re: Today I Received...

I say V2 because they released a "Coldfire" family member before the version Nasta used. So yes, the MCF5102. I wonder which chip you mean. To my knowledge the MCF5102 is the first generation Motorola Coldfire CPU, hence the 51xx. Coldfire V2 is a standing expression for the 52xx range. O...

Re: QL Ethernet expansion card project

The struggle is real... qdos-gcc to the rescue. Unfortunately, the libraries still seem to come from the C68 distribution but at least the optimiser works plus there's a functioning inline "asm" directive which makes it easier to work around some of the more ....ahem... "interesting&...

Re: Today I Received...

The FLX68000 is an interesting chip for a future "improved Gold Card" but would only come close to SGC speeds. A potential point for the FLX68000 versus SGC would be costs and availability. But that alone hardly justifies the development work - also on the software side! Now, the Coldfire...

Re: Ethernet for the QL

I recently ordered a bunch of MPE-GARRY 006-1-032-D-B3STF-XS0. Best pins for such a task, just frigging expensive. Indeed. € 4,23 and one needs two of them. But at least a possibility. SMD mounted turned pins on the lower side of the board, leaving the top side completely free. How can you leave th...
