it's not "needed". but i wouldn't be without it. yeah, i'd do that 1meg mod if you have the right agnus to do it. Also, you wont lose the "slow ram" at 0x00C 0000 as from the new gold2.8 core, this is moved or created if you've done the chipram mod - by the vampire to it's 128meg memory area. i only...

it won't fit without some form of riser on the CPU socket. I have a minimega chip in my rev5 a500 and the 1meg hack to give me 2meg chip ram, and i'm currently using a clockport adapter from individual computers in the 68k socket - to lift the vampire so it fits over the megachip board sat in the ag...

Hi all, I've installed r42 of ApolloOS, and now r43 is out, I thought i'd give ipm a go. ipm update seems to tell me that i'm on the current version? ipm packages doesn't seem to indicate that there is anything new to download? it's all a bit academic for me atm anyway, was having drive detection pr...

ok so the freewheel software I have is version 2.2.1, and I don't have a mx1000.driver, I have cocolino.driver, and that is version 1.3c I haven't seen any problems you describe, BUT closer inspection; I did wipe out my old s:user-startup when I copied over the ApolloOS off of my A600. Looking at a ...

that's odd, I've got a Cocolino on my A500, and ok fine I've only got a basic 3.9 install, but I have no problems with the freewheel software. i'll do some more testing tonight as I've just copied over the system drive of my ApolloOS A600 to my A500 and see if anything is different or if I can repli...

indeed :)

makes me wonder how much logic space is left on the FPGA or if we're running out of gates yet?

yeah I hear that. we've been able to access reasonably current, if obviously lower powered graphics cards for ages. PCI to PCIe bridges that operate mostly transparently to the software Kernel/OS layer have been around for ages. iirc the last of the line AGP cards were just PCIe GFX chips with a bri...

I'm just gonna pretty much just repeat what Guibrush said really... surely the idea of an FPGA is you can build in whatever you need, right into the chip? RTG and enhanced graphics? check. Ethernet? check. storage? check. AHI or enhanced audio? potential check? that's the main four (current that I c...

wow, 2620+! this is bonkers! :D I'm just worried about how the team are holding up. Is there anything we can do to help? send beer? make packing boxes? I'm not really in the market for "another machine" so a stand alone isn't going to interest me. I certainly don't need another PC-like box machine t...

awesome work to all involved. I love this sort of stuff! I have a rev5 A500, will I need to take the 2meg agnus out of the mini megachip board that I have - currently giving me 2meg chipram and put that directly into the agnus socket on the board; or can I just pull out the minimegachip and re-insta...
