He's German and operates his own company in Berlin, called " ExactCODE GmbH ". The GNU/Linux distros are made with T2SDE , I suppose. I have to take a closer look onto the T2SDE package. EDIT: Also there is a Wikipedia entry about T2SDE https://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=a...

Re: NetBSD <= 4.0.1 @ i80386SX - usability ?

Last evening I installed a DDS tape drive for to know if the new NetBSD kernel recognizes devices on the SCSI bus: indeed! 20180508_234333.jpg 20180509_103316.jpg CF cards are easier to change than hard disks, for sure. "New" CF hard disk (no flash) installed as prerequirement for installi...

Re: NetBSD <= 4.0.1 @ i80386SX - usability ?

Using explicit numbers is only useful if you want to force numbering, or to make sure only one instance of the driver attaches on busses which can't be probed reliably enough. In particular, everything attaching "at isa?" (not "at isapnp?") should have an explicit number. The sy...

Re: NetBSD <= 4.0.1 @ i80386SX - usability ?

I wonder why do you use options MATH_EMULATE if you have the i387? The npx driver enables the use of the system's Numeric Processing Exten- sion coprocessor. The npx driver is required for proper system function- ing regardless of whether or not an NPX is present. Just for seeing the diff, if pulli...

Re: Is it Solaris 1.0 ?

OpenWindows was unbundled for SunOS 4, except with Solaris 1.x. (...) If it has no OpenWindows, it's not Solaris. Verified contents: it contains SunOS 4.1.1 and OW 2.0 but don't define a patch set ("U1" or similar) version. So, if only Solaris labeled CD-ROM's include SunOS 4.1.1 and OW2,...

Re: NetBSD <= 4.0.1 @ i80386SX - usability ?

MHz isn't everything, I agree with you 100%. But the '030 has 32-bit address and data lines to external components, so no problem with memory amount > 16 MiB, which is one (maybe "the") important factor here. ;-) 20180303_133559.jpg The CPU board of my PCD-3Msx (hostname cupido ) fits insi...

I prepared a new kernel configuration file based on the GENERIC_TINY with some adjustments. I'm unsure if all my decisions will lead into a working kernel. I used the following URLs (excl man pages): ⋅  http://netbsd.gw.com/cgi-bin/man-cgi?options+4.i386+NetBSD-1.6.2 ⋅  https://w...

Re: Sun WorkShop Question

Or maybe your Solaris 2.6 is already too "new", means the libs linked against are out of scope.
Double-check with ldd, just in case.

Re: Sun CG12 / GS aka Matrox SG3-1152B graphics accelerator for 3D solid applications

History is interessting to me. :) After looking into dozens of documents and magazines I'm quite sure the Matrox SG3-1152 (Sun GS) and MG-3D Series share the same graphics features, architecture, chips. The SG3-1152 was unveiled by Sun in end of 1990 together with the SS2 (^1) as OEM product, the MG...
