Re: version `GLIBC_2.14' not found

Looks like I figured it out thanks to some help from the Arch devs. Nope, unfortunately it's still looking in /lib for its dynamic linker. If it's not there it will balk. Maybe the reason this library isn't in /lib on Ubuntu has something to do with it being the dynamic linker rather than a normal ...

Re: version `GLIBC_2.14' not found

Well, the `GLIBC_2.14' not found' message disappeared (as reported by 'ldd'). However, I can't get it to execute on Debian SID (64-bit). Output from ldd looks fine, but execve refuses to run it - it exits immediately with 'exec: No such file or directory' (as reported by strace. ENOENT, in any case...

ADF writing experience

ADF writing is very cool, thanks a lot for your continued efforts with this beast. Now I no longer have to boot back and forth between Linux and Windows, creating IPFs from the ADFs with the Amiga-Disk-Utilities package on Linux, then writing them on Windows. However I noticed that ADF writing has a...

Re: All you always wanted to know about IPF

But making a bulk erase drive is easy and straightforward... Supply DC to the head, or use a permanent magnet... Pete Rittwage's nibtools can do just that with a Commodore serial drive. The erase mode simply enables writing, sets the data output to 0 (those are GCR drives with direct firmware contr...

Re: All you always wanted to know about IPF

DrCoolZic, if I understand correctly what IFW is saying there are actually TWO VERY DIFFERENT KINDS of NFA: 1.) Really no flux transitions are present on the disk, a normal FD controller sees random data. 2.) There are in fact flux transitions on the disk, but they're arranged in an ingenious way, s...

Re: Quick question about cable and ability

Do I need to make a special cable to use it with Kryoflux ? This is not a real answer to your question, but you have to be careful with the *power* cable too. AFAIK at least some 3" drives use the same molex plug as 5.25" drives but with voltages on different pins. So you'd need an adapter to run i...

Re: Use as normal A: drive

@malvineous: Yes, except that HD 5.25" drives spin at 360 rpm and use a non-standard 300 kbps write rate for 360K disks; I kind of doubt the USB chips can deal with that. And DD 5.25" drives have only 40 tracks, again something that the USB drive chip might not know about. Maybe new firmware could o...

Re: Empty/corrupt contents with IBM PC disk images?

There are some things about 5.25" PC formats that the default MFM settings don't know about, since they're so general. For example, the fact that 360K IBM PC disks have only 40 tracks. So try adding "-k 2" to the command line. Also, the fact that 1.2MB disks are supposed to spin at 360 rpm; for thos...

Re: Apple II file corruption?

Use DTC's image type 8a "DSK, DOS 3.3 interleave", not 8 "Apple DOS 3.3+ sector image", for all 5.25" Apple II images. By established convention, almost all Apple II emulators expect "DOS order" images, which is what image type 8a produces; they can't deal correctly with the type 8 "sector header or...
