I'll be able to put my hands on the disks on thursday evening - hope to upload the result friday morning.

Thanks

Re: PDF manual is barely readable in print

It's never been different and should only be a light grey. Quite possible - I gave up remembering the options and decided to print it out. Light grey or not - manual should be easy to read - that's what manuals are for. On my "ink-jet" this "light grey" will wet the paper in a manner that makes it ...

PDF manual is barely readable in print

Hi, Regarding the newest PDF manual that is shipped with Linux (v2.0 Beta 7, 2012-01-17) Someone have made the background dark grey - while that may look smart on the screen it looks like shit when printing the manual - it is barely readable - not to mention the waste of ink !!! Please revert the PD...

Dumping 5.25" 180Kb disks with a 5.25" DSHD drive ?

Hi, It is possible to dump 5.25" 180Kb PC format disks with a 5.25" DSHD drive ? The disks work/run fine in an old IBM XT - dir is ok and programs/utilities can be executed. But when attempting to dump the disks with a DSHD drive - KryoFlux gives nothing but errors. Will it work ? if yes what params...

Re: GUI improvement - combine/reduce the tabs

...which has a fixed version of the GUI which *now* does what I said above, as it didn't previously work with the Linux version just released. Please be more specific ! Do you mean that you re-released the package with new contents but with the same name but with corrections ? If that is the case -...

Re: GUI improvement - combine/reduce the tabs

Been meaning to mention this for a while, but this feature has been implemented, and should be in the latest public version. Thanks for your reply - and thanks for adapting this idea :-) I guess that you implicit means the "Winblows" version ? I'm still waiting for update for linux - last public ve...

Re: Can KryoFlux detect drive capabilities ?

Hi, I think that you've misunderstood my post - I've from the beginning only addressed problems related to 5.25" drives and media - no 3.5" was ever mentioned by me - as I'm aware of the detection hole. I'm specifically asking in respect to 5.25" drives that comes in quite a lot of variations ... bu...

Re: Can KryoFlux detect drive capabilities ?

Unless I'm wrong this sets of another "fire" in respect to Kryoflux write support - writing DD to disks from a HD drive is known to blast neighbor bits. Please enlighten me. Some source or link maybe? I was a teenager in the 80'es and owned a C64 with a 1541 disk drive. As a teenager I was always l...

Re: Can KryoFlux detect drive capabilities ?

AFAIK there is simply no way a floppy drive could report such data to the FDC (kryoflux or any other). That's why you still have to select the drive type in the BIOS Setup even these days with PC floppy drives, when almost everything else is auto detected. That was also what I suspected... ... And ...
