Browsers, FTP, & Remote Control / Re: What browser works in OS 9.1 ?
« Last post by Greystash on July 12, 2019, 06:06:24 PM »
If you're planning on browsing purely for information you can disable stylesheets (CSS), images and javascript on most browsers - meaning it will only load page text. I did this for a while on Internet Explorer but kept hitting barriers with HTTPS (little support in Classilla and pretty much none in IE). Google still works over HTTP but almost every modern site built and managed today is served over HTTPS.
I ended up building a web scraper that pulls info/news/posts etc. from the sites I wanted and served it on an HTTP only site for myself. It served static content over HTTP and updated every hour or so which works great on IE and Classilla (super fast!).

Fantastic, I'm going to dig into this and try it out now and see how far i get.  Glad to know it is in fact possible because it's seemed like everything i do points to non usb stuff.

you need to install FreeMIDI 1.48, regardless of whether you are using OMS or FreeMIDI to communicate with it. The FM 1.48 installer will place USB MOTU drivers into your OMS folder as part of its installation. I just tested this to be sure and sure enough, it installs three drivers into the OMS folder: MOTU Device Database, MOTU OMS Driver, and MOTU USB OMS Driver.

MOTU still provides it on their website:

Yeah………That's the ticket……

apparently the adaptec 1205sa uses a 3112 chipset?
i found this forum post where a guy talks about modifying Silicon Image drivers to include the adaptec PCI device IDs and it works:
https://www.techspot.com/community/topics/adaptecs-1205sa-users-heres-what-i-sent-to-adaptec.27250/

these cards pop up on ebay a lot, there's one right now as low as $9.

It is kinda difficult to imagine that this specialist OS9 based app can do things better than PS on modern powerful Intel machine, but I'd love to be proven wrong. Where can I get my evaluation copy, Waeshael? ;)

Thanks for making it possible to resuscitate 4 old G4's (2 x PB, 1 x QS, 1 x B&W) and turn them into 9.2.2 afterburners, just dropped $100 into the jvbonanno-cookie-jar. The main goal has been to reacquire the tools to edit sort-of-ancient MIDI-synths, primarily for the Yamaha VL1 and the Hartmann Neuron, but even for all the others the Diver can handle. It all works so far! Great success!

It's a sad fact of life that there are NO/none/nada/squat/zero good OS9 browsers anymore.
The internet has evolved far away from all of them and old Mac OS hardware in general.

Install Classilla. It's as good as you can get in OS9. It will far outperform IE and while there will be sites it may barely function on - or not at all - this site will NOT be one of those. On sites where it gets "stuck", you can sometimes improve it by using a different User Agent selection in the prefs. At the end of the day however, you simply need a modern browser on the modern internet. There's no way around it.

If you launch OMS Studio setup and search with both the modem and printer boxes UNchecked, it should find your interfaces.
That is assuming you have OMS 2.3.8 and you used the OMS installer which would have installed an OMS-USB driver in your System folder.

Alternatively, I seem to recall there's a way in Freemidi setup to emulate OMS. Since you're (I assume) using Freemidi with your MOTU interfaces, that would seem to be a better idea. If D-Sound is "asking" for OMS only, maybe it pre-dates Freemidi.

See if any of that helps.

Sometime System Extentions Conflict. and I dont want to Hunt down Conflicting Software Tha I may not be using.
Honestly, that sentence makes no sense. So, I'll guess that you're just concerned about Extension conflicts. That is a well-known and long-hated little pain in the butt gifted to Classic Mac OS users. Generally, it's not something you try to "prevent" because it's pretty much unpredictable. You just deal with it if and when it happens.

There are a few apps made specifically for finding and curing extension conflicts - the best and most well-known of which is "Conflict Catcher" available on Macintosh Garden.
