That is some nice  creative restoring skills you have there. I enjoy watching it.
Well executed it seems.

I was sent over the cap list for the MDD PS recap shotgun approach and it seems you updated it recently.
I remember you addressed that in this forum but I didn't get to read it properly yet.
Anyway I appreciate your dedication to document that too.

Is it made by Dawicontrol? I do have one of their 3124 controllers.
The new "X" code for 3124 is there, if anyone wants to try it out, feel free to ask.


Its an actual SiliconImage card. This one, except mine has a bracket:

The machine I plan on using this in is strictly 9 for the time being, so I'm patient to wait and happy to be a guinea pig for any os9 testing.

ich kann mich noch erinnern wie ich ewig gebraucht habe bis ich das mit den verschiedenen schriften halbwegs kapiert hatte, denn ich hatte keinen drucker und das war genau diese phase von OS 7.5 bis OS 8.6 wo sich das font zeug dauernd geändert hat.

the mac world is a world of transitions.

aber natürlich hatte ich gigabyteweise tolle schriftschnitte und musste die deshalb bei jeder gelegenheit irgendwo in webseiten (i.e. photoshop) einbauen.

not sure sbout 5, but PT 4 likes a volume limit of <176gb ... there´s lots of info somewhere in the protools sections.

I disabled the ATI Driver Update extension, it now boots into Os9 however at the final step when it launches the desktop the screen goes black. It has done this before as well.

I tried resetting the PRAM and then it try's to boot into Tiger on the first partition but stalls at a white circle and bar. I re-started and using option to select the second Os9 partition and it booted up fine.

However when I tried to put the G4 to sleep it comes up with this message "Your computer cant sleep as some system software is missing. Reinstall the software that came with you computer".

The other odd thing is the desktop shows some driver files I copied onto the desktop of the dual boot Os9 (/Tiger) in the first partition even though I have booted into Os9 installed on the second partition.

The desktop folder is a special folder in the Mac OS, all items on any disk it this folder will show up on the desktop.

You are having some issue with the 'NDRV' for your Rage128, I suspect an issue with you monitor not syncing in OS 9.

OS 9 must be reporting a screen resolution/refresh rate that your monitor doesn't support.

What display are you using and what is the native resolution and refresh rate?

The easiest magic wand is called 3124, the MacOS 9 driver is scheduled and won't be a big challenge.

At this time want to finish the 680-3112-3114 driver.
Do not expect big wizardy regarding that project, 680-3112-3114 is not a very fast chip, but reliable enough and the new code base can be re-used for many more things.

Eagerly awaiting this; the random 3124 I got off ebay is ready and willing!
It does not have the "standard" chip though, but the outlet is socketed. Will I need to swap it out for another chip?

Currently stuck with 680-3112-3114 in Intel, I think that my PCI-PCIe bridge (the cheap one, made in China)  controller is an other junk.
Looked up the Amazon, nothing, but bad reviews. The Startech (made in Taiwan) got good reviews.

The Chinese adapter is great to test the faulty I/O path and time-outs though.

Ja, XPress war in den ersten 4er-Versionen schon eine Katastrophe, das stimmt schon. Ich hab 2002 noch alles mit 3.32 gemacht. Aber an 4.11 ist eigentlich nichts auszusetzen

Aber ATM und Suitcase sind keine Zusatztools, sondern externe Schriftverwaltungen (und ATM halt zur Schriftglättung) die mehr mit dem System zu tun haben als mit Anwendungsprogrammen. Aber grundsätzlich hast Du schon recht, daß die XTensions ein ziemlicher Wahnsinn sind. Wobei auf der anderen Seite, daß überhaupt die Möglichkeit bestanden hat, so umfangreich und tiefgreifend die Möglichkeiten von Programmen zu erweitern schon auch gut ist, und sicher zu einigen sehr professionellen Tools überhaupt erst geführt hat.

Und nein, ich habe Classic nie verwendet! Das ist immer noch eine Frechheit sondergleichen von Apple meiner Meinung nach. Seit kurzem muß ich einen G5 nutzen, und ich ärgere mich jedes mal über das System, und tu mir da sicher nicht Classic auch noch an. Ich bleibe bei 9 wo immer möglich! Weil genau sowas kommt dann raus, Apple überlegt sich einen lustigen Plan wie man alle zum Umstieg auf ein Unix zwingen kann, schreibt einen unzulänglichen Emulator namens Classic, und die halben Macnutzer schimpfen auf MacOS 9 deshalb, … ;)

An OEM card may use the ATI Driver Update extension, so they and disable that and see what happens.
