I've got good news for you Gavin, you're wrong...GavinW wrote:The only RISC OS software to date that can use the ARM 11's VFP is Charm, I think. I am a bit disappointed that BASIC does not appear to have been updated, and even more that Norcroft C and ObjAsm have not. How do I produce an AOF file that uses VFP instructions? Maybe I am not uptodate about this. Cheer me up and tell me that I am wrong, somebody.
No worries, sometimes it gets hard to keep up with things with all these changes going on !GavinW wrote:Many thanks. I was wrong about ObjAsm too. I think version 400 has had the FPU instructions for a while now.
You need a mains powered ""ATA/PATA to USB"" Adaptor, the RPi does not supply enough USB power to spin up the Drivequattrocchi wrote:I'm trying to extract the data from my dead Iyonix. But with so far no good result. I've borrowed a Raspberry Pi model B and I have the RPi running RISC OS RC12a from an SD card, so now I need to connect the master harddrive that was in the Iyonix.
I have an ATA to USB adaptor, the psu powers my Iyonix HDD (green socket to GND) and the USB cable plugged into the RPI.
The psu has been checked OK.
My problem is that no new drive icon appears in RPi when I switch on the HDD and adaptor.
I'm familiar with RISC OS, used a RiscPC and this Iyonix for years. Now unfortunately the Iyonix won't boot up at all.
How can I get the data from the old Iyonix HDD?
Could it be that the adaptor is ATA (not ATX) to USB?
Or use a standard powered USB hub between the PATA/USB adapter and the PI. Probably easier to find & cheaper...fruitoftheloom wrote: You need a mains powered ""ATA/PATA to USB"" Adaptor, the RPi does not supply enough USB power to spin up the Drive
This part is easy. Many tools can remap keys to mouse buttons. I use one on my Lapdock.with only two mouse buttons
You need a Wifi to Ethernet converter. There is no other solution. It's available for 20-40 Euro, depending of models.and get on to the internet with wifi.
Are you sure you only have two buttons? Most modern Mouses (correct plural for computer mouse) have the third button under the scroll wheel, so that pushing down on the scroll wheel middle clicks.Hypatia wrote:Nuffin yet!
Still try yo figure out how to manage with only two mouse buttons and get on to the internet with wifi.
I must agree that it is a bit disheartening that the RPi has not brought more to RISC OS. In the time before the release of the RPi, and shortly after its release everyone was buzzing about the perfect low cost RISC OS computer, now things have calmed to a near whisper.DaveW75 wrote:What am I doing with RISC OS on the Pi?
I intend to make some games - something to pass the time.
Notwithstanding what DavidS said in response to an earlier post of mine, it's a bit demotivating that hardly anyone is making new games for RISC OS, or so it would appear.
I feel a bit more positive about things than this. I think things are happening. Whether it's brand new software, new printed books, new people trying it out for the first time... I think the decline in users has certainly stopped and RISC OS is now growing again.DavidS wrote:I must agree that it is a bit disheartening that the RPi has not brought more to RISC OS.
