Re: BP6 + BeOS & Haiku

A friend has 3*256 ready for when we meet. I suspect some RAM DIMM to not help with stability, it was...

Re: BP6 + BeOS & Haiku

Ok all done! Some pads were in the middle of ground planes and were very hard to empty, I ended up heating and gently pushing the new cap leg inside since I couldn't get my pump to get the solder out. I was tempted to replace the few smaller ones left, I probably would have if it wasn't as cumbersom...

Re: BP6 + BeOS & Haiku

Hmm, while checking with the multimeter I noticed there was 50 ohm on EC10, I hope I didn't create a short. But maybe that's normal because of the surrounding circuit. Anyone can check on theirs ?

BP6 + BeOS & Haiku

Hi everyone, I've been a BeOS user for like 10 years, and developer, then moved to Haiku which tries to rewrite it as Free Software. I'm also a Debian user. I was given a BP6 to help me develop software for BeOS faster than on my K6-2 350 looong ago, before I had more powerful machines. I kinda like...
