???

MIPS? MFLOPS? ROM vs disk? What?!

900 Mips, 851 Mflops. Vs what it was before. 855 Mips, 823 Mflops.
Doubt it will be 100% accurate as speed changes slightly on ever boot.

AIBB is consistant though. 2 mins  25 secs, every time.
With FPU libraries. 1 min 30 secs every time.

What was “before”? It doesn’t make any sense, why would it be faster with libs in rom rather than loading them from disk? And is FPU even involved in MIPS?

so can I still access my onboard IDE drive in my 1200 and also the microSD card when PiStorm-lite is installed with either AmigaOS3.2.1 or Caffeine OS ?

I don't have a PiStorm32 yet but I've done a lot of research. My understanding is that Emu68 will see both the SD card AND the IDE drive (max 1.6MB/s on each) whereas Caffeine will ONLY see the SD card drive as it works with Type 76 HD partitions (whatever they are). The SD card under Caffeine will act as a 21MB/s HD device (compared to 1.6MB/s max on IDE) so it's probably best to copy the IDE file over to the SD card anyway to make use of the speed increase under that environment! See this for more info:

Exactly what I did. After spending 6 hours, trying to work out why it wasnt working. Turned out actually reading the instrutions (in config.txt) was wrong.

The rule of thumb is: "If everything else has failed, RTFM". Maybe you had forgotten the first part of the rule? ;-)

Best regards,

Think you misunderstood. Its the otherway around. RTFM was wrong. The information is incorrect.

No, you misunderstood him! He highlighted "everything" indicating that the rule is to do everything you can BEFORE reading the manual! i.e. RTFM is a last resort in his opinion because presumably he doesn't always find them helpful (or accurate) himself! You both agree with each other! Celebrate good times!  8)

Exactly. Thanks :-)

I could also have put it this way: Don't resort to RTFM unless you have tried everything else (since you risk being led astray).

(And just for the record: I was joking. I don't necessarily expect every FM out there to be misleading, and I do tend to read them myself.)

Best regards,

Niels

Yes, got you were joking, :). Don't know why they just don't remove it from config file.
