Alrighty, it's been some time now.. Had AMIX run on UAE, so i forgot about this for far too long. Has anyone managed to use an RTG card with AMIX?
I've a Domino card, and a Retina Z3. Actually Domino is mentioned in the Wiki, as a possible workaround if one drags drivers from the Gateway UNIX CD.
But i'm in a dillema as to hold on to the Z3 or not. I'm almost sure it's a better card than the Domino, but haven't the luxury to keep them both...
Anyone care to share RTG-Amix experiences?

Thanks for your reply. Is there a way to update 2090A's roms to make it autobootable?


The 2090A is autobooting under 1.3-who knows if unix can autoboot on it.
 it was the first that i know of. the plain 2090 is not.
it probably wont work with a drive larger than 1gb and partitions i think needed to be no bigger than 256MB depending on rom version .
notice jumper j4 turns on/off autobooting(check links below).
the 2090 doesn't follow commodores RDB standard either.

2091's are still around, it would probably be easier/wise to upgrade to a 2091.they are the better of the crappy/slow commodore controllers lol.

Debian-m68k would likely run on your setup; have you considered that route?  You get a nice modern-ish software repository and regularly updated kernel...
Back away from the EU-SSR!
