Re: I ruined my AmiCygnix (slightly)

@cygnusEd

What you said (I can't make NetSurf quote it) *did* help. I can now read sci.lang.japan posts in their intirety in Sylpheed.

Darn. Now I have to make a donation.

I'll make another when someone enables *answering* such posts in Japanese possible.

(Why won't Netsurf let me use the "Quote" buuton?)

It turns out "Execute" was not checked. I wonder why?

Anyway, checking it made X11Setup work. Thanks for that.

I ruined my AmiCygnix (slightly)
Just popping in

I've only had the program installed for less than two days, but already messed up part of it.

I was delighted to see that Character Map included the Japanese kanas. What's more, if I went to sci.lang.japan with a Sylpheed NNTP account, messages with kana in them would display the kana.

Kana alone isn't worth much, and the kanji were represented by squares with the kanji's hex code inside, so I thought maybe if there were a complete Japanese font available, it might show the kanji as well. I copied one into AmiCygnix/AmicygnixPPC/share/fonts and tried to relaunch AmiCygnix.

The screen came up, and that was it. Obviously the application did not like what I had done, so I deleted the Japanese font.

The result is--no more hiragana, no more katakana, either in Sylpheed or in Character Map. Wait, that turns out to be not quite true. I get it back if I set the font in Character Map to DejaVuSerif, but still just hex-filled squares in Sylpheed.

Not being able to read kana is no big deal if I can't see kanji too, but suppose I did want to fix this. How much would I have to delete and reinstall?

Hi @cygnusEd
myX11Setup is a very nice Config. manager.


How do you use it? I tried clicking on the icon, but all it get is "Unable to open your tool 'myX11Setup'."

I've looked for ways to run it from inside the AmiCygnix screen, but so far, no luck.

I don't know that I need to run it, but while I was setting the base up yesterday it came to a browser setting, with "/Sys/Utilities/IBrowse/IBrowse" and suggested I go with the default. I did, but that was probably dumb, because there is no such program on my machine.

I guess I could just hand edit Envarc/Cygnix/GOFFICE_BROWSER to where IBrowse is. Or why not to Netsurf?

Re: OWB 3.17

Checking to see if this is a real bug, or just something I'm doing wrong.

Since upping to 3.17, Display > HTML Document in YAM brings up OWB with this in the middle of the window:

Loading file:///RAM%20Disk:T/YAMm0000001c-p2..html failed.
Couldn't read a file:// file

Shouldn't be a YAM problem--I've stuck with 2.5 since it was finished, but until last week, HTML documents displayed just fine.

Tooltypes (was mailto: in OWB 1.2 [That's weird! I meant 3.12])

Maybe this has been mentioned, and I missed it?

Anyway, strange results when I click on a mailto: link in a web page. Sometimes "resolved" bringing up some undesired web site, sometimes resulting in an error message saying the link wasn't resolvable.

With 3.13 this is supposedly fixable with an OpenURL Tooltype, but I don't know how to install Tooltypes. Do I just type "OpenURL=<something>" in the empty Tooltype section of OWB > Information? What sort of thing would "<something>" be?

Google brings up a lot of non-helpful info re OWB Tooltypes.

@joerg

How can one get this?

I'm using version 1.24, which is the newest available on either OS4Depot or Aminet, and which I downloaded in August. (Even it was a major upgrade from what I had been using before.)

I was pleased to see this question. I thought I would have to find their address and e-mail them to see what's up, but I'm not the only one. I'll be patient a while longer.

Egads! Something else I wouldn't have thought to worry about. I assumed the card itself took care of the "support."

pvanni provided a link to a whole lot more food for thought. Now I have to study up on what "GPU R" and "GPU RV" numbers mean.

@AmiDog

Very valuable comments, and I really appreciate the photo. Now I know what a video card should look like.

I had two reasons for not looking for a 7000:

1. I had the idea they weren't available anymore (maybe I checked manufacturers's sites)

2. I assumed the ones with higher numbers would be superior.

Now knowing that I was wrong, I'm going to go for a 7000. EBay has a variety of them--new, used, refurbished; 32MB or 64MB (is 64MB better?); DVI-only, DVI + VGA, dual VGA, DVI + VGA + RCA; some make a point of DDR, whatever that is; 99 cents to about $50 US, plus shipping. I mainly want it as a standby--every once in a while my screen changes colors, or flickers, or goes all wavy...

DVI is newer. Is it better? (My monitor goes either way.)

By the way, every time I log on to EBay, my pass word is rejected, both in IBrowse and AWeb. I go to their new password screen, set up the same old password, and they let me in, until I log out. Then the same thing next time. Anyone else have this problem?

@Niolator

What you say about 2x, 3x, etc., which I take to be speeds (I wonder what "1x" would be?). I didn't notice any "x" numbers in the technical specs of the boards I was looking at, but I'll watch for them before I order.

I remain a little worried. If I decide to buy a 9200SE as seems likely at the moment, or a 9250, are some of these 2x and some 4x or whatever?

I've got a radeon 9200se 128Mb in my A1XE and I can't say that I noticed any slow down from update 4 to OS4 final.


I'm glad you ignored my suggestion about ending the thread.
What Cap said about the 9600 eliminates that as a choice for me. (To tell the truth, I don't even know what 3d has to do with anything.)

There were some figures on the other thread I mentioned that showed the 9200SE as slighly slower than whatever they were comparing it with, and a few guys were making negative jokes about what "SE" might stand for, but you and some others have no complaints, so now all I need to check is how fast or slow it should be compared to the Radeon 7000 board that came in my "stock" G4-XE A1.

Thanks much.

There doesn't seem to be a way to delete a post, but this thread should end here.

I discovered a "What's the fastest ..." thread on this site that gives me lots of hints.

There was one puzzle there, though. Someone says something about the radeon 9600 that suggests it *would* work on an A1, in contradiction of the listing at IntuitionBase.

How to pick a video card
Just popping in
Just popping in


I've just read the "radeon configuration" thread, but it brings up another issue for me.

My video is a bit wavy, especially for some time when I boot up. I'm worried that my card may be getting ready to go. (That would be a bigger problem than losing a hard drive--I'd still be able to boot the other platform if I lose either OS4 or Linux, but having no screen would put me out of computing.)

Each time the worry bubbles to the surface, I recheck what cards work at IntuitionBase's "Compatible Hardware" section, so I know some that work and some that may not. But I have no idea what the differences are otherwise.

What factors should be involved in choosing one? Should I take it for granted that one that "Requires Pentium 4 PC with 256MB RAM and AGP slot, and Microsoft Windows 98/Me/2000/XP/Vista" won't work in an A1? (This is in data about a Radeon 9550SE, and the 9600 is listed at IntuitionBase as one that won't allow UBoot.)

I guess I need to study up on "AGP," "DDR," and maybe etc.

I had been thinking of just going ahead and getting a 9200SE, but someone on the "configuration" thread complains that his slowed down when he went from update 4 to Final.
