 Can someone email a working XF86Config file to me
 please?

Update from earlier: I've put my working X3.3.6 config at

http://www.nbarnes.easynet.co.uk/libretto/XF86Config 

and an untested but generated by XFdrake at the same time X4 config at

http://www.nbarnes.easynet.co.uk/libretto/XF86Config-4

Enjoy.

 Subject: Redhat 7 on a Lib70

 Hi,
 As a Linux newbie I am trying to get Redhat 7 running
 on one of my Lib 70 machines. I have it installed and
 running but cannot start X. It tries and then bombs
 out. The log file shows that it tries PCI without any
 joy then fails as it tries for an ISA bus device. I
 have set it as the CT65550 chipset and 31.5 Horizontal
 refresh rate.

 Can someone email a working XF86Config file to me
 please?

Experience with Mandrake 7.1, 8.2, and 9 suggests that X4.2 has serious 
problems with the lib 50/70. As far as I can tell, the latest version of 
X4.2.1(?) does actually work on the lib but it's detection stuff doesn't 
work, so it sulks on the configuration stage.

I think this is to do with the lib running the video chip on the vesa bus, and 
X4 looks on the PCI and AGP busses.

Not that there's enough memory on the lib to do an install past M7.1 anyway...

I have an idea that Redhat 7 is roundabout equivalent to Mandrake 8 - in which 
case it will come with KDE2 or 3, both of which are serious resource hogs on 
the lib. The best solution I came up with was M7.1 with kde1.3 apps, using 
icewm as the window manager.

Having said that, the 3.3.6 drivers work a treat...I'll fire up the lib and 
post something.

Some of those plastic bits are mostly magnesium alloy, I think. But I think

What?!? No postings on this? No one to say- it MUST be the cable or it
NEEDS a new LCD? Anyway I took the LCD out and it looks like it would
be pretty easy to work on.

Oh well, if you insist :)

Almost certainly *not* the cable... but if the LCD is anything like the 
50/70 (ignoring the extra width) there are all sorts of traps for the 
unwary, including components and wires glued to the glass in ideal places to 
crack it if you're not *very* careful.

First off, there are two Libretto lists ( which is beyond me... )

1on Yahoo!groups

1on basiclink.com ( the one with all the cmd:unscribble problems )

Now, the basiclink one is using a mailing list software ( I forget the name
but *I* should not since I used it myself once ) that uses an account to
recieve and remail the emails. Perhaps this is the account Daniel is using
to remail. But I thouht he was based in the US???


Me too...

Ah well, no doubt all will be revealed in the fullness of time.

   I plan on removing the plastic cover over the hard drive and the thin 
foams. Adorable Libretto states that there is not a problem in doing this. 
Why were they put in the first place? To reduce heat?

Ya know, if there's been any discussion on this, I must have missed it, or 
it was a long, long time ago.  I was wondering this myself, and was 
guessing that it may have something to do with providing a shock absorber 
for the drive as it's jostled about during use.


I'd guess they're just there to stop the original thin drive rattling 
around.

Subject: BIOS problem

   I have a Libretto 50CT. I tried to boot it today but the BIOS
messages did not come up. I turned it off, but it went to hibernation
with a long series of beeps. I tried it turn it on several times but
nothing came to screen. I tried it again after a break and it stated
that there was no ROM in the system and that I needed to use Toshiba
key. I have no idea what this is.

   I tried turning it on and off again several times and at one point it
counted the memory. After several tries it passed that stage and asked
the password. I typed it but it did not continue loading up the system.

   I do not know how I messed up the BIOS but is there a way to save
this baby? Thanks.

The bios can be replaced if you have a *720kB* formatted floppy with a bios 
image on it - I have 6.50 available on my web site at 
www.nbarnes.easynet.co.uk/Binaries/1014v650.exe which is iirc an executable 
which will build the proper disc image (it's a long time since I did one!). 
Once you have the image, start the machine with the f12 key pressed.

*HOWEVER* it probably isn't the bios: symptoms sound more like dodgy memory. 
Try removing the expansion ram, and then reseating it. Maybe you can get 
into the bios by starting with the esc key pressed, then f1?

Other thoughts - if the machine's had a thicker disk fitted without the disk 
spacers removed, it could have cracked the main mobo memory :( :( :(

Maybe the bios battery? Leave the machine plugged to the mains overnight and 
then try?

Hmm..how does this work without the bios floppy calls? Is there a
seperate floppy driver bios for recoveries?


Tell you the truth, I don't know. I have no evidence, but have postulated 
that there's a writable bit and a non-writable bit of the eeprom, or two 
eeproms - one of which holds the basic loader. Only needs to be probably 256 
bytes to get the first sector, after all...

I do know I've rebuilt non-starting and otherwise crashed bioses using it 
though, though I'd think one of the other causes I mentioned as being more 
likely.

  The point has been made many, many times, but the way viri like these
  sods
  now work is to not only send mail TO everyone in a contact list in
  Outlook,
  but also set the FROM address to be someone in the outlook address 
book.

Unless I'm missing something, isn't the obvious solution don't use
Outlook?  Regardless of Outlook's intrinsic merits or demerits, it's by
far the most popular target for viruses of any email program.  So why not
use something else?

The problem isn't that WE are using Outlook. The problem is that whoever is 
INFECTED is using Outlook and unfortunately has Nick's (or whoever's been 
spoofed's) email address in THEIR address book. That's the problem with 
this virus, it pretends to be from other people (in this case it pretends 
to be from Nick) so the actual infection is a lot harder to trace, 
especially if the email servers along the way don't mark the email. I could 
be using the Pine mail client and Nick could be using the Elm mail client 
(both about as virus proof as you could get as far as this sort of stuff is 
concerned) but if a salesman who's got both our emails is using Outlook and 
is infected, Nick could get a flood of Klez virus emails that look like 
they're from me and vice versa, and if the email servers along the way 
don't mark the emails, he'd have no way of knowing they were NOT from me 
(unless of course he knew that the Klez virus actually does this).

Agreed - those of us who Mode: Holier than thou *don't* use Internet 
Exploder and Lookout are pretty confident that we didn't originate this. 
/Mode :)

Though I'm being careful not to point any fingers without evidence (there's 
certainly no evidence that it's come from Nick), and it's damn hard to find 
anything that these viruseseses leave behind them, apart from damage...

Klez and/or nimda are smart enough to examine the hard drive - in particular 
the explorer cache - to find useful addresses, apparently.

 Okay, I've gone through the archives until my eyes were red and dry.
I've managed to get nowhere with this.

I've got a Lib 110 with a 12 GB HDD, no CD-ROM drive, and a spare desktop

snip nightmare

Thanks,

You don't say what else was on the windows box on which you did the 
installation - the impression I got from the note was that it was as a 
secondary disc. In which case, you've possibly stuffed up the partition 
table/boot sector...

Something very odd there - I'd be very inclined to do the installation all 
on the lib though - I've done it in 32M on 70, though it takes a while:

Fdisk as you have done, with 70M either side of cylinder 1024.

Format the first partition so it's bootable into dos (e.g. W98 startup disk) 
and format the second partition as fat16 or 32.

Put the drive into your desktop. You don't want to boot from it.

Copy the I386 directory from the W2K installation disk to the second 
partition.

Return the disc to the lib, reboot, launch setup.exe or winnt.exe from the 
I386 files you put on the second partition (it's been a while, can't 
remember which) and it should all spring to life.

it would *seem* to me that it therefore spoofed [EMAIL PROTECTED] but in 
fact came from [EMAIL PROTECTED] ...

Yep, that's where the pacbell address showed up - as the original sender in 
the backtrail 'received from' field (with me as the spoofed sender). I don't 
know how to spoof that one - it's bolted on by the intermediate mail

Neil,

After reading a bit more about Nimda, Klez, their variants and 
capabilities, I wonder if perhaps it's more reasonable to assume that 
you’re problems are being caused by a form of one or more of these viruses, 
and not by some individual misappropriating your email address.

As far as I can tell, it looks like the posts allegedly from me and other 
list members are courtesy the nimda virus - someone on the list has it, and 
also has our addresses in his/her address book.

The other - my easynet address, which most of you will never have seen - is 
not I think *targetted* at me, but more likely that my address has been 
harvested from my website or similar location, and used on a forged email 
spam advertising a 'change the size of bits of your anatomy' website. I've 
traced it as far as a dial-in account on a uu.net service, and the same 
account has been used for three separate spam attacks (I get the rude 
messages from the spamees, or from mail servers when the name bounces) so 
I've passed that to [EMAIL PROTECTED] to see what they do. So far, only an auto 
reply, but (fingers crossed) I haven't had a fresh burst of spam bounces in 
the last few days...

Neil

From: Lines, Nick [EMAIL PROTECTED]
Subject: RE: [LIB] Klez/etc

The point has been made many, many times, but the way viri like these sods
now work is to not only send mail TO everyone in a contact list in Outlook,
but also set the FROM address to be someone in the outlook address book.

So please can we stop the witch-hunt?  This list is, by and large, very
computer literate and knows the dangers of opening an attachment called
seemygirlfriendshowernekkid.exe from someone.

All it takes is someone to think, ah, Neil's a useful chap, I'll add him
to my contacts, get something nasty and then for everyone else to wait for
the fallout.  It ain't pretty.

As you say, Nick, it ain't pretty. But there are other issues, which is why 
I've taken up this here and the other (unrelated) problem with my ISP:

o *Someone* on the group, in all likelihood, has the virus. It behooves us 
to try and draw their attention to it, so that they can do something about 
it. The difficulty we're having is that people don't seem to have enough 
info to trace the original sender. I can't trace because hotmail doesn't 
maintain the header info - perhaps Daniel can unpick the original round of 
postings?

o I'm not convinced that *everyone* on this group is equally computer 
literate. For example, I'm much more of a hardware and low level type than 
others, who know pretty much all there is to know about (frex) the various 
Windows. People join the list for info - this is surely something about 
which they should be aware, no?

o Finally, I want to make sure that *I* don't end up TOSsed as a spammer. 
The only way to do that is to chase down and document the spam that has my 
name on it. Agreed, that's more of a problem for my ISP and the easynet 
account than here, but equally, so many people know and use the nailed 
barnacle account that I don't want to lose that. It doesn't take many 
complaints from people who *aren't* aware of the various viruses to lose a 
service.

So, I'd add my voice to Nick's: This is not, should not be, and if I have 
anything to do with it, will not become a witch hunt. However, I *do* think 
that we should try and locate where this virus came from, and disinfect it. 
This is not a question of blame, but of self preservation. If we take the 
attitude that 'oh, it's just a virus' then the scumbags have won. Not here.

Cheers,

Neil

32 Mb is too short for Xwindows applications. Lib 100/110 has 64 Mb and can 
work with them.

Not as such - if you don't need the latest apps, like kde2 and later, then 
something such as mandrake 7.1 and Icewm is quite usable. There are two 
problems: screen real estate is a bit small now software writers assume you 
have rather more than 640*480 to draw pages on, and the kde DCOP server uses 
a lot of resources.

I bought a PA2498 battery for L70 on ebay and used a Dremel tool to remove
extra plastic and make it look like PA2503 for L100. It works. It's ugly. 
Do
you want to me take some pictures of it?

Yes please - I'm considering ripping a dead 50 battery to bits for the 
'socket' and a dead mobo for a 'plug' to make an adaptor cable so I can use 
the portege long-life (5000mA/hr!) battery with the lib...I've had 8 hours 
on the portege with it, and it's four times the normal 50/70 battery 
capacity :)

I have a *feeling* that the only significant connections for powering the 
lib are the ones at opposite ends - ie the + and -; I think the others are 
only used to charge the beast, except maybe one with the state of charge 
info data?

I use a Sandisk card reader to download pictures from my Canon digicam to

(64mgs of RAM and a 4.3 HD). I drag and drop from the card reader file to a 
file
in My Documents, I can download 20-30 pictures of about 600Kb's each in

seconds. This is about the same time as my 1024 RAM, 80G PC.

Heh - observing that there are 5 by 4 digital scanning camera backs for 
proper sized cameras, which seem to use a single row scanner as they take a 
few tens of seconds to grab the picture (and yours for the budget sum of 
only $25000 US), I have my eye on an old 'roll it along' hand held 
scanner... A little bit of engineering (i.e. botching at track and a motor) 
and I could have something interesting there... I could import images 
straight into Word (ack, no , stop that!)

 CardBus is PCI in a PC Card form factor.  It is definitely a major
 change from the 16-bit cards.  It simply isn't possible to double the
 bus in software.  Unless someone has released a 16-bit USB PC Card
 while I wasn't looking you cannot have USB on your L-50.

That's how a 8 bit is changed to 16 bit on my palmtop according to the
sdk. Don't see why it wouldn't work for 16 to 32 bit.


Cos the pins aren't in the same places; cos the controller chip can't do it, 
and cos the cards expect to use a 32-bit wide data bus. Bugger!

How do you know what the controller chip will do? Do you have specs on
it? Difficult to add another 16 data pins and keep the same number
(68) of total pins. So what do you think they got rid of? Some address
pins? power supply? Ground?:) I wouldn't be surprized if cardbuss
isn't already software doubling the pins to get what they need
already. Remember they do need to keep backwards compatibilty plus
hardware is expensive.

As you can see, *everything* is in a different place, apart from the power 
and a couple of control pins. It looks like the cardbus spec multiplexes the 
data and address buses - that would tie in with PCI bus, IIRC.

As to knowing what the controller chip will do - that's plain logic: why 
would the manufacturers build in a capability for a system that didn't exist 
when it was designed, and if they did, why didn't Tosh put a cardbus type 
slot in?

Of course, the big giveaway is the bit in the spec sheet 
(http://www.abcsinc.com/small-linux/notes.htm) that says '8 and 16 bit card 
interface' grin

You are mistaken.

You can have 3.3V 16bit cards.  They are keyed the same way that 3.3V
CardBus cards are keyed, but lack the attracive copper dimples.

I have several 3.3V 16-bit cards in my pccard collection.

The real issue with CardBus is that the 32-bit bus requires a special
CardBus bridge.  The Libretto L50 has only a PCMCIA bridge, which only
supports the 16-bit cards.  If you file down the 3.3V 16-bit cards,
they will work in a Libretto 70 (and I'm pretty sure a 50 too).

Is that empirically observed, or theory? I'd think that if the 50/70 driver 
had 3.3v drive capability, it would have a socket suitable to accept the 
cards - though it's a long time since I've looked at the spec :)

Subject: replacing CMOS battery in Libretto 50

Would somebody care to share with me their experience in replacing a CMOS
battery in a Libretto 50?
I'm not so keen on opening the Libretto unless adequately prepared with
knowledge as to putting it back together properly.
Perhaps there's a good guide floating around - with pictures?

There certainly is. You can download a pdf (2.5MB) from my site at 
www.nbarnes.easynet.co.uk/libretto/li50_70ct.pdf of the tech manual - 
complete with nice pictures.

However - quick precis:
Remove battery and power;
remove seven screws from the bottom of the case (don't try and split it 
yet);
turn it over and remove the keyboard trim strip (it lifts at the top right 
of the keyboard);
remove screw at top centre of keyboard (you'll be getting a good collection 
of screws at this time);
remove keyboard (two screws through silver thingy, plus a flat cable 
connector - carefully push the retaining latch out about 1mm to release the 
cable);
remove retaining screw and memory expansion if fitted;
remove silver thingy - two screws over processor heatsink;
remove screen connector;

and at this stage, if I haven't forgotten anything; you'll be able to split 
the top and bottom of the case apart. Motherboard remains in bottom half, 
battery is plugged in left hand side at the main battery end.

In the immortal words of the Haynes workshop manuals: reassembly is a 
reversal of the above procedure... note that most of the screws are the same 
as each other, but the ones that hold the silver thingy to the heatsink have 
a wider shank than the others, and the one that holds the memory expansion 
in has a wider flatter head. You could remove the disk if you feel nervous 
about it.

Cheers,

Neil

ballooning solo around the world, one of the 'classical' milestones has 
just

No doubt about it - that's a 50 or 70 indeed. Just caught it on the 6

Thinks... I wonder how much *that* one would go for on eBay?

 I suspect the timing requirements for USB are not meetable.

Are you saying  the minimum data speeds are hardwired and it only
sends and recieves at those speeds and the usb controller  will stop
and give you an error if its not transmitting fast enough? That would
be a problem and make usb a really inflexible method of a data
interface. If all a person wanted was a usb-like interface with the
same pinout, so it can be used with any usb equipped laptop, and
wanted to use it as something like a programming interface speeds
become much less revelant. Plus since many micro controllers use 8 and
16 bits  busses it couldn't be used with those. I guess serial will
live on.

Tell you the truth, I haven't investigated in detail. There are three speeds 
defined for USB2 - 1.5, 12, and 480Mb/s - only one of which is capable of 
being handled by 16-bit pcmcia if the data is coming continuously. I guess 
if the device isn't capable of handling all the modes - e.g. high speed 
isosynchronous continuous data - then it doesn't qualify as USB. Hence, no 
logo, hence no parts.

If you have a couple of hours to kill, the full specification is online at 
www.usb.org

 Hi all,

types
 unfortunately, and the L50 doesn't support CardBus.
 
 Any ideas?
 
 I will be holidaying with my L50 in tow and a digital camera, and I was
 thinking og buying an extra credit card-sized camera for my son, but they

It might be possible but a driver wold have to be written. The 16 bit
bus would have to be doubled in software to 32 bits. Its done
sometimes with an 8 bit bus to get 16 bits and seems to work on 16 bit
cards. Donno if it'll work for cardbus. Depends on if the actual
pinout is differant on a cardbus and 16 bit slot. But as far as I know
it isn't since the pcmcia revisions have all been in software since
about 2.0

The pinouts are not only different, but they're selected by the driver chip 
depending which system is required. The data/address bus stuff isn't (e.g.) 
multiplexed onto the same pins, it uses different pins in different 
positions. Without the hardware, you're stuffed. And, strictly, a Cardbus 
card shouldn't even *fit* into a PCMCIA 16-bit slot.

There main problem with USB cards seems to be that the maximum data rate is 
too low on the sixteen bit systems. According to the PCMCIA-CS howto, the 
maximum rate is only about 2-3Mb/s, irrespective of the hardware.

Is that simply to keep to specs? Or would it cause tranmission
problems?


I think that's the maximum rate the processor can get data to the bus. 
There's no DMA AFAIK, and it's a slow 16-bit bus. It doesn't cause errors on 
even a 100M network card, it just can't use all the available network 
bandwidth (though the data it gets is still noticably faster than with a 
10M).

I suspect the timing requirements for USB are not meetable.

adjust the angle if the lid.  The system suddenly losses power, and leaves 
me with a orange blinking AC power adaptor LED, the far right of the 4 
LEDs.  Pressing the power button at this point boots the system fine, and 
then I can shut it down with the battery and AC adaptor LEDs glowing green 
normally.

Doctor, doctor, it hurts when I do this!
So, don't do it. Next! :)


The only connection between the lid and main body of the system I can think 
of is the ribbon cable.  So I opened up the top of the system, and 
re-seated the ribbon several times hoping it might clean an oxidized 
connection.  But the problem still persists.

That's the only way conection, though there is the microswitch to detect the 
lid closure.


I don’t know if this is related, but the lid seems to be separating along 
the seam on the bottom right side (facing the screen) by the hinge.

Hmm - has there been any damage? The ribbon is wrapped a couple of times 
round the hinge pin to provide room for it to move without stretching as the 
display moves.

Orange blinky power light suggests unhappiness in the battery department. 
Are you able to try this with another cell? Perhaps the case flexing as you 
move the lid is causing a problem in the battery unit or in the connector. 
Or, can you try it without the cell at all, just external power? (Caveat: I 
believe the book says don't run without the batteries. I have run for short 
periods without apparent harm without them - your mileage may vary.)

Ok.

The deal was too good to miss.

I bought another laptop, and...


it wasn't a libretto.

But it's still a tosh - a portege 7020.

I still have (and will continue to use) two librettos, if that's any help, 
but this one's a bit more heavyweight for writing software...

Public humiliation and abuse may now commence.

Good point Raymond. But, why would it come with an external power supply?

Well OLDER CD-ROM drives used to come with them because some notebooks
couldn't power them (my Teac 10x did for instance even though it runs fine
straight off the libby). I find it hard to understand why a Cardbus one
would need an external pack though given that you'd expect only newer
laptops would have Cardbus and that they'd have the appropriate power
circuitry. I mean, you can draw a good few hundred mA out of the PCMCIA
port of your average laptop at least (worryingly, this Teac drive recons it
needs 1.5A at 5V but I doubt its really drawing that much as it doesn't
seem to make much of a dent in my battery life) ...

If you have an external PSU you can (e.g.) get proper operation if the 
laptop supply is a bit dodgy - some of the freecom units like an external 
feed. Alternatively, you can use it without the laptop to play audio CDs on 
(a bit radical, I know!)

Subject: English power pack?

I'm contemplating buying a cardbus CD-RW via a German auction for my L110. 
The
seller says that it comes with an English power pack rather than a German
one...I assume that this is a power supply that operates on that 
funny
voltage they have in the UK? Is there any way it could be converted to work 
on
US current?

Probably just means it has a sensible BS1363 three-square-pin plug instead 
of the German Schuko type. Both countries use 230V, allegedly, it's just 
that we crank it up a bit and the Germans crank it down a bit.

If it's a switchmode PSU it will probably work well on 110V, but if it's a 
transformer type, you're probably out of luck. You can get transformer 
adaptors, but you're probably as well off taking a trip to radio shack.

synthetic lubricants tend not to gump up and gum up after lots of use, 
thus they won't clog up and lock up the drive rails once more...

Okay guys... I presume that since these are relatively delicate mechanisms, 
I'd want a pretty light grade lubricant.  I'll check AutoZone, and perhaps 
a can of pure silicone spray with a directable WD40 style tube.

-=*CAUTION*=-

If you can check a suitable lubricant with the manufacturer, do so. I've 
never been inside one of these beasties, and I don't know which of the many 
nylons they use. Many pro-audio CD players use a white grease rather than a 
thin lube - I think there is a danger of chemical reaction with the plastics 
if the wrong stuff is used. If David has had good results with his solution, 
you're probably best using it.

I came in a little late on this thread also, so appologies if this has

external
keyboard and mouse simultaneously on a 100CT?

I bought one at the same time I bought my Libretto, and have been using
external keyboard and mouse ever since whenever I am using the machine
at home. The only odd thing I have never been able to explain is that it
only works properly if I plug the mouse into the socket labelled 'keyboard'
and the keyboard has to go into the mouse socket..

That's cos it's been wired incorrectly! (the mouse and keyboard use 
different pins - a sensible design would carry all six pins through, but 
there you go!)

But something I noticed is a bunch of CD player style control buttons.  So 
I clicked the 'play' button, and lo and behold, music came out of my 
speaker from the CD!

I was always under the impression that the OPL3-SAx chip on the L50/70s 
couldn't play music CDs through the speaker.  Is this yet another something 
I've spaced out on all these years?  Or might it have something to do with 
this HP M820E SCSI CD-ROM drive and the Nero extraction software?

Two options - either the cdplayer is sending audio down the only audio 
channel available (the speaker line which I assume is used by modems), or 
the Nero software is ripping it digitally and rebuilding the bits before it 
plays them. As that what Nero's written for, I'd guess that's what it's 
doing :)

I was, but I don't know whether that's used, and indeed whether the opl3 has

maintain SB compatability.

If it can extact the audio right from the CD, why would it have to rebuild 
it?  Do you mean rebuild in the MP3 format and play the audio on the fly?  
It would seem the digital audio data on the CD would have to be processed 
in some way in order to be piped into an analog amplifier and fed to the 
speaker.  But couldn't that data just be converted right to an analog audio 
signal?

No, I meant putting the bitstream (complete with error correction and 
interleaving and checksums and whatever) into a PCM feed and throwing it at 
a replay buffer. No point turning it into MP3 and then back again!

The chip itself has analog inputs but they're not brought out to external
connectors on the L50/70 so the CD player would have no way of piping audio
to them (there isn't an analog audio line in the PCMCIA slots).


Well, pin 62 is labeled 'SPKR' on the pcmcia standard for i/o devices, which 
suggests *some* sort of audio - but what it's attached to inside the lib, 
and indeed, what it's for, I have no idea!

Best guess is it's intended for modems - but if that's so there's no reason 
why it couldn't be done for a mono feed from a CD player.

Subject: Hard Drive Size on the Libretto 70

I'm looking at upgrading the hard drive in my libretto 70 from the 1.6GB
standard 9.5mm 2.5 inch drive. Are they any limitations on the size of the
drive I can put in? I have 30GB and 6.4GB drives that fit the physical
specs - what would I have to do to get them working?

Well as long as the drive is 9.5mm in height it'll physically fit (just
make sure you can pretty much drop it into the slot and it'll go in ... you
may need to remove some spacers from the bottom of the drive bay as there
IS some variability in height even amongst 9.5mm hard drives, some of which
are in fact 9.55mm) ... the only other complication you will run into with
drives larger than 8.4GB is that the Libretto's BIOS only sees 8.4GB so
you'll need a BIOS drive overlay so that the Libretto can see the rest of
the drive ... look in the archives for David's link to EZ-Drive (in case
you've not already got it) as well as for numerous discussions on the 
topic!

Hope this helps!

- Raymond

Two points: don't forget the hibernation space - again, lots of details in 
the archives - and, has anyone discussed whether the ez-drive bios extenders 
work properly with the brain-damaged 70 bios that restricts visible drive 
size to 1.6GB?

If you have bios version 6.2 you'll be able to stuff the 6G drive straight 
in, if not you'll have to downgrade your bios *to* 6.2.

[LIB] New improved error message (linux)

2002-05-24 Thread neil barnes

Date: Fri, 24 May 2002 08:04:04 +
From: neil barnes [EMAIL PROTECTED]
Subject: New improved error message (linux)

Being of an inquiring mind, I decided to try and find a way to build gentoo 
linux on the lib 70 (It starts with a minimum kernel and then builds itself, 
collecting new source as it goes - ah the joys of a permanent network 
attachment :)

Unfortunately I left the thing running overnight with inadequate ventilation 
and it did a thermal shutdown - which is fine. On startup, I saw that the 
last error message was 'Hardware address mishap' !!!

Turns out to be something to do with the network card - pinging from another 
terminal caused the same error until I removed and replaced the PCMCIA 
network card - and thereafter everything was fine.

Curious.

Subject: Re: [LIB] Poll on Linux compatible modems and NICs


Hmmm... are there cards on the list of cards supported by Linux that still
need to have drivers set up?  I was lucky that three of 6 cards I tested 
out
worked immediately without having to set any drivers at all.  Unfortunately
2 of the ones that failed to be recognized were the ones from my two CD-ROM
drives.

Every card I have worked first time in linux (with one of them taking half a 
day to get running in windows!) - you have my list. The Tosh CDROM works 
fine.


I'm wondering if it possible to network the L50 running Linux to the L70
running Windows, and be able to access a CD-ROM drive there.  Is that
something that is possible?

Yes - you'll need to set the CDROM on the 70 as a shared drive, and set up 
all the samba stuff on the 50. It works, but it might take some time :) The 
samba howto book (it's all over the web) is well worth reading before you 
start. I think it's by O'Reilly.

(before you ask, no I haven't. I have a hard enough time making 98 work with 
2k, though 2k works with 98 easily enough. Odd. Though the latest linuxes 
are starting to appear with a network neighbourhood app built in - M8.2 I 
think does)

Raymond a écrit :

  I do know that between the L100/110 era and more recent laptops, Toshiba
  changed a pile of stuff for power management. For instance, newer 
laptops
  hibernate to a file on the file system called toshiber.sys (I think its
  .sys anyway) and you can delete that file whenever you like, when it
  hibernates it'll recreate it on the file system where there is room 
without
  blowing away stuff.
 

Not found this on L110
And this suppose a greater interaction between the BIOS and one dedicated 
OS
Which OS ?

I think this applies to later machines than the 110 - dunno about other 
librettos but I'm told that portege and tecras use it. They have some 
perverse idea that users will be using micros~1 on them.

I wonder if that means that the bios knows about vfat and ntfs filesystems, 
or if it just throws an interrupt at the OS - in which case linux should be 
able to catch it, if someone smarter than me writes a driver...

I'm probably going to end up with a dual boot machine anyway, when/if the 
libretto gets upgraded to something with a larger screen.

Subject: [lib] 70 into 50 almost goes...

I bought a bargain 70CT with a knackered screen (ta Trevor) with the
intention of fitting the mobo in my 50's case and getting the benefits of a
charger that charges whilst the machine is on, plus the speed increase.

I've just tried everything, and it works - ish.

When I plug the 50's screen into the 70, text mode is fine but when 640x480
vga kicks in then there's ghosting on the screen and the colours aren't all
displaying properly.  It's as if it's running in 12 bit mode or 
something...

I've checked the BIOS and tried the different colour depth settings to no
avail.  Being paranoid, I thought oh bum, I've knackered the screen and
no, that works fine on the 50 mobo.

I'm using the 70s motherboard and keyboard in a 50 case with a 50 screen 
and
all the leads from the 50 screen.

Am I missing something blindingly obvious?

The method works fine - that's how I got a 70 :)

I'd be suspicious of the screen connector - crud in the socket perhaps?

Make sure that you don't force the mobo into the 50 case - you might need to 
relieve the case around the interface connector (or are you using the 70 
case?

Very good, Matthew, the player will end up listening to itself so you'll
end up with MP3s controlling the MP3 player ... I can think of many songs
that'll have one or more of those keywords in them.

Hmm... that hadn't occurred to me.  But I was always under the impression
that each person had to train voice recognition software to recognize
his/her particular voice.  I would think that it would be extremely
difficult for software to pick out particular words in the sound of music
being played.

The problem is more likely to be that it can't separate you out from the 
music it's playing. Hence clever filters that listen to the music and to you 
and make sure there's as little of the music on your signal as possible. 
Tricky, but doable, but computationally expensive unless you happen to have 
a handy DSP.


That said, I'm amazed what voice recognition is cabable of on the phone
these days.

Check out http://digitalacoustics.com/ sfx: blowing own trumpet I wrote 
the code that cleans up the signal before it gets to the voice recognition 
section.

Of course, you could use one lib to do the playback, and one lib to do the
voice recognition...

This might be the biggest stumbling block.  If voice recognition software
requires as much of the system resources as the MP3 player, the L70 
wouldn't
cut it, would it?  How about the L110?

Dunno, never tried it. grin Find the software, make it work, use P5Mon or 
similar to see how much processor it's using. Or just try it. There's a dos 
version of mgp123 which doesn't use any great amount of processor power, but 
is a little restricted in its capabilities (it knowa bout start and stop!)

I've been wondering if it'd be possible to set up voice recognition to
control MP3 playback in the car.  I'd love to be able to say UP for louder
volume, DOWN for lower volume, NEXT for the next track, BACK for the
previous track, STOP, START, CUE FORWARD, CUE BACKWARD etc.  Who was it 
that
suggested this a few months back for GPS software, and got me thinking??

W, the voice recognition should be fairly easy (though it may want 
more processor time than the mp3 player is willing to give up...) but the 
adaptive filtering to get rid of all the other noise (like the mp3 audio 
output!) might be a bit...er...interesting.

Of course, you could use one lib to do the playback, and one lib to do the 
voice recognition...

I'm asking if there's a way to deliberately prevent Win'95/98 seeing the
partitions, but which would not prevent Win'2K seeing the whole drive (I'm
thinking it ought to be automatic, whichever OS you choose to boot, gets to
see what is appropriate).

I'm guessing here - but as you have to partition the disc anyway, to allow 
space for the hibernation, why not format the first 8G as fat32 and the 
second 12G as HPFS (or whatever the NT file format is)?

If you have a boot loader, W98 will never see the later partitions, while 
W2k will see both.

I think!

You are right, I don't remember it giving  big gains in regular work, back

are HUGE. I am talking at least 5 fold. Without smartdrive you will start
setup one day and finish next! If you set up other machines, you likely
booted with nt/2000 CD. In this case smartdrive is loaded automatically.

Hmmm...I loaded W2k from an existing dos partition on the 70 and it ran in a 
couple of hours. Gave up cos I couldn't find a screen driver that worked :)

Has anyone ever found a utility than lets the libretto suspend then
when the battery level gets low enough allows it to hibernate? Kind
of using the best of both worlds?

This happens by default - the first thing the lib (50/70 - can't speak for 
the others) does is copy the memory to disc, but then it keeps powered if 
you have it set to suspend. When you switch it on, it restores from memory 
if the power is still there, or from the disc if the memory is cleared by a 
power down.

Whilst on the subject of rodents, anyone out there know where you can buy

a rodent half the size of a traditional Logitech-sized mouse for my
Libretto...

Maplins (UK) do - or did, they're showing out of stock at present - tiny 
mice: UY37S and UY39N (in a choice of transparent green or purple, very 
tasteful!) Or they have a 'finger mouse' TH90X which looks like a tiny 
trackball.

Thanks John. I'll have to remove my lid and put it on that one's bottom
half.  Haven't yet attempted to get the screw covers off the lid to remove
it.  Can this be done without marking things up, and making it obvious
someone without a lot of skill was in there?

I was going to switch LCDs between my L50 and L70 because of a spent pixel
on the L70.  But I've found it's not that big a deal, and have come to live
it.  I remember Neil saying to use a pointed scalpel or Exacto blade to pry
it up.  Seems one couldn't help but scratch it a bit.


If you want to replace the entire screen unit, you only need a screwdriver 
to split the clamshell halves. If you want to replace the LCD in the screen 
unit, or swap bits of the screen between two units, you have to very 
carefully lift the two 1 1/4 by 1/4 inch covers. A scalpel lets you split 
the glue below it.

The instructions suggest that new ones are available for repair and should 
be changed by default, but I've found the old ones stick quite nicely.

Is the 50 LCD compatiable with the 70CT?

Yes. between the 50 and the 70 *everything* is swappable except the mobo 
(see caveats) and keyboard.

Caveats:

o if you put a 70 mobo in a 50 case, you need to do a little filing on the 
case - the connector for the port replicators is slightly different.

o if you put disks wider than 8.5mm in a 50 case, you need to remove the 
transparent and white spacers from the case back.

o The keyboard connectors are different, so you can't swap them.

o There are instances where software which works on the 50 won't work on the 
70. We haven't been able to prove it, but it may be that the MMS intructions 
on the 70 pentium are the cause.

Hi,

Silly lazy question but does the 50 have type a II slot (for the disk) 
please?

Good question - I wonder whether they mean height? Lots of disc-on-a-cards 
used to need two slots to fit, even though they only used one.


Also the MCS (EPR) would give me USB yes?

No. It gives you a double-height single slot though.

Deleting cookies or temp files will not give you Blue screen. The worst
effect of loosing cookies will be that web sites remembering you login and
preferences will forget them until you login manually next time. I had the
Blue screen because Windows page file was damaged by hibernation. Deleting
cookies will not save any significant amount of space anyway.


My point is not that the cookies and temp files are required, but that 
you'll get a blue screen if you destroy the files system on which they are 
stored. If the FAT points to something that isn't there, it will read 
garbage back to the program - if it can parse it at all, it won't be happy 
with what it parses. If it can't it will probably crash - people don't seem 
to test things by throwing random numbers at them anymore :) If the fat is 
damaged, then it will in all likelyhood bluescreen when the file access 
occurs as the pointers will be all over the place.

If you have a cheap source for LCD panels there are lots of people who'd

Is the FAT info always at the beginning of the partition?

(ie, if the emergency harware-hibernate space fell in the *middle* of a
cookies-history-temporary Internet files partition...)

?

I believe so - still gonna complain if you trash a file though...

  The major difference is the internal design. 50 and 70 are basically 486
  architecture while 100 are Pentium class architecture. This can be show 
in


Why would you say that? The specs clearly show the 50 to have a Pentium-75
and the 70 is, guessing here, a P-120???

The L30 and L-20 were 486-class

They have pentium processors but the internal connections look back rather 
than forwards - for example the video chip is connected on a vesa local bus, 
rather than a PCI bus.

If the fat is damaged, then it will in all likelyhood bluescreen when the
file access occurs as the pointers will be all over the place.

And what did you have in mind to do that would cause this to happen?

Oh, just chewin' the fat...

I'm not doing anything, but it's been proposed to put a temp filesystem into 
the hibernation area.

Re: [LIB] Memory expansion for 70CT

Subject: Memory expansion for 70CT



Hello there,

I'm trying to confirm that a memory expansion card (16Mb) out of a libretto 
50 will also work in the faster libretto 70.  Is this true?

The 50 has a cpu speed of 75mHz but the 70 has a cpu speed of 120Mhz  but 
I'm not sure what speed the memory interface runs at.

Were all the memory expansions (both tosh and other suppliers) rated for 
both the 70 and the 50 models.


One size fits all - even when it's clocked. My 70 runs at 150MHz.
