OpenElfTags() - free memory

Re: MicroA1 dying :(

Someone from a different forum suggested replacing the battery and that indeed did the trick... now it's working again! Embarassing, but I didn't think of the battery! I still find it strange though that an empty battery causes a loss of the VGA signal. I'd expect U-Boot settings and system clock st...

Re: MicroA1 dying :(

@OldFart: Thanks for the offer! I'll try to get some serial output first but I might come back to you if all attempts fail.

MicroA1 dying :(

Lately, my MicroA1 seems to have contracted some serious issues. I'm not able to boot into OS4 anymore. I'm seeing these issues: 1) When I switch on the machine the HD drive motor often doesn't start 2) Even when it starts, there is still no VGA signal I've tried to remove all peripherals including ...

Re: Is it possible to use libpng et al. in a clib2 project?

That's too bad. If it had been possible I would have been able to reduce executable size by 1 MB like on MorphOS where we have shared libraries like jfif.library, z.library and png.library that are part of the OS.
