Topic: Server migration. (Read 4278 times) previous topic - next topic



I think it will be more sensible to get a new PC, or install linux if possible. Running with unsupported software (win98 or v09) doesn't make things easier. You should be able to run a lean window manager (e.g. xfce) on such an old machine (and I hope it's got more than 64MB of ram).


I have an vista notebook without a hardware rs232; i tried to upload via a profilic 2303 usb-rs232 adapter without luck; so I checked for many hours the forum to find a solution. at my win98 PC the compilation fails with v11 and v14, but this one has a rs232.

the serial communication with the board is proofed with a simple programm made with bascom-avr, in both directions, to a terminalprogramm.

I have found out, that in the v09 an older gcc ist used, with should do the job with win98.

I ask in this topic because there is a big change with the server migration I think: the older versions are no more available.
maybe tomorrow.

thanks for first answer,  andi

I'm sorry that you have to use windows.

If you described you problem in more detail, chances to get help would be much bigger. "It doesn't work" is a bit vague and could be caused by many things.

Still, don't expect people to try and fix code for v09. It is obsolete for a long time, just like win98. It should be retired. Tell us what doesn't work using the latest version in detail, give us error messages.

Edit: and it's also time to split this thread :-)


thumbs up for the new server, forum is blisteringly quick.. :)


Wow  :D

Finaly you don't all kind off timeouts when using the forum or website.



I have had a few timouts tonight but I think that might have been my internet, I have had no problems otherwise...



This is indeed a big improvement over the old system. Thanks to the admins for making the change, and for making it so seamlessly.


andi: I am working in enabling downloads from a different server during the day. This is part of my scheduled migration work ... moving downloads away from the httpd server is my priority #1 to keep the system at full speed

Please be patient some more hours, this will not take long.


hello David,

thank you for the positive answer, I will wait  :D


Andi: it has been done :-)
