These machines are -really- picky about the CDROM used to install. I used a yamaha drive that as I recall would only work reliably as device #2.

Sun / HPPA Hardware / HP 9000/712 100 install help?
Last post by tmkdev - Today at 04:32:57 pm
Trying to install Nextstep 3.3 onto an HP 712/100 Gecko. I can boot the install CD, it gives me a few options and gets to the install or advanced options selection and that's when the keyboard stops working.. Can't enter anything - even though it just worked for keyboard selection and the other couple of prompts.

Help? Anybody still out there?

Thanks. Curious of your opinion of the never officially released UI from NeXTSTEP 4.0? I liked some parts, others were undercooked.

Thank you for doing this. It looks really cool.

The trick with leasing the laptop without the mail battery to force a charge on the PRAM battery sadly didn't work.

I'll have to look for either a spare part (laptop og single component) og replace the cells.

I'll let you know how it turns out 😃

Yeah, good point.

Quote from: zombie on June 19, 2019, 04:45:55 amI'm just curious. Why are you doing this instead of working with GNUSTEP? Is there some difference or reason for rolling your own variant?
Because GNUstep is a set of libraries not desktop environment. And NEXTSPACE was implemented on top of GNUstep.

P.S.: BTW, I'm a contributor/developer of GNUstep since 2001.

I got my rollers in from Paolo today. I am beyond impressed! I 100% would believe these are factory parts. The rubber has a great feel and the texture looks great.
