Hi all,

My question is very simple...

Who have good method for test and dianostic NeXTDimension board ?

I have NeXTDimension (PAL version) but it's not to detect by NeXTStep (3.1 and 3.2). Sad

I use http://www.channelu.com/NeXT/Black/NextDimension.tar.gz but I have and another bad message Sad

<< i860 init failed. Did not see the flag indicating that the i860 EEPROM code finished. CSR = 0x4002. >>

Look screen copy :


And specialy :


After I read the boot log message here :
Code:
cat /usr/adm/messages


And I read first kill bad message Evil or Very Mad

Code:
Apr 19 20:31:23 ispw mach: NeXTdimension Board in Slot 2 failed to reset.

Hmmm, there were some diagnotics up on the channelu site. Was that what you ran? Other than that, I know of nothing.

You might pull the dimension board and look over it carefully. Reseat the eprom (if it's socketed - I don't remember).

The eproms are getting into the failure region now (begins at ~10-15 years). We really need to get some prom dumps saved on the various sites.

Yes I read the message :
Code:
"i860 init failed. Did not see the flag indicating that the i860 EEPROM code finished. CSR = 0x4002."


But where find the NeXTDiment EEPROM dump file ???

Who have this file ?

On my NeXTDiment the EEPROM is welded.

But in the NeXTDimension tools, I found software for change (upload/flash) the contents of NeXTDimension eeprom... Is a way Wink But I need the bin file Sad
