|Individual Computers: New xsurfadsl.device with appp update|
A new version of the xsurfadsl.device, the PPPoE driver for our networking card X-Surf, can be found in the support-area of our website. For the first time, the archive also contains an updated version of the appp.device that has been licensed from Haage & Partner (see article from November, 12th).
The source code of version 2.7 that we got from Haage & Partner was different from the binary that is being sold with the Genesis package in OS3.9 (V2.3). Questions about the changes between the two versions could not be answered until now. The new version provided by us (V3.1) has been updated mainly on internal structures: The device-base code (the interface to the OS) is completely re-written, so opening up to eight units, and freeing all resources after closing them (especially memory) is ensured. Therefore, we also recommend installing the new appp.device, even if you do not own an X-Surf Ethernet card.
At this point, we want to draw your attention to the ISAcatweasel.device, which allows using the PC-Catweasel under Amithlon. Since we have not been able to run Amithlon on any of our computers, we depend you your help in testing. The new archive is now packed with LHA, so difficulties with unpacking the ARJ archive are eliminated. Adapted Catweasel mountlists should make the installation a lot easier. (ps)
