thanks, for the suggestion. I think the issue maybe with the burning of the fuses

Code: Select all

 eddie  desktop1  ~/work/gigatron-rom  make burn85
# Program Pluggy McPlugface
# Set to 8 MHz
minipro -p attiny85 -w Utils/BabelFish/BabelFish.ATtiny85_fuses.txt -c config
Found TL866II+ 04.2.115 (0x273)
Warning: Firmware is out of date.
  Expected  04.2.116 (0x274)
  Found     04.2.115 (0x273)
Chip ID OK: 0x1E930B
Writing fuses... Could not read config fuses_ext value.
make: *** [Makefile:94: burn85] Error 1
you can see that there's an error saying the config file does not have fuses_ext. I did some google search but can't find anything about it.

According to the following fuse calculator, the default value for the ATtiny85 extended fuse is 0xFF:
http://eleccelerator.com/fusecalc/fusec ... p=attiny85

The only other extended fuse preset from the above calculator is "Self Programming enable", which would be 0xFE.

Maybe try adding the fuses_ext parameter to ATtiny85_fuses.txt and set it to 0x00ff :

Code: Select all

fuses_ext = 0x00ff

Active adapters normally have 2 PS/2 plugs (keyboard/mouse) that connect to a little black box with cables.

The image shown is going the other way (PS/2 to USB). This converter allows a PS/2 keyboard and mouse to a connect to a single USB port. This would be the typical use case where you have an older PS/2 keyboard/mouse and want to connect to a modern USB port.

There is no real market for an active USB to PS/2 converter. There used to be one made by StarTech (model number PS22USB) but this was discontinued and is no longer available (not even used on Ebay). You can still buy new PS/2 keyboards, so that is really the only option unless you have an older USB keyboard and can use the passive converter.

Many thanks.
