for this test I used an already joined/interleaved boot.rom (16Kb)

I suppose this should not be too complex to fix or at least document. If romless you must have a bootable floppy inserted before pressing power on (otherwise there is no 68000 code to run at all)

[edit] something seems to be missing (even if a floppy image is inserted). we may consider romless boot to floppy non functionnal now (fixable but needs work).

Thanks, Gilles! I was beginning to suspect romless, too, but my attempts to use a ROM (on Mac, anyway) were greeted with the same IPC error.

EDIT: Apparently, this is a two-step process. If the ROM is split into hi and lo, and you select bootrom.hi in the Preferences menu and attempt to boot, ROMless mode will still be used *until* LisaEm has joined the hi/lo ROM files into a single boot.ROM. I seem to recall this happening automatically upon closing Prefs, but it's inconsistent now. You can attempt to boot and get presented with the "ROMless Boot" window, then hit cancel. The ROM files will be joined, then subsequent boot successful

Compiled yesterday under ubuntu 22.04 (from github main branch)

compile is ok (both wx-widget and lisaem)
romless does not seem to work but runs fine with a real rom H image => this is a workaround to the "ipc null" error message
macworks 3.0 runs fine and installs on profile (boot floppy still needed for next start)
LOS 2.0 starts to install but fails on a profile/widget disk error (cannot write).

New X/Profile's are definitely still available for sale and fully supported.  I know there is one in-stock ready to go and more available.
PM me and I will get you in touch with the seller.
Rick

Thank you, sir. PM'd.

Thanks for the nice words about Cameo/Aphid :-)
If there winds up being no way to get an X/ProFile, then another option could be the IDEFile http://john.ccac.rwth-aachen.de:8000/patrick/idefile.htm . It's closer to the correct shape, although you may have to make some mounting hardware, and you do have to assemble it all yourself. It's a highly reliable device that I've been using for nearly ten years now!

Nice to see you here, friend! I did join this forum at your suggestion, so thanks again for directing me. Seems perfect for a geek with a newfound appreciation for the Lisa  ;D

That certainly is a neat project, too. I'm afraid it might be a little beyond my abilities at this time, but I'll keep that in mind as a long-term project.

Any reason why the X/ProFile in particular? I'd probably go with a Cameo Aphid these days: https://github.com/stepleton/cameo/blob/master/aphid/README.md

Thanks for the informative reply. I do have a very nice Cameo/Aphid drive emulator from ArcaneByte. It's a great external drive solution, especially when paired with the 2-port Parallel Card.

I'm interested in the X/ProFile as an internal drive solution, using the Lisa's internal drive power connector, to replace my non-working Widget. It also more closely matches the layout of the Widget, which I find appealing for an internal solution.

It's a little more DIY, but pretty much all the PCB fab houses also do board assembly, and at least on the Lisa you get the very nice Cameo Selector utility: https://lisalist2.com/index.php/topic,143.0.html

I understand that the X/ProFile drive was sold by VintageMicros for a number of years, but they are no longer available for sale:

I'm looking for a couple of these, for my Lisa 2 and Apple /// (the latter requires an X/ProFile voltage regulator, too). If anyone has one (or more) of these and would be willing to part with it, please let me know. Thank you :)
