UniPlus doesn't need patching to work with the X/ProFile.

Unless someone knows what to patch in UniPlus... Anyone got a spare 5MB or 10MB ProFile for sale? :D

I do actually want one. The X/Profile is nice but I feel like something is lost going fully solid state.

I am not sure how it applies to UniPlus, but I know that Xenix must be patched to work with the X/Profile:

Note: This is not due to buggy X/Profile emulation, but the Xenix driver is buggy and has issues with the faster speed of the X/Profile.

HTH,

Interesting. So it's not a RAM issue, and it's not a 2/5 issue. I suppose that only leaves a couple culprits left:

- X/Profile emulation could be buggy and not support the UniPlus installer (but how did the vintagemicros guys get it working in the first place?)
- The disk images online are bad

Are you taking the CRT out?

If you can't remove the metal cover over the CRT neck, space to remove the connector is tight. If you partially remove the CRT, it gives a lot more space to disconnect.

To remove it, just gently wiggle it off. It is not difficult to remove.

Here's a video I shot when changing the CRT on my 2/5: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oauo8NQYomo

I have a 2/5 (with a 10m Profile) with an original install of UniPlus. It boots up fine with .5mb, and 2mb of ram. (With 2mb it complains the swap partition is too small)

The bootloader on the disk gives the same "Not the right computer" error if I try to load it on a different machine.

UPDATE, I found the manuals in the previous posts, I will go through them, but is there an quick and dirty example to get me running?

Yes, yes there is! Pascal's the way to go. Documentation is up on BitSavers: http://bitsavers.org/pdf/apple/lisa/workshop_3.0/
Here are some modern notes on writing code on the Lisa. Good luck and looking forward to see what you do. Again, you'll run into linker issues unfortunately on LisaEm, but not on a real Lisa.

I wanted to try and run some of these on LisaEm with Office 3.1, most of the disks are not recognized.  Do they need a special version of Lisa Office or do they need the Macintosh System software?  I would love to be able to create a simple program to open various Lisa Documents in 4 folders (depending on some logic or arbitrary value, but enough to say, a random Lisa Document),
There should be no issue installing Lisa Pascal Workshop, the issue is when you try to link any program that contains an if statement (or case statement), the linker will crash with "Bad Intrin Patch".
Note that LPW does not install on Lisa Office System, you'd create a new LisaEm preference i.e. creating a new virtual Lisa and then installing them like you're installing a new OS.The LPW disks will not work in LOS, though you might be able to share an application you created in LPW with LOS.

Cool beans!  I did created another profile and load the software package.  And.... then I'm like where do I get documentation, example code, etc... I was like cool, but I'm missing something.  This is progress tho.  Any other hints would be great to get me writing my first pieces of Basic, (Pascal or Cobol), I've written in all of them, but that's as old as well, the Apple Lisa!
