Re: SDL 2.0 for AROS
Thanks for the link. Imo that changes things. Instead of using configure, it might be better to use the Amiga makefile. The problem of course is that you would have to deal with the endian issues. Not an easy task. Good luck!!!

Re: SDL 2.0 for AROS
[quote name=cavemann post=2101]@cavemann - Deadwood has released 6.5.0. It will probably be on the next version of Aros-One. I would upgrade because of some fixes. Also try spoofing linux and see what happens.[/quote] That's great! I must have missed that thread on AROS-Exec. I am patiently waiting for AROS One 1.8 until then, I'll keep toyin around it but I am not sure what you mean by spoofing linux. I mean, I know what spoofing means but how to trick AROS into thinking it is linux, I am not sure how to do that. The files I am using as source are located here: [b][url]https://github.com/AmigaPorts/SDL-2.0[/url][/b]

Re: SDL 2.0 for AROS
Hi All, We now have GCC 6.3.0 native in AROS and I am giving this a shot to compile SDL 2.0. Received a "[i]Please insert volume "empty"" [/i] but clicking on cancel, seemed to have continued until the error in the attached image.

Re: FleaOhm and AROS 68K
I had forgotten about this interesting little thing., the Flea Ohm FPGA card. It was an IndieGoGo campaign a few years ago by Valentin Angelovski ([url]https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/fleafpga-ohm-fpga-experimenter-board#/[/url]). Unfortunately, he has not made any more after that batch and it has faded into the abyss as not many users are posting about it. The developer of the board himself has stopped most of his projects. This was a very good board for $40. It runs the Minimig core and a few others. Who knows what else is capable of, if we had more flying around. There is also a forum thread at English Amiga Board: [url]http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?p=1550214#post1550214[/url] I may try AROS 68K on it and see where the train stops :)

Re: no sound and icaros freezing
After the latest deadwood updates, with AROS Distributions the audio on VirualBox works fine! @amigamia If you are interested now for AROS One x86 and AROS One 68k I created a dedicated site: [url=https://sites.google.com/view/arosone][b]AROS One Home Page[/b][/url] Greetings to all the forum

Re: About the distros
Great points there Cavemann. I will re-word the list of distros in the introduction, even though no one really comes here anymore.

Re: About the distros
I disagree about the Broadway distro (mentioned on the home page). It's not really maintained, and that's the problem. It has very old system files, which is not helpful for newbies. I would not recommend Broadway to anyone, unless they update the system files. AspireOS could use an update too. Deadwood has recently back ported newer system files. But AspireOS is not nearly as far behind as Broadway. And although AspireOS was originally for the Aspire notebook, it will also work with similar notebooks. So you might give it a try, before passing on it. There is also a very nice distro called AROS One. With a version for x86 and a version for 68k. Both versions are very artistic and look great in my opinion. Of course, there is only one distro that comes with tons of AROS-x86 software, and that's Icaros. Some people have a hard time getting Icaros to run properly, but there is a manual that should explain how to do things. AROS Vision comes with lots of 68k apps. I don't use 68k much, so I shouldn't comment. But 68k users should definitely try it out. Good Luck, which ever you may choose. :)

Re: Refreshed ABIv0 AROS
Hi All, As you may know, the current ABIv0 system is based on codebase from end of 2016. Overlast 4 years there have been a number of improvements made in AROS mainline which has never been made available to users. I started working on updating the ABIv0 code base, but for this to succeed I will need your help with testing. Below you will find two ISOs: Testing and Reference. Download the Testing ISO and try it on your system. Look for any regressions (booting, native graphics, usb support, audio support, network support, etc). In case you find something that you think is broken, please download the Reference ISO and test there as well. If something works on Reference ISO but does not work on Testing ISO, please post in this thread with description of problem and your hardware. Reference : https://axrt.org/download/aros/v0/AROS-20161228-1-pc-i386-boot-iso.zip Testing: https://axrt.org/download/aros/v0/AROS-20170402-3-pc-i386-boot-iso.zip Reference: N/A Testing: https://axrt.org/download/aros/v0/AROS-20170402-3-linux-i386-system.tar.bz2 Reference: N/A Testing: https://axrt.org/download/aros/v0/AROS-20170402-3-mingw32-i386-system.tar.bz2 Bugtracker: https://github.com/deadw00d/AROS/issues?q=is%3Aopen+is%3Aissue+project%3Adeadw00d%2FAROS%2F3 Note on schedules: If you look into the naming of .zip file you will see two components, for example [b]20170402-1[/b] [b]20170402[/b] describes the master code base date on which the specific ABIv0 build is based on. I expect to upgrade the code base every 1-2 months [b]1[/b] describes the revision of ABIv0 build on the same master code base. This mostly changes when bug fixes are introduced. I expect to have new revision every 1-2 weeks. [code] AROS ABIv0 20170402 changes: Functionalities: Align naming of graphic drivers and make them visible in SysExplorer (Kalamatee) Query graphics driver for 3D subdriver (Kalamatee) C library improvements (Mazze, Kalamatee) Kernel ACPI support (Kalamatee) SysMon listing tasks better (Kalamatee) Kernel IO-APIC support (Kalamatee, Schulz) Kernel interrupt support (Kalamatee, Schulz) Kernel SMP support (Kalamatee, Schulz) Kernel shutdown/reboot support (Kalamatee) Kernel spinlock support (Kalamatee, Schulz) Public locking mechanism support (Kalamatee, Schulz) Kernel CPU cores control (Kalamatee, Schulz) processor.resource improvements (Kalamatee, Schulz) SMP-enabled Message Port handling (Kalamatee, Schulz) Protect access to Exec resources (Kalamatee) Better measurement of CPU usage (Schulz) SysMon listing CPU usage better (Kalamatee) Graph.mcc (Kalamatee) picture.datatype DTM_Write support (Mazze) vusbhci.device (DizzyOfCRN) Kernel MSI interrupt support (Kalamatee) List.mui improvements (Kalamatee) ACPI button driver (Kalamatee) PCI driver IRQ routing table (Kalamatee, Schulz, Neil) 64-bit support: misc fixes (Kalamatee, Schulz) ahi.device, ac97.audio, hdudio.audio 64-bit support (Kalamatee) pciusb.device 64-bit support (Kalamatee) ata.device 64-bit support (Schulz) Updates: Flexcat 2.18 (Mazze) libz 1.2.11 (Mazze) libjpeg 9b (Mazze) libpng 1.6.28 (Mazze) AROS build system (Kalamatee) Icons (Paolone) GCC-6.3.0 (patch file) (Kalamatee) Fixes: Corrected datatype descriptors (Neil, Mazze) VGA driver (Kalamatee, Neil) Documentation (Neil, Kalamatee) X11 driver (deadwood) MUI (o1i, Kalamatee) Shell commands (Neil, Kalamatee, Mazze, Schulz) dos.library (Kalamatee) C:Decoration (Kalamatee) Kernel (Kalamatee) Catalogs (polluks, mmartinka, Kalamatee) Mesa (Kalamatee, Neil) emul-handler (Neil) console.device (Schulz) Intuition (Schulz, Neil) Preferences (Neil, balaton) kms.library (Kalamatee) pciusb.device (Schulz) C library (deadwood) Kernel ACPI support (Neil) Kernel interrupt support (Neil) PCI driver (Neil) Kernel IO-APIC support (Neil) atheros5000.device (Neil) Kernel shutdown/reboot support (Neil) Windows-hosted booting (deadwood) [/code]

Actually I'm planning to update GCC to 6.5.0 as part of ABIv0 refresh. Hopefully this will give enough C++ support.

Re: can I execute old classic A500 programs?
[quote name=spictera post=2086]@spictera - hi I just loved the old a500 hw with its sprites, smoth graphics, music.. it was so fast, and great workstation can I play old classic pinball dreams/fantasy etc on aros distributions? any idea or feedback how to do this regards Tomas[/quote] Hi Tomas, Your options are various to enjoy A500 games again. If you have a Windows operating system, your best option is to use WinUAE but you need to supply your own kickstart ROM images. Alternatively you can also buy Amiga Forever 8, which makes it much easier to setup if you are a first timer. If you are a linux/mac user then you can use FS-UAE which shares some of the code base from WinUAE but you still need to supply your own KickStart images (You can buy them from Cloanto on any android phones and transfer them on your PC). This is just the tip of the iceberg. There is A LOT of information online but start with the tools I mentioned above and see how it goes. You can also use Amiga Emulator within AROS and the best option there is to use Janus-UAE from ICAROS Desktop. Let us know if you have any additional questions.

Re: no sound and icaros freezing
Hi Tomas, Welcome to Aros World! While Icaros boots just fine in VirtualBox, the hardware support for it is not the best. I have tried it many times as well in VBox and experienced the same issues. If you have a machine that supports it, I'd recommend VMware Player or VMware Workstation. Icaros has a better drivers support for VMware hardware virtualization. Alternatively, you can use QEMU-KVM if VMware is not an option due to unsupported CPU. I am currently using it under Linux Mint with AQemu GUI and it is quite stable. Sound and Network work great, the only component I haven't managed to escape the VESA mode is the video drivers. I'll post some pictures soon to show...

Re: no sound and icaros freezing
hi I have just installed latest stable version of Icaros as I am a big fan of Amiga. I installed this on a virtualbox VM guest OS as unknown OS type, with 32GB disk, and 2GB memory. I selected AC97 as soundcard this to see how it Icaros works first issue.. no sound second issue starting graphics playing video makes the aros icaros os to freeze, and does not respond to any activities I really love this os, and want this to work any hint of what can cause this issue? regards Tomas
