@ntromans

For Ping the version is still 3.10, however do not use or mix AROS One versions prior to version 2.4, otherwise you will have conflicts and Guru.

Ping works on AROS One v2.5, the mounting that doesn't, have you tried mounting a share with your script on AROS Native on a PC?

The method I mentioned is very simple and works very well, tested on multiple PCs.

Ah, it's the mount - thtat's the one bit I didn't try as I don't have a samba share to mount to. Yes, I'm being stupid - if it was in devs:dosdrivers it would already be mounted and hence the error. I've also missed oyut the 'from' keyword - very stupid of me! I'll edit that immediately...

Cheers,

If you have a Windows PC and use AROS One you don't need anything, you just need to create the DOSDrivers, a share or a network drive on a PC, quick and easy if you know Windows.

Summing up, for SMB2 mounting, the final solution was found for the automatic mounting of the Network Shared Folder or Unity.

In practice there were two drawbacks, the first one was if SMB2 and its Icon were copied to WBStartup or via User-startup execution, in which case the SMB2 DOSDrivers were mounted too early before the system was connected, consequently the mount failed and the DOSDrivers had to be renamed to be mounted.

The other drawback was if SMB2 and its Icon were copied to Devs/DOSDrivers, in this case the Mounting was done automatically without errors, but the connection was not Active, no Icon on the Wanderer, to activate the connection and have the icon appear on the Wanderer you had to first type SMB2: somewhere (Shell or Dopus4).

The first solution I found was to copy SMB2 and its Icon to Storage/DOSDriver and then click on the SMB2 Icon on the Wanderer or AmiStart.

The solution found now allows automatic mounting, which was successfully tested on native AROS installed on a PC and on WMvare.
In practice, SMB2 and its Icon must be copied to Devs/DOSDrivers, while a small script must be created and copied to WBStartup, where the SMB2 command must be inside it, preceded by a Wait with a minimum time value in order to delay the assembly and give the system time to connect to the network.

Info and scripts will be available in the next AROS One, the described procedure can only be done after the user has created his personal SMB2 that includes his Network data.

After completion of the ISO and USB Image Tests, the new AROS One 2.5 will be available for download later this week.

For "Burning" the USB Image you will still have to use Rufus v3.2, unfortunately the stable version of Rufus 4.5 released a few days ago can correctly create the USB Image, but once burned and started AROS after the Grub will not find the SFS Partition.

The same USB Image created Rufus 4.5 can be "Burned" with Rufus v3.2 without any errors, the created Live Pendrive will boot AROS One safely.

From the screenshot you can see the new Theme and Amifox logged into Facebook, at the same time Mplayer plays a streaming MP3 and OWB opens the Aros archive site

Would it be possible to release it a virtual disk format like VHD, so that those who do not have hardware to run it natively can use it as is? Or perhaps give a pre-formated VHD/VMDK/VDI partitioned AROS SFS HD which one could then easily install the ISO over.

pixie, virtual disk format like VHD of AROS One has always been available for Download starting from AROS One v1.5

From the next hours also virtual disk format like VHD of AROS One 2.5 will be available !

I have used your new Version and it do not running very smoothly as on Version 2.4. On some devices it started crashing when moving Scalos while playing video, on some it just start stucking. Also the frame-rate is not as fast as menus and windows drawing fast enough to not getting mind of stucking somewhere - on every tested device. I am not sure, but it seems as graphic cache not used well by Scalos.

Neverless it's still nice update for Aros One!

Scalos? on AROS One x86 there is no Scalos, furthermore Scalos on AROS x86 is unstable!

Seems really no Scalos. Sry for missunderstanding.

But still not running very smoothly. In Attachment is a picture, which showing the frame-rate problems on menus. With Windows it is pretty similar to menus.

I don't have these problems on both Virtual Machine and Native PC!

Where did you install AROS One?

Be careful as soon as the installation is finished, first boot the system happens to be slow, I don't know the reasons, then in subsequent starts everything is faster!

Virtual Box 7.08 was used with same problems. but without those high frame-rate problems because of more modern computer running Virtual Box (related to that idea of not well used cache). Also my Fujitsu Futro S920 ran into such problems and also crashed when moving Wanderer. My Tohsiba Satellite L300D got the same problem but never crashed - more like processes became halted while moving.

The frame-rate problem was also after third and fourth boot still there.

VirtualBox doesn't work well, I use version 6.1, no problem with slowness in the Menu, videos on the other hand are too fast (you can't reduce the speed).

Forget VirtualBox, use VMware Player, better choice in every sense!

Rufus developer Pete has informed me that there is a way to 'Burn' or rather 'Flash' the VHD image even with the new Rufus 4.5, basically just renaming the extension from 'VHD' to 'IMG'.

The incompatibility of "VHD image" burning with Rufus 4.5 was due to the Windows system, Pete said that with the next version he will find a solution to correct this problem.

You can read the details of the problem here:

Nice, you can drag a folder or file and "only" the .info File will be deleted, while the File and Folder will show the Def_Icons icon assigned by the System.

This application of yours is very useful when you want to delete old and large icons and their settings, e.g. paths or tools other than those used by AROS One.

Create an Icon and place "DeleteIcon" in the Utilities folder!

To complete it in the next version if possible you will be able to add a Multiple Deletion, so you can delete all .info Files to a group of Files or Folders at the same time

Hi Amigasystem,
Yes, multilple deletion should be possible. Hopefully I'll have that ready for early next week.

Cheers,
Nigel.
