Perfect, thanks!

C programming is now vastly less-hellish.

Missing Backslash and Pipe on US Keyboard Mapping

On both my VirtualBox (Icaros 2.2.1) and Acer ZG5 (Icaros 2.2.2) AROS installs I cannot use the pipe/backslash key on the Default US keyboard mapping. The key is located under the backspace key.

Does anyone know hot to fix this?

Does anyone know how to get VGA output working to a monitor?

(well it helps to have the cable pushed in all the way I guess!)

AROS has always gone through dips and spikes of interest, and until such time as it becomes complete/stable/feature rich enough to maintain/sustain interest I personally don’t see it changing.


That certainly would happen faster with more devs =)

Where would you recommend somebody start in trying to understand the AROS code-base on x86?

All points... but how to grow the number of developers?

@marlon I agree, it is tough to start.

Moving to github would be helpful. Making changes visible through the pull-request process would help offer some insight.

The documentation on sourceforge is very readable for the most part. Is the AROS wikibook maintained? There's some gems of information tucked away there but generally it appears to be a mind-dump that I suspect is mostly out of date. Is there anything that should be merged back into the main documentation? Should it be killed to eliminate multiple conflicting sources of information?

Working on an operating system is a difficult problem.

As a suggestion, is anybody willing and able take on a Developer Outreach type role? I see the following needs:
* communicating an up-to-date roadmap, especially areas that need work
* encouraging new developers and ensuring "getting started" documentation is up to date
* following-up on new developers after some short time to see if they're stuck or lost in some way
* ensuring documentation is up to date
* connecting new developers with a willing mentor

What does everyone think?

@xboxown inspired me to pick up a lightly used white ZG5 on ebay (for $36 delivered to my door). This is my first AROS install on real hardware (using ICAROS 2.2.2) and it is pretty cool. There's a few minor issues I'll try to fix and I'll post up some progress and a photo later =)

I plan to use the little beasty for a cache of retro-programming PDFs and a little programming fun during my lunch break. The small form factor is a nice compliment to the MacBook Pro I have to haul around for work.

Thanks to every one who helped make this happen!
