Very nice. But trying to load a file made the tool box disappear, showing a message about downgrading OWB to v 1.23. Not too nice...

rm -rf from Linux does not work for you?

FastConfig should be what you're looking for.

BTW: best method to transfer files is using FTP. If you're using Icaros as I think, just enable it in Icaros preferences and use it as described in the manual.

Hi IIRC SMBv1 has been completely deprecated on Windows after update MS17-010, since it's vulnerable to wannacry and petya ransomwares. These days, enabling/using SMBv1 on Windows is a bad idea so yes, let's hope someone will update AROS SMB implementation.

We should make it work on x64 first, and then think to port it to other architectures.

I don't understand where the problem is, exactly. We have already 4 AROS flavours for PC: i386 ABIv0, i386 ABIv1, x64 and x64-SMP, all of them targeting somehow the same processors, all of them being (partially or totally) incompatible to the others and (almost) all of them having someone who takes care of them. Adding a 68K-SMT specific flavour for Vampire users derived from M68K shouldn't be a issue at all, providing that SOMEONE ELSE will take care of it, so Toni, me and anyone else who don't need Vampire specific stuff, can continue using/following the classic M68K version. That's how open source works, by the way.

I guess someone from the Vampire team can make his own flavour of AROS M68K, introducing everything he needs for his own architecture, and caring about backwards compatibility with older software, and that's all. Then builds can be added to the AROS page. Am I wrong?

@ntromans

AROS is an operating system, it's software, it's the glue which can attach together very different pieces of the Amiga universe. The best thing with open source is that you can tailor the code to your specific needs, which may be completely different from user to user. Just think about the Linux kernels running on your home router and on you Android phone. I can use AROS 68K to provide an Amiga compatibility layer for Icaros Desktop, Olaf can use it to create an Amikit-like Amiga environment, Vampire team can use it to make the most of their hardware, and anyone else can use and adapt it to work to any other 68K based device if they want. So no, the 'retro' tag can be applied to the whole Amiga thing but not strictly to AROS, which can be considered 'retro' just for old habits it inherits from AmigaOS API. On its own, it can be expanded to support modern features and modern applications, but I will still consider - for instance - Icaros Desktop being 'modern retro' until this modernization will be done.
