Good idea and good habit. Thank you!

Nice to know Sabbate, I will download it for Icaros Desktop.

Out of curiosity, why were you amazed ?


Because VESA mode relies (relied?) on information got from BIOS VBE extension, which basically means if your card didn't expressely tell AROS that yes, that mode was available, AROS wouldn't have used it. On AROS ABIv0 32 bit I usually got modes like 640x480, 800x600, 1024x768 and 1280x1024, in various palette depths. But nothing widescreen, for instance. On VMware and VBox I obviously force the VM to 'pass' those modes to AROS with ease.

...or maybe I should just place commas where I should, in order to make my statements more clear. I didn't intend to offend you, just wanted to explain how the test was actually conducted and why I've written "12 core" in the first instance.

But now it's time for some very good news either! I tried AROS x64 also on my laptop. A Core i5-based HP ProBook. I have to manually specify vesa=1920x1080x32 in GRUB line, because the automatic resolution option does not work, but once I do that... AROS boots correctly! And I am amazed by the fact I can use the full-HD resolution with no issue. The SMP test sometime crashes, but I could run it some times without any issue.

I noticed, though, that on this system I can't see the graphics of core usage in sysmon (the red line does not get drawn). HDToolbox correctly detects the AHCI SATA hard disk connected to the system and I can access a FAT32-formatted recovery partition. I used it to save this screenshot!

Since I burned a CD-RW, I tested it also on other computers as well. My main old Core i7 920 based desktop PC can't boot it though, no matter the options I choose in GRUB. It always stop at this point (see photo).

Motherboard is a X99 based ASUS Crosshair IV or something (I don't remember the name exactly), with 9 GB of DDR3 RAM in triple channel mode.

@trekiej

Ryzen virtual machine was running under VMware Player (latest release, I guess 12.5). The host machine is based on a B350 Fatal1ty motherboard from ASRock, with a couple of 8 GB DDR4-3200 RAM modules and a quite old SATA hard drive.

@Kalamatee, Trekiej and others

I tried running AROS nightly build on this motherboard, and it almost boots. With 'almost boots' I mean it gets into Intuition, but instead of loading Wanderer it shows a series of AFFS filesystem errors (see photo). There are NO AROS partitions on the hard drive. This motherboard does not have IDE connectors, nor SATA drives can be set to IDE legacy mode in BIOS. They can work only in AHCI and RAID modes.

Good news is that it also detects 1920x1080 monitor correctly and I don't need to specify it: the default grub option opens the graphic screen in the correct resolution. Sorry I can't get further using ANY option. Setting nodma does not help either.

Granted, the YouTube clip is titled that way, so I assume 12 "cores" was a typo.
Far from important, but the OCD in me couldn't refrain. :)

On a more serious note though, very cool.
I was wondering how AROS multicore would deal with multithreaded CPUs. Nice to see it works as "normal". :)


Well, I guess the OCD in you should pay more attention to words and descriptions. I wrote "ryzen based virtual machine", which means I have defined a VM with a 12-core processor and ran AROS onto it. Each of these 12 virtual cores would run on a logical host processor core, so basically 6 physical and 6 "multithreaded".

There is still an abstraction layer between AROS and the host processor, I had no time to burn a CD-RW and connect a SATA optical drive, try AROS onto it and deal with probable AHCI issues at boot. But the video depicts a realistic figure of how AROS would run on the metal as well (it should be just a little faster, though, both for the virtualization layer and the video capturing program stealing processor, memory and disk time).
