I don't know about the 'official' ports. But in general, ports can change a great deal between versions. They can change to engines or libraries that may not be supported by AROS. Even changes like adding threads or wide characters can sometimes be a problem.


Ok, sometimes this can happen. But I don't think this will happen just with the next version of every ported program.

Also sometimes I prefer an older version. There are times when a new developer takes over a project and mucks it up.


Yes. I agree with you.

Finally as you know, AROS has limited manpower and updates to ports may have a lower priority than other projects.


Yes, I know. This thing is happening since long time for the Amiga too. The ports are/were often crippled in some way and often the source is not shared with the original programmer/team. I don't know what is needed to add a porting on a list of supported platforms. Often there is a single port of a program and then no new version will appear. Just think to MAME as an example of this. I'm just curious to know why this happens.

If you have a particular port in mind, mention it. You might inspire someone to try porting it


Too many to list. I'd like to see a virtual machine capable of running other operating systems without speed loss. But it would be great even if a full working version of Bochs will appear one day. An updated version of ScummVM would be nice too... it would bring "new old" games to AROS.

I'm just wondering about one thing... many open source programs are compiled for many operating systems/platforms once they were ported the first time, and then updated when a new version is available. Now both Amiga and AROS have many open source programs available: ScummVM, MAME, Bochs, ecc... so, why these portings are not added to the official portings list and updated to the latest version when available? We always had often one older version ported and then never updated or added to the official portings. Wich step is missing to have a fully official and fully updated porting?

Ok, I did it. I've found some files of 1 kb to delete, so I had at least 3 kb free space shown by DirectoryOpus 4, so now I'm able to delete bigger files. Can this be classified as BUG? Or is this a feature of SFS?

I had trying to install IcAROS 2.2.1 on a old 4 GB spare usb stick for some experiment. Now I understand that 4 GB are not enough. Now I want tailor it to my needs deleting some unused thing and copying things that weren't already copied, but now here is the problem: the free space is 2 kb. Now I can't delete anything on that key because it's... full! What I can do to delete files and save on install times? Do I need to format that stick and start everything from scratch?

Le icone le puoi trovare in Extras:Icons/AROS-Gorilla.zip. Se non sbaglio esiste un programmino che copia al volo tutto il set di icone, ma non l'ho mai usato e non ricordo il nome. I gusti sono gusti, ma personalmente trovo il set "Gorilla" orrendo.

So, what about unplugging the fibre optic or ethenet cable from the router so you're isolated fron the internet, enable SMP1 on Windows, transfer the files and then disable SMP1 before reconnecting to the internet?

Cheers,

I can do this. Do you know an easy way to turn on and off SMBv1? Do I need to edit the registry manually?

I need to understand what I can do on AROS and what I can't do.

Can I unpack IcAROS dvd iso and burn it with Fryingpan without errors?

Can I mount the iso file with DiskImageGUI?

Can DirectoryOpus 4 handle that iso file even if it is shown with a negative and totally wrong filesize?

And what about fixing DirectoryOpus 4 to show the right filesize? Is that too complex to fix or is a reasonable easy task? And a more important question... is there someone that want to do this task? Maybe an alert can be added to DirectoryOpus 4 to show a message like "This file is too big to be managed by this program".

Because the files I need to copy are mostly archives or files about 1 gb. Sometimes are smaller than this. I usually copy what I need to an usb key, but now for some reason I don't know I can't use the same usb key because IcAROS 2.2 can't read them. On 2.1 I had no problem at all with those keys and If I boot IcAROS 2.1 the keys are fully working. For now I can use only a 2 gb usb key.

I don't know how WannaCrypt and Petya works.. can I use SMBv1 safely if I use a router to connect to internet?

How can I configure ftp to not use MyWorkspace? I never used it and the files I want to copy are on different partitions. Copying files to MyWorkspace then on Windows, then deleting it from MyWorkspace is a boring task. How can I copy files from AROS to Windows and not vice versa?

I've managed to get file sharing on Windows 7. It's much more complicated compared to XP. I can transfer files but it takes really long times. Copying 18mb files to Windows takes about 20 minutes. What I'm doing wrong? How can i speed up file transfers?
