Hi,

Assuming you are using two partitions (small fat16 boot and $76 for os3.9)

format c: /s

substitute the drive letter eg, D: if more than one fat partition

so that the fat16 partition is wiped (be sure which partition) and the msdos system files are copied and the amithlon/isolinux CD files are copied there as well.

MSDOS:
-------
AUTOEXEC.BAT
COMMAND.COM
KERNEL.SYS
LOADLIN.EXE <- kicks the Amithlon Kernel into life

Amithlon:
--------
AMITHLON <-like 'SMALL' but for 'BIGIRD.GZ
SMALL <-Contains boot-params for Amithlon, used by 'LOADLIN.EXE'
EMUBOX.GZ <-The Amithlon Kernel itself
SMALLIRD.GZ <-Amithlon files minus internal minimal AmigaOS install
BIGIRD.GZ <-The whole thing (only really useful when you have issues)

So, you're booting MSDOS which then calls LOADLIN.EXE to boot the Amithlon kernel itself...

loadlin @small

FYI, bigird has a small internal os3.9 within so one fat16 or possibly fat32 partition would be needed

loadlin @amithlon


grub entry would be something like

;set root=(hdx,y) for the fat16 partition
set root=(hd0,1)
chainloader +1

Only tried amithlon once a very long time ago so hazy over the details now.

Hi,

Going from this http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=31613&page=26
I would guess that the x in set root= is the partition number and linux16 line adjusted to suit the kernel, etc you are using

menuentry "Amithlon" {
set root=(hd0,x)
linux16 /boot/kern310 console_level=0 init=/linuxrc root=/dev/ram0 mem=768M vga=769 ramdisk_size=2310 leavepages=5200 cachesize=65536
initrd16 /boot/smallird.gz
}

Hi,

Just wondered f there was any way using already available tools to save any/all user setup of AROS, apps to another drive just in the case of a crash which may mean losing them?

I am thinking of a list of files from a default install which is used to test where any files from sys: and/or briefcase: (for example) have changed (size / date) and then save them to another drive to backup.

Only ask as you can spend hours or longer setting up the look of your OS.

Hi,

Thanks for that.

Just curious do I take it there is not much interest from the community in this bounty. Or have I got that wrong?

Hi,

Think it was tested a few years ago but not a lot of support then, you could try now and see if the audio now works ?

Hi,

Curious if there was any interest at the moment for the above, I understand Kal attempted this a few years ago



MCM57xx Broadcom NetXtreme and II?? covering Dell D600 to D830 and maybe D510 to D530 and D410 to D430


Bounty ends when binary driver is tested with a few hardware options 32bit and 64bit and source placed in the AROS repositry



Unknown

Not sure if BCM57xxx would be as well ??

Can the driver be endian neutral ??



Regards
Jeff

Hi,

Atheros AR5BXB6 and the AR5BXB62 appear not to work from your testing. Now updated.

Can you give us an idea what type of card (mini pci pcie) you are looking for ?

Hi,

Thanks for this update.

Does anyone else get a blank background in native (install on a usb stick and running on a laptop) where any gma lvds mode of 24bit bgr0 produces the said black background with sometimes the pointer becoming invisible/white dot ?

Apart from that so far, enjoying it.

Hi,

Can I ask if you tried running OWB from RAM: ? Did it make any difference ?

Are you still using the Intel Project board - intel d945gsejt ? Seems the board takes laptop ram - has this ram been checked by any testing RAM software ?

OWB is not perfect but can be a lot of fun. Just a few last thoughts.
