I have to use hard compression to fit into the archives and only latest RAR version supports that.


I wonder if it would be possible to have the archive limit raised a little for distros.

I don't know if it will help in your situation, but I used the script in Icaros to setup Icaros hosted on Slackware. It was so simple even I could do it

To use find, just type find from the shell. Or to get help with AROS commands type help.

Typing sh will take you to a bash like shell but it may not be what you want in this case.

@caveman that's what I thought too. However if I try to compile a simple helloworld ("gcc -o HelloWorld hello.c") I get the following error:

"gcc: error trying to execute 'cc1': execvp: No such file or directory".



I just tried doing a Hello world on Icaros and it works.

Try changing the line to read, gcc hello.c -o HelloWorld
Nevermind, don't do that. It was just a stab in the dark.

Instead, I would completely reinstall Icaros and try again. You do not need to add any development files. It should be ready to go.

If that does not work, try using a ABIv0 nightly. Gcc should also work on the nightly without adding any extra files.

If you still have problems with a simple compile, then the machine might not be configured right, if possible try another machine.

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.

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

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

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

Hey there,

I'm trying to set up a dev environment on AROS (Icaros 2.2.1) and I'm a little stuck with installing g++.

Is anyone able to help with the process?

Thanks!

If you just want to compile something on Icaros, g++ should already be available to use from the shell.

Ps: If you're using the Icaros lite version, try the full version for g++.

I've finally tried the Finder app in the archive and it's okay, but it does not have most of the features that I use in the AROS Find utility. So thumbs up, for the AROS find utility.

And my wishlist (if anyone wants to compare notes)
- A ghosted start button (until the search is complete).
- A button to disable automatic sorting.
- A button to send the search results to a text file.
- And multiple search patterns, like (#?.c #?.h) or (#?.ogg #?.wav #?.mp3)

@ Kalamatee

I'm not sure I understand the distinction, are you saying that the newer Intel chipsets cannot be updated until gallium is updated?

Works if you insert a space and shift the cursor over. Is that cheating?

echo " ;*E[2D*""
";

And about the million bucks...

@ Nikos

Yeah, it's all about the drivers. Imo, a good video chipset can help make many apps seem smooth even with a slower cpu. The 945 chipset in the old Aspire was in vogue over 10 years ago, but the AROS 945 driver still does not seem to support GLSL.

Personally I prefer desktops. But I agree, a fully supported laptop with a recent chipset would pack more punch off the shelf, than a custom built Vampire or Arm kit for example.

Also, I'm not so sure that many people have the time or interest to build their own Vampire or Arm system anyway. Perhaps a situation like OS4 would evolve, where you could have an internet distributor build and repair custom AROS machines for you. But I don't think the AROS market is large enough yet.

But at this point, we can only hope that the devs can find the time and manpower to work on drivers too.
