No, its a toggle between EHCI/XHCI if memory serves that you want

Hi Steve,

The problem is the USB on these machine does not work at all; its not for USB 3 devices, it's just for USB full stop.

Cheers,
Nigel.

Stop using motherboards with VIA-chipset. Or it might be that the motherboard (BIOS) doesn't list the USB PCI device in correct order as stated on USB specifications. Those are really ancient motherboards.


These are not VIA - one is Gigabyte, the other an Acer laptop, both less than a year old and bought new. Basically AROS has no driver for modern xhci controllers.

Cheers,
Nigel.


Most boards you can change USB3 into USB2 via EHCI/OHCI/XHCI BIOS settings so USB3 is NICE but not necessary for AROS

Certainly that works on my X99 board

I really think our biggest limitation is the lack of modern VGA drivers :(

I think Steve nailed it when he talked about the need for AROS to have good driver support, as that is what will get people trying it and using it.

Nvidia Fermi support is good to have but Fermi is 7 years old. I was Googling around and found this - https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page ... ouveau-DDX-Pascal-Support

It seems to suggest that adding Pascal to Nouveau was almost trivial. I'm sure there is MUCH more to it but I would suggest that we need a bounty for the most modern cards to be supported. I have a GT1030 I would love to use for AROS and really don't want to be forced into some power guzzling GTX460 or 450. Yeah VESA... how wonderful. But I would pay towards Pascal support in AROS.

Enjoyed your videos Steve.

A few things made me wonder

SATA - why not use the SATA port but switch the BIOS setting to Legacy which is IDE emulation (pure SATA would be AHCI setting). That would allow SSDs and modern SATA devices But no TRIM support.

SATA - also try a SATA to IDE adapter. Then you could probably avoid the need for an IDE card.

GPUs - I know GTX460 works - Fermi chip and I used one with AROS before but also GT610/GT520 should work, also GT630/GT730 (those with Fermi chips - some are Kepler chipped). And of course GTX5xx should. Would be nice if the database was vaguely current (not your responsibility!!)

LAN - noticed you using Intel card... but PCI. Why not grab a cheap (£3) PCIE Realtek gigabit card ?



Looking forward to part 3

Thanks. Nothing there for me to get upset about. I agree.. Real life gets in the way and other priorities. I'm personally pleased to see ARM progressing.

I might have a try at compiling AROS for PPC some time. But again it needs time and I'm studying part time as well as working so not much free time!

Why not run the PPC AROS hosted by OSX? Because it hasnt been updated since 2014 on the Nightlies despite a Nightly supposedly being every night??? :(

I wondered... and then I thought why not run AROS hosted by Linux PPC and then I saw.. no such thing.

I wonder why.. Anyone know?

Does anyone have Icaros running via KVM on a Linux machine? With video passthrough on a Nvidia card perhaps?

Just checking out what might be feasible with the right hardware

I posted a link to an ABIv0 version that you can add to Icaros 2.0.3 (post #114 in this thread).

Incidentally, why 2015-05-09?


Cos that was the date of the latest one on the site?

Thanks for the link. Will test Icaros with tweaked audio next week. Fingers crossed. If it works I can sell one of my systems (maybe two!)

Neil, is this driver already a part of the nightly builds?


Only for ABIv1.


Sorry for dumb Q but.. this means it isnt in Icaros 2.03 yet? Is it as simple as download ABIv1 image 2015-05-09, write it to a USB stick (Rufus?) and boot it?

I was looking at an ALC1150 mobo but nobody reports testing on that. I do have an "unsupported" ALC892 I'd like to see supported and can test if I understand right! Plus ALC221 on a mini PC
