People have talked about it but personally I have no interest in it - it doesn't really help us fix the problems encountered in a native environment, or even emulate them.

What are the proper settings to get the SMP version of AROS running under VMWare?


The non-debug build doesn't yet boot.

I'm trying to boot the smp-pc-x86_64-boot-iso dated March 18th but no matter my settings I get the following error:

[Kernel:APIC-IA32]] APICInt_Init: failed to set IRQ 96's Vector gate


That message is benign.

Can anyone explain needs of that native amigassl port ?

It has nothing to do with making it look "more amiga like" - a lot of code expects to use the AmiSSL API to access the SSL code and would need modified to work with openssl directly, and having the code directly linked is just plain stupid if it can be done in a shared way. It is more memory efficient, faster to load, etc, etc.

I got into coding open source by learning to update patches to Linux kernels for newer versions. It isn't complicated if you actually invest the time, and can be very gratifying when you finally learn something and get tangible results.

My point is there's a lot of people whining but have everything at their disposal to actually contribute something back to AROS in the nature of open source - but none seem to take it and want someone else to do all the work for them. Its no wonder our community/software base is so small.

If even a handful bothered it would make a dramatic difference to the amount of software available, but I guess its wasted breath...

Please don't dig up 3+ year old threads to comment - just start a new Topic.

In most cases the same chipset should work but some manufacturers slightly modify the cards so they may not be working exactly the same - you are always best to try the hardware before making a decision.

Also, I have personally not had great experience using 88xx/98xx generation cards so take peoples recommendations with a pinch of salt.

It would be better to get our Gfx drivers updated (which are the best part of 10yrs old now - and 10 revisions behind "trunk" mesa... - infact they haven't been updated once in all the time we have had them) and let people use a wider selection of NVidia cards with far better performance.

Going by the output, it looks like it is something to do with the jpeg library changes again...

I guess I should research this first, but here goes. What is the reason for ABI V0 and V1?


ABI v0 is the code which was just written and added to AROS with no clear direction or goal, other than being somewhat source compatible with AmigaOS 3.x. While that has worked great, it has caused some issues once newer AROS "targets" where available (m68k/64bit/etc), since we had structures with elements in the wrong order needing ifdefs for m68k, and no clear definition of how to handle some calling conventions. There where also concerns about the "custom" replacement code for the AmigaOS packet handling, which in testing proved to actually be a hindrance to AROS, and since we where very fortunate to get a proper packet handler implemented it was decided to replace the broken custom-code with normal AmigaOS like packet behaviour.

Because of this ABI v1 was necessary to fix/clean up those things. Along the way we have had a number of other "goals" for ABI v1 added that are probably not strictly necessary, but also the clean up of the c standard library code took place.

Around the time the issues where identified as needing fixed and work started on cleaning them up, AROS also got a little more popular and started spawning some distros. This of course has caused a little contention since knowing at some point the code from ABI v0 will die and be incompatible, some people incorrectly worry about not being able to get software etc. In the majority of cases the code only needs compiled to work again, or needs some workarounds for AROS removed so that it is more AmigaOS compatible again.

I'm not sure exactly what the issue is or what you are even using ..

but in HDToolBox (on AROS) if you are only going to use the drive with AROS/Amiga's then create an RDB table.

Once that's done double click on the drive to go "into" the partition table, and add an entry. Make sure you change the name if it is the same as your existing one, and the type.

Once it looks ok, double click the ".." above the partitions until you get back to the drive, and save.

Reboot and it should be there.

.. if you are doing it for use with other OS's, you will want to first create an MBR table, and a partition in it.

Next, change the type of the partition to the AROS RDB one, and create an RDB table on it. double click it again to go in and create a normal RDB partition as before.

repeat the ".." step and save, etc, and you are done.

After rebooting the new partition should show up and you can then format it.

AROS only supports older Intel "GMA" graphics hardware natively - you can of course use VESA on others but then you get no hardware 3D or accelerated rendering functions (or screen mode choices etc..)
