I was curious is anyone was at the show to talk about AROS? I've been looking on the other forums, but not seeing anything mentioned.

Anyone know?

Icaros on an Acer

Hello all!

Trying to install 2.1.3 on an Acer Aspire T-180 desktop.
AMD AM2 Athlon CPU, 2GB Ram

It had AROS on it before. But now I can't seem to get it to reinstall.
I'm clicking on the Install AROS icon on the Workbench, then having to do the partition and formatting.

Then it restarts and I run the install again, and choose use space. Then it starts to install then I get the error below.

What should I try?

Python for AROS Still Being Updated?

I was curious if anyone knew if Python for AROS was still being supported? I see that the last version released was 2.5.x back in 2008, and the current version is 2.7.x (Or 3.x if you want want to play dangerous.. LOL)

I have been teaching myself the language and would love to be able to code on AROS and release a few scripts or even small programs for AROS.

but my question is : is it possible and how port aros software to arrm ? will have you to recompile the applications and games (if possible) or do you need to remake from scratch ? i'm not a coder ho no but people at a amiga party last weekend asked me about.
steff


I could totally be wrong, so someone correct me if I am, because I am still kind of getting my feet with learning Python, but I think it's a matter of just compiling the code on a machine with the aforementioned processor. With all the right dependencies met and such.

The compiler converts the written and human readable code to machine code for the processor.

Apart from getting some experiences and maybe fun of the port, do you really think it's worth a native port?


Definitely. Even if the Pi disappeared tomorrow, the work done so far towards supporting ARM native should be usable by someone else.


I think the Pi has a long life ahead of it. It's sold over 1 million units, is extremely popular with DIY'ers and a host of other tech communities, like Ham Radio, and with the low cost to it, people are buying multiple units. I plan on buying another after my wedding is paid off.

Let's also not forget, the target demo for the Pi is coders. An inexpensive platform to get people into coding, especially the younger kids. I already got a copy of Python for Kids and will be helping out my daughter while I am also learning Python as well.

AROS will be a welcome addition in my opinion. I can't wait to setup an SD card to run it on.

Agreed. I'm sure there will be a ton of outrage and the hardware manufactures will have no choice but to go Microsoft and tell them they gotta change it or risk a backlash.

I don't see what the problem is. If their OS is so superior, then terms like this are not necessary. If I see a cool piece of hardware I want to run AROS on, I should be able to install it on there. Right?

I was checking Slashdot and saw this.

Just when I thought they had turned a corner from being evil with that whole Kinect and Windows Phone hacking thing. Maybe leopards really don't change their spots.

Is there anything in the Controllers list? Any errors in the log window?


Nothing is listed in the controller's list. Terminills and I tried to trouble shoot this a couple nights ago. He had me click on New, and click on the pciusb.device that was listed. When I did, that showed up in the controllers list, but when I click Online, I got the follwoing error:


"Opening DEVS:USBHardware/pciusb.device unit 0 failed device/unit failed to open (-1).

We tested it on a nightly build of AROS and got the same results.

I would think something would show up.


Perhaps AROS doesn't recognise the USB controller on the motherboard. Could you tell us the exact model of your HP PC?


Sure, it's an HP Media Center PC, Model: m7350n, Prod#: EL406AA-ABA.

According to device manager, it says it's an Intel 82801G (ICH7 Family) USB Universal Host Controller.
