after quite some time I took a look at power2people.org

all assigned projects' deadlines are expired (some by years).
does anyone look after this?

and - just out of curiosity - how do I pick up a project?

I have a couple of ThinkPads and would love to use them with AROS native. But so far, Linux hosted seems to be the best option, because there's no native WiFi or PCMCIA support, and only VESA native graphics anyway.

You can get native WiFi with a NetGear WG 111 V3 USB stick (AROS: rtl8180.device), but it's USB2.0 only IIRC, so not every ThinkPad will do.

Would love to see more/better AROS native support for the ThinkPads! :)

Note that you can install AROS to a USB stick and just use it from there. That way you will see if AROS (with(out) it's hardware support) works for you, and you dont have to worry about installation on your laptop.

you can also use vbcc to cross-compile to AmigaOS.
if your code runs under AmigaOS, porting to AROS shouldn't be a problem (using native AROS gcc).
requires some setup (e.g. some AmigaOS), but you get the benefit of an AmigaOS binary. :)

(if you're not interested in supporting AmigaOS, gcc/binutils/... cross-compiler toolchain is probably better suited for you. you can re-use/write more posix/linux/gcc style code, and you skip the whole AmigaOS setup part (e.g. net.lib for networking functions for vbcc).)

hi,

just stumbled upon this:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UIP_(micro_IP)

(copy URL manually, aros-exec doesnt like brackets in URLs)

what do you think?
would this be worth porting to AROS?
would this be an improvement over current ArosTCP?

Thanks (seriously!)

To answer your question, and/or just to make my point clear:

I don't know what library I'm asking about. Bsdsocket? Any other? You tell me...

Which core libraries? "Can" be opened, or "are" opened? Why "should", not "have to", or "dont"? ...

See my point? We're talking about computers here. There's no "may" or "should", computers don't judge. (I know I'm simplifying here.)

You may have seen some other of my posts about "GetRastPort(screen)" function, and how/when to use it. Then someone tells me I can also use Screen->RastPort. Well, then why don't we drop the whole API and use structures and pointers directly? No, I "can't" use Screen->RastPort, that's simply wrong. I "have to" use GetRastPort(), that's the intended way of using the API. (And there's good reasons for sticking to a defined API.)

Don't get me wrong, I'm not ranting here - all I'm trying to say is:
a) AROS is a mess
b) Any API has to be clearly structured, and used accordingly, there should be no room for interpretation, e.g. all libraries should be handled equally, please, dear developers!

Of course I'm aware of the fact that you and everyone else is in the same situation as I am: AROS is a moving, wobbling target.
I'm not criticizing your guessing! I just think AROS shouldn't be a guessing game.

Once again, to make that perfectly clear:
- I probably know less about AROS than everyone else around here!
- No ranting here, just trying to help improve the situation!
- I'm a big fan of AROS and Amiga!
- Thanks for your (and everyone's) reply (replies)! (you DID help me! again!)
- Thanks everyone for the amazing work you're doing on AROS!

"...existing developers will need to create accounts through the web interface at https://trac.aros.org"


how do i do that?
i see "login", and fields for user and password, "preferences", "help", ... but nothing that says "create account" or "register".

Quote:
(if you created an account on the previous trac deployment, that account may still be there, so you'll have an account already in that case).


no, i didn't. i applied via e-mail.

Quote:
If this does still apply, I don't know.


I doubt it.
