Just so you know, Dosbox0.74 is included in all the AROS distros, it just hasnt been uploaded to the archives, so dont use the versions at AROS-Archives

I've seen people mention using AROS grub to dual boot aros/amithlon, but Im no grub expert so I can't offer any assistance sorry.

Another option could be to simply change boot drive priority in your bios to swap between aros and amithlon.

ScummVM and multiple libs of same name

Decided to have another look at ScummVM. Last time I looked at it I recall 2 stumbling blocks, one was that while it compiled fine, at linking stage I was left with hundreds of undefined symbols due to the fact there dozens of libs generated, and spread all over the place within the sources, and secondly, some linklibs are named the same as existing link libs.

The 1st problem Im hoping to solve by doing a search for all linklibs within Scymmvm sources and copy every to a newly created drawer then using path add to "add" them to my libs folder, but how to go about multiple versions of a lib with same name (but very different purpose)?

Im not %100 sure, but I believe you can use .iso images too within Dosbox.
As for converting for physical media to images, again, Im not sure, but perhaps frying pan might be work a look at least.

Regardless of the technical limitations, theoretical possibilities, etc. every single file Ive ever tried over 2GB has failed, be it video files, disc images, whatever.

For the moment Id say it fair to consider 2GB the filesize limit.

Just a quick update to mention Vice3.1 is available.
All AROS architectures are supported although as yet binaries for 68k and ARM aren't released (although 68k AnigaOS is, which should work on 68k AROS).

The 3.x series of Vice is impressively thorough, supporting most c64 expansions from supercpu to mp3 player carts, ide64 and a whole lot more.

@wawa

Its not about peoples preferences. People are free to invest their time and money however they like.
Its about the twisting and contorting of peoples words just so an argument can take place. Even when trying to clarify some people seem to want to argue and antagonize about things that weren't even said. Offer an opinion, or even information in a neutral way and some will get defensive to a point of attack.
The original, actual points aren't even in play anymore. This is what's irritating.
Additionally, despite the Amiga heritage many AROS users, even developers don't come from an Amiga background. Many are enthusiasts of alternative systems and discover AROS that way.

@Nikolaos

That's generally a pretty good analogy.
What I found particularly frustrating though was the fact arguments were being based around things that weren't even said. You try to steer things back to "normal" and they just keep arguing and antagonizing about things they've taken creative license with.
In the end I'm not exactly proud to say I gave up and started playing things their way, which is probably what they wanted in the 1st place.

Thankfully the AROS community is usually quite sane. Its usually only when other "NG" fans get antagonistic and start talking nonsense that AROS fans might hark up a little, and typically its not as over the top as can happen elsewhere.
Not to say we're all perfect. I know I should hold my tongue at times, but being someone who follows all Amiga-oids I can honestly say we have the most diplomatic community.
The "classic" scene is quite good too usually.

This is all a generalization of course, but if it wasn't for AROS I'd most likely have moved on by now.
