I just bought 5 inno3d gf 6200 cards, still brand new, in sealed wrapped boxes.

I have absolutely no use for them, but it cost me $2 for the lot, so I decided "why not?"

Technically true, but completely irrelevant here.
Find me ONE SINGLE board that is xhci only.
It cant be done.

USB3 ports will work, they just behave as usb2.
Dont use that as a deciding factor on a board as it's pretty much irrelevant.

AROS can indeed compile itself, or at least could in the past.
There was both a completed bounty for the task some years back, and a "refresher", fixing issues that had crept in done by Deadwood a little while back.

lol,...
Read the thread title, cringed and thought, "jeez what nutjob has had what stupid idea now?"

Didnt for a second believe it, but the thread title did draw me in

The only thing about these April Fools jokes when you're Australian is that (at least going by the April Fools "rules") they don't work when coming from overseas.
If you play the prank after midday the lore says that the prankster is "The biggest April Fool". By the time April Fools hits other places it's typically well passed midday.

This loophole has served me well when I get suckered in

@trekiej


Have you tried swapping out hardware? Trying a different graphics card, sound card, nic, etc. might reveal a problem that others haven't encountered due to using different hardware.

Might not help. but it can't hurt

No, why would I ?
Doesnt change what I was saying. It is what it is.

"Interesting project, but the vampire is nothing more than a closed source, restricted, expensive, retro product."

And not a system that will gain a big audience.
That's the only thing I was responding to.

AROS' "alpha state" is somewhat different to what other projects might call "alpha".
Its already for the most part significantly more advanced than AmigaOS 3.x

Interesting project, but the vampire is nothing more than a closed source, restricted, expensive, retro product.

It has nothing to appeal to people that don't already use an amiga. That audience is already saturated. No potential for (m)any new users.
Not the mention the developers are egotists that expect people to adhere to their whims.
Yes, it has appeal to some at the moment, but beyond this initial phase there'll be little interest.

Having said that though I can see why some find it quite appealing.


edit: removed some sillyness

I really need to have a look.
Paid for it about a week or more ago, but the download has thus far remained untouched.

I think Im just addicted to spending money on my AROS hobby more than anything at the moment. Actually using the purchases is secondary

Unfortunately I didnt end up buying the laptop.
The advert was local so Id planned to pick it up today, but noticed at the last minute that no power supply/battery charger was included.

For those interested however the machine is a Dell Vostro 13x0 (where x can be 1 or 2, perhaps there's other models too, I don't know).

The 1310 model has a geforce 8400m, and the 1320 has a 9300m.
Apparently there's models with Intel x3100 graphics as well.

Can't offer any more info unfortunately, but the range do seem like good candidates.

Oh well, back on the hunt I go,........
