Interesting project, but its more x-amiga, or live booting AF style than amithon (which while it has some similarities, in my opinion is also different enough to be defined as it own thing vs the uae based distros).

This isn't to to take away from the project you've posted, it seems a good idea and I'll definitely download it and have a proper looks.

First thing that comes to mind is the fact it's a BE byte ordering CPU. I'm not exactly sure of the status at the moment with the WebKit sources, but at that time this was an influence (rather than outright problem) in usage on these architectures, especially with some js heavy sites.

Other's will know more, but I suspect there could also be some dependencies missing too for 68k. A lot of the tools and librarie required are available, but are they recent enough?

Also, and a quick sidebar, but is there a guide for building Odyssey? (For x86 abi0)? I'd like to play with it, but I want to get it building before I mess with it.

The "problem" however is that smp aros is 64bit abi1 only, meaning only software for that arch will run. As such there's no real software base to create a distro around.

A bounty to produce binaries for 64bit abi1/smp is a better option for the moment.

AROS CDs/Cleaning Up The Archives

Hi all,

I finally started on a project that has useful side-effects.
This project is compiling AminetCD style compilations, but for AROS.
The most useful of the side-effects is that it will finally put an end to the mystery of "What Stuff No Longer Works"


Anyway, I thought I'd open this thread to both report back my findings, and to try to encourage others to report on any software they've encountered that no longer works (along with which version of AROS they're using (Nightly/from roughly when? Distro/Which One?)

Thanks in advance.

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.
