General amiga forums just tend to spiral down into pointless arguments and trolling anyway.


Remembering comp.sys.amiga.advocacy ... I don't know, if there is really a spinning down. I guess the trolling has been there always. Maybe the amount of real discussions (or the real topics to discuss) tends to spiral down.

I somehow would miss the disappearance of the site. The site always reappears, so no problem at all.

And it always reminds me to do something useful instead .

And although I do have a FB account, I use it not very often (just to contact exactly one friend). I would not use "aros-exec on Facebook". Ok, more time for something useful ..

Thanks for the offer, but my time is quite limited these days (might get better in the near future).

I am doing this stuff for fun, so no need to pay me and to be honest, I don't really need the money (although you can never have enough of course ).

From a developers POV abi v1 is nicer and more comfortable. Whenever I port something back to v0 for testing purposes I notice the shortcomings. I can't tell you concrete issues, but you notice all the missing details, which have not been ported back.

And if we talk about v0, what you all call v0 is not the "official" v0 as you can find it in the svn. It is a backport branch. So strictly speaking, we have more than one v0 currently.

Also keep in mind, that AROS/m68k is already v1. 64bit (x86_64) is v1 only, too (even if there is in theory a v1/i386).

As you asked for applications:
A migration from v0 to v1 is quite straight forward and I guess it is quite simple most of the time, just a recompile and some smaller fixes.

*But* a migration from v0/i386 to v1/i386 is useless, as v1/i386 is IMHO a dead end (does it work at all, never tried myself?). So you would also need to migrate to 64bit.

And a 64bit port for applications is in theory just a recompile, too. But in reality it can be quite painful, as a lot of stuff which did not matter in 32bit is really a showstopper in 64 bit environments.

Did you ever try to read iff files written with a 32bit application with a 64bit application? This is were the pain starts and this is just one minor problem.

So when it comes to Janus-UAE, there won't be a 64bit port (at least, not from me). It might be easier to get the WinUAE port finished (which is abiv1/64bit anyways) and merge the Janus-features in. The current WinUAE can be a 64 bit application, the old e-uae on which Janus-UAE is based, was never designed for 64bit back then.

But I don't have the time at the moment anyways, so both things won't happen in the near future anyways.


And there is still:
http://aros.sourceforge.net/documenta ... ications/drafts/abiv1.php

It was last updated 2008(!).

Additional question: Is it possible for aros to work with remote xserver? Because I run aros in docker container but the xserver come from my local linux instance.


Running AROS hosted on a remote X-Server is no problem. It's the usual way I am running it.

It would make sense, to develop new software for ABI v1. Some bugs have been fixed there already and you may end up fixing them again.

So I would suggest to develop for v1 and then port it back to v0 to include it into Icaros.

Ideal case would be to develop for v1/64 bit and recompile it for v0/32 bit.

I did not verify it, but as far as I can see, time_t is defined as

typedef __int32_t __time_t;

I can't find a different definition for 64bit archs, so I guess no AROS version is save after 2038?

For abi v1/64bit time_t should be defined as 64bit..?

Sigh. No I can't. I remember, that back then I simply compiled the glib sources, no big changes required, I just disabled the timer code in there.

Last time I did some fixes for janus-uae 1.4 I also wanted to rebuild glib, which now seems not so simple any more, but I invested not much time into that.

So as a conclusion: I don't have the original sources anymore. I should have added them to the repo back then.

So the 32bit v0 binary libglib.a is all that is available at the moment.

Somehow something is messed up ad sf.net.. I can't change any of the properties at the moment. As soon as I find some time, I'll look into that.
