It seemed rootless, but it had its limits.

The trick was to make the AROS screen "transparent", so that any underlying linux windows were visible and all event "fall through". Linux windows above AROS were visible anyways.

But there is the problem, that all AROS windows are one "depth-layer", so no linux window can be between them. Bringing one AROS winow to the back would bring all AROS windows to the back.

The build process also builds a cross compiler to build AROS binaries. So the specified gcc version is not the native gcc version, which configure could detect by itself, but the gcc version you want to be used for cross compiling. gcc 6.3.0 is not the default one (yet).

It's back!

Just got a lot of blank pages a few minutes ago.

current source is v2.x

Title speaks about 1.4, which is the old Janus-UAE integrated into Icaros.

The old version was never built inside the AROS source tree, so there are no mmakefiles for it.

The old version also depends on glib and gtk-mui, at least gtk-mui was never available for v1.

So janus-uae 1.x and gtk-mui would have to be ported to v1. Feel free to do it, but this stuff is really old now, I won't touch it anymore, (really) small bugfixes might be possible, if Paolo begs really hard. Other than that, janus-v1.x is v0/32-bit only.

But the sources are available under GPL, so feel free to do , whatever you like with them. I can give you SVN access to the 1.x tree, if you want to port it. Gtk-mui is not even converted to SVN, it is still CVS on sf.net, no idea, when the last real update happened. So no write access possible here.

Icaros Desktop is not yet released to the public (beta testers and patrons only), just in case anybody wonders, where to get it. Thanks for the bug report. I have not yet encountered the write protection problem. The missing extended rom is just a warning, but a known issue.

Although the GUI seems to be complete, there might still be occasions, where manually editing of the config files is still necessary.

Currently I have no time to fix any bugs, but they are noted.

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(!).
