I don't know how WannaCrypt and Petya works.. can I use SMBv1 safely if I use a router to connect to internet?


I would say no, as there is always a risk, especially now that the exploit is in the wild and Petya apparently employed more than just the one used by Wannacrypt. I guess it depends of whether you're happy to take that risk.

Best not to take my advice anyway, my wife's laptop still runs XP :).

Yes SMB v1 was turned off by default in the March security update for Windows systems. WannaCrypt and Petya both exploit SMBv1 so it should remain turned off.

FWIW SMB file transfer with a *nix host (Free BSD 10) is also about the same speed. I don't know which version it's using..

AROS fills a niche of sorts in that it is the only open-source Amiga OS replacement and also the only one that runs natively on x86, as well as m68k.

As for its practical use, sure the *nixes will do most things better for the same low price, but for my money they aren't half as fun.

@ntromans
Funny you should mention the case, it also makes a cameo appearance here at 3:00 (not my one of course) => https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9_zegFb_fkA

@sabbate
I've also had problems with Janus-UAE and never really had it running well. It's a shame but I'm hopeful one of us will be able to sort out the issues in time.

nice :) , you run Icaros on pentium III ?


Nah, it's just the case. Inside is a Core 2 Duo board I found on the street that happens to work really well with AROS. I'd like something that looks more Amiga-like but there doesn't seem to be anything on the market.

I am thinking of investing in a new set of Amiga-style keycaps though..

My AROS PC is an old beige case I bought in about 1998. It's not pretty but I like it. It fits a full ATX board and is smaller than a Fractal mini.

It runs native Icaros 2.2 which I'm having a lot of fun with, but sometimes it works so well that I forget what I'm using. So far I've just done some regular PC-type stuff including web, YouTube (!!), finding directions (Mapparium) and copying files from server to MP3 player. I need to explorer this OS more, play mods and also get creative.

I was toying with the idea of running simultaneous hosted and 68k environments on Linux, but lately real life (tm) has put a stop to this project.

I tried a couple of slightly older models (T60 and T500 IIRC) and was basically limited to VESA display and no LAN or sound, however I didn't persist much. As I have since found out sound sometimes takes a little more effort to make it work well.

For network the best bet may be to invest in a compatible Atheros WLAN card to replace whatever it comes with.

Just done some more testing, here are the results:

Realtek 8138A = OK
Realtek 8139C = OK
Realtek 8168 = FORGET IT!

Motherboards used for testing:

Gigabyte GA-G41MT-D3 = Good (except onboard RTL 8168)

ASRock Z68 Extreme 3 Gen 3 = OK. Again onboard 8168, but may also freeze occasionally from unrelated cause (hence why I suspected the 8139 earlier).

In conclusion, I now have the recipe for a stable AROS system again so all is well. Thanks again for your help and hopefully this info is useful. Certainly, it looks like we'd be better off without the 8168 driver at the moment as it's in an unhappy state.

So is it 8168 or 8169? It's just that in your earlier post you mentioned 8169. I tired both 8168 and 8169 drivers with my new harware and whilst the 8168 did lock up the machine the 8169 worked fine.


Sorry, my mistake. It's definitely 8168.

Initially I thought it was 8169 as that driver actually worked better, as in it would function for a while before eventually locking up.

Also although I didn't try the elimination tests, my 8139 seems to have the same issues. I have a couple of revisions of this card so I'll do some more testing with them.
