You should reconsider your priorities
Web security is important these days.


AROS is an open source project that only improves if people who want to see it improve do some of the work required to complete those improvements.

If you follow deadwood's posts here, his blog articles, and chat with him in the #aros irc channel, then you would know that deadwood has several AROS projects that he is working on, some of which are extremely important to other AROS users and contributors.

And he certainly isn't the only one. All of the active AROS developers that I've chatted with online are working on projects that are extremely important to most of the rest of us.

I only discovered AROS recently, but I am really excited about it and have started learning how AROS works, the architecture and source code behind it, so I can contribute and help improve AROS. It is exciting to me that I have the opportunity to contribute to the re-implementation of one of the greatest home computing platforms ever created.

deadwood announced fairly recently that he did not have time for OWB, which means there is a great project that is AROS compatible, used by a majority of AROS users,
ready and waiting for someone to pick it up and make it even better. Interested?

Jon

I wrote three new blog posts. And I'm going to write one or two more before the weekend is up.v

I haven't caught on as quickly as I had hoped, but I am getting there. And the more I learn, the easier other stuff becomes.

Why am I sharing this? No reason really, other than to post my 100th post. :)

Ah, I see that now. Until now, I've only been grepping for the word "error" and that sort of thing. Hm, I'll look into that. I need to see what the output looks like without redirection.

I also need to google how to enlarge the "history" buffer of terminal in Debian, that way I can copy more of the history without relying on redirecting everything correctly.

The characters are irrelevant - the problem looks like you are trying to use a relative path for portssources, instead of the absolute path.

Once again, thank you!

I've written my own "start from nothing, check out code, build" script for linux-i386 hosted, using information found across the wikis and various other posts. And yes, I was using a relative path. I'll fix that. :)

Once I'm satisfied with this script, I'm going to blog about it and make it available for anyone who wants to review it. I'd love for one or two of experts here to review it, if you have the interest. I'd like to see it adapted as needed and made an official getting started script of sorts. Prior to this, the last time I wrote linux scripts was when I started and maintained bugzilla for a project in 2000.

Jon

Edit: Earlier today (8/20) I learned that there already is a "give me AROS" script. That would have been helpful to start with, although writing my own was very educational. Now I need to grab that one and review it for possible improvements to my own script.

There is no mandatory requirement for the sdl headers. If they are found the sdl host gfx driver is built, otherwise it is not.

Good to know. Added to list of things that I could add to the wiki. ;)

I'm using the two folder method, creating a linux-i386 folder, making it the current folder, then launching configure & build from there. I expect to see an AROS folder created in the linux-i386 folder.

Kalamatee wrote:
Why do you expect to see an "AROS" folder?

Because the instructions to start AROS refer to the linux-i386/AROS/boot folder. So I thought the build would create an AROS folder with all of it's sub-folders (such as boot) under the linux-i386 folder that I created. If this helps, something like (from memory, not really a quote):
Quote:

$ mkdir linux-i386
$ cd linux-i386
$ ../src/configure
$ make


[scratches head, wondering why my build isn't creating the folders that it is supposed to]

Now I see that the "linux-i386" folder refers to (folder where I ran make)/bin/linux-i38, so once my build is finished, AROSBootstrap is in (for me, anyway):
(AROS prj)/linux-i386/bin/linux-i386/AROS/boot/linux

If I had any decent experience with linux or AmigaOS, that might have been obvious to me. But I would have never figured that out without a better understanding of linux and AmigaOS.

(Unfortuntely I am also used to an interactive tree view of a folder/file structure, and I've yet to find an app that I like in linux.)

Thanks to your reply, I gained a much better understanding of the development folder structure and how it relates to the generated AROS file system.

This is a good example why I would like to help with the wiki. I'm not a great tech writer, but content can be edited. I think the online documentation needs to have a "If you want to try AROS and don't have any previous experience using an Amiga, start " type page. And I think newcomers are the best to bring content to that page.

(I've sent emails and posted on the website forum, but I haven't heard anything about my offer to help.)

Thank you, very much. I realize that explanation was very basic, simple, and probably obvious to anyone else here, but it helped me tremendously. Definitely needs to be in the wiki. At least, in one of them. :(

I am redirecting both step it and stderr. I don't know how to capture more output. If anyone has suggestions, I would appreciate it.

Yep, aros-exec did. Kinda. The link below is valid, yet it appears like the other link:

https://github.com/JonRobertson/jon-am ... r/2016_08_19__15_16_19.7z

I accidentally posted it to the wrong thread initially. I copied that message text before I deleted the post, not paying attention to the fact that the forum was not displaying the full URL. :(
