No, but you do get the annoying "you are now leaving facebook" page.

But, it does not matter much for me personally as I have a ban on facebook so they have a hard time tracking me.

Are you perhaps receiving pay-checks from facebook to do their grunt work ?

Things are far from ideal but AROS has come a long way.

There used to be a special mod for intel graphics that could be loaded in grub, but afaik is not available for grub 2.

In case you are able to contribute then that would very much be appreciated.

Be sure to try out nightly (ABIV1) downloads for comparison and realize that there is a difference with plain icaros (which is based on v0-abi).

It might perhaps be an idea to get yourself a subscription on the AROS developers ML, in case you haven't already.

@slicer:
Fresh commits can always be found back in the nightly download page which (in theory) gets build every night.

However, do note that current work only gets done on ABV1 while Icaros desktop is ABIv0. e.g. the executable (if it is build by default) is not compatible and won't run on Icaros Desktop.

So you would need to check-out the sources (or downlaod them from nightly download page) and try to compile for ABIv0 (might not always be possible).


BTW: found this project, which might be able to give you some nice ideas/pointers.

ScreenMode lists all VESA resolutions up to 1024x768, then just 1280x1024. Aros defaults to 1280x1024.

i am confused by this answer because of mentioning VESA. Do they only match VESA resolutions or are they actually listed as such ?

Quote:

ScreenMode doesn't list any other modes. HOWEVER, I am quite sure I know what my graphic card supports, so ScreenMode is wrong.

afaik, graphics card in combination with what your monitor reports back.

That is even more a pita in vesa mode as most BIOS and monitors have it wrong and you get a pile of crap that is simply reported back by AROS. It is not AROS' job to fix that.

Quote:

Also, "AROS and/or gma driver does not always play nice with chipsets that have multiple output" is not an acceptable answer as this is not a finished OS and the whole idea is to make it better.

True, but for that to happen the graphics drivers need an update. Afaik, there is no use in pursuing this only from AROS side.

Fact is that nowadays gfx chipset support multiple output or different kind of outputs on the physical outlet. It confuses AROS because the drivers/monitors not always report what they should report.

afaik it is scheduled for a graphics subsystem overhaul (for other reasons) but there are other priorities atm...

I checked and ScreenMode lists them as GMA. And yes, I am connected to a VGA port rather than the DVI port. It just simply refuses to do anything other than what's listed.

and ... what might be listed then ?

In there you'll find a list with supported resolutions so it does not come as a surprise that it is what you are restricted to choose.

However, it is known that AROS and/or gma driver does not always play nice with chipsets that have multiple output.

A search on aminet with cpp and oop indeed revealed some projects making use of oop, and i was also able to locate this (but haven't looked yet).

Resources seems scarce and/or i am unable to locate them. Then again, cpp is not really my kind of thing.

Although cpp is not really my thing please feel free to ask in case you have questions. Still wondering if it is the oop part or the amiga/aros part that is "in your way" (or perhaps both ?).

No, not that i am aware of.

Although there is a cpp wrapper library for mui. You can find it here.

There should be more cpp code out there, it is just that i am not into that myself so am not aware. Perhaps aminet is able to come up with some examples or one of the other compiler packages that is able to compile oop.

It does so (or at least should do so) by default ?

That is, you have to install the development package when you install Icaros desktop.

Note that afaik development is not part of the smaller cd version, rather part of the dvd version.
