You would require the normal (but patched) gnu toolchain.

Patches can be found in aros source-tree. In addition to that you would need collect-aros (also found inside aros source-tree).

You could also opt for the gimmearos script (available in aros source-tree and/or aros archives) that could help you setup things.

More information can also be found here and for other requirements (building aros itself) see also here.

If you are running on intel then it would just as easy to compile under hosted, that usually works with installing the development package and when projects are not too large/complicated.

Vacation time often results in somewhat slower response.

I do not know the details, for that you would have to wait for an answer from paolone.

The fact that such update is missing from icarosdesktop.org download page nor any indication with regards to autoupdater so you could perhaps update from 2.1.3 to 2.2 seems to indicate that there were/are some serious issue(s) with 2.2 version of Icaros Desktop.

If that is indeed the case then i'm afraid you're stuck with 2.1.3.

Just to make sure: did you installed a fresh 2.2.1 or did you took the update path from previous version(s) to finally end up at 2.2.1 (and which is perhaps could be reason to cause you such issues) ?

fwiw: i never experienced any malloc (assuming you made a typo) related issues when using icaros desktop (*)

PS: are you running native, hosted or are you using a VM ?

(*) with perhaps the exception of trying to run software that requires opengl on a machine that has no supported hardware driver (in which case the software drivers kicks in and requires a shiteload of memory, think GB's depending on the gl dependent software being invoked).

In addition to what was already written, you could perhaps take a look at how ALB42 made some (simple) shared test example libraries (here). Originally they were made for testing with Free Pascal but since they are shared libraries they can be used from whatever programming language.

Required information is detailed in the readme, and makefiles are present (to build a library 'outside' the normal build-system).

That's a bit vague, to say the least

Any particular error message that could be able to help us pinpoint the issue ?

Note that creating a bin / cuesheet combination should be done with care. It must really be a mixed mode image.

tbh, i do not know if the AROS port of Dosbox has any particularities on that topic (i simply never tried, afaik that is).

A mixed mode cd requires cuesheet for dosbox in order to distinguish the data-tracks form audio tracks (it doesn't do/detect that on itself).

More can be read about that here in the dosbox wik, which also links to the cuesheet wikipage.

Alternatively there is another solution with extracting audiotracks from the cd, and provide them in another format (such as .wav/.ogg), but afaik that depends on the game (whether the game supports loading audio-tracks using this method or not) (*)

(*) I might be wrong about that, and it is also possible with using a cuesheet, pointing at the (ripped) audio filenames.

Please forgive my memory:
- Used distro (could perhaps matter, not sure yet)
- Used Filesystem
- Offending filenames (preferably with full path)

fwiw: filenames that are offending for your host OS should not happen. Sometimes it can be tiresome to get them removed properly.

In case you wish to experiment, you could perhaps try to remove them from AROS side. You can mount about any folder as additional disk to AROS hosted, see also here.

It most certainly smells like it...

I also do not quite understand the error you mentioned before (as in i can't seem to pinpoint where that might be coming from, and if it would "terminate" the installation script).

If all else fails: try again ?

Which core libraries? "Can" be opened, or "are" opened? Why "should", not "have to", or "dont"? ...

See my point? We're talking about computers here. There's no "may" or "should", computers don't judge. (I know I'm simplifying here.)

That's why i use Pascal.

All libraries are automatically opened by inclusion of their respective header file (that is if it wasn't already opened by the RTL to begin with)

See, my point ? ;-p

It depends on the compiler, although for AROS there is a bit more to it then only the compiler. Such knowledge comes with time, my friend

In an ideal world, perhaps yes.

Never have i seen an API/SDK that is completely documented, free of errors, and some 'exposed' functionality sometimes isn't even stable. (hello m$ with the big bucks ... or was it bugs ).

how do i do that?
i see "login", and fields for user and password, "preferences", "help", ... but nothing that says "create account" or "register".

The login procedure on trac has vanished ages ago .

I could have sworn there was some text on trac describing the process, but i seem unable to locate it.

Luckily, it is written at aros.org here.

Please email your request to the Subversion administrator. Your mail should include your real name and preferred user name. An account will then be created with a temporary password. Once you receive notification of account creation, you can change your password through the trac interface.

please read that section at the aros.org page i linked to and locate the correct contact address.
