This does work - but it's a bit of a pain. You have to have the external monitor connected at boot and keep hitting the screen swap function key until you see the external display working.

Cheers,
Nigel.

Is the DVD accessed via SATA? If so it could be that the chipset for this machine is not supported and so after the kernel boots and AROS's SATA driver takes over the DVD stops working and hence the 'no bootable media'. In this case it could be worth trying the BIOS settings to see if there is an IDE emulation mode.

Cheers,
Nigel.

Ask me again in two or three months time. I'm planning to do some work on USB, so I might be able to fit that in.


That would be fantastic. I've always though one of the biggest issues with running AROS on a laptop has been the challenge of finding a supported audio chipset; having USB audio to fall back on would rmake a real difference there.

Nigel.

That sounds like a great idea - I hope it goes well and gets lots of interest. I'm looking forwards to reading any report on the day.

Cheers,
Nigel.

The show went ahead yesterday with much the same conributors as in previous years, although it was noted that my AROS display was the last remnant of an Amiga-heritage presence, save for a couple of A1200s (one from the VCM and one from Binary Dinosaurs) running games. In contrast, the RiscOS group were again out in force showing their OS on a range of machines including RiscPC, R-Pi and a brand new ARM board made just for RisOS. I think the big difference there is that, despite different members of their community having their own focus (desktop vs Pi, etc.), they never shattered into factions and work together to advance their OS.

Some bad news; it looks like this year will be the last year the show will happen in this format. In furture it may be a more school focussed mid-week event, obviously meaning people such as myself will not be able to contribute. So if this is the last time in this format I'd like to say thanks to yoodoo2 for organising this and giving AROS a space over the last four years.

However, some good news is that Stuart Williams, who retired Retro Computing News last year, is resurrecting Amiga User International as a web publication. He's been granted the rights to reproduce the content of the magazine and is also looking for new content, including AROS news. There should be a report on the show and the AROS display there in the near future.

Cheers,
Nigel.

You have an old version of WinRAR, you need to install version 5 or later.


I'm not using Windows - this is unrar on AROS.

Indeed - if any beta testing is needed I'd be very happy to contribute.

Cheers,

Sounds good. Just out of interest, is this based on a recent nightly or an older version?

Cheers,
Nigel.
