Gigabyte has just revealed the specs of the GA-SBCAP3350, which has dimensions of 146 x 102mm (compared to the Raspberry Pi 3 at 85 x 56mm), and it comes with an Intel Celeron N3350 processor (dual-core with a clock speed of 1.1GHz and Turbo to 2.4GHz, with integrated HD Graphics 500). However, that CPU can’t be changed.
But you are free to employ whatever (supported) memory stick you want in the single channel DDR3L SO-DIMM slot, up to a maximum of 8GB (the CPU can’t cope with any more RAM than that).

And you get a mini PCIe slot to fit your choice of mSATA SSD, with a second slot for a half-length Wi-Fi card.
my guess it should work with aros 32bit x86 the main question is price?


Please note I recently bought a Gigabyte board (not this eact one though) and neither the USB, SATA or audio worked with AROS. Please see here.

Cheers,
Nigel.

It seems to be down to how much space you have for the .recycled drawer. If you're down to so little space that the thing you're trying to delete cannot be placed into .recycled, you can't delete it. Removing items from .recycled is a solution, but if it's a new install and .recycled is empty that's no help - so as mentioned, you have to start small to make some space and then progress to the bigger files.

It strikes me there are two possible solutions to this:

1 - Instead of copying the file to be deleted straight to .recyled, copy to ram: first and then put in .recycled. This of course would slow down the process and could be an issue with low ram systems (e.g. 68k).

2 - Have a switch in the delete command to block the recycling action for that delete.

Cheers,
Nigel.

Have a look at my BackupCopy utility on the AROS archives. It lets you mirror or clone a path to another drive based on the age of the files.

Aros and VR, yes Amiga started the original public VR push remember Virtuality?

Funnily enough at the Recursion computer fair recently I was talking to one of the chaps from the Retro Computer Museum who was saying about their (and his own) rather impressive collection of Virtuality machines - all first generation with each having an Amiga 3000 at their heart.

I have been working developing camera's for 360 video and the VR and 360 video market is growing and this is an Area that Amiga/Aros could make a come back if the above points are addressed. I would be interested in pursuing a VR headset for Aros if this work could be done and other ideas I have can then happen but only with minimum GTX970+ performance.

(snip)


Interesting - presumably this would be using WiFi to transmit the video to the headset? By the way, what about a super cheap virtual reality system - I was wondering about a headset containing say two RPis, each driving one 'screen' for each eye, running AROS as their OS of course. Obviously the quality would be limited, but there could be applications - I was partciularly thinking of education.

Finally

To be honest people are not tied to Windows, Mac x86 or Arm. They use the systems that do a job and as long as they are secure they will use a platform that is retro inspired if it does what they want.

I'm glad someone else feels this way. There is so much negativity (not so much here but on other Amiga sites) about the platform - essentially sasying it will never be anything ever again other than a nostalgist's hobby. I still think the platform has a lot to offer and, as cybergof references, its relative simplicity can be an advantage rather than an insurmountable handicap.

Anyway, good to see you back on here,

Cheers,
Nigel.

Maybe is my setup ? By default, when I track incoming events with Trident, all the buttons are working, but with emulator like zsnes, 2 buttons doesn't work (start and select).

I also want changed for an analogue joypad.


This has two parts - configuring Poseidon and configuring the application (in this case zsnes). Poseidon can be configured to produce, on a button press, joystick events, gamepad events or keyboard events. As to zsnes, I've just has a glance at its default configuration and it seems 'start' is configured to the return key and 'select' is RSH, which I presume is right-shift. Poseidon could be configured to generate these as rawkey events when a button on the gamepad is pressed, but it's probably easier to reset these in the zsnes program to be a normal keypress (e.g. 'q') and then Poseidon can simply generate that vanilla key on the button press.

Cheers,
Nigel.

Posiedon is very powerful, but that comes at the expense of being quite complex to set up just right. Anyway, if it's not behaving as you would like it to please do post up and I'll see if I can help.

Cheers,
Nigel.

When you say it's not fully function, what is the issue with it? Have you had a look in Poseidon prefs to see how its various buttons are being mapped?

Cheers,
Nigel.

I can do this. Do you know an easy way to turn on and off SMBv1? Do I need to edit the registry manually?


Sorry, I'm afraid you'll need a Windows expert for that one. But there must be a way - it was mentioned in the posts above.

Cheers,
