The build of 18.4.17 gets further on my Celeron machine, but not to Wanderer. Booting in VESA, the last kernel message is about untialising EHCI etc., it then goes to a blank black sreen, there's a few more seconds of optical drive activity and then it hangs; no drive activity, blank screen.

Cheers,
Nigel.

Do you get any audio out or just crackling? Is this just for MPlayer or anything that produces audio?

Cheers,
Nigel.

Just to say I've popped the latest report onto the Amigaworld thread.

Cheers,
Nigel.

Hi Sabbate,
Many thanks for keeping this 'live' and feeding back developments. Real3D running on multi-core AROS would really deserve to be described by that massively overused word 'awesome'.

Cheers,
Nigel.

I'm sure, if all these open source-programmers in the last 20 years had done just if they get money, no alternative operating system would have worked. AROS exists since 1995, 22 years. Is it a daily useable operating system? No. Too less supported platforms, to less supported hardware, no actual software.

(snip)


I have to repectfully disagree here. I have three main machines (netbook, laptop and desktop) and on each AROS is the only OS. It covers my net needs (OWB, YAM), media playing (mplayer), work requirements (PageStream & FinalCalc, admittedly under Janus, ghostscript, AROSpdf and Hollywood for building apps to be used at work), image editing (too many to mention), etc. At work of course I have to use Windows as well as my own AROS netbook, but for home 99.5% of the time I only every boot AROS.*

I'm just about to invest in a (for once, brand) new motherboard to build up into a media server (music & video) and home controller; sure, you have to be damn careful in your choice of hardware, but I'd say that's a small price to pay. The motherboard I'm considering is just £30 and looks, from the specs, to be natively supported for network & audio; I can add an nvidea card for graphics easily enough.

OSx86 exists just since 11 years, half the time, and even long-time Mac users are switching to it because Hackintoshes are cheaper and more powerful than real Macs. And the community also had to program lots of PC hardware drivers, and it works from a Pentium 4 to a Xeon 12 core CPU.

(snip)


I think the biggest issue here has been the fracturing of the old Amiga community into the four camps, diluting even further what was a vastly smaller user/developer base than the Mac enjoys.** It simply needs more developers. Heck, maybe I'll try to learn C and properly contribute when I eventually get to retirement age...

Cheers,
Nigel.

* The other 0.5%? Occasionally I have to use a live Linux DVD if the partition on a usb drive is too screwed up for HDToolbox to sort it.

** Sure, everyone has their own reasons for joining the camps they did - for me, it's not about nostalgia for 'classic machines', it's about running a modern OS based on the principles of AmigaOS which can be used daily and on cheap, readily available hardware, so its has to be the AROS camp.

Maybe you might be surprised, but (nearly) all development for AROS does not even get a thank you.


You're right - as users we probably don't say 'thanks' nealy enough, but the work done by all the developers, maintainers and distro builders in pushing forward the platform is always very much appreciated.

Cheers,
Nigel.

I've just tried the smp build of 7.4.17. All results are the same as previousy (for both the core 2 duo and celeron laptops) aside from the rendering test now completes successfully.

Cheers,
Nigel.

It works OK. :) However it is necessary to read manual :)


I'm glad it works as expected, but yes, it does need a very specific setup, so the manual is a definite must.

Cheers,
Nigel.

You're welcome. It works on my machines, but if you come across any issues, please post them up here.

Cheers,
Nigel.
