It used to be in System:Tools/debug/
But that folder is gone.

Thank you for the info.

Hope we can track the error. As said everything works good with AROS abi v.1 32-bit so this is some 64-bit error.

Thank you wawa. If you can compile install aros I could always test it. Be sure to not confuse installer and install aros. It is two different things.

Where is sashimi by the way?

wawa: That is not right. Sure developers can not use lot's of time fixing something for some specific hardware when it works elsewhere. This is why you need beta testers.
If 1 say it is not working and 3 say it is working then it is difficult or if something is not working that never was working. Then I agree with you.
If something elemetary got broken like installing AROS it needs to be fixed. If not AROS is useless. The faster this kind of problems get noticed the more easy it is for a system developer to go back and see what got broken.

I don't compile aros either. Just download the night build. Burn the ISO to optical disk.
Boot the disk. After booted you have to create AROS partitions on some kind of storage device if you like to use it serious to save and delete stuff etc.
The creation of partitions must be done inside AROS and that works fine. Can not use FAT or NTFS file system with AROS. Has to be FFS or SFS for system.
Problem is after the partitions are created AROS don't like to install the system to it. The installer simply does not open. Something is blocking it.

Nothing need to be paused. If a version (a given night build) is choosen by me for AspireOS that is what it is until I decide to update it to a later night build.
This version could then be used by developers who compile programs etc. and it would not be incompatible with whatever happends with night builds.

Partly why this is needed is cause noone does beta test anything by now and lots are broken. This I know from history with abi v.0.
Just as you might notice in another thread AROS abi v.1 64 does not install to usb-drive but it works good with abi v.1 32-bit.
In Abi v.1 32-bit (not been able to test with 64-bit) wi-fi is not working and the same with IntelGMA 3D.
Every time I took some time away from AROS and came back lots where broken and I needed to report to developers like Neil and Deadwood to get it fixed.
I'm not a developer but as important is there to people to beta test and report back to developers if we like something usefull. Most developers does not use AROS native. They develop with Linux with AROS hosted.

any driver development is mostly welcome. I would like to see more supported intelGMA chips. Would make it more easy to find some native gfx laptop hardware.
Regarding wi-fi it is quite easy as the supported Atheros wi-fi card is easy and cheap to find on e-bay. With most laptops it is just a matter of open a slot on the back of it, take out the old one and replace it.

Stephen: We should go to China and find some fully supported cheap AROS laptop we could sell :D

At startup you could choose AROS or Linux. Within Linux it would also be set up for AROS hosted.

Would make a good development platform + a fully supported platform where AROS is fully working.

I can not stand VESA gfx.

We kind of have ACER aspire one, but it is getting way outdated. We need something that can have higher resolution + a bit more powerfull CPU and GPU and 64-bit ready.
Does not need to be something very advanced hardware vise.
Important to keep the price low.
I guess fully supported AROS laptop 12 inch, some Atom cpu with intel gpu would be more than good enough.
Atheros wi-fi card should be easy to get hold on to install without doing a new wi-fi driver.

Show this piece of hardware with the new janus-uae running some classic 68k out of the box and it could sell well if the price is right. I'm thinking around 300£ would be perfect. The profit if any would go back to AROS development.

The way I see it. It is a matter of getting hold on some no brand Intel Atom based laptops from china and find someone to do the driver for the gpu. Get some stickers with AROS and install everything in it and there you have it ready to be sent all over the world ;)

wawa: That is not so easy on real hardware.

I tried other laptop now. Kind of same problem.
I open the installer and format the usb-drive. Reboots and when I try to open the installer it does not start or open a window. I took out the usb-drive and then the installer open but if I insert the usb-drive again it is not recognized but the installer. I tried another thing. Since I created the AROS partitions I wanted to try to format them but that was just blocked when I hit the procceed format button. AROS did not crash but the format window got stuck and could not do anything.

All this worked fine with AROS abi v.1 32-bit

Neil: You there ;)

Users dont want to bother with a lot of conserns about extra installs of programs and inn many cases not working programs. My Job is just to remove stuff and add what is working and make it presentable. Simple but usefull. I'm just trying to help out with whatever I can do. It is not many that know Aros better than me. Nagative shit bring it elsewhere. Dont need it here or anywhere for that sake.
