So is it 8168 or 8169? It's just that in your earlier post you mentioned 8169. I tired both 8168 and 8169 drivers with my new harware and whilst the 8168 did lock up the machine the 8169 worked fine.


Sorry, my mistake. It's definitely 8168.

Initially I thought it was 8169 as that driver actually worked better, as in it would function for a while before eventually locking up.

Also although I didn't try the elimination tests, my 8139 seems to have the same issues. I have a couple of revisions of this card so I'll do some more testing with them.

Just done some more testing, here are the results:

Realtek 8138A = OK
Realtek 8139C = OK
Realtek 8168 = FORGET IT!

Motherboards used for testing:

Gigabyte GA-G41MT-D3 = Good (except onboard RTL 8168)

ASRock Z68 Extreme 3 Gen 3 = OK. Again onboard 8168, but may also freeze occasionally from unrelated cause (hence why I suspected the 8139 earlier).

In conclusion, I now have the recipe for a stable AROS system again so all is well. Thanks again for your help and hopefully this info is useful. Certainly, it looks like we'd be better off without the 8168 driver at the moment as it's in an unhappy state.

Indeed. rtl8168.device should be removed or moved to the Storage dir.


Done moving. Next Icaros won't have it in DEVS.

Thanks for this!

Also, I have questions :
- is there a way to get the arosbootstrap window run in full screen mode ?


This depends on your window manager. In KDE it's possible to set window attributes for specific programs (eg, open fullscreen on desktop 2, screen 1), but other DE's may not be so flexible. It may also be possible to run it from the command line with a fullscreen parameter.


Thanx for the answers, m8. I forgot about this command line option. I'll try this fast and make some update on my article.
Cheers !

First update to Icaros Desktop 2.2 is now available on Icaros website! This is a bugfix release which does not add new features or programs to the distribution, but it refreshes AROS system files and corrects many bugs reported here on AROS-EXEC (and elsewhere...).

These include:

- removed duplicated FinalWriter demo from Utilities
- removed duplicated MESA demos from Extras/Demos
- removed other duplicated files here and there
- replaced make with AROS one, now it should find makefiles as expected
- Aminet's version of make moved to Storage
- replaced ata.device with better working one
- replaced most AROS system files with newer components
- added alternative ATA device to advanced boot options
- removed faulty rtl8168 network device
- updated AROS 68K ROMs for playing games and demos
- started updating italian catalogs, starting with Wanderer menus

I have Icaros 2.2 (without the update) and I got to random freezes. I found that is cause by 3D graphics card, if I load vga driver the system is more much stable.

Do you have a nvidia graphic card ?

1. Freezes that never happened before? This is strange.

2. This is normal. From now on, I decided to show just the main and point release, not the update level. Have a look at envarc:icaros/CURRENT_INSTALL for the versioning. After the update, it should tell 2.002001.

On version 2.2.0 I forgot to update it as well, and that's why the update pack to 2.2.1 is available for both 2.2 Xmas Edition and 2.2 official release.

Tried to install 2.2.1 on my Thinkpad (that used to work without problems since ages with all previous versions (VESA mode)) and I get a black screen when the booting process ends (at least the cd stop running).
I tried all the options of the grub menu without success. The VGA option gives a messed screen
