Hey,

I am curious. AROS x86 have the latest version of OWB I believe it to be 1.25 right? Is it possible this version of OWB can be ported to AROS 68k with all the functionality working on 68k AROS?

Thanks in advance.

First thing that comes to mind is the fact it's a BE byte ordering CPU. I'm not exactly sure of the status at the moment with the WebKit sources, but at that time this was an influence (rather than outright problem) in usage on these architectures, especially with some js heavy sites.

Other's will know more, but I suspect there could also be some dependencies missing too for 68k. A lot of the tools and librarie required are available, but are they recent enough?

Also, and a quick sidebar, but is there a guide for building Odyssey? (For x86 abi0)? I'd like to play with it, but I want to get it building before I mess with it.

also it is barely expectable that odysseys requirements will fit 68k target. speedwise as much as memorywise. it might be an experiment though getting it to run in uae.

That is what I am saying. There is no harm giving it full focus and energy to get it to work in WinUAE.

What do you guys think?
