Well done!
Long time since I tried AROS. But recently I installed it on my Samsung netbook and everything simply just works :)
Maybe I will take up programming again, after I have played through some of the games ;)
Thanks!

Hi Xelec,
Could I just ask, is that using the intelGMA graphics driver?

Thanks,
Nigel.

This sound great!

Is everything working, like wifi networking, graphics driver, sound and so on?

If so, the Samsung n145Pro is realy intresting for me!

Sound and graphics works fine, using VESA at the moment. Sorry to say, but no networking :(

Have you tried the GMA driver? With the FORCEGMA tooltype?

Hi all.
I decided to try get a Samsung n145p as a replacement for my dead PicoITX - here's what I've found:

The Samsung boots with no issues from a CD of the nightly from 19.9.11 connected via USB (BIOS is already set for USB optical to boot before internal hard drive). Selecting native graphics driver boots into IntelGMA graphics on the LCD with no need for forcegma. Changing screen resolutions works fine in both 16 and 32 bit modes (LCD screen dimensions are 1200 x 600). Screen brightness can be chaged via the keyboard function keys. One issue is that there is no analog output from the vga port either in IntelGMA or Vesa mode and no option in the bios to enable it that way. When booting the pre-installed Windows 7 this port is active.

Keyboard and touchpad both fine including tap-to-click on the touchpad.

Sound works fine including the headphone jack working as expected (i.e. works and cuts off internal speakers). I'm having to 'wake up' the audio from AHI prefs before getting audio from e.g. mplayer, but I guess that can probably be fixed when I properly install with the 'query' directive in the config file. I haven't tried recording yet.

All USB ports fine and the SD card reader on the front functions too (it's recognised as a usb device).

As noted, the ethernet and onboard wireless networking are not supported.

I haven't tried installing to the internal hard drive (250 GB) as I want a dual boot system which means shrinking the Windows partitions, and I'm trying to get the backup software to save off Windows 7 before I try that (no Windows disk is provided with the machine, just a recovery disk). So far the backup has failed miserably to write to DVD or external hard drive, which is consisten with my previous experiences of trying to backup Windows. One more waisted evening on this and I'm just going to nuke Windows and have it purely as an AROS machine.

A lot of online reviews bemoan the slowness of this machine under Windows, but under AROS everything is nice and nippy. Mplayer plays a DVD perfectly, and for as test I started off a second DVD at the same time which ran with hardly noticeable frame skip. Janus feels as fast as on my AresOne.

I hope this information is useful for anyone else considering this machine,

Nigel.
