Experimental Icaros version with Magellan inside

There is a public work-in-progress version of Icaros Desktop available for download. It will be available just for a while, then it will be deleted, since work is steadily going on and it wouldn't reflect the actual state of the distribution. Applications are not updated, nor new applications are added except one: Directory Opus 5 "Magellan" for AROS x86. Icaros work in progress is for brave people only: this version of the distribution is not based on mainstream AROS nightlies like the ones you're accustomend to, but instead on a more advanced (in many areas) custom version by Deadwood, who's backporting from ABIv1 everything which won't hurt (so much) binary compatibility with current software. This means, in a nutshell, that this work-in-progress version of Icaros Desktop is formally NOT compatible with the mainstream one, and you should NOT mix its files with the ones on your hard drive, NOR try to update your current setup with this one. Why? Because 1) it won't work and 2) I won't help you fixing the mess, since you've been warned. Please dowload it and install on a spare computer, on a new virtual machine, and test it, test it, test it! This version of Icaros Desktop is a benchmark for me, for Deadwood, for BSzili and for everyone involved in the "next Icaros revolution" program which in a few words means: new AROS, new GUI, new Experience. We need to catch and fix bugs, compatibility issues, and everything which might bring problems to users. Remember, it's just a TEST, not something we consider suitable for your daily Icaros fun.

By downloading this, you AGREE you have read all above, and you'll also expected to help us. How? Simple!

> You can download Icaros Desktop 1.5.2 Experimental WIP here:
http://mirrors.lezard-visuel.com/icaros/aros-experimental.iso

If you find a bug, please test it again on your regolar installation and, if you spot differences, don't forget to tell us. Where? Easy.

> You can report bugs and other issues in our little on line bug tracker here:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/cc ... Z1E&usp=sharing#gid=0

DO NOT FORGET!

DO NOT, under ANY circumstance, mix executabiles and other binaries of this version with your regular Icaros 1.5.2 installation, or you'll mess it. Keep the testing environment separed from your "production" one.

DO NOT FILL THIS THREAD WITH BUGS, use the bug tracker instead, it should work also from AROS OWB. Use this thread if you can't access to the online document. HINTS AND SUGGESTIONS are very WELCOME instead.

To enable Magellan as default GUI after installation, please use the "GUI Choice" program in /Prefs, and restart.

Hi!
I Tried to install it in VmWare but i'm not able to go beyond the partition tool.
I put IDE (can't use AHCI), and when i click on next wanderer says:
Partition of Disk Failed.
Console says: ***Could not open root partition! Eror 100.

Anyone succeeded in crashing Magellan yet?

I did... I played with the FTP button (on the right). I choosed Connect and Aminet ont the right button bar thing... repetedly changed between them... Then I got a crash with some adress error...

Thats as close I could tell you, to try to reproduce it... (for the moment).

Otherwise it seems to be nice, a few missing things (but I guess it is not fixed yet) Tried to doubleclick an image file (wallpapers) both png and jpg's... An empty grey windowlike thing displayed...


Really great job...

The ftp.module included with this icaros version is not functional. I just fixed some endianness issues which messed up the PASV and PORT commands.

VMware uses two different kind of virtual controllers to handle hard drives. When creating a new virtual machine you MUST choose "Other" as guest operating system, create a 6+ GB virtual drive and be sure, when calling InstallAROS for the first time, to select both "IDE" as drive type and "Use free space only" like in the attached image.

On a clean boot I can get to a Shell prompt with newer EFI BIOS's (Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3 rev 3001) where as on the previous versions I could only get to the AROS Prompt waiting for a boot device.

The first 2 options on VmWare doesn't work [Only use.... / Wipe disk]. These give the error 100. The third option does work, but doesn't copy all files (incl. boot/grub) to the virtualdisk, so you can't boot [see pic].

It does however work correctly on virtualbox, no errors there & all files correctly installed. So better install aros on vbox for now.
