software AROS   software AROS : 2nd patch for Icaros Desktop: startup sound & easy config
   posted by paolone on 23-Aug-2012 20:48:11 (1608 reads)
A new patch for Icaros Desktop 1.4.5 is available for download on www.icarosdesktop.org This update refreshes system files to 20th of August, introduces a system startup jingle, and adds the ability to backup and restore system settings with a single utility, FastConfig. There is also a little request to the community...

Read more...


FastConfig can create archives of setting files from Envarc:, making configuration of AROS quite more simple. It's enough to follow a few steps to create a 'template' for a computer model and, afterwards, apply it to the same units. For instance, when FastConfig creates a 'hardware config pack' for the ACER AspireOne A150, any other AspireOne A150 can load the same settings and have network and audio instantly configured. Moreover, FastConfig backups the whole Env-Archive drawer for personal uses and customize hardware backups with user-selected files.

We ask the community for a little effort. Every one who can install AROS on real hardware and has a supported system, would make a great gift to everyone else by creating a simple 'hardware' backup with FastConfig. A simple and quick how-to in PDF format will be added by the patch to the Icaros documentation.

Will the info from the configuration utility have all the information you need or do we need to include detailed info about the motherboard, video, etc. I know my system has worked well with Icaros.

For branded computer models (read documentation) brand name and model number are already asked by FastConfig, nothing else is needed. However, even people with self-assembled computer can contribute. The only requisite is that naming of produced archive follows our guideline, using the motherboard brand and model instead of computer's.

For instance: a so-made PC with

ASUS A78 board
SBLive PCI card

can produce an archive called

ASUS_A78+SBLive.zip

why not?

Will the nVidia drivers be updated soon? I ask because 3D games, namely Assault Cube and Cube 3D are completely unplayable on two of my systems. The graphics are almost completely corrupt.

One system is a Dell Inspiron E1705 with an nVidia 7900GS gpu. The other system is a Dell Latitude D800 with a GTX5700 mobile. The only system that plays them correctly is my Dell Latitude D630 with an NVS135M gpu.
