@wawa

So far, your prediction has been 100% accurate.

btw, jason, as far i observed, deadwood has not yet commited owb sources into aros depo, im not sure if this is going to happen or what the agreement with fab is, but apparently nothing prevents 68k compile except perhaps missing dependencies (cairo?). im not insisting as there are other tasks, but could you give it a try?

@franko& other blizzard owners

here what ive just received from toni what concerns aros bootstrap on blizzard :

One more update, now ForceFast option forces complete rom image to fast
ram. Only works with some boards, for example Blizzard 1260.



what concerns support its best to contact toni wilen via eab.abime.net or mail from wiuae homepage, i dont think he has an account here. zerohero, sorry, nothing personal.

Cheers for that Wawa & Toni...

I take it that the latest "nightly download" is where I can find this version !!!

Going to have to dig them miggies out again and give it another go, hopefully it'll work a bit better this time and leave enough chip ram to actually be able to runs things and put it through it's paces...

@all_who_follow_to_icon_rescaling_developing

Is rescaling controled via wandarer options ? I.e. can we set as on os4 lets say "size are: 64x64" and so, every icon will fits to need it size, and they can be and small, and big, just as users wish ? Or currently only functionaly added, not visual prefs for ?

@kas1e
i dont think this is currently already implemented, the feature is not complete. perhaps you could talk to jason directly about your suggestions or open a dedicated thread on aros exec.

i think icon scaling still isnt acting as it should, but mapping kickstart on blizzard might:

sound like blizzard boards should be detected by default, or use forcefast option.

for simplicity sake i copy some of tonis commit comments as how to use the updated bootstrap code on real hardware:
Quote:


Support non-MEMF_KICK fast ram boards (Blizzard A1200 accelerators) in arosbootstrap mode. Requires also updated arosbootstrap version. Most of the rom image loads to fast RAM now.

[...] defaults to plain non-MEMF_KICK Fast RAM if available. Replaced with ForceCHIP that forces all modules to chip RAM. Mainly for debugging.

Only kernel.resource, exec.library, expansion.library and diag init modules require MEMF_LOCAL RAM (RAM that never disappears during reset), in worst case it means Chip RAM. (Requires only about 80k, will become smaller in future)

ForceFAST option is back. Now forces complete ROM image to fast RAM, even if RAM type is not MEMF_LOCAL. (A3000/A4000 mainboard fast is most common MEMF_LOCAL Fast RAM). This only works with some non-autoconfig RAM expansions, one example is Blizzard 1260 Fast RAM. ForceFast also puts supervisor stack in fast ram. Also detects Blizzard A1200 accelerators and automatically enables forcefast for best performance.

would be interesting if someone might check, if the current bootstrap process is still working on a4k series of machines both with oroginal cpu boards and accels. beware that csppc will likely still not be able to boot from its wide scsi. im without any amiga hardware here.

just in case, anyone was still interested.

aros68k boots now from cybppc.device (wide scsi) on csppc. likely it will also boot on blizzardppc.
the icons are scalable, on my machine it cold boots form power on to full wanderer in less than a minute. so whoever wants to check it out might have look again now.
