Week of February 19th:

- Fixed/re-introduced i8259A legacy PIC support (neil)
- Bug fixes that allow ACPI support to be fully disabled when using the 'noacpi' boot option (neil)
- Allow PCI devices to be used again when ACPI is disabled (neil)
- Fixed a memory corruption bug when setting up IRQ routing table information for PCI (neil)
- Added a new boot option, 'noapic' (not to be confused with 'noacpi'), that disables modern APICs in favour of legacy i8259A PICs (e.g. in case APIC support doesn't work well on your PC). 'noapic' and 'noacpi' must be used together to have an effect (neil)
- Fixed a bug in APIC support that led to crashes during boot because the kernel's list of system call handlers was corrupted during IRQ initialisation. This fixes booting with ACPI disabled (neil)

Note that none of these changes will be available in nightly builds for the moment because SourceForge is broken (again!).

Anyone know when aros-exec.org might be coming back online?

Week of February 26th:

- Allow kernel debug output to be captured by Sashimi, Bifteck etc. (neil)
- Fixed a problem with software interrupts that caused stuttering in HDAudio playback when ACPI was enabled (neil)
- Allow CPU to sleep again when no task is running and ACPI is disabled; avoids VMs stealing host CPU time for no reason and saves power when running natively (neil)

Note that none of these changes will be available in nightly builds for the moment because SourceForge is still broken.

Had a question in regards to AROS and Linux on the same hardware. If I wanted to have a machine that had both OSes on it, which would have to be loaded first, or it doesn't really matter as long as I have the space for them both? Thanks.

Ed

@edponpon

You can read about it here.

https://sites.google.com/site/arosaspireone/installation

The guide is little outdated and the part to copy from AROS:boot/ is no longer valid.
It is now it is called AROS:Arch/
I'm not sure it will work at all with latest version of Ubuntu, but maybe someone could
help you if you ask on www.aros-exec.org

Quick answer install Linux first and leave empty space on drive to install AROS later.

Week of March 19th:

- ICU library V60.2 ported for future use with Odyssey (wawa)
- Implemented retrieval and usage of all PCI IRQ routing tables from ACPI (instead of just the one for the root bus). This solves the problem of some devices having incorrect IRQ numbers when ACPI is enabled (e.g. wired and wireless network interfaces on the Acer AspireOne A110 and A150 work again) (neil)

SourceForge is still partly broken, but I've manually uploaded the most recent builds today, so you can try out changes from the last few weeks.

@clebin

Sorry to hear being so sad. Just trying to inspire a Good New potential name.

Well then no Help (again and again) if You are not an Amigan.

Some humour usually intended in the hobby. Someones just don't get it;)

Atari Rehesal Opel Sistema

Edit:

The PRoblem is in the advertising kind of job. Would need a good name for a good PRoduct.

A Bad Thing?

Your comments are completely off topic. Either start a new thread with your own topic or stop polluting this one, or both please. This is the weekly AROS update thread.

thats not true. kalamatee implements better c++11 fp and math support, as people like to say here, behind the scenes. he only seems to need to rely on me testing his sources for compilation, as his hardware is broken. which makes all that painfully slow.

so both of them are worth support certainly.

@wawa

That is very good but as I cleared out "AROS system developer". I just follow the week to week updates and I almost only see Neil there the last months.
There are for sure lot's of important developers for AROS doing software and stuff so it was only to enlighten people about supporting Neil as I don't think that been done here at Amigaworld.

@nikosidis

kalamatee is aros system developer. i have committed something he implemented last week, but probably as it isnt complete, neil didnt mention it. one way or the other, even though there might not be commits at this moment, it doesnt mean work is not being done. kalamatee has been very supportive in my attempt to get newer icu and odyssey compile with aros toolchain without workarounds. it will generally benefit c++ support when ready. i dont know exactly what situation is at his end, but considering circumstances, he is doing a lot.
