Poseidon is now found inside the AROS nightly builds. It still needs testing and bug hunting so those brave enough can download the latest nightly and start testing. There is a thread at AROS-EXEC that you can post your test results into. Don't forget to post detailed Info about the hardware you tried it on and what kind of USB controller it has.

Poseidon for AROS has now entered official testing phase. If you are interested in helping out, please download the latest nightly build:

http://aros.sourceforge.net/download.php

The instructions for starting Poseidon can be found here:

http://aros-exec.org/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?post_id=29529#forumpost29529

Please report your results here:

http://aros-exec.org/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?post_id=30479#forumpost30479

Please include discription of USB controller (OHCI/UHCI/EHCI) you have and USB hardware you were testing.

For people interested in trying Poseidon on Aros:
Paolone has released a "unofficial" update to Icaros 1.1.2. This update which is
a downloadble ISO, contains the Poseidon USB Stack and can be installed using
LiveUpdater feature in Icaros. Read more on the Icaros Desktop Website

We need as many pioneers as possible to test this now, while Chris is working on it
so that we find every possible bug in either Aros or Poseidon.

If you don't have the Icaros 1.1.2. distribution installed you can also use one of the latest
AROS nightly builds to live boot and test without installing anything.

@Manu

What stack does AROS have now? (Or then.)

I tested USB on a friends AROS machine but the whole thing just froze whenever a USB device was plugged in. Have to encourage him to make a report. The CD driver also made all files blank but that might be his IDE setup.

@Hypex

When you start AROS you get no stack at all. You have either to run older Michal's stack, or newer Poseidon port by Chris. On Icaros up to 1.1.2 you get Michal's one loaded by default only if you have a OHCI controller. But I encourage people to download my little update and try it. Icaros gives many instruments to communicate and transfer files outside of the AROS computer with ease.

With the newer stack, there are good chances your USB devices will work under AROS. Currently there are many little issues that have to be ironed out: one thing is writing a USB stack for a couple of controllers, a completely different one is writing a universal stack that will work out of the box with hundreds of different models. That's why I encourage brave people to do tests and bug reporting. The community can be as helpful in this stage, as it has been in the former days with their money support.

For istance, I discovered that on my main AROS computer USB devices work only if "USB legacy support" option in BIOS is disabled, and USB 1.1 devices start working only after I have plugged in a Xbox 360 microsoft controller (USB 2.0 ones work immediately). I suspect there is something that gets 'unlocked' as soon as I plug that particular device. Now the tricky part will be discovering what this lock is.

But it is with dozens of reports like mine, that Poseidon will work on EVERY computer. Please help us.

Thanks for the info. My friend was running the older build. But he did want to upgrade it. Can USB freeze if no stack is loaded?

I thought USB chipsets were universal and all were programmed the same? According to some people here they all follow the same standard and protocols. I tested this theory by plugging an NEC chipset PCI USB card into my A1 and it was detected and working straight away!

All devices *should* follow the specification and they *should* work... but you won't know it for sure until you try :)

@Templario

If everything goes well, the sources of Poseidon should be available within one week. If then someone creates a bounty to port them to AmigaOS I will happilly add some money. The only condition (for my donation) I have is that the bounty should be about porting and keeping the same source code base and not forking/closing/making incompatible version.

Yes, I think as you, but if we donate in one open bounty for Amiga, I think that it must be for all systems specially when the bounty ask money for OS 4.x users, because this bounty was open to all not only to AROS users.

I don't have OS4 and I am not the one asking for ports either.

@Templario

I don't get all your fuse, AmigaOS4 has different USB stack, and its going to get USB2.0 support sooner or later, mean while most USB2.0 devices are backward compatible whit USB1.1, so its not a problem.
