Actually, this is the way the installation document suggests.

If you can, attach a serial terminal. It should output the crash info to the serial port as well.

@Toaks

Well it's gone now anyway. If I feel like it I might have a terminal open 24/365 to catch a random crash.

(Or hyperion could implement storing the log automatically on the drive instead of me having to have a terminal running all year long.)

Main improvements can be noticed in Network (now SMBFS is a local drive..) and IDE transfer (for me that i fix my a1!). There are so many things that it is difficult to write them all.. A fantstic utility is UBoot in the Prefs that allow to modify all Uboot parameters from the WB..
mmm.. Unarc... FAAAAAAASTTTTTTT (finally..)

From: going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.

Cool!

Something to tinker with tonight, methinks.

Thanks guys! Now that we'll all be content for a week or two before the "Update #4" threads start popping up, you should reward yourselves with going outside and catching a glimpse of the sun.



Full speed on CD-transfers I gather, yay! Might as well get back to converting my CD-collection to MP3's then..

Now, with this update, will there be a big green button that makes the computer walk over to my cd-rack and then physically changes the cd's in the drives, or will I still have to move my ass halfway across the room and do it myself as with the second update?

Something like that was planned, and might still come. The critical point is to avoid invalidating the harddisk in case of a severe crash, which would mean you have a circular file buffer that never grows...

@AmigaPapst

Hehe, you're West, I'm East, maybe there'll be a union of the Churches all because of two Amigans


And yes, they were the best days!

But, back to the OS4 update for now

[EDIT] Oh, others already answered to this, I was a bit slow

You could hook another computer to serial port as a terminal, and use it to watch/save Grimreaper logs. Then you might be able to save the log even if input.device crashes.

You can actually re-route the debug console from serial output to a circular memory buffer. Have a look at the documentation for KDebug and DumpDebugBuffer

There won't be an update 4. This is the last before release.

These versions don't include hardware renderers. You can use, them, of course, they just won't be accelerated.

I can't say when updates will be available.
