hardware OS4   hardware OS4 : Step by Step A1, OS4 and A1/Linux Instructions!
   posted by NoelFuller on 8-Sep-2005 3:09:58 (4547 reads)
Pages relating to the A1, hardware, linux and OS4 with many step by step instructions have just been put officially on line on the Amiga Auckland Website.

http://www.titan.co.nz/amigaak/index.htm


These include setting up dual booting - researched over 40 installs for instance, Sarge upgrade, transfer partitions, Sil boards, and of course OS4 stuff which is still being researched.

You need to look round a bit. For instance after doing an update to Sarge, for details on login you need to go to the About Linux button then Security. For transfer partitions go to the About Linux/Miscellaneous button. While setting up for dual booting on the OS4 side you should also come across instructions for setting up the Amiga transfer partition. Of course we would like feedback, corrections and alternatives.

This site began life as a partial substitute for our BBS but grew as a whole range of useful stuff was added, amiga and non-amiga.

Want to look up a stock exhange or a webcam in the antarctic for instance?

The club has vastly exceeded its alloted size but the IP seems to tolerate us because of the usefulness of the general data.

I've been told there are at least 500 pages but I have seen only about 390 so far! Click on a button and other buttons will usually spring up under it. If not check out the links within a page. One "here" for instance has 291 pages under it, being data on classic amigas gathered at a time when it seemed like useful sites carrying this data were vanishing, just in case.

The huge glossary has been continuously added to for at least 10 years though that was a while before this website started up.

The webmaster, Garran Whitley, has been employed much of his life troubleshooting databases and networks, government systems and stock exchanges. He still has a PET and his A3000 developer machine was used at times to tweak the Sydney stock exchange from home on "callouts".

theres a bar at the top where if you click on something, another bar will appear just underneath it, etc.

click on "Computers" at the top, and then a new bar appears. Click on "AmigaOne", etc. Theres a ton of information on that site.

@elwood

> Do you mean this page? I couldn't find your documentation on the website.

No doubt you have found it now after jahc's advice. It's a low key
presentation I know, originally to help with faster loading on
unaccelerated classic machines. Although I've used it for some years
even I had no idea till recently how much was there.

regards
Noel

One note: the SLB has NO Grub code to load Ext2 or anything else.
The GRUB code lies within UBoot. SLB simply calls it.
That's also why when upgrading, you must upgrade both or bad things will happen.

Brilliant! I'd been to that site before through exploring their wideranging "Glossary of Technology Terms" but had no idea that there was A1 'HowTo's' pages available as well!

Sorry, but I don't think you are right.
AFAIK UBoot doesn't have any code to access the filesystem as it only loads images (for example Linux boot image or the SLB) which then has to include the code to access the filesystem(s).
This is the reason why there where once two different SLB, one with FFS/SFS support, the other with FFS/ext2/3 support (which is now only one SLB).

Ciao, Alfred

Sorry, I know I'm right.
The reason being: I'm the one who wrote the frigging thing (flb & slb).
So I kinda know what I'm talking about.

The old version you mention had Ext2 code in the slb, but it's no longer the case with the new UBoot/slb combo. You can have a look at the "mainstream" UBoot (at SF.net), the Ext2/3 code is there.

This is a very good and very detailed documentation.
Congratulations to the team. You should have spent many hours doing it.

Hey, I'm even mentioned there

bye

Oh, OK, that could be a reason that you know it better (as long as you know what you do )
Apology accepted

Sorry for thinking I knew it better

Amused by your avatar - reminds me of someone...
I know Garran is pleased some people are finding all the work of use.
