Software News   Software News : WinAros Light available
   posted by Heinz on 28-Mar-2006 13:10:56 (1984 reads)
WinArosLight is a preinstalled AROS on a HD image, that runs under Windows using QEmu.
WinAros Light targets developers, using AmiDevCpp to develop AROS programs.

WinArosLight in combination with a program like ultraiso is a nice test environment for those programs.


WinArosLight uses the latest AROS snapshot.

That's a really good idea. And being a virtual environment it really does work straight out of the box. Cheers. Might even inspire me to tackle some Aros development

Surely it would be better to just post a regular zip or other archive, rather than a self-extracting one? I just ran it in WINE only to find it is not a fully compiled program, just an executable zip. For people on other systems who want to run this on QEmu/KQemu it is quite off-putting

@Warbo

If you've got Linux then you'd probably be better off with the version of AROS that runs directly as a Linux process - I haven't used it myself, but given that it doesn't require any emulation I'd have thought that it'd be quicker.

This is great!
It works like a dream in 800x600 on my Stinkpad T20.

I'm not used to AROS on windows - how do the virtual drives work - can you set them up like with UAE?
Is there a quick 'hello world' overview tutorial anywhere for this build?

This is not AROS for windows, it's AROS native running under an emulator. You can't set up any virtual drives in the sense that you make windows directories appear as AROS drives, as AROS knows nothing about Windows. Of course you can use hard disk images: for this, you should refer to the Qemu documentation.

O.K.
I played around with it some more.

This is a really slick system - fantastic effort! I will play with it for quite a while!
