I knever knew about the prevalent Wanderer issue while installing AROS natively? But it is good to see a smooth automated installer with AROS. I don't have experience install AROS natively, from what I have heard about it, it is definitely a step up. And will defintely get more people to more easily install AROS on their computers, which can right now only be a good thing.

So it is great to see developers who do an incredible job guiding people through the process, and even showing how to avoid what can become pitfalls. This shows that, even though some may attest to AROS not being a true AmigaOS, it still shows promise of becoming a great DOS based open source operating system.

Most importantly, this article gave me a step by step instruction on how to install AROS natively, in a relative sense.

What filesystem did it use natively?
I'm willing to do it once it can do NTFS or SFS or something inherently better and faster than FFS...

Woohoo! ...a working installer for AROS! Now if we could only get more development tools that would run and be able to compile on AROS natively, we'd be rocking!

Thanks for the link and the update!

It uses FFS natively.

FFS is what has been holding me back. I'm not a fan of multiple partitions on a hard drive. I don't want a slow System partition.

Is FFS2 locked up inside OS4 only?

GRUB needs to support more filesystems natively.
