Software News   Software News : AmigaSYS 3 Plus Pocket PC , Amithlon , Page Update , and AmigaSYS 3 year!
   posted by Dary on 5-Nov-2007 3:09:46 (3467 reads)
It's the third anniversary since AmigaSYS first appeared!
AmigaSYS 3 Plus Pocket PC PDA and Amithlon beta pictures, with page upgrade!



I would like to begin by sending a huge thank you to all of those who have aided me in my work, since AmigaSYS 3's first year. I'm very proud of what I have accomplished. :)

Is this the first picture of an Amiga PDA ? Almost? So it would appear, however, this is our AmigaSYS Pocket PC PDA version; the pictures of our first beta!

Read more!


The test: single Asus MyPal A620 400 Mhz PDA. Original AmigaSYS with settings; the boot took a very long time (nearly 4 minutes), the system had a flat background for this, and so more modifications took place.



In this present state : 400 Mhz, the boot time reduced to 1:40. After boot , all Workbench applications were totally and completely usable.



-------
Amithlon beta screenshots!

Currently under testing is an Amithlon version based on the WinUAE version. Amithlon basis OS 3.9 setup is necessary, first version does not require additional files (USB, Net, etc..) Anyone who has an additional required applications will need to install it themselves. Basic Kernel is tested; setup and the themes work. There is no pre-set resolution; in this basic version, the pictures have 256 colours. Therefore, it will be necessary to select your own resolution at the end of setup.



...

AmigaSYS 3 Plus web upgrade.
They are modifications on the web page , the old information have been rewritten in some places , there are better setup descriptions, plans , and much somebody else...

...

Old slogen :
AmigaSYS is a pre-installed Amiga Operation System pack for WinUAE and for High performance Amiga Computers.

New slogen :
AmigaSYS is a pre-installed Amiga Operation System. Supported platforms: WinUAE emulator, real Amiga computers (68020-68060) , Amithlon, AmigaOs4/MorphOs/Linux/Macintosh E-UAE emulator, XBOX, and POCKET PC PDA.

I am asking that you use the new slogan, not the old one! Thank you.

Further development of AmigaSYS depends strongly upon donation.
Please support AmigaSYS; use PayPal or classic payment.

Does it mean it contains the Amiga Operating System files now? The ADFs or original AmigaOS CD is not required anymore?

An AmigaSYS news thread every week...

If I'm not mistaken AmigaSYS runs on all listed platforms (AmigaOS4, MorphOS, Linux, Macintosh, Xbox, PocketPC) under E-UAE.
So the "New slogen" should be something like this: AmigaSYS is a pre-installed AmigaOS distribution. Supported platforms: WinUAE, E-UAE, real Amiga computers. AmigaSYS requires the original AmigaOS install disks/CDs.

The term "AmigaOS distribution" would still imply the Operating System is distributed as well.

Well, that's true. In that case it would need to be described like a "collection of free/shareware programs which can be installed with the original AmigaOS disks and will turn your system into a complete pre-configured AmigaOS system". Or whatever :)

Was nobody's problem with this information , he is indicated on more place on the web page :

AmigaSYS is completely free , but you will need to have an original Commodore or Amiga Forever Kickstart ROM, Workbench and Extras disks to install it.

That let everybody be satisfied he was rewritten :

New slogen :

AmigaSYS is a collection of free/shareware programs which can be installed with the original AmigaOS disks and will turn your system into a complete pre-configured AmigaOS system. AmigaSYS supports the following platforms: WinUAE, E-UAE (AmigaOS4, MorphOS, Linux, MacOS), Amithlon, XBOX, PocketPC and real Amiga computers.

I have to setup a new Amithlon box soon. AmigaSYS for it will save me a lot of time. It would be fine if you integrated all those additional packages for USB, additional drivers and the like that endusers just have a three step setup: first to install the basic system, second to upgrade to AmigaSYS and third to insert a thumbdrive with their keyfiles and AmigaSYS for Amithlon is completed.
Will you offer predefined monitor resolutions? It is very difficult to set them up manually if you go for higher resolutions and widescreen modes so it would be a great improvement to have many of them predefined.

What you say would be good , but unfortunately this would be very heavy to carry out , much the supported and the unsupported hardware. AmigaSYS nothing will imply a pre-set configuration. After setup single AmigaSYS setupot it is necessary to initiate what positions himself the system , and gets it what kind of resolutions you can write to make a choice. If the video card is unsupported then only basis you know a resolution , than you have to install a separate driving program here at similar systems. (Kernel GFX USB NET etc).

I would like to make changes in this later of course , with inbuilt driving programs , etc, depends on it how large an interest will be.

Currently according to me because of that good, everybody dared it installs what he needs. (drivers)

I understand that this is a lot of work and cannot be done by a fingersnip. What I realized is that it is difficult to find drivers that work together. Some combinations allow to run USB but not networking, others have networking but no sound and so on. I hoped someone who has found a working configuration for all important components to release this as kind of snapshot for others. But again, due to the diversity of hardware components this is not possible, sadly. Anyway, I am very much interested in your new version. Hope to test it soon.

He is this situation really unfortunately. My present configuration altogether not compatible , I test it on somebody else machine what is compatible . I said it because of this himself accomplishing the pre-set options very much heavy. That may be I solve it , but an hardware what is not compatible, and an other what is a yes , it is not possible to set this up with 1 machine shortly. Very much the variation and the compatible and the not compatible hardware.

Possibly in the first version not , but this takes shape in the later ones, feedbacks, proposals , etc..

I put something else into it with pleasure the basis into a version, if somebody comes up with a proposal like that what is good certainly and works (net,usb etc,etc), but I cannot guarantee that I can test everything.

During the installer one could run a PCItool to check which hardware gets identified and generate a report for this. This report file allows to install the proper modules for every machine. Heck, why didn't I do this before? It's so obvious.

I don't understand your question but I explain it once more. The update packages and driver archives come with a lot of driver modules that can be installed by insmod. In advance, you don't know which modules have to be installed for a certain machine¹. To solve this you can run pciscan that came with one of the update packages by Bernie which detects the PCI devices built into your computer. All the other PCItools are GUI-driven and therefore not good for automation. You simply get a list by pciscan, a text output. By that list the installer can decide which additional drivers have to be installed to get network, sound, graphics running in case they are not supported by the already installed Amithlon kernel.

¹ Well, yes, you simply can install every Linux kernel module driver of the whole package but this is exactly what caused problems to me many times in correlation with native AmigaOS drivers when I did that years ago.
