Software News   Software News : AmiKit for Linux platforms released
   posted by AmiKit on 20-Mar-2008 17:30:48 (2242 reads)
We're very pleased to announce that the native Linux port of AmiKit is now available for download so the Linux users can experience the high-end AmiKit system too.

We would like to especially thank to Tom Newsom and Daniel Westerberg, this would not happen without their help! For those who are interested there's an article describing this history of the process of creating and debugging a working port of AmiKit to Linux.

What is AmiKit? It's a free and legal compilation of more than 300 of the finest Amiga programs running under emulation (Windows and Linux).

Free download: http://amikit.amiga.sk/

I must thank Tom Newsom for all the time and testing he put in this, and especially the LiveUpdate, which as the author I am, baffled me completely with all various wierd and wierder error messages it kept spewing out when run in E-UAE instead of WinUAE (or any hardware Amiga for that matter).

Thankyou!

A few minor bugs have been discovered in the archive. The easy fix is described here.

If you experience more issues or if you have any questions regarding AmiKit running on Linux, please use the newly created Linux area at AmiKit forums.
