New WinAROS available

A new version of WinAROS is available.
The virtual Harddisk is contains two partitions.
A 100MB Partition with Fast File System (FFS), that contains only the Boot Files.
And a 400MB Partition with Smart File System (SFS) that contains a fresh AROS setup.

This WinAros Version comes with a complete C/C++ Compiler Setup and Murks!-IDE.
If you want to Install extras Apps, you can use

WinArosStart



WinAros comes with a Windows typical setup program, that creates shortcuts on the desktop
and in the start menu.
It also comes with an uninstaller.

I'll download and test.

Update;
WinAROS works fast, I have a quick play on Murk IDE. Needs an easy way to transfer files from host OS to client OS e.g. transfer some MP3 and BSD licenced cpp files.

@Heinz

Thanks, works very well here!
I though something was borked but the problem was that the language in the system was German so my Y and Z-keys was changed which was pretty amusing ;)

Is there a easy way w/o network to pull out some files from the disk images btw. ?

You can use WinArosStart to transfer files from windows to Aros.

There is a good Networking Documentation on the Aros Homepage

If you just want to transfer files from Aros to windows, take a look at Read AFS

It will not work with the Diskimage delivered with this WinAros Version, but with this one.

Rename it to WinArosHD2.img.
You can mount it in qemu by adding -hdb WinArosHD2.img in the WinArosx86.bat file.

Thanks a lot for your efforts!

I have downloaded and tried it a minute ago.

It works *slow* on my following configuration:

- Athlon 64 X2 3800+
- 2GB RAM
- Windows XP Home Edition

I read that the windows port is at alpha stage. Is this speed normal?

WinAROS is not a Windows port of AROS. It is native AROS running in an emulated PC. Of course it is slow as a complete PC have to be emulated. If you want to see the real speed of AROS, boot your PC with the Live-CD

@guvenck

I didn´t tried WinAros but I installed the VMWareAROS and it is really fast even on my Athlon XP 2200 with 1GB ram in my XP system. I presume that WinAROS is more or less similar in speed and if in your PC works slow I think that something must be wrong in your computer configuration.

@Heinz
Great, thanks for the information on that!


@emavys
For me WinAros (which uses QEMU) is a lot faster than WMWareAROS which is a lot more jerky on my systems. I dunno if the QEMU-accelerator do some magic compare to other emulators but the difference is a lot.

Running the Linux-host version is damn much faster than any of the above and I think native installation wouldn't be less effective though.
