Yay I have now managed to get AmiKit fully working on my EEE Pc :)

Here is a guide on how to change the settings for the 800 x 480 screenmode.



1) First download and install amikit http://amikit.amiga.sk/
2) Install roms and operating system with standard installer in 800 x 600 screenmode
3)Close amikit after instalation and the click on the amikit icon then click configure WinUAE then change the values to screenshot to the ones in the pic

save the settings to the winuae config u are using.
4) Load amikit and use fn + f6 to go to windows and use the Asus EEE Pc utility to change windows mode to LCD 800 x 600 (Do this if you need to move the amikit screen about)
5) Open Morpheuz and change the enviroment to Workbench

6) When amikit restarts open "amikit" and then "prefs" and select screenmode

save screenmode and exit
7) Then (still in the prefs folder) select "ShowAmiga96_prefs" convert image to the settings on the picture below and save

8) Restart amikit and play away :D + make sure u have you cd drive plugged in when u load amikit

Now it should look like this:

Very cool!

This is the first I've heard of the Eee PC (pulls head out of sand). I see that it ships with Linux. Your guide looks as though it's using Windows. Did you install windows first or did you use the AmiKit Linux distro?

Thanks,

TJH

You can get versions with XP now, plus a new version on the way that does 1024x800...

Yes, but the new version is more useful.

A lot of websites these days require 1024 wide screens as a minimum. So I welcome the new one. And it's only a little bit bigger because they just made better use of the lid.

I'm looking forward to the new Eee but I think I have to wait about 5 or 6 months before it will be available here at normal prices.

Even more websites don't work with Ibrowse, so this has to be a step up!

the Icons look very big, but remember AFA have ability of realtime icon scale to a fixed size choosable in afa_prefs.This work for OS4 and PNG Icons in high quality and no measurable speedloss

so icons can make smaller for the small eepc display

It's running eeeXubuntu 7.10. It's still clocked down to 630MHz, because I haven't installed the kernel module that lets you clock it back up to 900MHz yet. It runs fine at 630MHz though!

I think Asus got it wrong this time with the new version.

340 for an Asus eeePC? They should have dropped the 20GB SSD disk and offered it at a lower price.

For 340 you can get a better, much faster laptop.

Shame...

It is a little high, but there are many differing factors to the eee vs what else your money will get - form factor, battery life, SSD etc...

OK, so I just got my Eee PC yesterday and would like to install AmiKit. This is the four gig version with the standard Eee PC version of Linux installed. I don"t want to go Windows or even EeeXUbuntu. Is it still possible with the basic setup?
