Announcement   Announcement : AROS meets Linux = AEROS
   posted by phoenixkonsole on 11-Jul-2012 20:37:14 (6509 reads)
Tadaaaa!!! No.. this is not Jokers pencil trick ; )

In roughly 3 hours you can download the first public release of AEROS.

Read more...




What is AEROS?
AEROS is a hybrid distribution of AROS (www.aros.org) and Unix (in the moment debian 6.0 is used) available for ARM and x86 systems.

Why?
AROS is a wonderful OS (an opensource reimplementation of the classic Amiga OS). This means it is fast, and not only because of the small footprint it is very fast.
Many times faster than Linux with all its „lightweight“ desktops.

But why running on OS hosted on another? Doesn’t it slow down?
No! AROS hosted (here in form of AROS Broadway) uses less resources than any desktop manager for linux offering the same functionality.
So in fact it is faster. Especially on slow ARM systems AROS hosted will blow your mind.

What are the Benefits?

Benefits for AROS users of having Linux under the hood:
- more drivers (printers, scanners, NIC, Videocards and more
- you are able to run every Linux app including Wine (which enables the use of Windows (TM) apps without the need of Windows(TM))
- AROS - Developers can use Linux development tools
- AROS apps can utilize Linux tools to enhance there own functionalitiy.
- Single AROS processes can be forced to run on a single core.

Benefits for Linux users of having AROS on top Linux
- Fast desktop, maybe the fastest on LInux
- Allows you to run AROS apps and games too, most of them come from Amiga and have a low footprint. You will like how fast they are.
- Allows you to use JanusUAE - an integrated Amiga emulation... classic 68k Amiga apps can be used in coherency mode


PS: Don’t worry ... TUX is smiling.. so he likes it ; )

Ah.. maybe I should make clear that ARM version differs a lot from x86 : )

Is it a live-cd too or just for the installation?

Live CD. But in livemode it is running only in 800x600 because it is the lowest common denominator.

You can run the installer with double click on the icon on wanderer.

Shouldn't it be called AROX?

Allows you to run AROS apps and games too, most of them come from Amiga

Oh, really?

GREAT! I will try this!

btw:
This seems to have a lot more "Commodore" in it than any C=USA offering so far.
AEROS implements the AmigaOS API developed by the real CBM.

Hmmm!

I only get a totally blank OpenBox screen with the liveCD (also with failsafe mode). I can access the menus and run programs but its not very exciting.

If I exit this I am given the choice of logging back into one of the other Desktops but it needs a user name and password (which don't appear tohave been provided)?)

If I try to install to a HDD, nothing happens?

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks,

TrevorD

EDIT: Update - just read the installation instructions - it seems the iso is only a Demo and only works properly on a Ares One PC. Good job I have one! Anyway fired up and running as a live CD. Obviously the 800x600 screen does not look to good on a 1980x1050 monitor. Interesting concept though. I've also just noticed about the installation from Wandered. I would prefer to install it on another PC and not overwrite my Icaros Desktop installation. I'll see if it will install with VirtualBox.

Update 2: The iso dosen't appear to like either VirtualBox under Linux or VMWare under Windows so am not able to install to get a real feel for the software. Black openbox type screen in both cases. Linux programs accessible but....

Let me explain English sarcasm

Have to say that this is a great way of bringing new users to the Amiga family so well done Pascal.

Hi Trevor,

please give your "virtual PC" at least 640MB RAM, better 1024.
AROS gets 512MB assigned. So with less it won't boot from CD.
Linux needs a bit too. So 640MB should work.

I made the video on virtuabox. So it must work.
The livemode is just to run the installer..

Please watch the how to install video and have a look at the FAQ.

EDIT: Create in Virtuabox a new "debian" system.
This way you can add the guest additions automatically via VB gui.

This is a disaster. It is running well on my Raspberry Pi and I have already wasted hours poking around with it. It seems much more responsive than the other window managers on the Raspi.

Just in case you are stuck;

ID: pi
Password: raspberry

sudo passwd

Enter password raspberry

I promise to return to Raspbian later today after I have got a full screen and overclocking in AEROS. I might waste a little more time getting a higher res screen in AEROS.

This is a great bit of work and I will be using it as my AROS playpen.

Regards
Roy Leith

@maz77
Yes, LInux apps have full access to all cores, all ram and all attached devices.
AROS apps are single core only.. AROS itself is running as single process.

We will soon allow to run multiple "single" AROS processes on different cores.
So every singlecore app runs on an dedicated core.
But basically it is just a toy and no real solution. But it works..

For Pi users again:
"sudo Xorg -configure"

than "sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.config"

change the resolution to something fitting your Screen (1280x1024 or 1980x1080)
AROS doesn't autoresize on ARM, so you need to change Screenprefs in AROS manually)

press "ctrl o" to overwrite xorg.conf
press "ctrl x" to quit nano

type "startx"

///////
Sorry have no Pi, so a bit handwork is needed ; )
