Software News   Software News : Roadshow Update for MorphOS
   posted by AndreasM on 16-Jan-2013 13:01:10 (2163 reads)
Since today there is an update available, so roadshow can also be used on MorphOS.

Roadshow is much faster than the internal TCP / IP stack for MorphOS.

click read more


Please note, that with MorphOS a manual installation of roadshow is required. The supplied installation script will not run under MorphOS. The user should therefore familiar with the operating system.

The manually installed Roadshow is now directly usable and requires no further intervention to boot.

New sample files for the network usage on the Pegasos / Pegasos II, and for Apple hardware are also included.

The update can be downloaded for free on the Support homepage Roadshow.

About Roadshow

Roadshow is an Amiga TCP/IP stack, that allows you to connect to the Internet, to access your e-mail, web pages, chat, etc. It can also be used to access and exchange files within your local home network.

Roadshow is one of the fastest, if not THE fastest Amiga TCP/IP stacks.

Some features include:

- Amiga-ised configuration utilities rather than the terse and somewhat cryptic Unix legacy tools
- DHCP configuration for Ethernet devices
- "TCP:" device support, for use with, for example, ARexx scripts
- Enhanced & cleaned-up software development kit, that includes the complete source code to all the configuration tools and sample programs

and ... much more ...

This is the Roadshow 68k version, which runs in emulation/JIT on MorphOS. The OS4 version is the only PPC native variant.

When Roadshow 68k finally became available for purchase, one brave soul who goes by the handle "Dragster" experimented with Roadshow 68k on MorphOS and found that with the help of one extra shell command he could get it to work.

I was surprised to hear that, just as surprised as I was when I originally heard that Roadshow 68k (for some unknown reason) did not work on MorphOS.

I investigated the matter, exchanged E-Mail with Harry Sintonen, and then worked on making small changes to the Roadshow code which sets up the network interfaces. I also added two sample configurations for the Pegasos/Pegasos II, and the Apple G4/G5 hardware which MorphOS can run. This is in the small MorphOS update which was released yesterday.

This is the whole story. However, something still is not quite right, and I am currently working on getting a handle on the problem.

1. Are any benchmarks out there?
2. Will the native TCP/IP stack be updated for MorphOS 3.2?

Oops, I stand corrected. Thank you for taking the plunge and giving that old TCP/IP stack a shot where it didn't seem to have much of a chance

Yes, that's at least the plan.The updated netstack delivers 40-45 MB/s (on Powerbook Gigabit). For those who need faster network _now_ Roadshow offers a good stopgap until updated Netstack will be available.

Yes, there was. Other versions wouldn't be released until certain time after AmigaOS4 release. Or something like that. Anyway, here it finally is!

I made an installer for Roadshow on Morphos, since the orginal installer doesnt work and if it worked it would install lots of config files for amiga hardware.
It also lets you skip to install the firewall and ppp/ppoe stuff for adsl users

It doesnt touch anything in your existing Morphos system or network config so if you install you have to manually disable internal netstack and run Roadshow 68K manually (s:Network-Startup is renamed Network-Startup.off) Doubleclick from Ambient to start or rename to Net-Startup to let Roadshow start at next boot.

It also let you tune internal Roadshow settings based on calulations you enter
to better find settings spesific to transfer rates and more suited to systems with more memory and not low-mem 68k classic systems, as this stack is aimed at... might boost you browsing speed...

After tuning I got tripple transfer rates in OWB downloads, compared with orginal unaltered Roadshow settings.

you need a working arexx tho...
