software AROS   software AROS : AEROS for Pi beta4 new "stable" ABI
   posted by phoenixkonsole on 1-Sep-2013 19:21:13 (1671 reads)
Hello,

I am right now uploading beta 4 based on Deadwood's stable ARM ABI.
The ARM AROS builds were a kind of "ABI work in Progress". This fact hindered the possibility to aim for the AROS ARM build as developer.

Now we/ you and everyone can start porting apps to AROS for ARM.
(click read more)




Registered users can check www.aeros-os.org in about 3 hours.
Everyone else should check tomorrow for the public version. (It's still uploading).

Due to some failures (my stupidity) it is not rc1, but a beta4.

New in beta4:
- based on stable ARMhf ABI from Deadwood
Includes Contrib stuff like:
DEMOS, GAMES, Wazp3D, OWB (the old version and not tested/buggy), Screenrecorder, DOPUS (not Magellan).
Deadwood compiled lx for ARMhf so launching Linux stuff from AROS side is working as before. It lacks a lot of Linux applications from the last release. Feel free to use synaptic/aptitude/apt get.

Problems:
I had trouble because of Linux case sensitive FS
Stupidity... next release will look more consistent (AEROS icons).

Today I got a first preview of Directory OPUS Magellan for ARM. If it works I will add it to the next release (next weekend). At the same time I donated again money to the Magellan bounty as a thank you.

Please try tomorrow:
http://www.aeros-os.org/styled-11/index.html

Both, the public and the version for registered users, contain a cross compiler package for i586 put together by deadwood. I will upload it tomorrow as a separate package. Happy porting.

www.aeros-os.org

PS:
Please post bugs and failures.

Sound really good

DOPUS4 on its own is reason at least for me to run AROS linux hosted on arm.

Small update:
You can also download the last "closed" beta 3 including "lx"
And
Deadwood cross compiler package (so you can compile on a faster PC)

Now I have had a chance to try it out I can say its a big jump forward from older releases of AROS for the Raspberry Pi (both AROS nightly builds and previous AEROS beta's). As there is now a bit more native AROS software to try out and use unlike early releases were AROS had been reduced to a linux program launcher for AROS due to a lack of anything more advance than a few utilities like the Calculator running natively.

As you would expect from a beta release there are still a good number of rough edges but if you own a Raspberry Pi I would say this is now really worth a try
