software AROS   software AROS : AEROS for Pi beta 5 public release
   posted by phoenixkonsole on 23-Nov-2013 20:29:54 (3092 reads)
A little late but here it is:

Beta 5 for unregistered users (without lx command)
To execute Linux-stuff you need to do a right click on the bottom task bar.

A shaky video showing it can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nmUxs-fjQ8k

Read more ---->


New / Features / Fixes:
Based on newer AROS ARHMfh build based on Deadwoods stable ARM ABI
Clicking on AHI pref icon doesn't crash it anymore
Not as ugly as last release (Icon mix)

Included Apps
AROS:
- Everything being part of the nightlies except FryingPan,DOOM and Quake
- Experimantel OWB (not Oddyssey)
- Vice C64/C128 emulator

Linux:
LibreOffice
Audacious
Dillo
Netsurf
Midori
Tuxpaint
Abuse
Prboom
ScumVM incl. Beneath a steel sky and Flight of the Amazon Queen
Frozen Bubble
Synaptic packet manager
And more

I am still preparing AEROS for Cubieboard which is a bit more performant and has support for 2d and 3D accelerated X11.

The raspberry Pi can gain a speedbump as soon Xwayland works.

Update link will be ready at 22:22 german time(November 23rd - 2013)
www.aeros-os.org

Next version will have native ports of Abuse and more but i wait until mounting host-drives is working again.

Slow GFX, other than that looks nice. Well done!

You can do 2 tricks for performance:
1. Edit the Pi config file to make the CPU running at higher clock (this one was 700MHZ)
2. Lower the resolution. 800x600 gives classic feeling and runs 4times better ; )

EDIT:
Deadwood fixed the bug. So with next release you can access USB-sticks and Host-filesystem from AROS. I would call it than 1.0

EDIT2:
I have also reduced the Framebuffer Memory to have more RAM available on 256MB Pi's. If you have one with 512 you could change the VRAM size via config file too.

So this is too slow for full screen games ?

I was trying to judge the speed of game in the DOS mode but you just showed simple animation sequence.

Any benchmarks and fps for games at different resolutions would be more informative for a user.

AROSOID platforms seem to lack showing benchmarks for some reason.

good work though.

There are a few bugs left, else Quake and Doom(both AROS) would work. In software rendering you can expect somewhat of between Pentium 166 and 200MHZ performance.

If you use GPU, which needs special compiled Games (Quake3 is available, some stuff from Pandora handheld does work too) it is quite nice. Normal stuff installed by Synaptic which asks for X11 only will run like a snug.

Next version will come with omxplayer, so you can run HD videos using the GPU.

The whole thing will learn to fly if Xwayland is ready and if AROS hosted will just work with that compatibility layer.

Thanks I will look forward to the next update.

As I am hoping I should then be able to use the Host-filesystem mounting to access the same files from both sides of the system and setup need tricks like taking pictures and recording video using my Raspberry Pi's camera module from a click on a button in DOPUS4 under AROS then open the resulting files by double clicking on them from the DOPUS4.

For bonus points I may even be able send the video's to omxplayer player under AROS giving me hi-def video recording and playback from AROS on my Raspberry Pi.

The Raspberry Pi may not be the fastest computer in the world but for native AROS apps it should be faster than even my BlizzardPPC/060 and should be good for some quite interesting projects. But for playing Amiga games I think I will stick with my Minimig or WinUAE, on the other hand I expect both DOOM and Quake to be quite playable under AROS on the Raspberry Pi even if it is only as fast as a high end Pentium or low end Pentium II.

Well done!
It`s a bit spartan though and a bunch of programs included like in Icaros Desktop would be better. Looking forward for a more polished version (personal opinion)!
