software AROS   software AROS : AEROS beta 7 for Raspberry Pi public version
   posted by phoenixkonsole on 28-May-2014 19:08:29 (2672 reads)
Most important news:

It comes with 2D HW accelerated X11. No more black tearing if you move windows and accelerated scrolling.








Changelog for beta7:
  • Updated Linux system
  • 2D accelerated window movement and scrolling (no black tearing anymore, faster)
    added XBMC
  • Access rPi GPU directly - after Exiting you need to press ctrl+alt+f2 and then ctrl+alt+f7 to get back to Wanderer-Screen
  • Fixed disordered icons
  • removed empty folders
  • removed ._-files
  • removed crashing stuff
  • fixed ejecting external media from Linux-filemanager wich was broken
  • added scrot command to take screenshots from shell
  • cleaned some icons (fragments from nightly)


www.aeros-os.org
Go to public section to find the beta 7 download link.

The public release is missing the lx command which allows you to launch Linux programs from Wanderer or AROS shell. You can still run them from Taskbar.

There is a chance to become AEROS for additional Platforms including lx-command:

It would be interesting to see reviews / tests of AEROS powered Pi vs low end AOS4 & MorphOS HW.


I imagine it can do 3D acceleration for linux games etc. but is 3D acceleration accessible for AROS games as well?


(I imagine that something like AEROS powered Asus EEPC is a lot faster in everything, but Pi has advantage of being a fixed HW and in production)


After I fixed my sempron (1.7Ghz, 1.5G DDR333) based laptop, I hope I manage to try AEROS on it.
(too bad PATA SSD drives are non-existent in local shops, the stock drive is very slow ... for example MorphOS on my "new" 1hz PowerBook flies when compared to sempron + mintdebian)

(the laptop has Nvidias 5200GO chip, so tweaking is required if I wanted to get 3D out of it ... linux monotilth requires me to build my own kernell perhaps...
but if my hoppies develop as I hope, I should have no difficulty to build another kernell )

Hi,

3D for AROS games on Raspberry Pi is not possible because AROS implementation is based on OpenGL and not OpenGL ES.

You would need a arm device with PCI or PCIe and to add a geforce. Than it would be possible. Existng solutions are still >300.

Pi Vs AOS /MOS Hw depends on what you are trying to do.

A Pi can play FullHD content better than any AOS or MOS Hw.
Cpu tasks are on pi much slower than an Efika and only comparable to a Classic Amiga with PPC-board.

3D (linux gaming) is better on Pi than a Ati9250 combo with a SAM.

You should keep an eye on the devices i have written here:
https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/indiego-transform-any-amiga-mac-pc-and-raspberry-into-a-video-game-console/x/2310364

A performant HW combo with AEROS and 68k emulation is in the making in italy....
