AROS One x86 v1.5 ISO DVD: Download (https://sites.google.com/view/arosone)

AROS One x86 v1.5 USB Flash: Download (https://sites.google.com/view/arosone)  (To burn the USB image we recommend using the software Rufus (https://rufus.ie/) or Etcher (https://www.balena.io/etcher/))


AROS One x86 New version of my Distribution based on the new Core by Deadwood, among the novelties a USB Flash App to Create Live Pendrive, App created by Paolone that I thank and modified by me to make it compatible on AROS One.


AROS One is now also distributed in the "Pendrive Image" format, once this image is burned on a 4GB or larger Pendrive it will allow you to recreate a Live USB that can be booted on all supported PCs and consequently install AROS on HD without the need for a DVD.

What's new in AROS One v1.5

- arSFSDoctor (GUI for Disk Recovery or Deleted Partitions and Corrupted SFS Partitions.)
- FakeFastmem (Adds FastMem on Wanderer)
- Updated Zune Libraries
- Removed from AROS One the program "RNOPublisher", those interested can download it from Aminet


AROS One Graphic Improvements:
- Mirror Effect Application Icons
- Glow effect on drawer icons
- Updated External Commands for ZuneARC
- Retouching 2 OS4-MOS Style Workbench Windows Skins
- New AviBuild Skin
- New Zune ARC Skins

-- Important --

I add an important note about the Live USB, as mentioned to burn the Pendrive Image of AROS One x86 you need a Pendrive of 4GB not smaller even if a little, but I strongly recommend to use a larger PenDrive so that you can have a partition exchange without the need to use a Virtual Machine.

Procedure:

Burn the Pendrive image with "Rufus" on a Pendrive larger than 4GB, finished burning you will find a Pendrive divided into two partitions, AROS One on the first partition and a second partition "not used".

At this point start a program that manages the partition and format this second partition "residual" in FAT32, after this the partition will be visible both from Windows and AROS available to share data between the two OS.

In the next version will be included a Pendrive Image with the partition in FAT32 :)

I attach screenshot where the Wanderer and HDToolBox show the two partitions of the pendrive !

For the moment to download my Distro you need to log in with a Google account this is due to the fact that many are downloading it by exceeding the threshold of downloads available on Google Drive, those who do not have a Google account (rare because almost all of us have it on our cell phones) must wait 24 hours.

Another interesting operation carried out on my Aspire 5920, after creating the DualBoot (https://drive.google.com/file/d/1TaRVsm2B8KmRfb8J13_PJKX4Pz-9HV7C/view)  between AROS and Win10, i created a third Partition in FAT32, now the two Operating Systems have this Partition shared (see the two screenshots) and then you can exchange data.

I specify that AROS can also see the NTFS partition of Win10 but to do this I must enable "ntfs-handler" by default disabled on AROS because at the moment it is read-only.

Emulating with Qemu MorphOS I noticed that the AROS One DVD was not well managed by MOS, this was due to the lack of the Rock Ridge extension on the DVD that expands the ISO 9660 support for some file formats, extensions and long filenames.

Fixed the problem by recreating the AROS One ISO with the Rock Ridge extension added as originally for the Nightly Builds, now the AROS One DVD respects the standard ISO 9660/Rock Ridge format and is compatible with all O3, OS4, MOS and AROS.

As reported by users in addition to Rufus (https://rufus.ie/it/), To "Burn" the AROS One USB image to any USB device you can also use the software Etcher (https://www.balena.io/etcher/).

As already mentioned use Pendrive or HD larger than 4GB, doing this with the residual you can create a partition in FAT32 that can be used normally on Windows (the AROS partition will not be shown) but also as an exchange volume on AROS One that instead sees and manages both partitions.

Doing some testing on AROS One x86 I found that if you set spoffing to " Firefox 3.x" the videos are faster.
 Spoffing with iPads and iPhones is also faster.

Too bad the internal video player of OWB can't save videos like OWB MOS version (tested in emulation).

I attach video test, consider that in the test I use an old VMware on an obsolete DualCore

In preparation a new novelty for my AROS One, it is a series of scripts that allow you to change a complete AROS Theme, aka replacement of the Background (Wanderer), GUI (Zune), GUI Windows (Appearance), Pointer and Amstart Transparency Tint (x86 only), but you could also add Fonts Windows and Icons and System all with a simple click followed by a system restart.

Of course the news concerns both AROS One both the x86 and 68k version.

I enclose a small video (now works) that shows the procedure of changing the theme ArosOne-Grey => AroOneXP

Ok, Retrofunk was already part of AROS One, but from the next version I decided to leave only the themes complete with background that I created.
Seeing your request I'm adding again the Retrofunk Theme complete with Background, Pointer and other small improvements in AROS One style, thanks for asking me.

Unfortunately on AROS x86 there are no icon managers, to replace "copy" the icons you can use Dopus4

Or you can replace them easily from OS3 or AROS 68k with a tool that manages icons like the one shown in the screenshot

If it wouldn't take so much time I could convert my icons with a Retrofunk color, but this would take a lot of time, I did a little test and I must say that they are not bad (see screenshot), even if the colors have better visibility :)

Nothing logical, I went by nose, I noticed that some Descriptors did not work, and taking as reference the working one or only changed the extensions of reference.

I had only problems with the AIFF Audio file that with the recognition via extension was mistaken for an IFF image, here I solved by taking the descriptor from AROS 68k where was set only the "Mask".

Preparo un video per mostrare i passi rapidi fatti con Dopus4:

Very nice.

How do we get that special button for Dopus4 ?

Of course we could use the shell commands as well.

Would you also need a def_icon for the file association ?
Title: Re: AROS One x86 v1.5 ABIv0 Realized
Post by: AMIGASYSTEM on June 10, 2021, 09:48:22 PM
Yes, the Descriptor if it finds the Def Icon will associate the file according to the extension, in the absence of extension the file will be recognized if in the Descriptor is also included the Mask code.

Regarding Dopus4 I can attach my configuration so you can see the configuration of the two keys, which are simple even if I invented them. :D

Thanks for creating it, ZuneARC is the fastest and most qualitative archiving program on AROS that allows you to customize everything.
ZuneARC also allows you to upgrade to new formats even by inexperienced users as you can see in my video, I hope they are to your liking, i'm preparing other stylized icons for AROS One

Wasn't "recognizing" files the Amiga way a datatypes' duty?
Title: Re: AROS One x86 Distro
Post by: AMIGASYSTEM on June 18, 2021, 09:25:00 AM
Si, che io sappia su AROS x86 non esiste Deficons e Deficons Prefs, solo su AROS 68k se utilizzato quello di OS3.

Su AROS x86 il riconoscimento con o senza l'estensione avviente tramite il descrittore "Datatypes" e solo per alcuni formati e a tutti viene assegnata la stessa icona. Poi ci sono Applicazioni come UnARC che riesce a sfruttare il riconoscimento, ZuneARC e RNOArchive invece se non c'Ť l'estensione o se il file non ha un nome uguale all'estensione non riconoscono l'archivio, lo faranno solo se aggiungi manualmente l'estensione.

Detto questo se UnARC riesce a farlo potrebbero farlo anche ZuneARC e RNOArchive.

UnARC ha invece un'altro problema comune RNOArchive ovvero un problema sulla libreria XAD, dove i BZ2 vengono scomparrati male e gli archivi RAR mandano in GURU sia AROS che OS3, solo OS4 ha la libreria XAD che funziona bene con tutti gli archivi.

MOS per esempio "senza estensioni" non riconosce gli archivi TAR, GZ e BZ2, AROS x86 adesso con la mia correzione nel descrittore li riconosce, ma come detto funzionano solo con UnARC.


(https://ae.amigalife.org/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=519.0;attach=1216;image)


----- English -----

Yes, To my knowledge on AROS x86 there is no Deficons and Deficons Prefs, only on AROS 68k if used that of OS3.

On AROS x86 the recognition with or without the extension is done through the "Datatypes" descriptor,  and only for some formats and all are assigned the same icon. Then there are Applications like UnARC that can take advantage of the recognition, ZuneARC and RNOArchive instead if there is no extension or if the file does not have a name equal to the extension they do not recognize the archive, they will do it only if you manually add the extension.

If UnARC can do it, ZuneARC and RNOArchive can do it too.

UnARC has another common problem with RNOArchive, that is a problem with the XAD library, where BZ2 archives are not properly disappeared and RAR archives send both AROS and OS3 to GURU, only OS4 has the XAD library works well with all archives

MOS for example "without extensions" does not recognize TAR, GZ and BZ2 archives, AROS x86 now with my correction in the descriptor recognizes them, but as mentioned they only work with UnARC.

Some Programs, even in the Amiga world and AROS, only recognize files by file extension. They don't bother to check file signature. That's why when writing code we have to account for both situations, with or without file extension.

However, when saving files, using the file extension as an indicator to convert file types can be a useful feature. So dealing with file extensions can make things easier or more difficult.

Yes it is very important because if there is a wrong extension it is easy for the application to be led astray, but as said it can also hide something

Some users have told me that the close button windows on the "right" used on many OS and uncomfortable on AROS because they are used to have it on the "left".

I made the change and now all themes have the close button on the "left"; who is interested in restoring the button on the "right" can do it by making a small change to the script configuration Theme.

A few days ago, was released on Aminet "PerCIMan", a "cross-platform" program for managing contact and other information about people.

After testing "PerCIMan" I reported to its author "Ulrich Beckers" about a problem in the AROS version, basically the GUI cannot be resize

"Ulrich Beckers" is also the author of the Exutil Application already installed on AROS One X86/68k, also this Application suffers although in a minor form, the GUI can only be enlarged.

Installed on AROS One x86 the new version 53.4 of "ntfs3g-handler" that now also supports writing, there would be a small problem that if you use a Pendrive in NTFS you must insert it after booting the system otherwise it slows down the system startup.
 
Also the new version 53.3 of "exfat-handler" has been released but at the moment the Pendrive with this Filesystem can't be used because the ExFAT is not supported by the massstorace.class, is there a way to do it?

I have not tried with Mountlist because AROS system does not use Mountlist !

Nice to see ZuneARC is still useful these days!

Hi Yannick, I wanted to ask you if in the ZuneARC.cfg is possible to add an entry for the recognition of archive files "without extension", I tried with "Mask" or "Match" but they are not recognized by ZuneARC.

There is nothing like this implemented at the moment. It would require a new version. If I find some time Iíll look at it  , itís been a very long time since I started AROS for the last time. :-\

With the release of the new RapaGUI 2.0 some Applications developed with Hollywood based on the old version of RapaGUI may not work anymore or may work badly.

For this reason I've reported to Ulrich Beckers that his "Exutil" application doesn't work anymore while I've already reported some time ago the problems with the Manage contact "Perciman" applications (problem Resize GUI found only on AROS x86).

Finished also the descriptors for the "Video files", now all the most common video formats are recognized by Wanderer, unfortunately some formats require the presence of the extension, I have eliminated the recognition "without extension" because of some conflicts between the various formats with assignment of a def wrong icon, the GIFANIM are recognized perfectly but GifAnim.datatypes AROS shows only the first frame !

These are the Descriptors created and supported by MPLayer and Multiview

MPG
VOB
ASF
MOV
3GP
FLV
WMV
ANIM
GIFANIM

OGG
AIFF

OWB: Dowload and Play MP3 with MPlayer (script)

Today since OWB could not play an MP3 from the Amigaremix site I wanted to experiment with an external player, the only one that worked well in this circumstance was MPlayer, but I had problems with larger MP3s, MPlayer needs a high stack to play MP3 or some video formats.

On OWB if I'm not missing something it seems to not be able to give a stack to external tools, nor can it run tools with their icon and thus Tooltypes.

In the end I managed to give the stack to MPLayer creating a script and everything worked perfectly even running multiple MP3s, the MP3s played also remain available on files in RAM, see attached video

Successfully tested AROS AMP, the application lacks the features and settings of AmigaAMP but has no problems playing MP3s.

AROS AMP does not support AmigaAMP skins but something can be adapted.

AROS AMP has also been included in the upcoming release of AROS One.

As we all know unlike PCs or other platforms the Amiga or AROS can be turned off quietly from the switch without worrying about causing damage, unless the system is not performing some write operation, in this case you risk a file corruption or an invalidation of the Hardisk or Floppy, which is rare if you use some Filesystems.

Well in this regard, given the request from a User AlexanderLUFC I have created a small App (script arexx) to turn off the system using the system command Shutdown, the icon can also be inserted in AmigaStart ready to use, see screenshot, of course in the case of AROS you must turn off the PC from the switch, unless there is a command on AROS that I do not know that allows you to turn off the PC, if someone is more informed or has any idea is welcome.

On AROS x86 there are programs to Viewer Fonts, but none of them works as Workbench to associate Font file icons, does anyone know any application that can do this?

I add that Multiview can be associated but on AROS the "font.datatypes" doesn't seem to exist, the Descriptor instead exists !

Directory Dopus 5 , displays fonts..


BTW, I just installed your distro to my 2nd acer aspire one d150 and everything works well, keep up the great work.
Does gcc comes alone with 68k distro? So I can compile my x86 programs natively.

Post by: AMIGASYSTEM on August 31, 2021, 05:20:21 PM
Yes but it's an internal command of Dopus5, of course it works only if the fonts files are arranged in "detail", if you set the icon view the font icons will not work anymore because the icons are associated to Multiview that will not find the font.datatype, I add that Dopus5 recognizes only the old native Amiga fonts.

Moreover my AROS One x86 and AROS One 68k use the Wanderer standard and Dopus5 is not installed.

Thanks for testing it, it's very nice to have an appreciation from an experienced user.

AROS One is improving day by day, many things have changed and improved, there are also many software updates, in a while I will have to distribute the new version.

Hi,

Just wanted to say thank you for your distribution, having a usb option have been very useful, used dd from Linux to copy over
Installing from usb to sata ssd drive is so much faster and easier than dvd to hard drive  ;D

Been playing around with a couple of Dell Wyse thin clients with your distro and enjoying it all so far
https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Aros/Platforms/x86_Complete_System_HCL#Dell_2
There are shortcomings (no ati graphics 2d or 3d, usb3) but for old 10 year old hardware (atom and ion2 era equivalent) it has been interesting

Regards
Jeff
