I've downloaded v1 nightly for the raspi, extracted the archive directory contents onto an empty fat formatted sd-card, plugged the sd-card into my raspi 3b+, got some current into the raspi and....

.... staring at me is a beautiful screen with a picture of vertical bars displaying from black (left) to blue (right) ....

And that seems to be it. Nothing more, nothing less  ???

Is that the current state of the native Raspi version ? e.g. more development is required to make it do more than that picture ? Or am I perhaps doing something wrong and/or is there additional configuration required to show some lovely cat eyes (whether they be looking for a boot device or those accompanying the about window) ?

Mr. Shultz is working on the raspi variant but at the moment I think it's busy emu68 :)

M.S. got things working for him (years ago)  ;)

I am just not sure his changes made it back (yet) into the AROS source tree  But if they where there is either regression or I am doing something wrong and/or there needs to be some tinkering in order to make things work/boot correctly.

Sorry, I just noticed there is dedicated platform subforum dedicated to the pi.

Could a mod move this thread to there ? It seems I am not allowed to do that myself.

And in case the thread can be moved, perhaps this thread can be moved into that same subforum as well ?
