this distribution was born for fun and passion for aros stands out from the others for the type of icon set used, there is no hosted solution for this download icaros ;)

I came across a draft of text on aros, thanks to serk we have text2pdf but I could not find a program for drafting the text before doing the conversion because it was not possible to limit the margins where the text was to be inserted, here with simple editor this it is possible, the margins are preset depends on the opening of the window, it is not an excellent way of working but all in all with these two tools we can create text pages in pdf format ;)

Salvo, on AROS we already have many little string management tools coming from Unix, in the Development:bin directory. You might look into them to add line feeds at the end of each "printed" line, in order to better format text before creating the PDF file. This might be a good approach to automatize things a little. Obviously, you need to know text font size and print resolution in order to break lines correctly. Inside Icaros Desktop there is the manual of GNU Tools I have collected some years ago. You may start there to find what you need.

Ciao Salvatore, this one looks very nice. I know it's supposed to be a "Tiny" distribution but does it have any software development tools? Do you have a web page/blog where users can preview it before downloading it?
Title: Re: TinyAros Distibution Thread
Post by: salvo on May 30, 2020, 07:57:59 PM
no unfortunately I do not have a blog and website, I should be going to do it in the next few weeks anyway at the beginning of the thread there are screen shots of the system and as regards the developmet tools since you asked me I will include them, so they don't take up much space in the final ISO

Salvatore,

Now I feel that it is more necessary than ever
a Libre Office in any AROS flavor,
Magazine-type manuals is what we need,
teach new users,
someone is encouraged to make a magazine with me from AROS,
and regarding Tiny AROS I like it but too much yellow is loading it uses an elegant turquoise tone,

I like the looks of Tiny AROS. First what is the name od the clock in the top right?  Is it DigiClock?

Second is your distro based on AROS 32 bit or AROS 68K?

Hello I agree your Distro but I can not load it on my 6 x86 Pcs... Is it only for VirtualBox?

I burned lots of times to usbs and not mbr/efi problem

I am having sane experience than with IcAros, imposible mission

Can I use Amilator or any other grub to make it bootable?

Amilator has a Linux bootloader, AROS uses its own Native Grub.
Amilator uses a FS-UAE emulator, I was one of the first to install it and boot it with AfA OS and OS4.1

No it is not only for virtualbox. It can run on any virtualization software and on almost any native hardware.

Quote

Mentioning USB and burning in the same sentence already makes me very suspicious.

You either burn a cd-rom/dvd or write an USB image. An ISO image <> USB image.

What software do you use to 'burn' your USBs ? And speaking of USBs, what do you mean exactly by that ? Is it a USB dvd-rom drive or a so-called USB-stick (also known as USB-pendrive and/or USB-flash memory).

Quote
I am having sane experience than with IcAros, imposible mission
Please feel free to elaborate on what you exactly did to make things not work for you.

Quote

AROS uses grub, so there is no need to make it bootable simply because it already is.

What most people do seem to miss though is that AROS uses a native filesystem named SFS, and most if not all software that allows you to write an ISO image to a USB-pendrive does not take that fact into account, and therefor such software will always fail to create a proper booting USB-pendrive for you.

The easiest way for end-users to make that work is by booting the ISO image in a virtual machine (using whatever virtualization software), then attach a USB-pendrive to the VM (and into AROS) and run the AROS installer.

The only thing i do not know is if tinyaros provides a script that allows you to install itself onto another device that way. If it does not then you can work around that by manually preparing a USB-pendrive by installing grub and formatting it as SFS and then copy over the files from the tinaros ISO image.

I have tried several times to install the bootloader and format through installAROS and then copied the contents of the ISO, also copied with Dopus4, the result is always the same "MBR Error 3".

all you need to do is burn a cd, if your computers do not load distribution and just an incompatibility problem, you can always use virtual machines but i have no experience with that, i am currently using beta version and it works fine, amilator it's another thing it has nothing to do with aros x86, it loads OS3 and OS4

Too less information to be able to address properly.


USB-pendrive ? size > 128 GB or even > 32 GB or > 8 GB (restrictions on some very old BIOS) ? Do you have it manually partitioned or put a MBR on it manually ?


The usual way: create VM, boot AROS iso, insert pendrive, start installaros, wipedisk, remove-pendrive, reboot aros VM, insert pendrive, start installaros, use existing Aros partitions and proceed with installing AROS.


Don't use a second work partition, or specify a size for the boot partition at your first try.


Wipe disk, then installing grub manually should be enough but then you still need to copy the files from a particular distro manually.

As long as you do that to a USB pendrive....

Quote
I wanted to create a Pendrive "to" install AROS
.. then you are doing exactly that  :)

Once you have 'installed' AROS to the pendrive, you can then boot that pendrive natively on your machine and start the installaros tool .... to  install aros again (to another device).

Quote
I have done more votlte the procedure you mentioned with more Pendrive and never worked, the same Pendrive work perfectly if I install AROS
Right now i interpret your sentence as: "I have done this procedure (installing AROS to a pendrive as i magorium described) many times with multiple different pendrives and this never worked for me, but the same pendrive works perfectly if i install AROS to that pendrive (which is exactly the same procedure as i magorium described)"

I am aware that your native language isn't English, so please forgive me for saying so but, i am unable to make any sense of that sentence as i am currently able to interpreted it. If you are unable to express it in detail in the English language then please feel free to write things in your native tongue so that i am able to use a translation service.

But whatever you wanted to say, afaik this does not account for you receiving a MBR error-code 3.

You keep writing in riddles my friend  :)

I have watched those videos and they are (more or less) showing what i also do to prepare a pendrive. The only thing that i can see is in that in one of those video's you explicitly specify the size of the work partition (which i do not specify for the sake of keeping the process as clean as possible), and in the other you have an addition fat partition. Both can (under certain conditions) influence the boot-process.

Unfortunately neither of those two video's show me the actual native boot-process where you experienced a MBR boot-error. Neither am i able to see in those video's what the AROS installer actually created on the pendrive when you finished the installer (how does the partition (or partitions) look like after installation, for example by viewing the layout, for example, with (g)parted.

Quote
What I would like to do is what RUFUS or other programs do to "burn" an ISO
Yes, i understand that you wish to have such a thing but, that won't help you when you experience a MBR boot-error when you boot either an external HD (connected through usb) or pendrive native on your machine, simply because the root cause for your experienced error will not be taken away with software like RUFUS.

Tools like RUFUS are highly overrated, and can't currently be used with AROS. I am investigating how to create a hybrid grub ISO that works for all circumstances, but unfortunately is a slow process for me at the moment. In theory a correct created hybrid ISO can be 'burned' to a pendrive and boot AROS as intended.

Quote
I have enough experience on AMiGA OS and AROS OS and I think I've done all the possible tests, maybe my Pendrivers are not suitable at hardware level !
I have literally tried with the cheapest of the cheapest of pendrives (not fake ones though), and i only experienced one failure with an Integral pendrive. Once AROS was finished with installing grub the pendrive was completely ruined, and there was not a tool in the world that was able to resurrect the pendrive. This was not caused by AROS but due to faulty system logic that was  present on the pendrive).

It was just broken so, i returned it to the store. I was lucky there because the store had just started selling Integral hardware and as a result were very keen on keeping their (and Integral's) reputation high, so if i could show them my pendrive was literally broken i could swap it for another one. I declined that swap offer, and explained to them that i had lost many valuable files (AROS is very valuable to me  ;D ) because of the integral pendrive being faulty and so they offered me a refund and some hush-hush-money (which i accepted).

But, the real issue here for you is that if you claim that you experience a MBR boot-error code, that this can be related to many other factors that you probably did not already consider. For example, even if the hardware i test is reluctant to boot AROS, i then literally tear out all hardware that is able to influence things, flash a custom BIOS or otherwise.

Another reason for me to think there goes something wrong at your end is that (if i remember correctly) you wrote that you experienced the MBR boot error-code on different machines. You could of course be very unfortunate in the choice of your hardware, but i personally do not believe in such coincidence.

So that leaves only one route to take, and that is to figure out what exactly goes wrong at your end. A "It does not work", is not a valid option/reason in my book  ;)

Thanks for the reply, no there are no puzzles, "MBR code" comes out when I "do not" extract the pendrive, if I remove the pendrive after formatting it and insert it then I get a black screen with a blinking dash

In that video I split the Hardisk to leave space for a FAT32 partition to share with the PC, as shown at the end of the video, however I didn't use "Gparted" but "AOMEI Partition Assistant".

The old videos posted did not give me problems both the Pendrive and the Hardisk worked perfectly on my PCs

I've been able to resurrect some pendrives with some special tools found by VID/PID discovered by ChipGenius.
I have also found a tool able to delete the small partition that some pendrives have "undeletable" this partition is seen by the PC as if it was a CDROM, this tool also lets you create partitions CDROM

Well, perhaps there are no puzzles for you, but for some reason i have no idea what the conditions are when you  experience these issues.


I leave it to that for now as we are discussing this in the wrong thread (again i am terribly sorry Salvo). In case you wish to pursue this then we should do that in another thread. I did provide a response to your remarks though.

Quote
In that video I split the Hardisk to leave space for a FAT32 partition to share with the PC, as shown at the end of the video, however I didn't use "Gparted" but "AOMEI Partition Assistant".
As i wrote before: Usually that is not a problem but it can be (under certain circumstances) that the pendrive is unable to boot because of the presence of such an additional partition.

Quote
The old videos posted did not give me problems both the Pendrive and the Hardisk worked perfectly on my PCs
And that is where i get puzzled .... If you install it the way it is suppose to be installed then you write that you have no issues, yet at the same time you keep writing that when you follow this process you get an MBR boot error code when you boot such a created pendrive native on your system.....


I am in all honestly just lost with regards to what you are actually doing/experiencing there...

Quote
I've been able to resurrect some pendrives with some special tools found by VID/PID discovered by ChipGenius.
I have also found a tool able to delete the small partition that some pendrives have "undeletable" this partition is seen by the PC as if it was a CDROM, this tool also lets you create partitions CDROM
Thank you for mentioning these tools. I am aware such tools exists (i sometimes make use of them as well).


I am aware that there are pendrives setup the way you just described, and which is also able to confuse some BIOS's. For AROS (in combination with most BIOS's) it should come up as a (simple) extended HD partition.

I already knew of the existence of a mail provider that gives you the chance to read your emails with our Yam and SimpleMail clients, you should use the IMAP protocol so the latter program, at a cost of 25 euros a year you can open a Account where you include all your providers (Yahoo, Gmail, etc.) and so you can easily read with Aros your mail, alternatively you can always open a free account, a mail address will be assigned to you, the provider is called Email.it and you can also consult in English
