Hi All,

As you may know, the current ABIv0 system is based on codebase from end of 2016. Overlast 4 years there have been a number of improvements made in AROS mainline which has never been made available to users.

I started working on updating the ABIv0 code base, but for this to succeed I will need your help with testing. Below you will find two ISOs: Testing and Reference. Download the Testing ISO and try it on your system. Look for any regressions (booting, native graphics, usb support, audio support, network support, etc). In case you find something that you think is broken, please download the Reference ISO and test there as well. If something works on Reference ISO but does not work on Testing ISO, please post in this thread with description of problem and your hardware.

Bugtracker: https://github.com/deadw00d/AROS/issues?q=is%3Aopen+is%3Aissue+project%3Adeadw00d%2FAROS%2F3

Note on schedules: If you look into the naming of .zip file you will see two components, for example 20170402-1

20170402 describes the master code base date on which the specific ABIv0 build is based on. I expect to upgrade the code base every 1-2 months
1 describes the revision of ABIv0 build on the same master code base. This mostly changes when bug fixes are introduced. I expect to have new revision every 1-2 weeks.

Thanks salvo.

Does atheros.device work correctly with Reference ISO?

Great news! I'll download those tomorrow and try on my systems.

Cheers,

Thanks - can you try with "noacpi" grub command line? (press 'e' to edit on grub screen, then 'ctrl-x' to continue booting)

I'm using VBox 6.1 and there is boots correctly.

Ok, so far I could test it on VMware Player 15 and


- booted fine both with VESA and Native driver
- sound is garbled (sb128.audio) at 44.1 KHz HIFi stereo and ++.
- I could power off the machine via the ACPI function
- VMware SVGA driver seems to work pretty well


I must integrate files into Icaros Desktop to see if there are noticeable regressions. So this will require some more time.


In order to save time and efforts, are you planning to release another ISO in the next few days? If not, I will proceed with integrating files into current build of Icaros Desktop and let icaros beta testers to test it, along with newer features I added in the latest weeks.

Thanks, noted about audion problems.

Please see the first post. I updated it with explanation of schedules.

While integrating AROS system files I noticed two differences:


- tool "delete" and its icon in system/wanderer/tools are not present
- smartcan is not present in wbstartup
