Hi,

As mentioned in another thread, I'm applying selected commits to my repository. Here is first build of the ROMs: https://axrt.org/development/aros-rom-20211121.zip

I held off for now specific changes to joystick and AGA - they will be included in next versions. Please test for know if these ROMs are "good enough".

Here is list of applied changes:
Code: [Select]
Marlon Beijer   Sat Mar 20 16:15:03 2021 +0100  Fix Z includes
Marlon Beijer   Sun Jan 31 14:48:25 2021 +0100  Solve issue where ADATE wasn't properly defined when compiling alib
Marlon Beijer   Sun Mar 14 15:26:22 2021 +0100  429c26980abdc2e7b1af3cf4e4566f64c99620e9
Marlon Beijer   Sun Mar 14 15:32:57 2021 +0100  429c26980abdc2e7b1af3cf4e4566f64c99620e9
Marlon Beijer   Sat Feb 6 11:29:54 2021 +0100   Add VASM crosstool on m68k target
ronybeck        Wed Mar 10 20:34:08 2021 +0100  Delete arch/m68k-amiga/hidd/sagasd directory
Ronnie Beck     Fri Feb 26 15:57:09 2021 +0100  Moved the sagasd driver from hidd to dev
Ronnie Beck     Mon Feb 22 21:54:36 2021 +0100  - Set nominal bit depth for the Amiga GFX driver to 2 bit. This ensures that booting without startup-sequence results in at least a 2 bit colour screen (before it was 1 bit which is horrible).
Ronnie Beck     Sun Feb 14 12:53:22 2021 +0100  - New graphics modes for SAGA
Ronnie Beck     Thu Jan 7 22:44:22 2021 +0100   - SD Card driver update to recognise RDB partitions - Theoretically it should make booting from SD Card possible if the filesystem is a standard file system but this is only partialy tested on AOS. - This is a WIP and based on the work of Alynna
Ronnie Beck     Tue Dec 29 17:25:45 2020 +0100  Added SD Card driver modification from Alynna
Ronnie Beck     Tue Dec 15 20:55:35 2020 +0100  Added new SAGA modes
Ronnie Beck     Sun Dec 13 16:11:59 2020 +0100  - Updated scripts to compile without MMU support.
Ronnie Beck     Sun Nov 8 23:11:21 2020 +0100   More experimental changes
Ronnie Beck     Sat Aug 15 15:17:02 2020 +0200  Increase speed of PutPixel in AmigaVideo driver
Thomas Scheller Wed Aug 12 19:35:27 2020 +0200  Fix Workbook filter Icons and AllFiles
Ronnie Beck     Thu Aug 6 22:58:21 2020 +0200   Fix that enables NTSC modes
Ronnie Beck     Mon Aug 3 21:14:26 2020 +0200   Removed debug printf() from sagagfx
Ronnie Beck     Sun Aug 2 16:19:27 2020 +0200   New SAGAGFX Driver from Flype. This supports the new V4 graphics architecture. LORES is still half height/width and a TODO.
Ronnie Beck     Fri Jul 31 22:05:28 2020 +0200  BigGun's save/restore register fixes. Should fix some AMMX applications that suffered.
Ronnie Beck     Sat Jul 25 19:31:16 2020 +0200  Added AMMX register patch
Ronnie Beck     Fri Jul 17 19:17:36 2020 +0200  Alternate fix for Early Boot on NTSC. Buttons should be correctly placed
Ronnie Beck     Thu May 7 21:43:28 2020 +0200   Added short delay after re-enabling interrupts
Ronnie Beck     Sat Jul 11 15:59:55 2020 +0200  Small correction to P96
Ronnie Beck     Sat May 9 17:58:14 2020 +0200   Changes from Flype so that a single SAGA driver can work both on a V2 and a V4
Ronnie Beck     Sat May 9 13:01:28 2020 +0200   Fix to stop debug output from being printed when debugging is not active
Ronnie Beck     Fri May 8 01:15:29 2020 +0200   First working SAGA driver for the V2
Michal Schulz   Mon Mar 9 20:16:11 2020 +0100   Send a handshake and set CIA serial in input mode during keyboard initialization. This helps against keyboard missing after reset.
Michal Schulz   Tue Feb 25 00:16:54 2020 +0100  typo fixed

Tested your ROMs with the latest "Nightly build" and on WinUAE they don't work well, the Wanderer volume is requested, tried to rename the volume Wanderer but then it doesn't start the Wanderer command, from the prompt no command works, not even the DIR command.

I hope they are not Vampire-only Roms, otherwise they can't be used for standard AROS 68k anymore!

You can only take over selected commits (f.e. bugfixes) not the whole rom. As I understand it they have changed it to a degree that it no longer works with UAE. ApolloOS still boots with normal roms so you can propably use Aros 68k with the roms but only on vampire.

@AMIGASYSTEM

No, they are "generic" 68k roms. I only applied certain commits that are not Vampire specific.
Looks like something went bad with my ROMs. I'll see what's the problem and post new version of ROMs in coming days.

Yes nothing works, I deleted the FixFont from the Startup-sequence, or even started the system from "AROS Early Startup Control" and from the propmt no command works, surely something is corrupted or missing !

Moreover, the Wanderer folder is located in SYS:\System\Wanderer

Instead it is searched in SYS:Wanderer or more precisely in Wanderer:Wanderer

Ah OK I understood something wrong. Thanks for your help

@AMIGASYSTEM, OlafS3

Can you tell me if you take these system files and attached ROM if they boot for you?

Hmm, I'm using FS-UAE with A4000 template and all I get booting the linked nightly is black screen with some white stripes from time to time. :/

What CPU do you have set in WinUAE and do you use JIT?

BTW, I tried downloading AROS Vision (aros_2020_Basis_UAE.7z) twice and each time I get "unexpected end of archive" error under Mint 20 when trying to decompress.
