Site feedback / aros-exec.net domain to expire in 5 days
« Last post by paolone on Today at 08:53:02 AM »
Hello. One year ago, when aros-exec.org stopped working, I registered the redirector aros-exec.net, which worked for both ae.amigalife.org and The Archives (archives.aros-exec.net). Since it was a 'emergency shortcut' I don't know how many people are currently using, I am not intentioned to renew it.


I write here just to understand if there is interest, otherwise I will let it expire gracefully after October 18, 2019.

Icaros Desktop / Re: Icaros Viewer

Using Icaros Viewer to assemble PNG Icon Files!

But maybe there are people who want to try out Icaros Desktop on more modern machines with more than 4 GB of RAM.. I have Icaros Desktop installed on a HP Z420 with 16 GB of RAM .. it runs just fine except of the freezes! So it would be fine if that could be fixed on AROS ABI V0 because then there would be a showstopper less on beefy Hardware for Icaros Desktop!

Have you tried Icaros Desktop 64bit which is ABIv1? It can handle more than 4GB because of addressing.

AVIv0 is designed for 32bit. It can't use more than 4GB of memory. I'm not sure of the exact limit. For a PC the address limit is about 3.25GB, I believe.

If you are running ABIv0 it's only 32bit not 64bit. Icaros Desktop Native I'm running on an Intel Atom mini PC in a Morex Mini-Itx case. It has 4GB of memory installed and it works just fine. I wouldn't install more than 4GB because it's only 32bit.

You probably need to ask deadwood as he declared himself responsible for abi v0 maintenance.

I removed 4 GB from my ACER PC and Icaros Desktop (running native) seems to run much more stable than before, now that I have only 4 GB of RAM.. Icaros Desktop doesn't freeze anymore.. and a Filesystem Error that appeared before.. "AROS tried to access Block outside it's Partition" dissapeared and Icaros Desktop boots without Errors! I am talking of ABI V0!

It would be fine if sombody else could test that.. and probably the Bug could be fixed.. so that AROS doesn't freeze anymore if more than 4 GB are installed in the Computer!

Development (General) / Re: A pre-configured Development environment for AROS

A special thanks to bsek for the help in getting it running. It seems the information on IcarosDesktop.org should be ammended slightly.


Would you please provide a detailed information about what you did? the linux command 'history' would come handy too, to track the exact commands you gave. Thank you.

Sorry. I've been busy. This is the sequence that I used however I'm going to actually declare a target and try to build an ISO as well:

mkdir -p aros/build

cd aros

git clone https://github.com/aros-development-team/AROS.git

cd build
../AROS/configure --enable-ccache --with-gcc-version=9.1.0 --with-binutils-version=2.32

make -j2

The last part is very important as well. -j2 means to use "2 cores" while building.

Using "git clone" is the better method to download and install the sources rather than simply downloading zip files.

When it comes to ports repository I think ~90% of targets should work with ABIv0.
