Paolo I use Win7 at 32Bit and your ISO at 64Bit starts without problems with VMWare, if instead I try to start the ISO of Nightly Builds 64Bit VMWare he tells me that I can't start it because I don't have a 64Bit system At least that's what I understand.

---- Italiano -----

Paolo io uso Win7 a 32Bit e la tua ISO a 64Bit si avvia senza problemi con VMWare, se invece provo ad avviare la ISO della Nightly Builds 64Bit VMWare mi dice che non posso avvialo perchè non ho un sistema a 64Bit almeno quello mi sembra di capire

Mounted the ISO image and started the sh script to install on Linux...after several long minutes while text quickly scrolls down the AROS shell...

It suddenly appears!

No warning. No "Success!" message. It just appears on the screen. I kinda like the 64bit background image.

Now for testing. :-)
Well, it seems that the Shell works and it's fairly stable! But there's not much software to run...yet.

As long as you know how to "translate" the Ubuntu-based scripts of Icaros Desktop, it won't be a problem. But if you're not enough skilled with the Linux shell, please download my Ubuntu VM instead. It will spare you a lot of headaches.

@paolone

Is this a bug or a planned feature for Arosdev 64bit Environment?

When Linux goes to sleep after inactivity...the Screensaver Date is in Italian! :-)

This is just to remember AROS coders to eat some pizza and play mandolino. Jokes apart, when installing Linux I had to choose a time zone and it seems Ubuntu takes the decision good also for other settings like name of days, measurement units, values formats and so on. Just change your Ubuntu settings to fix it.

I am rusty on the Scripting.

I think it's cool. I might keep it that way. It keeps track of your time zone...and reminds me when it's time to eat pizza!

Icaros 64 native Test run
« Reply #11 on: October 10, 2019, 05:38:30 PM »
I gave the Icaros64 a test run on native Hardware. With my HP Z420 six Core XEON the boot Process halts.. the latest SMP ISO boots fine on this machine.
Then I tried a Core i5 and Icaros64 booted fine there.. I could even login to the AROS IRC Channel with AIRCOS.. and the RTL8169 Driver works fine!

I had no Sound with Soundblaster Live 5.1!

Keep up the good work!

I have a few bug reports for Icsros 64bit.

After opening a shell when starting to type the first char is always ' ( '

Maybe it's related to the next issue? Even after initial setup when restarting Icaros the keyboard layout reverts to "Italiana" and I have to constantly use Input Prefs to set it to American (default).

Lastly when using Wanderer in Icon Mode to drag-n-drop to copy Wanderer only copies one time. Each successive copy operation seems to fail. So I must use shell wth Copy From To for copying.

Also I'm working on an App Launcher for the Unity Dock in Linux. The Launcher has an AROS Eye Icon and it is a *. desktop link to the ./icaros item.
