Amiga Software News / MPlayer Setup on X5000
« Last post by remotenemesis on July 21, 2019, 05:55:57 PM »
Is anyone able to help me setup MPlayer on my X5000?

MPlayer output (through MPlayer-GUI) reports:

libdvdread: Using libdvdcss version 1.2.10 for DVD access
Cannot open Device: a1ide.device on unit 1
libdvdread: Could not open a1ide.device:1 with libdvdcss.
libdvdread: Can't open a1ide.device:1 for reading
Couldn't open DVD device: a1ide.device:1 (No such file or directory)
No stream found to handle url dvd://1

Am I using the wrong device?

Thanks  :)
Fingers crossed all works out and the A4000 isn’t toasted.
Well... it seems to be really complicated to install Linux on an Amiga 1200... I have NO CDDrive and NO AmigaOS partitions... just an A1200 with PCMCIA Network or CF card and an empty harddrive...

Now how to get Linux installed?

I can start from a modified Workbench Floppy and mount the PCMCIA CF Card which contains the vmlinuz, inird, amiboot and the install script... the kernel boots up and installer starts... but thats it... no network, no access to the PCMCIA CF card...

You see my problem? Maybe I did something wrong or its currently just not possible what I have in mind...

netboot-Installers can be found here [1] and here [2].

The link in [1] contain the installer builds built on the build machine network and may be outdated while [2] contains installer images that I am building manually.

Installation ISOs can be found in [3], always look for folder with the most recent date [3].

Note: Due to a technical limitation, the kernel of the netboot installer (not to confused with NETINST which is CD-based), may have issues finding kernel modules if the kernel module packages in the package archives mismatch the kernel in the netboot image. If that happens, the netboot images need to be rebuilt which I am trying to do on a regular basis.

PS: Feel free to invite the #debian-ports IRC channel on OFTC network if you have any questions to me or the other Debian developers working on the project.

No AmigaOS on this HDD... I wanted to use a PCMCIA CF drive with an ISO for installation but its not recognized...
Is there a way to install Debian over Network too? I guess I need some netinstall initrd.gz? I have no CDROM on my A1200...

Many ways to do this.Will you use AmigaOS too? Then you probably have some Amiga FFS partition?

You can put the iso on the AFFS partition, boot the installer kernel+image, and then go to a shell (alt+F2/F3...), mount the AFFS partition, loopback mount the iso to whatever location the installer wants it, and then go back to installer (alt+F1) and continue the installer as if you have a CDROM drive.
Hello all,

I've got some questions regarding Tabor hardware compatibility, and I haven't been able to find conclusive answers anywhere, so here I am asking, especially to any Beta Testers, or A-Eon/AmigaKit directly. I'm finding that trawlling through the related discussion threads with heated arguments (as is so common) just makes it impossible to get good straight technical information.

And emailing A-Eon directly and a beta tester here in Australia via his blog have resulted in no replies.

I'm looking to begin getting parts together for a Tabor system, so when the board comes out, I just have the 'small' expense of the board alone.

I'm having some issues on picking suitable hardware though, because the published specs leave some questions unanswered.

I was wondering if you'd be able to shed some light on a few questions?

The RAM is listed as DDR3 400MHz. Do I understand that this is the interface speed and suitable RAM is usually advertised as 800MHz, or PC3-6400? How well will faster RAM work in the slot? I have access to PC3-8500, PC3-10200 and PC3-12800. Will these all work ok?

Also some SODIMMs have an L in their 'name' like PC3L-10200. Is this a lower voltage SODIMM, and if so, are these suitable? Which voltage does Tabor support/expect?

How many SODIMM slots are there? It's hard to tell from photos, but I assume only one. Is this correct? If so, I haven't been able to find 8GB SODIMMs at that size, hence my question about higher speed RAM.

Is the MicroSD for UBoot supplies with the board? If so, what size will be shipped? Is the MicroSD an consumer card or industrial card? Is the Tabor board compatible with industrial cards? I'd like to consider having an industrial card for longevity of the stored data, so long term the board stays functional. Will end users be able to obtain the UBoot image to write to their own cards (like an industrial card)

Is the on-die SATA controller capable of interfacing with an SSD drive? Is there Trim support in firmware, or is there a recommended SSD to use for Amiga OS4.x (I have read that no Trim support exists in AmigaOS 4.x)

What is the max sized drives the on-die SATA controller can address? What is the max size boot 'partition' AmigaOS 4.x supports.

Is the 'internal' USB header v1.x, v2.x or v3.x generation? Is there just the one?

I assume a licensed copy of AmigaOS 4.1 FE will be included with the board. Does this include an installer medium, and if so, what will the medium be? Will a Linux distro included?

Would a 450w PSU be sufficient for a Tabor with 8GB SODIMM PC3-12800, an SSD, a DVD-RW, an internal card reader (powered by/running off the internal USB header) and a Radeon RX480 (for example)?

I still haven't tried and I don't know about the network. But if it's possible to install it on UAE then I would just do it with your disk drive attached to your PC/UAE setup. After, put the disk back in the Amiga and boot. Maybe someone with experience can advise you better.

I was trying the 68k version of the WarpBMP datatype (https://www.warpdt.co.uk/) to load a BMP picture into multiview using the 46.13 picture.datatype.  This is using Amiga native graphics (A4000T) and no graphic card installed.   

I am seeing the picture not loading correctly.  Top of screen is getting rendered incorrectly and then the whole system crashes with guru 8100 0005 after trying to quit multiview or right click for menus.

Attached is a photo of the screen after loading.
