Hmmm...  that was the latest build (afaik) downloaded last week.

Did you get a requester whilst it was booting up asking you to specify which screen type to use?
Mac Mini G4 (1.5GHz, 64MB VRam, 1GB Ram): MorphOS 3.6
Powerbook 5.8 (15", 1.67GHz, 128MB VRam, 1GB Ram): MorphOS 3.8.

Windows-free since 2011-2014 (Damn you Netflix!)

I tried the live CD on my laptop.  I can't remember the error exactly, but it was asking me to select the screenmode from a list, and none of them worked :-(.

Haven't tried it out on the desktop yet, but will give it a try soon.


Some of the nightly builds might not work! as for choosing screenmodes if you dont have nvidia/ati card choose the Vesa one and it (should work) also dont try using usb mice (and keyboards) unless you can turn on USB emulation in BIOS! we dont have USB support yet.

I don't think that you're fair to hyperion, eyetech etc... AROS is... well nice... but AOS 4 feals like years ahead of it. It's really very, very nice. I simply love it. Yes I've been using WinUAE on a modern PC and it's like a mix between my a4k with a Voodoo 4, SB 128, networkcard CSPPC with a 060 and a 233MHz PPC and my A1... It's slower than my A1 but faster than my a4k... and it isn't even close to the fun that I got with my A1.

AOS 4 is AOS only so much better than 3.9. I can't believe that any solution can bring back the amiga feeling in a way that AOS 4 can.

IMHO offcourse ;)

Sure OS4 is ahead of AROS in features etc =) but its future is uncertain! i myself also have a Pegasos2 with MOS and its  also way ahead of AROS but unless something magical happens there as well i dont see it having much of a future! and thats my opinion :).

Ok, then I'm the idiot.

Can someone please tell me where I can order either

1. A new crispy PPC machine and AOS4

2. A fresh smelling PPC machine and MorphOS

3. A fast, fully functional x86 version of any Amiga OS version


I am up to go to the next experience, but I never have any real idea where any of this mess stands.  I suspect that many diehards do, but as a former hardcore nut with 3000s, 4000s, 1200s, and a few odd machines here are there, I simply have no idea what's going on or what are my options TODAY.

I am NOT stuck on PPC hardware especially seeing as the train left the station and is going going gone.

If I can grab an old Thinkpad and slap an OS4 or something close without windows, I will be in nirvana.

Fair? Take a look at the trio`s awful past, they have been praised and supported throughout the lies, cheating, scaming etc but it`s all right. Lets all turn a blind eye and everything will be alright.

But nothing is alright, OS4 is going nowhere because the "true supporters" supported stupid companies and their stupid 80s ideas. To make matters worse the "true supporters" trashed all attempts what would push the Amiga out of closed hardware shell in to the real world.

For me the USB driver is more important than an installer :-)

There is acctualy a semi working PPC version of AROS =) so those die hard PPC fanatics can run it as well if they want to keep it up 2 date with the x86 version.


With major changes going into AROS kernel for x86_64 which will be back ported to x86, it maybe a good thing that PPC (or ARM for that matter) is slow going.  The new kernel should have very significant impact (for the better) on their porting project.  Modular kernel that actually uses the MMU. :crazy:
