Video: AROS 68K Booting
« on: November 18, 2010, 09:01:36 AM »
quick and dirty... the video codec is a mess...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=trPTaLJq1mM

The periodic "fuzz" is due to the compression, the actual graphical glitches should be familiar to Amiga users as what happens when a games does something weird (often unrecoverable)... The disk unfortunately has read errors so I stopped the video, but it is still great to see.

This is our first step away from the tyranny of Amia Inc. :)

Thought my medication has screwed up me eyes there for a moment, still a long way to go by the looks of it, but impressive non-the less... :)

I love the fact that in future, when someone asks where to find a kickstart ROM or a Workbench disk... Instead of suggesting eBay or illicit google searches... I can just point them to AROS :)

I hadn't looked at it that way but you right, I've still got a lot to learn about AROS but it's sure captured my interest now... :)

That is what I like to hear, a die hard classic user who's interest is now captured.

You won't even have to do that since we can hope AROS+WinUAE bundles that will just work out of the box.

Now you'll be able to tell you friend: "just download WinUAE here, it just works out of the box" and won't have to tell him.. "actually it's not that easy, you have to get a ROM, but I can give it to you.. then you need to get the WB disks,...", answer: "oh, nevermind, that's too complicated :("

Now that is good news for a tight fisted Scotsman like me... :biglaugh:

(but I was thinking more along the line of the bounties... :) )

Toni will ensure that :)

But this is also important for users with Amiga hardware! (be that original or one of the FPGA clones)

Sadly that is currently an all too common scenario :(

Given that Toni Willen is involved, and that he's made it *very* clear on the AROS dev mailing list that his primary motivation is to have something that works perfectly with WinUAE (including emulation of unexpanded smaller classics) this one is virtually certain. Just a matter of time.

Again, we can hope to have the clones bundled with their own AROS "ROM"/OS, so it would run out of the box, no need to dump and install a new copy of the ROM.

That's more Amiga-like: just plug it in, turn it on, and voila! :) Ins't it ?

Im actually interested to see what sort of 68k "amiga" os distro type packages come as a result of this. Surely it's of interest to the guys doing things like Amikit,AmigaSys, and so on. Not that I use them myself (I like to set things up myself), but it does open up a few doors for 68k amiga os distros (live booting cds for example).
Near as I can tell this is where I write something under the guise of being innocuous, but really its a pot shot at another persons/peoples choice of Amiga based systems. Unfortunately only I cant see how transparent and petty it makes me look.

Once AROS is fully ported, wonder if we will see a AROS32 created.  Guess the main question is on being able legally purchase some of the better game titles from their current IP holders.  Less some type of direct internet sales from the current IP holders is possible to set up to the end user with some DRM.
