To install any Linux app you need to use aptitude or apt-get

One way:
Right click on tint2 will launch the Debian Menu -> choose synaptic

Another way: right click on tint2 -> Debian Menu -> terminal -> type "aptitude install "yourappofchoice"

This will install it to the Linux side.
So if you like to have an icon for it in AROS you need to do the following:

Start AROS shell
type "edit "nameofapp""
type "lxout "nameofapp"
Save as "nameofapp" without any suffix.

Get an png (icon from google) rename it to "nameofapp" wit suffix ".info"
Place it in the same folder as the editet script.

This is the handmade way. I will offer a bunch of predone icons so you just need to use aptitude to get the Linux binaries if desired.

Is Broadway-X a free download somewhere? Not the Pi one but for a PC? I really like the idea of AROS and Linux apps like Chromium on the same desktop

The fragmentation of AROS is getting offputting.  Seems there's 5 different variants of it, can someone tell me where to obtain a non vm, non other OS hosted version I can simply install on this old AMD X2 box I built?

http://www.icarosdesktop.org

it's that simple really, if you don't like that one there's two more to choose from.
So there's no fragmentation at all. Just three different distributions.
AmigaOS or MorphOS on x86 would sell orders of magnitude more than the current, hardware-intensive solutions. And they\\\'d go faster. --D.Haynie

Only 4 I can think of:

Icaros (non hosted)
Broadway (non hosted)
Broadway X (hosted)
AspireOS (non)

Question for me is why there needs to be 3 non-hosted versions?

why having Amikit and lightweight distributions on 68k? It is a matter of taste, some want much installed, big functionality, others more or less only a base installation. The problem (or better opportunity) of Aros is that it covers a wide range of hardware platforms and because the "nightly builds" are only basic you need distributions for the end-user. So basically there are 2-3 distributions for X86 (Icaros, AspireOS (dedicated to Netbooks/Notebooks and Broadway-X). For ARM there is now Broadway-X (f.e. tablets), for 68k my "Aros Vision". So the split is only the result of the various uses and the flexibility. The opposite is in the PPC camp (AOS, MorphOS) where only very limited hardware is supported. I prefer the situation of Aros with competition and flexibility. Think about what situation you prefer?

Cheers for the advice on which to choose, I was having a hard time making sense of what does what, and I am after an installable version, don't need/want a hosted or live version.

Thanks, will give Icaros a shot!

So it's a Debian distro underneath?

Yes.  (Assuming you are talking about Broadway X.)

Hi,
yes it is debian underneath (find it very comfortable to use)

For x86 i am now testing how DragonflyBSD is working on the last AresOnes...

I will coop with OlafSCH who did the AROS Vision (68k) distro.

A debian based ISO will come at first (june since i need to reorganize webspace, buy additional and traffic... Broadway X downloads have exceeded my limit)

Broadway X alone (the hosted distribution) can run on every Linux.
I am considering to use the name AEROS again to make the difference between Broadway X and the full UNIX/AROS hybrid-iso clear.....

Still not shure about this...

very old booting the ISO video

A how to install AEROS (old)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=09RdJme4z4k&list=UUUzG5OUZ3TNHSzjab9ENVjg&index=9&feature=plcp

Please be patient, i am really busy and real life has slow downed a lot. But it comes.

And if someone thinks i am acting strange agains Clusteruk... i was just pissed that he gets all whooos and aaaahhh and people are applauding him for bringing AROS to the pi.. ok.. why not : ) He did?

Whatever.. I was more pissed of because he was rushing ahead publically with the anouncement of selling sd-cards.. whooaaa .. i hoped he could have just asked before doing this. Everyone aks. I ask Paolo, Niko, Olfaf and vice versa.

So, yes i was pissed off. So excuse my "strange looking" behaviour on some forums. I hope you can understand me a little. If not.. doesn't matter ; )
I will stop moaning around.

So how is this turning out?
Anyone tried it yet?

I think it is a good way to get started on AROS hosted.

I have downloaded the DVD (r3) image a few hours ago and you don' t want to use it that way. Openbox was the window manager, the resolution was low and the gfx-driver sub-standard. But that's not the whole story:

if you unsquash the boot image you can run AEROS from any Linux distro within minutes. Just go to squashfs-root/usr/share/AEROS/boot and run AEROSBootstrap. OFC you have to do some linux-setup (tunneling?) yourself, but it looks like this is an easy road to use AROS hosted. I have never done this before and it runs so much faster and cleaner than AROS under VM.

I will definitely spend more time with AROS in the future thanks to AEROS.

Hi,

AEROS comes with no drivers (not exactly true, but for most of you). As soon you install the right one it is far better. Livemode is just for installation purposes. Openbox is needed, else some stuff isn't working. Mouse will else stop inside AROS.. this way you can just move over AROS and Linux windows without trouble.

About PPC:
I have it running on the powermac of my daughter.. but to be honest:
PPC AROS comes with not much apps... Vice is available..

Linux PPC lacks also some modern software but I got an outdated Wine build to work
0.5.5....

All in all i am not really interested to move my fingers for only 2 or 3 persons.
If their is "really" interest i could do it. If someone likes to take /help with it, fell free to contact me.
