Intuition.library v45 not installing for me.
« on: January 18, 2019, 05:02:47 PM »
I am trying to copy the v45 intuition.libary from the 3.1.4 modules disk on my A3000 and it doesn't appear to install at least version command does not show it to be updated.
I have gone as far as backup the original intuition.library, delete it and then copy over version 45 and it still shows I have version 40

What am I doing wrong?
Amiga 3000 16Mhz NTSC
2MB Chip - 16Mb Fast
Cybervision64 RTG -Picasso96 driver
3.14 Roms installed

Intuition library is in rom, so it diesn't matter what is in libs. You need to load it with loadmodule etc command.

Make sure the V45 version is correctly named as "intuition.library", and resides in LIBS:, that is, without the "-v45" in the file name. Also, you need to make sure that you "LoadModule" this library in your startup-sequence, e.g.

Code: [Select]
LoadModule LIBS:intuition.library

in the startup-sequence will do that for you. Note well: If you are using Cybergraphics, you cannot use the V45 version of intuition.

I have the renamed intuition.library in libs, I had modified my startup-sequence but my amiga just does a continuous reboot, thats why I was thinking maybe I had the wrong version.
attached is a copy of my startup-sequence. Ignore the .intuit extension. I added that because this version of my startup-sequence will not allow the machine to boot.
I had to restore my previous startup-sequence to get the machine to boot.
I am using version 2.2 Picasso96 driver.
Is there something wrong with the startup-sequence?

What type of a system is this, and which type of hardware is installed there?

You may optionally try to add the following options to LoadModule:

HEADERFORWARDS

or

ALLTOCHIP

Its an Amiga 3000, stock other than the Cybervison64 graphics card. Chip and Fast are maxed out. NTSC version
I installed the SCSI2SD card with a 4GB card.

Are you using the MuLib libraries?

Both HEADERFORWARD and ALLTOCHIP works. I left my startup-sequence using HEADERFORWARD.
Before using those options it would boot once with just LoadModule, but if I rebooted it would continuously reboot.
I would have to pull the power and hold down the power button to drain ram and then it would boot again.

I am now getting the correct version of intuition.library and am able to drag windows off the screen.
Thanks Thomas!!
So what are these options doing differently to fix my issue?

As far as these options are concerned: They place the reset-resident part of LoadModule in a different memory area. It seems, for reasons beyond me, the regular "end of memory" allocation for the reset-resident part is not working as something - and I do not know what - overwrites parts of LoadModule and then make it inoperational. I have not yet worked out the details.

The MMULib kicks in with SetPatch, and hence after LoadModule. Hence, it is not in play at the time loadmodule is loaded.

BTW, these options are also mentioned in the FAQ.

I have been following this thread with interest. The new intuition library works fine on my A4000, but my rev 6a A500 with 2MB MegAChip, ACA500 and a 16 Gig CF cards gurus every time I enable it, even with the fixes mentioned above. Just wondering if others with the ACA500 have the same issues

Try adding this lib to your libs folder
