Title: Update on AmigaOne A1222
Post by: xeno74 on November 24, 2016, 10:47:48 AM
AmigaOS 4.1 boots on the Tabor board: YouTube video (https://youtu.be/fMSvxQIfq2w)

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/proxy/G4Q6AZYPFwLZ6rotzbO04l4ls3tAmccddQfx-_WpYi9btODw4BJODQbQ5CqE4T2YiaWBvQl_b_FjXwvo1jH6p5KNOA=w530-h298-p)

The PowerPCSPE architecture is an official Debian port.

Two Tabor boards are working hard to create Debian PowerPCSPE packages: buildd.debian.org (https://buildd.debian.org/status/architecture.php?a=powerpcspe)

I was able to update MATE to version 1.16.1 on my Tabor board:

The new Mesa 12.0.3 for Debian Sid PowerPCSPE works on my Tabor board:

The WebKit web browser QupZilla 1.8.9 is available for the Tabor board:

FreeBSD is in development for the Tabor board: https://svnweb.freebsd.org/base/projects/powerpcspe/ (https://svnweb.freebsd.org/base/projects/powerpcspe/)

Er, okay. So is the hardware design complete or are tweaks still being made? Entering production soon? Has OS4 porting started? Estimate on when we can buy? I know, I know, we don't like to do time estimates in Amigaland, but are we thinking weeks, months, years?

The hardware was done awhile ago.
Developers have had the boards for around a year.

This is partially Hyperions fault AND the focus on getting the X5000 out.
That you are seeing this says a lot about how mature the X5000 port must be.

I get the humor in that, but I doubt it runs anything properly yet, and if it does its no doubt under Linux (which would make that package irritatingly available).

hmmI think SuperTux Kart would benefit from an FPU and I'm pretty sure the A1222 will have to do those instructions via software so if thats the case I don't think it would be running that fast when you have more than a few karts on the 'full' screen ? though I hope some beta tester or future owner proves this wrong somehow

Same here. It's nice to see some progress, but how long until AmigaOS is fully usable considering it took them one year since the announcement to even make it boot (mostly) correctly?

Not if it's compiled to use the specific fpu on the tabor.

Nice progress report.

I hope Amiga UI/GUI improves drastically - I shudder the current look as it just looks 'old'.

Hope to see GUI like FLAT/metro style with advanced functions like Autodesk Sketchbook :

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QtJGkFQi0K0


Fully skinnable

From hardware point view -  would like to see full diagnostics for damaged components, health report. System restore IMAGE on CD/DVD why install files one by one on fixed hardware ?

Back lit keyboards & cases with engraved lit up boing ball etc to bring some class.

Linux benchmark suite to test most areas.

Games development suite
Emulation suite like EmulationStation /RetroPie to see which system can be emulated for a home theater/game emulation system.

The look and feel question is curious, since a legacy look is what most Amiga users apparently want.
Every time the discussion turns to comparisons of Workbench vs Ambient, that's what they keep repeating, that they want their desktops to look "Amiga-like" (as if using the same control icons and general method of operation isn't "Amiga-like" enough).

Fully skinable? - Ambient and Scalos have been for some time.

System diagnostics to replace faulty OS modules? Sounds like Windows, Linux doesn't do this well. Once corrupted I inevitably have to re-install it or go through some lengthy hands on diagnostics/analysis. ;-)

Personally I like the flat design, to me, it's much easier to the eyes and does not take focus from program functionality..
But for those who does not like the flat design, it's good that there are different skins :)

Why? Flat themes are one of my major objections to Windows 10 (along with the continuing downgrade of the Start menu).
I use Windows 7 Ultimate and Windows 10 Professional (and just retired a machine the required Vista - again I used Ultimate - yeah that Windows variant, which after much upgrading finally worked pretty much like Win7).

Frankly, I find the themes in Vista more pleasing to the eye, and Win7 is a great mid-point between problematic Win Vista, and the really sucky Win8/8.1.
Kind of the upgrade to WinXp that should have been introduced in the first place and one of the best looking and functioning Windows variants.

Win 10 can be annoying with its flat look. It took me a few minutes just to work out the changes in the appearance of Calculator so that I could cut and paste to that.

The opinion that flat themes prevent distraction from program content is just that, an opinion.

A good looking desktop involves all elements, and I just find flat themes far to stark and ugly.

@Iggy
Thoroughly agree about "flat" look. Asthetically, Windows Vista is the best looking version of Windows.  Mac OS has also gone away from the 3 dimensional look that it had up to Mavericks in favor of the "flat" look of ios devices which I don't like for real computers.  Hopefully Amiga OS4.2 will not copy Windows & Mac OS in this regard.

I think the same.  This is all subjective and a matter of taste, but IMO Windows 8, 8.1, and 10 are quite ugly.  I can see some of the appeal of the flat look, but I think even recent versions of mac OS have taken this too far (the close/minimize/zoom icons, for example).  I prefer subtle gradients, highlights, and shadows.

Amiga OS 4.x is maybe too close to Windows XP, but all they have to do is dial that back just a bit and not go entirely flat.  It still looks pretty good, considering how long it's been out there without visual change.

I like the clean look of BeOS.  and Haiku too.  Too bad BeOS failed and Haiku seems to not get past Alpha stages.

Amiga OS is decent but could use a little spicing up.

At least with OS4.1 you can go into GUI Preferences & change the appearances (3D, ZEN or FLAT) which is more than you can with Windows or Mac OS.

Yes, I just looked at the screenshot of Haiku on Wikipedia, and it is very clean and modern, without being too flat.  I'm not sure if Haiku is an exact pixel-by-pixel reproduction of the BeOS interface, but it doesn't look out of place among more modern UIs.  BeOS was ahead of it's time, maybe a little to far to be successful.  It reminds me of Amiga in that respect.

What does ZEN look like?  I googled around, but couldn't find anything.

I've debated buying a copy of AmigaOS 4.1 Classic and running it on FS-UAE, but at this point I'm holding out for an A1222.  Which brings this thread back on topic. :)

If you're curious and want to "preview" 4.1, it's very cheap to buy and try it under emulation before you decide whether it's worth buying actual hardware for. I'm running it in WinUAE, and it's surprisingly capable, especially with the UAE display driver. Not enough RAM and speed for heavy websites and apps, and no 3D acceleration of course, but you get a good "feel" for it.

Still a bit interested in the A1222, though my interest is kind of dropping off the longer it takes.

My interest in the A1222 is kind of morbid -- I think it might be the last Amiga, and I don't want to miss out on that, having been there at the beginning.  It sort of bookends everything.

Even so, I'm hoping for a successful jump to another architecture and a continuance of Amiga. I am aware of the enormous legal and technical obstacles that make this unlikely, but ... never give up! :)

At this point, the last introduction would appear to be the P5040 variant of the X5000, IF that gets produced.
But I too am gearing up toward the idea of one final PPC system (in this case either a P5020 or P5040 based X5000), running under MorphOS primarily, although I will install OS4.1.

These systems should last us awhile, as older Eyetech AmigaOnes and bPlan Pegasos 1 & 2 models are still in use.

Video drivers and other support should improve in the future, and hopefully we can concentrate on application software for awhile.

Aeon has stated it has plans for the future, the MorphOS team has announced an eventual shift to X64 that will take quite awhile, so for now we've reached a high point in our development similar to that which occurred when the original AmigaOne and Pegasos systems were released.

We have multi-core systems that could allow for future development, modern expansion slots to support newer video cards and accessories, and while we could use better USB support for USB 3.0, that's not too shabby.

Windows 10 theme reminds me of windows 3.1. Cut down eye candy but windows still seems to be able to run like a dog with threee legs at times. Going through the various settings screen causes the spinning wheel.

Because it's a product that allows you to use OS 3.1 (Amikit version) / OS 4.1 (Classic version) / Linux seemlessly on a laptop straight out of box and it is available now if imported from America! Commodore sold their inhouse LCD development division so this is a close as we've ever got to an Amiga laptop! That's why. The Tabor/A1222 is still unreleased without a release date with a problematic FPU at this point. Forgive me for getting excited about a product I can actually buy!

Doesn't just seem to be the FPU, I remember reading they hadn't gotten the Ethernet up and running either. The X5000 doesn't have working Ethernet either AFAIK, but at least there's room for a separate PCI-E NIC in there.

No but news of its possible release has been rumored for a number of months now and the project for MorphOS to appear on the X5000 has been on the cards for over a year.  When i spoke to one of the MorphOS people demoing 3.10 on an X5000 at Amiga 32 and enquired about its release, they told me it would be out by the end of the year.

29 days into the new year, we are still waiting.....

Patiently as always, like we do with any other piece of Amiga related hardware and software.....

I think what johnklos was perhaps getting at is that its a thread about the A1222 board rather than one of the A.L.I.C.E. threads?
Always happy to see new Amiga products make the light of day but a laptop is not what I'm watching this particular thread for either :)

Patiently as always, like we do with any other piece of Amiga related hardware and software.....


There is rally nothing else we can do, but wait.

But I am also a bit puzzled as to why they couldn't have picked sound and NIC chips that works already.

AFAIK FPU emulation is already running, but not optimized enough yet. But hey better to have something rather than nothing at all.

Well, the P1022 CPU has 2 ethernet controllers built in, so it makes sense to use those. It also makes sense to use its I2C port for an audio codec, thereby saving your PCIe bandwidth for the graphics card.

http://www.a1222plus.com/index.php was updated 4th of April 2020, almost two months ago. Would be nice with an update.

Oh, and the certificate on https://www.amisphere.com/download needs to be updated.

Amigaworld.net had the same problem and now the server is timing out.

Agreed. @amigakit - would you please care to comment? The Chinese factories are slowly beginning to open up, so I suppose that will potentially affect the roadmap/time plan in a positive way for your A1222 Early Adopters? In any case, a new update is called for - right?
