AEROS for Pi beta7 public version available
« on: May 28, 2014, 07:06:48 PM »
Most important news:
It comes with 2D HW accelerated X11. No more black tearing if you move windows and accelerated scrolling.





Changelog for beta7:
Updated Linux system
- 2D accelerated window movement and scrolling (no black tearing anymore, faster)
added XBMC
- Access rPi GPU directly - after Exiting you need to press ctrl+alt+f2 and then ctrl+alt+f7 to get back to Wanderer-Screen
- Fixed disordered icons
- removed empty folders
- removed ._-files
- removed crashing stuff
- fixed ejecting external media from Linux-filemanager wich was broken
- added scrot command to take screenshots from shell
- cleaned some icons (fragments from nightly)

www.aeros-os.org
Go to public section to find the beta 7 download link.

The public release is missing the lx command which allows to launch Linux programs from Wanderer or AROS shell. You can still run them from Taskbar.

There is a chance to become AEROS for additional Platforms including lx-command:

Nifty!
I see my self picking up a Pi down the road.

Yes AEROS runs not too badly on the Raspberry Pi these days and you can now run DOPUS5.90 on it as well.

I can confirm that the ARM version from here http://www.dopus5.org/ runs without problems on mine.

Don't expect desktop PC performance from it, but its at least as fast as an 060/PPC equipped classic for running native AROS software.

Depending on your monitor you could maybe cheat like I did and get a Case for your Raspberry Pi that uses the VESA mounting bracket holes on the back of the monitor to allow you to attach it to the back.

That's how I side stepped the issue of no space for additional computers, so I could have a Raspberry Pi as well... I don't think my wife has even noticed I added an extra computer :-)

@dwyloc
yep, your comparison to a 060+PPC(233MHZ) is correct.
Next version will have a Pi optimized HTML5 compatible Browser so browsing should be a little bit better.
FullHD playback is done by HW and 3D games are working quite good.

I recently got a Pi and it reminded me how much Linux annoys me, so to Amiga-ize it is most welcome.

How do we install this image? Is it just a simple dd to the SD card?

To install the Image You Need to dd it to a sd Card as you would do with raspbian.
Noobs is mentioned here :

So the answer is no ; )

I didn't know they had that. I found one.
