Thanks. Being able to get a recent version of Debian up on my Sam440 will be nice.

I have a partition left of 500 G.
I would like test linux on my sam440.
Would you tell me which link I should use for download ?
And which Linux is better ? Debian or Ubuntu ?

My interest about Linux is to use a more modern browser.

Thanks

New Sam460ex Ubuntu 12.04 installer by Spectre660

Supports Radeon HD cards up to HD4000 series and the console output via the Sam460ex onboard graphics card.
This one allows you to install Ubuntu using the onboard sm502 graphics card so you dont need a second computer or serial cable.

Download and support: http://forum.hyperion-entertainment.b ... c.php?f=52&p=24052#p24052

Spectre660 has done a fantastic job in getting Linux to work properly the Sam series. Everything works really well on my 460, including sound via a Julia card. Whilst Firefox works well and can be tweaked I recommend users install Opera v 10.63 PPC, it blows FF away for speed and I haven't even tweaked it yet, LibreOffice works well and quite fast as does Thunderbird, printing setup is a breeze with support for a vast range of modern printers. A big big thank you to Spectre660.

+ 1000

I tried that 2 days ago and it was nice to see Ubuntu running on my Sam460. It still feel slow but it's always the case when moving from AmigaOS to Linux

After a lot of testing I would recommend installing LXDE rather than KDE. LXDE is significantly faster and operapretty well flies on it as well as the usual suite of high end programs (LibreOffice, Thunderbird etc ) which you can install individually. I now stay away fro Firefox as that in particular is veryslow, everything else is quite ok.

A couple of notes:

I had to amend /etc/X11/xorg.conf to include the resolution I wanted (1024x768 as I am an old bastard), the default was 1650x1050 to high and slow for me and was set by default.

I also had to add my account to 'audio" group to get Pulse audio working ok.


Also note Spectre660 has also noted problems with the latest iso which includes support for x5000 and x6000 cards for fresh installs so please wait for the new release.

You know me I always liked playing with whatever my Miggy could cope with. I remember the days I had my XE running Linux and MOL (Mac 9.2)until I touched too much and broke it and you helped sort it out!

I even have 2 x MOS Macminis (me the MOS AntiChrist of yester year) although thinking about relieving myself of one. The strange thing is I don't really play any games or anything, I just like to see where the HW/SW/platforms take me.

I have already isntalled the latest Linux 3 times (takes hours for KDE) and pushed til broken but hey thats life in Amiga land.

Hope you are keeping well, loved seeing you in the Amiwest photos.
