Re: Qt 6 progress

@alfkil

Well, meanwhile you'll wait to have such an important answer, you could take a break from that monster and try to port a STL 3D model viewer based on QT:

I have tested it on my PPC64 linux machine and they have provided a patch for big endian CPUs

Re: First user's report of new Intel HD Audio (Azalia) driver by geennaam

@billt

Uhm, just tried on my AmigaOS 4.1 FE Update 2 installation using QEMU 6.0 with no luck.

Used the latest archive on os4depot then launched the usual QEMU command adding "-device intel-hda"

qemu-system-ppc -machine sam460ex -m 2G -rtc base=localtime -device intel-hda -device ide-hd,drive=disk,bus=ide.0 -drive file=amigaos_4.1_fe_upd2.img,format=raw,id=disk

as it did not work, tried adding "-device intel-hda -device hda-output", again with no luck

qemu-system-ppc -machine sam460ex -m 2G -rtc base=localtime -device intel-hda -device hda-output -device ide-hd,drive=disk,bus=ide.0 -drive file=amigaos_4.1_fe_upd2.img,format=raw,id=disk

On the AHI prefs still no HD audio device shows up

I find AmigaOS 4.1 a great fun to use, and to enjoy it more, I personally don't care too much about the noise made by always the same well know people.
Sure, the situation could have been better, but it could also be worst with such a small user base.
Sure, more and more people are running away from it, and it is a shame, because the system is simply great.

It is mostly thanks to people like you, a user that spend his spare time to solve practical issues, that the system gets a more usable environment.

I personally thank you a lot for your contribution, and hope that you still be able to enjoy the platform even if it has its own twists.

Re: Stack USB 3.0 for OS4 at Pianeta Amiga 2012

Does anybody knows anything about the USB 3 stack that was announced back in 2012?

Wondering whether its source code (even unfinished/not working) could be shared in order to support the USB 3 controller chip mounted on the PowerPC notebook board (see https://www.powerpc-notebook.org/campa ... three-working-prototypes/).


The chip selected for the notebook is the Renesas μPD720201
https://www.renesas.com/us/en/products ... 01-usb-30-host-controller

You can buy a PCIe x1 card based on this chip for about € 30 / USD 36.

@walkero

> should we put more effort on projects that are public and open source, instead of following companies and major players?

I think open source initiatives and business driven companies are both fundamental components that may advance the platform.
Sure, sometimes they may extremely diverge in the internal mechanism that drive each action, but when they work together a great results can be achieved.
This is particularly true for the hobbyist Amiga platform, where the market barely sustain the very few remaining companies that try to live on such a niche market.

There should be close cooperation between the two environments when a common goal cannot be achieved by one party alone, the alternative is wiping out completely any attempt to continue the development on anything "next generation" and consequently fall back in the retro-computing.

I am telling this because is the main reason that got me involved in the PowerProgressCommunity (https://www.powerprogress.org/) because I wanted a notebook with AmigaOS 4.1 and there was no company openly pursuing that goal. This is a concrete community driven action that tells the existing companies what do we want.
So far, the cooperation with the guys at ACube Systems has been great. PowerProgressCommunity alone could not go that far, and the same is valid for ACube, they couldn't afford to undertake the notebook project alone.

Sure, when I see that only 60 people are financially (https://www.powerpc-notebook.org/campa ... three-working-prototypes/) supporting the project of having the most powerful Amiga ever in a notebook form factor is not what I have hoped for, nevertheless we still are progressing.

I am advertising the project with this post?
Definitely yes.

Successfully tried many shaders on my 10 years old Sam460ex equipped with a RadeonRX 560 and it look awesome!

Thank you guys, ShaderJoy is simply impressive, and the shaders pack made available by kas1e provide a good selection of ready to use examples.

Just a question: why the GPU animation freeze when I move any icon on the workbench?

Re: X11 Forwarding via AmiCygnix?

@cygnusED
yes, you are right, using SSHterm I can already launch a remote app on Amigygnix, however I don't know how to open it on a dedicated window on the workbench, and I must add every time the destination display, whereas I would like only to enter the name of the app and nothing else.

@NinjaCyborg
Yes, for an RDP server on linux you need to install "xrdp" then you connect to it. You need a fast connection to end up with a pleasant experience, but Linux and the Amiga should be on the same LAN attached using an ethernet cable.

@cygnusED

Being able to use remote X11 apps on a local display greatly improve the ability to use AmigaOS on a everyday life basis.

I have tried and succeed to open remote apps on the Amicygnix as explained in this thread, however that was a bit tricky, and I do not understand how to open such an app on a dedicated window on the workbench instead of opening that app in the Amigygnix desktop (see screenshot above by @smf), much like you are able to use Amicygnix apps such as Abiword in "standalone" mode. Do you know how to do that?

Could include in a next Amicygnix release:
- a guide on how to use remote apps with Amicygnix
- a new GUI to manage allowed IPs instead of editing "Cygnix:CygnixPPC/etc/X0.hosts"?

As a further improvement, I would love to see more integration between SSHterm by Fredrik Wikström and Amicygnix.

It would be great to simply type the name of an app in SSHterm while connected on a remote Linux host and see that app appearing in a dedicated and re-sizable window on the workbench using the Amicygnix X11 display capabilities.

@mritter0

Hope the Oculus Quest still as enjoyable as it was at the beginning, and that you did not fall into the 3D universe completely and still have time to do some coding ;)

During these long days of self isolation at home here in Italy I am learning Python and I would love to do some testing on AmigaOS using a convenient editor like yours.

Do you have any news about it?
I just had a look at the videos record last October and your tool looks exactly what I would need
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fh2cTu0WQ3U

Are you planning to integrate some sort of quick method for launching an interpreted script (i.e. Python, Hollywood, Perl, PHP) directly from the editor?

Would it be possible to have the hostname/IP and the user name in the title bar so when we have multiple windows opened one can spot the correct window to use?

How can I support your work on this?
Is that correct if I donate using the PayPal button at http://www.a500.org/ ?

I would *LOVE* to use a modern text editor on AmigaOS!!
I am ready to support it!

I am an addicted Notepad++ user and use quite a lot the functions offered by the TextFX plugin, and would love to see some of them implemented in a future release.
See available functions in the following animated gif

Thanks for pushing in improving SDL2!

By chance, has anyone tried porting the SDL2 based game called "Pingus"? It is a Lemmings clone that seems quite nice.

@Helloworld
Thank you for the advice.
Having a look at it now, not bad indeed, but our choice was not to have any intermediary (and thus, their fee), apart from PayPal that fulfill the required needs.

The fund is not stagnant at all, as what we collected so far is already being passed to the engineer for the mobo design, and periodically we check together with ACube the current advancements.

The guys behind the PowerPC notebook project that are collaborating with ACube are asking for a last round of support.
The laptop will be equipped, among other features, with a PowerPC CPU NXP T2080, an M.2 connector for the SSD, an MXM connector on a PCI-e 3.0 lane for the video card, and will have space for two DDR3L modules.

Here the latest post on their blog: Electrical Schematics as a present.

As of today, they reached the 67% of the required €12,600 goal for delivering the electrical schematics.

Here the donation campaign page, you may use PayPal.

They just launched another project for which they are looking for volunteers: the Open Source Laptop Chassis Designs

Here a simplified diagram of what the electrical schematics will try to achieve [click to enlarge]

Skia Graphics Library anyone?
Just popping in
Just popping in


I was playing with Google Docs and noticed that they are using the Skia Graphics Library for producing PDF.
Bit of investigation on the topic and discovered that it is the graphic library used for building Chrome, Firefox and Android.
It has software rasterizer, OpenGL ES, and PDF backends, and has been designed to take advantage of modern day SMD multiprocessing capacities.
Skia can be built using GN, Visual Studio, XCode, and CMake.

Has anybody tried experimenting with it and possibly tried to build it under AmigaOS4?

Here the SKIA website
https://skia.org/
and the Wikipedia entry
