@K-L

Test software that I've written and cross-compiled on OS X... nothing more!

FS-UAE implements the WinUAE PPC core doesn't it? Well at least the recent development versions do.

FS-UAE

There should be a build for MacOS or Ubuntu or whatever you're running. I plan to ditch my SAM440 once I have a nice stable version of 4.1 running on my MacBook Pro.

anyone can just grab latest svn from branch_v1, build if for yourself and use already with no problems.


Great work Roman, however, I can't seem to build it using my OS X cross-compiler setup, I get a link error:

ppc-amigaos/bin/ldcannot find -lamiga


I'm assuming I'm missing a link library here in my setup, but everything else compiles fine. Does it compile with newlib or with clib?

Again, thanks for your work on this!

BTW, I think Trixie is correct, you should reply to all messages.

There's nothing wrong with mason's work.

Holding back stuff like global settings for selected image effects and icon emblems just to satisfy his need for perfection however is as wrong as it can be.

Streamlining theming and reducing the work needed to create icon themes will benefit the platform. Holding back stuff like this will not.

(NOTE: The openamiga specification allows for both system defaults and hard coded images)


Yeah, I see no problem with having global settings to apply these things if need be, I mean, why wouldn't you? Can't we have both? I think the global settings and icon emblems would be a great idea too.

You see, this is one of the major problem's in Amiga-land as I see it; people are willing to put up with less-than-perfect/shoddy looking work.

If Mason wants to spend his time perfecting every icon then I can see nothing but gains for the people who will see and use them! His dedication to attention to detail is benefitting everyone. What does it matter to other people if all he wants to do is make sure something looks as good as possible? It's his time and his energy!

Spit and polish, and great attention to detail, go a long way in making your product stand out from the crowd. That's what AmigaOS needs.

For example, take a look at A-EON's website (I don't mean to single this out, it just popped into my head as a typical example), and ask yourself the question "Do I think that looks good?". I will wager that most people in Amiga-land will say "Hell, yeah, that's great" when really, the answer should be, "God damn, that is one horrible looking website, straight out of 1995, change it PLEASE!".

Oh, and don't get me started on the abomination that is the 'ReAction' GUI toolkit; Mason's icons are the single most beautiful thing about AmigaOS 4 at the minute and he's making them BETTER.

In closing, I know everyone is entitled to their opinion, and that's fine, this is only my opinion, but lay off telling the guy what he should and shouldn't be spending his spare time doing, especially when it benefits us all.

You know what Slash, sod to see how you trying to help.


I'm trying to help, by spending some of my very little, precious, spare time fixing source code for you!

Quote:
If person do nothing, why we should keep him ? Of course we keep only active ones, to not make ppls assume that another ones works on it, while they not.


If you only keep "active" ones, who clearly have more spare time than some other people (who have 12 hour day full time jobs, families etc) then why come begging on a forum for help.

Do you pay me £60k a year to work on your source code? If you want to do so, then yeah, I'll quit my job and put the effort into your "projects".

If you want a bit of help now and again, which you're always asking for, to tidy source code, fix bugs and refactor small pieces of code to make the project better then I was willing to do that as and when I could.

Yes, it might not be as often as you liked, but that's the offer was, and that's the way it's got to be.

However, as I said in my PM, that offer is now rescinded!

Quote:
And its not my code, i just to not want that code on which 3 persons works for half of year, was "refactored" by someone who even didn't discuss it with another ones, and do not think if it should be os3/mos/aros compatibility, but just want to commit.


I'm not as stupid to commit something that I'm likely to break, I know fine well that adding a couple of GetHead/GetSucc calls is NOT going to break os3/mos/aros compatibility!

I fixed nigh-on 40 warnings, on top of other things, which wouldn't make the slightest difference to the compatibility.

What about all of the source code you blindly commit to the repository, copying and pasting from snippets of code posted on a forum?

On a final note, no one is crying, I'm way passed caring about your port now, so you can please yourself what you do with the source code. For me, as I have an interest in Magellan, I think I'll just work on a local OS4 version in my spare time to see what I can come up with.

Happy coding!

@kas1e

You know what Kas1e, sod it with trying to help you.

I've checked out, tidied up, and tested a sh*t load of code in that filetype.module source code and you're not even going to give me write-access to the repository "in case I break something".

I even refactored that 'Free Nodes' code that's already been mentioned above with proper GetSucc/GetHead etc.

Why ask for help when all you want me to do is send you source code fragments in an email or post them on to a forum. Even if I do break it, which is pretty much impossible, then the whole point of SVN is to roll back to a different version.

Good luck keeping your precious source code to yourself!

Yes, this is true, but I have very little spare time these days. I will try and help when I can but I can't commit to lots of time. That's just the way it is unfortunately.

Hi kas1e

Would love to help, but does this thing compile with a cross-compiler right now? If so then I can offer you some help with porting and compiling.

Regarding your second error below, has the list been initialised correctly with NewList()?

Let me check the source out and see if I can get a better look at it.

I love Magellan; it, in every way, is light years ahead of the standard Workbench, OS4.x version included.

I just need some spare time and I'd glady use it all on helping get this magnificent beast brought up to date, with fixes and new features!

YAM also uses AmiDock (I think) and its source code is available on SourceForge, but I agree that AmiDock is pretty rubbish, having tried to write docky code myself.

Re: Boing Pi?

Anyone with half a brain would quickly see that getting OS4 onto the RaspberryPi would be a stroke of genius... it's built for OS's like AmigaOS and what better way to allow AmigaOS to spread than to have it available on hardware that costs £35!

Was AmigaOS not already ported to ARM ages ago too?

As for the Pi not being designed to be a platform for a mainstream OS; that's perfect, we don't have a mainstream OS in our hands, we have a niche OS, and this is a niche platform. They go hand in hand and this could seriously raise AmigaOS's profile.

Am I missing something here, or what...

Re: DVI-D on SAM440
Just popping in
Just popping in


Just an update for anyone who's interested.

First, thanks for all of the comments and recommendations. I've finally got my SAM440EP up and running in it's brand new, and very tiny, Jetway JC203... silent and cool!

I opted for a 20" HP monitor with DVI and it works very well at 1600x900x32. That's plenty enough for me.

Just migrating all of my stuff from the A1, well the development data anyway, so I'll be able to resume my Amiga programming projects.

What to do though...

Go to top


DVI-D on SAM440
Just popping in
Just popping in


As my SAM440 is now on it's way, I need to buy a new monitor to hook up to it... the one I've found only has a DVI-D connector.

Would this be suitable for connecting up to the SAM440, which I believe has a DVI-I? I've read they are compatible in some cases if the correct signals are sent.

Also, the max screen res would be 1920x1080 but the SAM, via DVI, would only do 1600x1200 maximum resolution. Are there any consequences of scaling resolutions etc? I thought LED monitors were only supposed to run at a certain resolution or things would look a tad blurry?

Any help would be appreciated!

Yeah, I see the flex is still available but it's a mini ITX board that I'm after, nothing bigger unfortunately.

If only I could upgrade my Micro's graphics card so the output doesn't look like you've just smeared vaseline all over the lense of your eye then I'd be fine!

SAM440ep Availability

Does anyone know the current availability of the SAM440ep? Are they still produced? Does anyone have any in stock?

I'm looking to replace my Micro A1 and only want a basic MiniITX board to start up my Amiga development again (I have a Mac for everything else).

TIA
Daniel
