try looking at https://wiki.amigaos.net/wiki/UserDoc:BIOS to see if anything will help

Unfortunately that document is badly outdated... It does not help anyhow with X5000.

@joergQuote:
I don't know if you can disable auto-booting the default completely, but if you use something like
setenv amigabootmenu_timeout 30 saveenv
you have enough time to change it to another boot option.

Thanks for the tip... But changing the timeout did not open automatically the boot menu. It only delayed booting, just like adding animcycles. So, this is not the solution I am looking for...

Opening the 1st bootmenu automatically (X5000)
Just popping in
Just popping in


How can I set AmigaOne X5000 to open _automatically_ (without pressing a key) the first bootmenu? There must be a U-Boot variable for that, but which is it?

I use currently AmigaOS, Linux and MOS so randomly that it is impractical to have one default boot OS, and to have to reach the bootmenu via a keyboard key (which I usually forget to press at time, and have to reboot ;).

@jabirulo

Thanks, that was a good piece of advice! The culprit was 'WarpWebP.datatype' V. 45.5. I got it from OS4Depot, and it is quite fresh.

Edit: Also the 'WarpJPG datatype' which Eliyahu recommended makes Multiviewer to crash.

@eliyahu

Thanks for the tips! Warpview works nicely, but with WarpJPG datatype also Multiview seems to work with all jpg files.

The only issue left is why Multiviewer does not start at all,,, I remember it worked still a couple of years ealier. There must be some system update which has unstabilized it. But as I have not used Multivewer for a long time, I cannot say when this problem appeared.

Are there any reliable picture viewers for Amiga OS41? I cannot use Multiview as it crashes with many jpg pictures created with ImageFX (even with small ones), and currently Multiviewer cannot be opened at all in my X5000 (crashes immediately with GR 80000003, both from icon and cli).

One tip for PageStream users... If the 'Pagestream4.prefs' file gets corrupted (that happens usually once-a-year for me), Pagestream will freeze or guru when launched. That may happen even if you have not yourself edited and saved the prefs lately.

The cure is to delete that file, or replace it with a copy from a backup disk.

I don't quite understand your statement above though. How do you lose use of the 0 and 9 keys. All your doing is translating the multimedia keycodes, so they send the same codes the 0 and 9 key produce. Basically, your adding additional 0 and 9 keys. The normal 0 and 9 keys aren't affected at all and still work as normal.

Ah... I misunderstood how AllKeys does the translation, I thought it in the opposite way. Thanks for your clarification!-)

Use AllKeys to translate your volume up key to the 0 key and to translate the volume down key to 9. The zero and nine keys control MPlayers volume, so translating your multimedia keys to zero and nine works. I tested it on my system and it works great.

Thanks for the tip... I already thought that option but abandoned it as I would then loose the 0 and 9 keys which I need with other programs. But I noticed that In AllKeys Arexx commands can also be addressed directly to the Arexx port of MPlayer ('Mplayer.1'), without using 'rx' command and scripts. That seems to be the best solution for me, and there are no side effects if MPlayer is not running when pressing the multimedia keys.

As Joerg stated, Non VANILLA or RAWKEYS can't be mapped, but you can use AllKeys from OS4Depot to assign the media keys on keyboards. I have my multimedia volume keys mapped to control the volume level of both Nemosound and Mixer, (sometimes I switch between the two) so that they control the volume for all programs, including Mplayer.

I'm alredy using AllKeys, but I still cannot figure how to make MPlayer to use the multimediakeys directly... The only workaround I have found is to assign those keys to execute the included Arexx scripts which adjust the volume (RX 'VolumeDown.rx' and RX 'VolumeUp.rx'). Or is this the method you are using, too?

The dark side of using those scripts is that if you accidentally press the multimedia keys when MPlayer is NOT runing, rx will crash (8000003)!

@samo79

Is it possible to use the multimedia keys (Volume down and up) of a 110-key keyboard for volume control with MPlayer? How should they be defined? Does Mplayer understand the $xxxxxxxx key codes if used in the prefs file?

EDIT
I tested these lines in input.conf:

$800000EA volume -1
$800000E9 volume 1

Did not work .

Thanks... But isn't the v.2.7 included with OS4 the newest version, and thus probably the most stable one?

No, this is the first time I hear of it... Where can it be found? it was not on the OS4Depot, so is it a 68xxx program?

DiskMaster - bug fixes?

Who is currently ownig the rights for DiskMaster? Would it be possible to get some update for it? I do not miss any new features but the program (v. 2.7) crashes every now and them, so a bug-fix update would be wellcome.

PS. I know of course DOpus, but I don't like it... It simply feels clumsy, and some functions are missing (like 'update'). The original user interface of Diskmaster, with the functions in a column _between_ the file listings is the only 'correct' one for me !-)

Great Christmas present - thank you!-)

Has anyone been able to run Mplayer-Gui with this new version succesfully? M-Gui crashes ('8000 0003') every time I try (X5000).

Search with 'Duckduck' does not seem to work anymore with Odyssey. If I input any word in the search field, there appears only a blank page with this text on it:

"If this persists, please email us. Our support email address includes an anonymized error code that helps us understand the context of your search."

Is there any fix for this? The link defined on 'search engines' window is currently "https://duckduckgo.com/html/?q=%s".

Is there some where else to buy digital versions of software for OS4?

Alinea (https://www.amiga-shop.net/en/Amiga-Software:::29.html) has a few downlodable versions of OS4 software, e.g. Emotion.

Nice to meet you also on this forum!-)

Re: NVMe device driver

@geennaam

Thank you for clarifying the subject!

Further questions came to my mind, concerning partitions:

What happens when you copy a partition to a new location (with dd, RAWdisk, Gparted etc.) on a SSD? I suppose no 'garbage' is transfered to the new partition?

And when you delete a whole partition, what happens to the 'garbage' left after that operation? TRIM does not help anymore as there is no partition to work with. Is there some difference whether you use Mediatoolbox in AmigaOS or Gparted in Linux?

Re: NVMe device driver

@geennaam

I have a couple of questions:

1. Is there ANY speed advantege when using the most expensive NVMe SSDs, compared to the very chepest ones? Or are the bottlenecks of our system non-proportional and so severe, that even the cheapest ones can offer the maximal speed possible?

2. Samsung mentions in the specs of SSDs a feature named 'auto garbage collection', whereas e.g. A-Data and and WD do not. Is this feature of any help in our system without Trim support, or is it meaningless and not a reason to choose especially Samsung?
