Re: Simple wishlist for next AmigaOS
Just popping in
Just popping in


I hope there'll be a new AmigaOS release (4.2) in time for the X1000 launch.
The updates are of course welcome, but Hyperion aren't making any money out
of them. My Micro is gathering dust at the moment, due to it won't boot from
harddisk anymore.

About the subject of this topic 'Simple' wishlist. I think the demands are
set quite high, Java etc. I doubt we will see such 'big stuff'.

@netrot

I've never heard of anyone managing to run 1GB RAM without problems.
Have you noticed any thing?

What is the specification of the chip?

I've only got 256 MB RAM and it quickly runs out, especially with OWB.
32MB of Video RAM drains also very quickly with compositing. Shame it's
not possible to use Fast ram for the gfx.

@orgin

I also want to thank Joerg for OWB, without it we still
would be stuck with IBrowse. Thanks to OWB we have been
able to browse modern sites as they are as supposed
to look like.

It's sad to see that development will stop, but Joerg has
put in so much work into OWB; I think it's three different
code base generations where he has had to start from
scratch each time and add back in the features.
Joerg can't be expected to support OWB continually for
years on end. So I think he's well deserved for a big break from OWB.

As far as I know, the only real complaint with OWB has been
the absence of the Download Manager. But it's not really
needed.

Thanks again to Joerg for his tremendous work.

Re: Amiga History: Cloanto promised OS4 software?

@emeck

I agree, it would be nice with an out of the box OS 3.1 workbench on
OS 4.1.

I wonder if there'll be another major OS release for OS 4.x, or if we've
seen the last.

@cutter

It sounds like you've downloaded it from the main UBoot site.
That won't work.

You need to download the specific Amiga U-Boot firmware from Hyperion's website.

Re: AmiUpdate?

@Rigo

AmigaOS 4.1 update 1 brought together many third-party
programs, some of your own, as well as AISS and the OpenAmiga pointers.

Why coulnd't AmiUpdate have been added as well to the update? I see it as a perefectly good candidate. But I
might be missing some crucial information here.

Of course, this AmiUpdate would NOT have access the
system beta files.

Anyway, many thanks for your hard work on the OS
as well as CodeBench, and of course AmiUpdate.

Regards,
Kotler

Re: Locale.. feature?
Just popping in
Just popping in


@Amigo1

AFAIU, the main developer for this part of the OS,
Detluf Wuerkner (Locale/CharSet etc.), left the team in 2007. This may very well explain why there's
no new development in this area. But it seems strange
that no remaining developer could have a look at this bug.

@Rigo

Integration of DiskImage sounds great, the less
configuration I need to do in the OS, the better.
I'm really looking forward to Amiga OS4.1 update 1.

On the subject of OpenAmiga, can you confirm whether
the extended pointer set also has been integrated? OWB
uses it for example, and that's bundled with the OS.

I was under the impression that J?rg was working
hard on finalizing the OS4.1 update. Also, with the
announcement on FireFox, I thought he was part
of that effort, with his expertise in porting stuff
from other platforms. And thus, it didn't make any
sense to continue working on OWB.

It made perfect sense to me, but all doom gloomers
seem to think otherwise...

Re: Listbrowser extension

@orgin

I think the main problem is that there is a listbrowser gadget already in the OS. IMHO, that's where the
improvements should be added. Coding a new gadget
seems like a very complex task for little gain.

Sorry...

Re: Ibrowse status?

@Deniil

It would be about time for a v2.5 release of IBrowse.
In December, it's been 3 years since the last release.
As far as I can gather, I believe Oliver Roberts is hacking away on IBrowse and fixing/adding things.

I hope the new version includes configurability
hand pointer etc. Much like the Open Amiga pointer
package.

There is an IBrowse newslist on Yahoo Groups, where
you can see the occasional snippet about the development
of IBrowse.

Re: Installing JXFS

@ChrisH

I think there still are OS 4.x people who run FFS, me included.
I had a lot of problems with getting OS 4.x to run in the
beginning (micro-A1 in 2004), so I haven't dared to change
anything since then. But maybe I should give SFS a try, at least.

Re: Software for OS 4.1 peripherals

@diamond

The only option left is to write them yourself.

What you should do is check what drivers exist before
you buy any extra peripherals.

I know there are scanner drivers available for Amiga,
but I don't remember what makes they were for.
ScanQuix is the name, if I'm not completely mistaken.

Re: how to disable Grim/DSI window ?

@kas1e

The quick n' dirty solution to "disabling" the Grim Reaper
is to go into SYS:System and then delete or rename the
Grim Reaper file. Of course, this is not recommended,
but you'll get rid of the Grim Reaper.

I agree, I use a wide screen monitor with the same

IMHO, AmigaOS should adapt to reality, not the other way around.

Hi Orgin,

Could you please post a screenshot of OWB 3.11?
I'm curious what the new Mason graphics looks
like and I won't be near my A1 for a few more
days.

Thanks.

@thomas

Hi Thomas,

Does your solution bring any potential problems?
If not, I would suggest it to being added to
the OS4.x user-startup, if it's such an easy fix.

Thanks.

@clint

Hi Clint,

On my ?A1c/OS4.1 setup I also came across this bug.
It took me quite a while to find out what the reason was.

Just go into GUI preferences > Options and disable the
Compositing Mode for Layers. Then Drag n' Drop of icons
will work again.

I hope the OS 4.1 developers will fix this bug.

Regards,
KoTLER
