Another alternative is to use simpletransfer:

Supports OS 4, OS 3, Windows, and Android.

For 2D our best benchmark is:

For 3D stuff I found starboxdemo:
http://www.os4depot.net/share/graphics/misc/starboxdemo.lha


I ran starbox on my X5000 with RX580:
StarBox Benchmark 1.0

Re: Greaseweazle V4 on AmigaOS 4.x?
Just popping in
Just popping in


I took a look at the code on GitHub (https://github.com/keirf/greaseweazle/tree/master/). That code base is written in Python 3.8, so I can understand why they would not want to maintain a Python 2.5 target along with all the libraries our native OS4 Python does not support.

What I'm thinking now is that I'll stick an RPI in my case, have the PI talk to the Greaseweasle, and build a Hollywood GUI to send commands to the PI to work with the floppy. Should not be all that hard to create something that detects a floppy insert and automates the process to have that floppy popup on the workbench :)

@Gregor

My X5000/20 has had this problem over the years, and it just started getting worse and worse.

I have the MCU connected to serial so I can monitor the error and see the output. I used the 1 second output option and watched the vdd_3v3_xorro drop from 3.21 to 2.95 over the period of about 15 minutes.

Here is a measure meant about halfway through:

My case differed from Sinans in that only one voltage line was impacted.

I would hook up the MCU to serial so you can get a better view of the issue. I use this part to access the MCU:

The manual has the pins. Let me know if you need those as well.

It looks like this is the line you are thinking of on the X5000:

@rjd324

I was having an issue with the machine randomly shutting down. The error message was coming out on the MCU:

>> ERROR: vdd_3v3_xorro out of range. Expected 3.30, got 2.96
WARNING: Supplies Turned off. Shutting down.
ATX supply turned off.

It looks like it was the PSU. I bought one of those excellent battery-powered air blowers and chased LOTS of dust bunnies away. After that, it has been much more stable.

Thanks for asking.

Re: X5000 MCU Debug Cable

@all

I have an MCU connected to my X5000, and it has been very helpful!

I recently upgraded my FTDI device with this one from Amazon:

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07RBKCW3S?p ... o2ov_dt_b_product_details

The connection was easy. The MCU header is labeled "DEBUG FTDI" and is located near the PCI connectors. The header has 6 pins.
The cable has 3 wires, Black, Green, and White. Here is how I have it connected:
PIN - Cable
1 - Black
4 - White
5 - Green

To access the MCU I use screen on Linux:

$screen /dev/ttyUSB1 38400

Here is some of the output:

>> help

@klesterjr

This is common. To install AmiSSL I have to shutdown the following:

ZitaFTP
AAMP Apps
VNCd
Synergy

You can use "status" to see what apps are running. To end a task use "break <#>". Looks like this:

> status

Process 4: Loaded as command: AAMP:Common/libexec/mysqld

To shutdown ZitaFTPServer use "break 13"

Hope this helps!

Re: qemu emualtion of AmigaONE XE
Just popping in
Just popping in


Hi balaton,

First, thank you for your work on Qemu for the AmigaOne systems; I'm super excited to see this coming to fruition.

I read through the forum here and came up with this process to git and build Qemu with AmigaOne support for my Ubuntu 20.04 Intel-based Linux box:


# git clone http://scm.osdn.net/gitroot/qmiga/qemu.git
# cd qemu
# git checkout amigaone
# ./configure
# make
# make install

The result was this:

# qemu-system-ppc -M help
Supported machines are:
40p IBM RS/6000 7020 (40p)
amigaone Eyetech AmigaOne/Mai Logic Teron
...

It looks good so far.

I then used AmiDVD to build a custom AmigaOne 4.1 Final Edition ISO image with the siliconmotion502.chip and updated both kicklayouts as directed in:

https://www.amigans.net/modules/newbb/ ... id=138684#forumpost138684

I created the u-boot-amigaone.bin and obtained the VGABIOS-lgpl-latest.bin file.

Then I start the machine with:
qemu-system-ppc \
-M amigaone \
-device VGA,romfile=VGABIOS-lgpl-latest.bin \
-device sm501 -accel tcg \
-drive if=none,id=cd \
-device ide-cd,drive=cd,bus=ide.1 \
-drive if=none,id=hd,file=AmigaOne.img,format=raw \
-device ide-hd,drive=hd,bus=ide.0 -m 2048 \
-device es1370 \
-rtc base=localtime \
-device rtl8139,netdev=network01 -netdev user,id=network01 \
-display sdl \
-serial stdio \
-d unimp,guest_errors \
-trace enable="via*"

At this point, I configured U-Boot to boot CDROM and started getting errors:

articia_reg_write: Unimplemented register write 0x80 1 <- 3a
articia_reg_write: Unimplemented register write 0x80 1 <- 3b
articia_reg_write: Unimplemented register write 0x80 1 <- 50

Re: Who is getting the A1222 Plus?
Just popping in
Just popping in


I have an X5000, and I'm also looking at getting an A1222+. I agree that limited hardware in the marketplace means every sale to an existing user does not grow our community. We know that A-Eon purchased 1500 CPUs back in the mid-2010s. We also understand that the T1022 is a challenging CPU choice due to SPE.

Let's assume AAA has used the full CPU inventory in this production run, and they will have 1500 units for sale when it's released (We don't know the production number, and there have been CPUs used in dev boards, etc., but let's assume for now.) If willing customers who already have OS 4 machines decide not to buy these systems so that other, net new AmigaOS 4 customers can, we open ourselves to more stagnation. That could create the worst-case situation with boards sitting on the shelf, unsold.

That will signal to the producers not to further invest in future boards or production. These sales generate revenue that can be used to further development. Right now, we are in a downward spire, and we need to change this to an upward spiral.

Consider this, Amedia Computer has two different OS 4 systems for sale right now, the X5000/40 and the Sam460le. All indications show that the A1222+ will be available this year too. That means we will have 3 different AmigaOS 4 compatible systems commercially available in 2023. We have not seen that since the early 2010s with AmigaOne and Sam's.

Bottom line, if you want to buy one of those boards, do it! Buy 10. The only way AmigaOS 4 will survive is if these systems sell.

We must reward those who take the risk to produce HW for our beloved OS.
