Just wondering if Time prefs will ever be fixed to work with daylight saving?

As always, a great roundup, although I'm a little mystified why a topless nun wants me to get an A1222...

@skynet

I don't believe its possible to change the resolution of the splash screen - I think its part of the kernel not the OS.

I'm fairly sure that the on board sata won't write CDs or DVDs - I've never been able to. We might get a fix from Hyperion one day. It might be possible to connect a drive to a Sata card, like the 3112, but you'll lose the ability to boot from it.

Don't know what you refer to but maybe it was when running on QEMU when using image files that should already be cached by the host then having additional cache in the guest is not needed. On real hardware or when passing through disks to guest so it handles it like on real machine I think disk cache is still useful but @joerg is the expert on that. He said SFS uses diskcache.library so it should be useful for it. I think it's best to not mess with it and leave it as it is on real machine unless it's proven to slow down access whith disk image files on QEMU but I think the difference might be small if any so may not worth the hassle and confusion of when to use it or not.


I was referring to real hardware, the original conversation predated QEMU (or at least general discussion of it on this site). I can't find it, but there's a reference here : https://www.amigans.net/modules/newbb/ ... id=141903#forumpost141903

Which I take to mean you shouldn't use diskcache on real hardware with SSDs

But I seem to remember reading in another thread that SFS\00 would probably be the better choice. Perhaps the size of the partitions also plays a role. I'm currently using a 500 GB SSD.


Yep, that came up here https://www.amigans.net/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?post_id=145872 and joerg gave a great breakdown of SFS/00 v SFS/02 https://www.amigans.net/modules/newbb/ ... id=145892#forumpost145892

On real hardware disk cache is used because the disk is slower so it keeps things in memory for faster access.

I have it removed from my Kicklayout. Partitions with NGFS and SFS/02.

Great read. Yep, 2023 was a horrible year...

Would love to see your file requestor with preview function expanded to include images and maybe video and rolled out across the OS.

Go to Servers and check that www.amiupdate.net is selected. For some reason it isn't selected by default and selecting it doesn't stick.

Did you have AmiUpdate running when you tried to update it?
You need to close that down before reinstalling with the latest downloaded version.
It will then be able to update itself while running as was the case previously.

Cheers


Thanks, I thought I had run the installer from fresh, but I guess I hadn't. I updated to 2.52, although AmiUpdate cannot update itself to 2.53. It can see the update but can't install it.

I've also been unable to update AmiUpdate.

When I run my current version (2.49) it doesn't detect any updates.

I downloaded the version you linked above, but when I try and run the installer, it stops:

"COPYFILES: Couldn't copy file 'DockStrip' in line 116.

DOS Error Type: Unable to access a file or drawer -- object in use"

I tried manually copying across AmiUpdate from the archive, but when I run it it crashes.

Also perplexed by update library. Both the version I have and the version in the archive have the same version string 53.19 but different dates and differnt file sizes.

Yeah, me.

I've been too busy/cowardly to try. Plus, I tried to upgrade my uboot a few months ago, and the machine wouldn't even power on.

Re: Amiga OS4.1 SSD Harddrive utility

Probably the best filesystem to use on your X5040 is the *unreleased beta version* of NGFS.

The version that was released with OS 4.1 final is pretty broken and not terribly reliable. Apparently, however, there is a beta version that has been developed that is much better. Like I said, it was never released, so you might need to privately ask a beta tester or one of them may PM you after reading this. (Don't ask me, I don't have it either).

It is not backwards compatible with the release NGFS, so if you're starting a new system from scratch, I recommend getting hold of it and using that. I don't know if NGFS works on anything other than X50x0.

I don't know which version A1222 let alone X5040 (I have X5020) ship with; as NGFS was developed by Hyperion I would guess its the original release version.

I use NGFS for my boot partition and SFS/02 for all others - although I believe you can still boot from SFS/02, provided is is enabled in your kicklayout.

I don't believe we should be using SFS/0 on OS4 systems, although joerg is far more knowledgeable than me on this.

Re: NetSurf 3.11 has been released!

Hi,

On my X5000/RX560, scrolling is very rough and refreshing slow - the page visibly flickers (the top when scrolling up and the bottom when scrolling down) and often completely disappears for a second.

I have tried on both Workbench and Netsurf on its own screen, also tried switching off Simple Refresh, but the result is the same.

So much happening this month... FFMPEG (and GUI), MPlayer, Ibrowse... I've been so busy to check them out. Will have to wait until January.

Thanks for the Roundup, always very useful for catching up on what I've missed.

Re: IBrowse 3.0 released

BTW, had a slight hiccup when I upgraded from 2.5 to 3.0. The installer detected the version bump, and created a new directory for 3.0 and migrated files across. But I had some custom buttons that I had custom images for. These sit in the same dir as the other button images but for some reason were not migrated. So when I first started 3.0 I got a bunch of missing images error messages. Took me a few moments to figure out what went wrong. Installer should copy across the entire directory including any images I have added.

Wow, this was unexpected!

So does this mean IBrowse 2.5 dev is ended, and all future work will just be on 3?

@AmigaSociety

Hmmm, no problems on my X5000 but I have had a lot of issues installing Hyperion updates, to the point that I once bricked my machine. I have found that if I select "Novice User" (I normally select Advanced), the installer doesn't crash out. Bit of a long shot, but give it a go.
