November CAM out : Comment 1 of 12ANN.lu

Now thats nice reading....

IPv6 is not really used how ever I expect that
Internet will move over to this new standard at one time.

IPv4 do not provide the number IP addressed needed,
some one need to log off (DHCP/BOOTP) is needed for IPv4,
on IPv6 we can think that more of oss having static IP addresses,
like the phone number or home address,

I'm clicking and clicking it wont work :D

So seriously I read it an it says

<The missing IPv6 support is one of the drawbacks I hope to resolve by eventually porting a more modern TCP/IP stack. OpenBSD appears to be a very good choice for this effort. However, considering that it took me almost two years to get the initial 4.4BSD-Lite2 networking kernel ported and polished, don't hold your breath for that task to be finished or even started any time soon.>

The one thing really Is cool, is that me implemented mount lists for Ethernet devices!
and the support for PPPoE and Firewall, plug-in architecture.

It will be really cool to Se how this works for me once I get AmigaOS4.0.

Hopefully this post will be deleted. I only like to read the same news ever day, "Bill Buck farted in bed again this morning and held the covers over Raquel's head so she could get the fully potency." This makes 1345 days in a row now. Raquel Velasco could only be commented as saying, "Better pick the corn out of that one Bill! Whew!!!"

Except we most likely won't run short of IPv4 adresse until around 2020+ getting IPv6 support is urgent.

You mean like announcing you've been able to register a domain containing a certain name and set up something that reminds a website.

What about China/Japan? They already have to use NAT. Anyhow IPv6 is better than IPv4 in many ways.

Ah, the Roadshow article was informative and interesting.

I was one of the first to join Club Amiga. I have never received the promised t-shirt, or $50 discount coupon. As Amiga has not resolved this issue, as stated they would back in January, I feel justified in posting the "secret" sCAm article-here is the only real info from this issue. I'll probably be banned from future SCAMS, but it is no loss.

Lots of things are happening, and here is some of the news we would like to share with you. The biggest news, which you have probably heard or read elsewhere, is that AmigaOS 4 is now running, natively, on the AmigaOne hardware. That includes support for G3 and G4 CPU's, Level 2 cache, and a PIO-Mode IDE driver. Currently, a DMA-Capable IDE/ATAPI driver is in the works.

Our main focus at the moment is getting the graphics system completely ported to PowerPC. This work is underway and I expect that the migration will be done by the time you read the next OS 4 Update. The AmigaOne version currently runs an unmodified version of the Picasso96 RTG software.

The RAMLIB process (the OS component that usually loads shared libraries and devices from disk) has also been updated. Initialization of modules is now done in a separate process, preventing the system from becoming unstable when a badly-written disk module crashes. Instead, the Grim Reaper will now inform the user of what happened, and the opener will be signaled that the opening failed, allowing for a clean exit.

On the audio front, I'm glad to say that we now have a fully PowerPC native AHI and SoundBlaster Live! support running on the A1, which makes playing games like Quake or Duke Nukem 3D a much more enjoyable experience.

In addition, the workbench/icon system has seen a major overhaul. Besides being able to use an individual color palette per icon, redraw and dragging on true-color screens (15 bits and above) is now handled by specialized code. The result is vastly improved loading times of workbench drawers - much faster than what you might have seen on the Benelux Amiga Show and videos.

A few additional pieces of functionality have been added to the kernel. For instance, it is now possible to find out which task allocated a piece of memory.

Finally, there have been a lot of new PPC-native modules like Roadshow, with support for the onboard 3Com Ethernet controller, an almost completely PowerPC-based Reaction system, and so many smaller modules that I can't really mention them all.

Oh, and did I mention we now have Warp3D running on the AmigaOne, too? Well, now I did.

How come "annoyed customers" and "notA<insert company of the day>Fan"s almost
always seem to post from IP adresses beginning with 209. or 65. ?

Is it some universal law that governs these things?
