Feel that AROS is progressing too slowly? You could help by sponsoring AROS development! Basically, if I can gather enough sponsorship I will be able to work full-time on AROS this summer. I did this last year, and it gave a quite a boost to AROS development. Please see the linked webpage for the details.

Do you have the competence to bring AROS to Pegasos II?

In reply to Comment 1 (Anonymous):
First, I don't have a Pegasos II. Second, I haven't really done any "hardware programming", so I can't say if I'd be able to port AROS to run natively on the Pegasos. I'm a quick learner though. :-)

I would love to run AROS on an Apple laptop if it was able to run MorphOS binaries. But maybe it is too much asked for a single developer with I guess no Mac.

In reply to Comment 4 (Christophe Decanini):
If you mean run natively on an Apple laptop, then that's a bit out of reach. Hosted on MacOS X or Linux is a bit more realistic, and MorphOS binary compatability should be possible. But no, I don't have a Mac either...

I'd try to get you a Peg2 but so far my case for doing that is weak, given what has been done so far with the Peg 1. Or am I wrong there?

In reply to Comment 6 (greenboy):
Yes, unfortunately the work on AROS for Pegasos seems to have stagnated. :-/ Seems Michal doesn't have much spare time, and the time he has had has been used to write some drivers for x86 AROS (although these are ofcourse partly usable on the Pegasos too).

In reply to Comment 7 (Adam Chodorowski):
More troubling to the person I would make the case to is that the Peg1 was not passed on to someone who would show interest, which would have given AROS a $1000 back when we could easily afford that, and two more Pegs.

But other worse problems have kind of had our attention lately ; }

Take care, Adam : }

In reply to Comment 8 (greenboy):
it will be great to see before some port in other hardware... a mature product that run on most PC X86 hardware and that can run natively (thanks to an integrated JIT) every 68k AmigaOS apps.
If JIT and UAE integration is transparent, AROS will run every AmigaOS3.X apps and several people will can start to use it.
AROS could become a pseudo official "AmigaOS" opensource environnement with official support of Amiga Inc/Kmos/Hyperion to try to develop AmigaOS community too on PC hardware.
This coudl bring more users, more developpements and of course more money for every people working in Amiga community.
More money will help too developping custom hardware for Amiga users (like PowerPC market)...
AROS if run on the top of a recent Linux Kernel should use a not too modified Linux kernel to benefict a maximum compatibility without too efforts.
not (like Amithlon that have a little too much modified kernel) unfortunely.
to benefict all progress of Linux hardware compatibility in transparency, AROS could use a kernel ~2.6 like in all moderns Linux distro, run JIT for 68k AmigaOS apps, allow native 68k/X86 apps devloppement and why not the hability to run on some WBwindows Linux apps...
Running Linux Apps directly on Workbench will be really great but probably too difficult...

In reply to Comment 9 (top):
AROS runs on my 2.6 Debian without ANY kernel modifications, i don't get the point...
As 68k jit, this has been very very often debated and this is NOT a priority, nor doable in actual state of the Art.

In reply to Comment 5 (Adam Chodorowski):
you said, morphos binary compatibility in aros is possible?
this made me thought about that:
imagine, aros running natively on some ppc box, with os4 and morphos binary compatibility.

this would make aros to reunite the two opposite clan in amiga community?
would be interesting to see ;)

In reply to Comment 11 (bleh):
MorphOS binary compatibility is probably easier to do than OS4 compatibility. And supporting both systems is virtually impossible - other than OS 3.1 compatibility they have nothing common.

In reply to Comment 11 (bleh):
MOS compatibility will probably be there, as MOS and AROS share much of the APIs (we exchange ideas and try to be as compatible as possible), and also the API.

However, AmigaOS4 implements a new kind of ABI which, although not impossible to support, is not really what we have planned for AROS. Moreover, AOS4 uses some APIs which we don't support and don't intend to, like Reaction.

Sorry, make that "ABI".

Forget AROS! I don't really like it. x86 should be gone, :)
