Old Broadway X using KDE

Actually i kicked KDE because it sucks too much performance...
Most desktop stuff will be done by the AROS-side.. as wm i am using now openbox...

The ARM Version will be released as first. I will be on vacation so end of August could be doable. The first release will not include Hollywood.

Hello!
I am actually now working 100% on the Efika version.
In a "few" minutes i will upload my first public "AROS hosted distribution" .

Just a "preview" AND without all the bells and whistles of AEROS. : )

The plus:
it will run on every armel linux.

Final AEROS should/will be armhf.

Whatever in the meanwhile i will show (tomorrow or maybe later today) a short video of launching Linux apps from inside AROS on Efika. I just wan't to get rid of Ubuntus wm.

Stay tuned.


Edit:
Ha... I should give a short update about the idea behind AEROS.

AEROS is a mix of Linux (in this case debian) and AROS (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AROS_Resea ... ing_System)

Linux brings the benefit of having a large or let's say gigantic amount of user/developers and applications. AROS is much more efficient than LINUX.

A linux user will like how snappy he can browse through the filesystem compared to for example Ubuntu. This is also the case if you will try the coming preview (milestone 0 : D ) on Ubuntu on your EFIKA MX.. compare the speed.

Actually the ARM line of AROS has been ignored a bit.. i hope this changes and you can enjoy a lot of fast and efficient (because of low footprint) apps besides your well known Linux apps.

One note: AREOS will not just a package of AROS hosted (like the one i am now uploading) but a full Linux distribution. Most stuff like running AROS in Fullscreen and having Linux-windows on top with seamless (not mouse stuck in window effect)mouse movement is not possible on Ubuntu.

3 minutes left....

You can grab Broadway hosted "preview" from here http://www.aros-broadway.de/downloads/index.html

EDIT:
Ahh.. i forgot the manual!

For everyone who has never used AROS hosted:

After decompessing the archive you can find a folder called "boot".
Go there and click on AROSBootstrap to "boot" AROS.

Should be enough for a first look : )

Hi Pascal,

I would really like to test this on my Efika MX but after extracting thr folder on the desktop and clicking the AROSBootstrap icon, nothing happens, I only get an error something.

Can you maybe assist?

Is there any other AROS I can try to run on Efika MX? If so, can I boot it from an SD card and if so, how would I mount the iso to the usb? If I would use UniversalUSBInstaller.. what OS should I choose from the menu, so I can "see" and choose the iso from my desktop/the place where I have it?

Sorry, newbie questions here but I guess this is the right place to ask? :)

Thanks much!

Hi,
are you using the standard ubuntu on your efika? Or the debian thing with 3d support?

It should work with ubuntu, but it isn't compatible (yet)with the ARMhf debian image.

Normally you should just need to click on AROSBootstrap.
You could try to run it from shell to get a bit more feedback.

//////
there is no iso /img yet avaible.
You just need to extract the files.
You can try to edit the bootstrap.conf...
see here:
http://aros-exec.org/modules/newbb/view ... mpost62739

Maybe i had more free ram than you.
Change the memory value with an editor to 32MB. This is more than enough

Hi Pascal, I am using the pre-installed Linux Maverick 10.10 so I guess it should work?

Please let me know how to make this work.

Also, I am looking forward to the AEROS.. now that should the the real thing for me! :D

See my "edited" last post. I assume that you have not enough free RAM.
I am running a newer version of ubuntu.
http://www.powerdeveloper.org/platforms/efikamx/linux

I had to install it because i ran into a bug which was present in "my old" preinstalled ubuntu.

I will prepare a image based on Ubuntu. Lx-command is still not running right on ARM and AROS hosted needs a small fix in order to get an id for Openbox Windowmanager.. that's needed.

Michal is working on a AROS hosted port to ARMhf which will give beter performance and 3D support.

Yes, I am running that same one.. Maverick 10.10

This is Efika MX Smartbook btw, but it should not make a difference right?

When clicking the AROSBootstrap, I get an error that there is no software that can run the executable?!

from the shell.. nothing happens.

Oh well.. maybe this is over my head and should just wait for an img file instead?

Also, how to get in contact with you, so I know when the AEROS for Efika is reay to test? Will that be publicly available or just for the elite? :)

Thanks again for your time and help!

This is strange!? I will ask Michal to test this on an Smartbook.
EfikaMX progress and a public download will be made available here in this thread.
