Try it Yourself

Sam440 port of AROS is missing the EMAC driver at the moment. Nevertheless I have decided to give you a test version to try. Few comments on this iso:

  • Download it from this address,
  • Compressed size: 7492755 bytes, Uncompressed size: 37980160 bytes,
  • the MD5 sum equals 6f630f0bff9f5c5922d5ef76e1c748f5
  • The kernel of AROS assumes that your machine has 512MB of memory,
  • The default resolution is set to 1024x768x16. Due to a bug hiding in Zune, AROS might be unstable after the mode switch.
  • I have tested AROS connected to monitor through the DVI port – this one works for sure.

Have fun with it.

  1. Wow, you beat Tigger in releasing AROS PPC. Keep up the excellent work!

  2. I have no hardware to test it but maybe it will come, the sam440 seems to be an great board.
    You did a amazing job, Michal ! From times to times, I look at the sources. Maybe one day I could help.
    I am very glad to see AROS PPC moving forward.


  3. I’ve tried to boot the test version but it appears to hang after loading the kernel modules. Max suggested I grab the serial debug output which I have, but it’s probably a little too lengthy to post here. What’s the best way to get it to you?

  4. Opps, I was going to leave my email address also.


  5. Perhaps in future kernel versions it would be possible to add some MMU functions similar to mmap.h and/or the os4 ones.

  6. aros PPC work runing in Wii PPC?
