Per the developer, there have been several crash reports for various issues with the .14 version:
@caseyac Thanks for the report. Seems .14 has a nasty crash issue all around. For now i recommend that anyone who is having issues to roll back to a previous release. Hopefully we can find the cause. We know its something that was merged after .13 was released.

Hi Casey,

I got a lot of updates today. For example Mesa 18.3.2, MATE 1.20.4, Arctic Fox 27.9.15 etc. Many thanks for the updates! I've seen a small unresolvable dependency:

Code: Select all
mate-utils:
  Depends: mate-utils-common (>=1.20.2-2) but 1.20.2-1 is to be installed


Screenshot of Fienix with the RC5 of kernel 5.0 and with the updated apps:

Cheers,

Thanks for the information. I'll look to see why I didn't get that dependency error.

Hi Christian,
Dependency issues relating to mate-utils should be resolvable now. Please test and let me know.
Thanks

Hi Casey,

Thanks a lot for solving the dependency error! I was able to install mate-utils today. :-)

Is it possible, to add tvtime to Fienix? I like watching TV and playing Gamecube and N64 games via tvtime.

@lio Did you not get a USB key with your X5000? That is a live OS4.1 which you can use for troubleshooting or reinstalling.
AmigaOne X5000 -> 2GHz / 16GB RAM / Radeon R7 250 / M-Audio 5.1 -> AmigaOS 4.1 FE / Ubuntu Linux
Amiga 1200 -> Recapped / 68ec020 ACA 1221ec / CF HDD / RetroNET connected to the world

unfortunately no ! I bought it 2nd hand from a beta tester so no USB stick nor the minimal radeon driver nor the enhancer pack that everyone got with a complete system !

sure I can buy a usb stick everywhere but a live CD could also be an option...
