Re: U-BOOT 1.1.1 or 1.1.4 or 1.2.0 ?!

The problem with "support" of this old platform is that there is little to be gained by spending time and money on it. Those that make the decisions might prefer to spend time and money on support for new platforms, which encourages those with older platforms to upgrade. Consequently, we are all wo...

Re: U-BOOT 1.1.1 or 1.1.4 or 1.2.0 ?!

It seems a shame that there have been no updates to uboot for over 10 years. Uboot is a pretty important part of the AmigaOne, and it is far from perfected. It seems to me that there are lots of compatibility issues with sata cards as far as I can tell. I have a SIL3112 card that is unrecognized and...

Re: what is fixed xe (g4) dma and usb hardware

My problem had nothing to do with the usb, turns out it was that I had a floppy connected and it seems that the computer hung when the a1floppy.device.kmos driver was run and I am not sure if it is the driver, or when the system goes to look for the swap volume and does not know what to do when it g...

Re: OS4.1FE did not start.

It could be as easy as having a broken floppy controller Good point! So another question would be, does anyone have a working floppy under OS 4.1 final edition? Or... can anyone try a test to see if it happens on their AmigaOne XE machine? On an AmigaOne xe... Add a floppy to the connector Reset th...

Re: OS4.1FE did not start.

Still looking at pinpointing the exact problem. However, with some help I found out that commenting out the a1floppy...device in the kicklayout lets me boot. For me it is not a big deal as the floppy is almost usless in my opinion. I am still looking for more details on what actually happens as I th...

Re: OS4.1FE did not start.

Ran the memtester program on the 512 memory stick, and it took awhile, but passed all the tests. I am not really surprised, because I have been running with this memory since day one without any problems. I also tried disableing all my onboard USB interfaces and it did not make any difference. OS 4....

Re: what is fixed xe (g4) dma and usb hardware

Turning off USB made no difference to me, still freezes on after splash screen fades in.

Re: OS4.1FE did not start.

Did you try without that soundblaster in? Soundblasters (except the really old ones that use the sb128 driver) are known to be buggy. What if you create two partitions? A classic workbench: and work: setup? I tried it with the SB installed and with it uninstalled, but did not seem to make a differe...

The memory I am currently using seems ...
