Re: HW-Sensors interface?

It looks like some PowerPC processors have a Thermal Assist Unit (TAU) which can tell the current CPU temperature. See here for more information: https://www.nxp.com/docs/en/application-note/AN1800.pdf.

Re: HW-Sensors interface?

Nobody seems to have ever looked at implementing anything for the older machines (Sams, A1s, A4k/A1k2 with Phase5 PPCs), and my guess is it's because there isn't any (known) API or even the necessary sensors for those. There is a CPU temperature monitor for AmigaOne: http://os4depot.net/?function=s...

Re: Question about future of AmigaOS 4.1 and 4.2

Hello hlt, Hyperion is the only one who can answer your question. Beta testers are under a NDA so we can't comment on AmigaOS 4's future. About the hardware... I think A-EON is doing a great job by providing new PPC computers to Amiga, MorphOS, and Linux users. I'm looking forward to the AmigaOne A1...

AmigaOS 4 and Classic Amiga emulation

Hi, Now that AmigaOS 3.1.4 has been released, I'm curious if the new Kickstart ROM will be included in the next AmigaOS 4 release. AOS 4.1 Final Edition came with a Classic Amiga emulator and Kickstart ROMs 40.60 and 40.68. Are there any plans to include the new Kickstart ROM in the next AOS4 releas...

Re: Creativity extras

I picked most of the listed software from the OS4Depot. It seems that you only need OS4Depot's permission to distribute the programs with AOS4 since authors have granted distribution rights to OS4Depot when they uploaded their programs and ticked the "Distribute" box on the OS4Depot's upload form. Y...

Creativity extras

Hello, For me Amiga has always been a creativity tool. I'm proposing that a set of self expression tools would be included in the next AOS4 version as extras, so that everyone can start creating right away :) I'm proposing 6 tool categories: music , graphics , video , creative writing , game making ...

Re: Joystick and MIDI handler

I had a vague idea that the joysticks would appear as directories in the JOY: device. And in the same way the various MIDI gadgets would be listed as directories in the MIDI: device. Seeing which joysticks and MIDI devices are available is then just a matter of listing the content of JOY: and MIDI: ...

Joystick and MIDI handler

Hello,

I'm suggesting two new DOS handlers: an USB joystick handler and a MIDI handler. They would provide easy access to joysticks and MIDI devices from any programming language.

Re: Where do I find Documentation/kernel/bootloader.txt?

It might be a good idea to add a 'Configuring the Kickstart' section (or something like that) to this AmigaOS wiki article: http://wiki.amigaos.net/wiki/UserDoc:How_AmigaOS_Works. There is a section about Kickstart modules but nothing on customizing the Kickstart.
