Re: MicroA1 dying :(

@ SoftwareFailure If anything else fails and you're in a mood of tinkering with hardware, I could send you my MicroA1-board which stopped being useful many, many moons ago and since some time after I became the proud owner of an X5000, which unfortunately is in storage. P/M me if you are interested....

Re: AmigaOS only boots from install DVD

@donfirth

Does (your version of) UBoot support booting from NGS\00 partitions?

Just a thought.

Re: radiobutton.gadget doesn't load/open

@javierdlr

And for that same matter you have to open "window.class", "layout.gadget" and "button.gadget" (and all other classes & gadgets you want to use) explicitly as well. You only do so for "radiobutton.gadget".

Re: WIKI errors for sift.c example in IFFParse Library docs

@Thread [LURKINGMODE=OFF] It's been a while since I last posted anything on any Amiga-related thread: due to circumstances I've become a lurker por the past one-and-a-half year.

Re: Troubles in Commodity-land

@xenic After a lot of discussion on this topic it appears that you're not going to get an answer unless someone with access to the commodities.library code can determine what qualifiers and codes are acceptable and create a list of them in the autodocs or WIKI. I'm likewise minded. Maybe I'll have t...

@xenic I suggest you replace tabs with spaces in your text editor before posting Uh, me??? Using tabs in code??? No, not me, definitly not. (Yikes!) As Linus Thorvalds remarkes in his Linux coding guidelines, is that not all tabsettings are globally equal ("like defining Pi to be anything but 3.14")...

Re: Troubles in Commodity-land

@All Well, a new year, a new opportunity: happy newyear to all of you! After a lot of testing I found this to be working: "rawkey lshift a", which is working. For lshift one can just take anyone of lshift, rshift, shift, capslock, caps, etc., etc and for 'a' one can take any other key OR one of the ...

@broadblues
ASOPOOL_MFlags , MEMF_SHARED | MEMF_CLEAR,
That one had escaped my query. Thanks, it works like I expected.

@tonyw
