Re: Why are the X1000 Linux kernels so sensitive?

I didn't know that. But I don't see why. "hdx" is a perfect designation for a HDD. Putting IDE drives on the "sdx" bus makes no sense to me as that is inaccurate. Using "atax" would make more sense in this case! We still have mechanical drives and most IDE ones would be. Well, think of the "sdX" de...

Re: Why are the X1000 Linux kernels so sensitive?

Most likely because this kernel and the included drivers is quite new, and is tested by very few people (compared to Linux on other architectures). Thus, not all the bugs have been found and ironed out.

Re: set up to read floppies on X1000?

Hmm, the current lack of CatWeasels is a hurdle, yes.

set up to read floppies on X1000?

Is it possible to set up an X1000 to read classic Amiga floppies?
If so, what do I need to do that?

(I thought someone might have asked this question already, but didn't find anything when searching. Maybe my search- and Google-fu is weak)

Re: Swapping doesn't work with update 4.

I guess most (all?) X1000 owners doesn't have SWAP: setup at all. The recommendation is that swap isn't needed if you have 2GB (or more) memory.

Re: Opening windows on Frontmost screen

Not that I have AmigaOS 4.x; but doesn't ARexx already have a library / functions for handling public screens?
