I got the link here somewhere. It looked like the latest. Think we need an A1XDepot. :-)

But I wonder, if the kernel is 64-bit, why Fienix running in 32-bit?

Re: Amiga Fast File System (AFFS or FFS)

Hi. I've been doing some FFS testing lately as it happens. I actually setup a DOS3 volume years ago to share data between OS4 and Linux. But I tested writing to a DOS3 volume and it was slow. Generally I find AFFS support is built in A1 kernels and don't recall having any major issues. However I hav...

Re: Fienix - New PowerPC Distro

Please post the error messages. Which package did you download? This is some shell output: ienix@Fienix:~$ cd '/home/fienix/Desktop/arcticfox' fienix@Fienix:~/Desktop/arcticfox$ ./arcticfox bash: ./arcticfox: No such file or directory fienix@Fienix:~/Desktop/arcticfox$ ls -l total 112984 -rw-r--r--...

Code: Select all

./arcticfox
Thanks. But it doesn't work for me. I CD'ed into the folder from a terminal. But it gave me back a command not found type of error. I used ls to check and tab completion so it certainly looked like it was there. I also tried running from desktop as admin but it did nothing. :-?

Re: Fienix - New PowerPC Distro

I must have grabbed a slightly earlier release. It was from this year but wasn't the big 8GB image. Just small 4GB image that needed set up on USB, Somehow the new one can boot off "/dev/usbdrive" so there is some magic going on there. I keep reading about Arctic Fox. But is this a moving ...

Re: ubuntu MATE 16.04.1 Live DVD

Please do it. I am very often alone here and need really more help with the X1000 Linux support. Well my initial testing didn't work out to well. I attempted to run a batch file. But CFE just kept giving me errors. About "-z" being an invalid switch. It was hard to tell if it was my scrip...

Re: ubuntu MATE 16.04.1 Live DVD

I haven't seen the whole thread. But I'm wondering if it can be booted off USB rather than a real CD/R/W? Has this been done yet? I've been experimenting myself. I had trouble loading the ramdisk. It's rather large and I had trouble loading it. I need to go back and check as large files usually load...

Re: Fienix - New PowerPC Distro

Yes, I am using the rootdelay=5 argument, and FIENIX-DISK can be mounted with Ubuntu; and it is "sdb2" rather than "sdd2". Hi Steve. You may want to check your SATA cables as there are ATA errors. I'm familiar with seeing these errors. But most importantly there are USB errors a...

Re: Fienix - New PowerPC Distro

You can’t login to the default Fienix desktop with your graphics card because it needs hardware 3D acceleration. Please remove Compton in another console (CTRL + ALT + F-key) with "apt-get remove compton" and after that restart LightDM with "systemctl restart lightdm". Now, you ...

Re: Fienix - New PowerPC Distro

Maybe you need a xorg.conf. Yes that was it! Thanks. I created a file in /etc/X11/xorg.d and called it radeon_si.conf . :-) I also checked my XE Jessie installer which has a similar thing. In that the acceleration is disabled. But I had to disable things like DRI and tweak KMS. Ok so it now boots. ...
