Additional Modules for Kicklayout for the emergency boot usb drive including what you need from the Enhancer package from A-Eon and also for the AmigaOS 4.1 FE Update 2 p50x0sata.device. So the RadeonRX driver and the SFS file system also added .

MODULE Kickstart/RadeonRX.chip
MODULE Kickstart/p50x0sata.device.kmod


; Additional from Enhancer package from A-Eon.

MODULE Kickstart/SmartFileSystem
MODULE Kickstart/diskcache.library.kmod

Do you use SSDs?
People are dying.
Entire ecosystems are collapsing.
We are in the beginning of a mass extinction.
And all you can talk about is money and fairytales of eternal economic growth.
How dare you!

@Spectre660

Just a heads up regarding
MODULE Kickstart/diskcache.library.kmod

Keepn in mind to drop the line from kicklayout once you install an SSD.
I don't know the full reason behind it, but caching was done with mechanical HDDs in mind and never meant to be performed on modern SSDs (I guess they do their own caching and that would double or triple the disk accesses, but that is guesswork)
But it "could" shorten the lifetime of your SSDs, I guess.

I took it out once I read about it and nothing bad had happened since (no measurable slowdowns either)

Fix to get a modified X5000 AmigaOS 4.1 ISO to work with a RadeonRX card.

https://www.amigans.net/modules/newbb/v ... ic_id=9055
khayoz:

I had the same problem when I added RadeonRX but I found a solution -

Open "AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition:Installation-Support/startprefs.bat"
and comment out the following lines:

;:Installation-Support/CheckHardwareCompose
;if $RC EQ 0
;copy :Installation-Files/GUI-compose.prefs env:sys/GUI.prefs
;setenv _INSTALL_HWACCEL 1
;else
copy :Installation-Files/GUI.prefs env:sys
setenv _INSTALL_HWACCEL 0
;endif


I guess the "CheckHardwareCompose" app gets confused/crash when booting with a RadeonRX card/driver.
Additional tip for the X5000/40 :

Replace ehci.usbhcd with the version from the AmigaOS 4.1FE update2 archive or the mouse and keyboard wont work.
