Computer viruses aren’t things I would normally think about in the Amiga world, where the userbase isn’t nearly as large as Windows or Mac, since a virus is written by someone or a team. However, viruses are still around.
I recently have received a real, genuine Amithlon CD and plan to make a machine or two for myself using it. While I wait for parts to arrive, I stumbled onto a video link about someone noticing that the latest AmiSSL doesn’t work on Amithlon due to a problem with the libraries.
Amithlon emulates an 040 but to get AmiSSL working, the 060 version of its library must be used. To get Amithlon to use this one, the user had to run Make060 from Aminet in the user startup.
A video is here:
I just happened to see this recently on Amazon. It’s a keyboard wedge-shaped computer case for the Raspberry PI. It’s funny to see how design trends come around again. I may get one as it is only $49USD. I need a case for my new PI4 anyway. Maybe paint it white and put some Amiga badges on it and Ramiga or Amiberry on the PI.
My personal favorite distro of AROS is Icaros Desktop, mostly because it was first, and updated with many features and has been consistently stable and came in a virtual machine format for easy testing.
I formerly posted info about a beta release of PiMiga for RPi 4 and it was taken down shortly thereafter. I don’t know if it was due to it being replaced for new features or the name was causing problems (it was called Corona edition). Now, the newly renamed and re-released Lockdown Edition, has been released and there are downloads for both the RPi 3 and 4, not just the 4.
Due to how fast the other one disappeared, grab it now. Here’s the link and the password to unlock the file as of 4/6/2020 (can’t say any of this will work after today):
It looks like you can replace your aging cardboard boxes that your Amiga shipped in. Not all models are ready yet, but for the A500, A1000, A1200, A600 and CD32 are available now from this website: –> link <—
Here are a few pictures they’ve posted:
So, for those of you who like to run Amiga on the raspberry Pi, apparently, the Pi4 was having some issues with Amibian/Amiberry on the new version.
Just today, one for Pi4 is now out in beta format. Here are some screenshots:
I did a 2 part mini-review of the Coffin r54 OS using WinUAE not long ago, but the ultraimg-hosted images weren’t showing up recently. I’ve switched to hosting them on wordpress so now you can see them again. I only did that because I still had the source images. Older posts are probably not going to be fixed unless I need to and can find them on web.archive.org or similar.
