Bug! *Splat*

Every developer knows the feeling when finally he/she finds a bug and slaps to the forehead while mumbling: "How on earth was this thing ever been working?..."

Well, it just happened to me, I have fixed a bug that stopped the ROM from booting. It was a rather stupid mistake (as usually); for the details check out the update.
In this other minor update I have fixed one more nuance with the wrong addresses in the dumped PowerPC code log.

The Guru has been taking in riddles again.

A few days ago I created a tool called NoYellow, it hack that is supposed to prevent the yellow guru mediation, from displaying, in the stone age when this guru meditations where created it was only Red Guru meditation, all crashes resulted back then in computer crash, in Workbench 2.0/AmigaOS2.0 or maybe later 3.0, the Yellow guru mediation was introduced, this was recoverable crash, well acutely many of the errors are not that critical as you might thing, many devices and libraries have there own error codes.

Optimize It

I am back from the holidays for sometime now, but I got swamped instantly by the work in my daytime job. I had very little energy on the project in the nights, which was spent on two things: chasing that #@!% bug which is killing me and implementing the data-flow optimization.

I have actually received a few donations! I'd like to start by saying thank you, you know who you are!

After a much needed vacation on the French Riviera, I still have a few days off work, and I can put a wee bit more effort into JAmiga/JamVM.

Deluxe Paint

As an Amiga fan, many years ago I used Deluxe paint from Electronic Arts.

Today I still dream that one day, someone, somewhere will create Deluxe Paint for the Amiga.

Summertime!

After a long-long time we are going to go on holiday with my beloved wife.

While I am AFK (pick one) please just sit patient and try to find the bug that prevents the OS from booting, will ya?

Thanks. :)

See ya in August.

Byte off more than one can buffer

This is more of a mental note to self. But it gives a small insight to what I'm battling with.

I've just traced in which way VMNetChannel allocates its ByteBuffer (ByteBuffers are used for pretty much anything handling data, not only network stuff, so its a pretty crucial thing to have).
Starting in VMNetChannel, we find a ByteBuffer.allocate(int capacity). It goes something like this:

Back to net stuff

After my latest musings with JNI and JVM interfaces, I am finally back at implementing the network support. I have implemented it pretty like described in previous entry and also made the necessary classpath changes. Furthermore, the classpath implementation, java-net library, now fully depends on the various JVM_-functions exported by the main JAmiga engine, i.e. JVM_Socket, JVM_Bind and so on.

A4000: Installing Indivision AGA mk2

Hey peepz, long time no see, but I had a really good excuse :)
On 26th of May my lovely daughter was born and for that matter I was fully devoted to her and my wife :)
I'm really happy that everything worked out just fine, and that a new girly Amigan was born.

Anywayz... this weekend I found some time between her sleeps to tinker my lovely A4000 and my newly acquired Indivision AGA mk2 (for A4000/CD32).
Many have already made some reviews and troubleshoots via the known forums but here I will present my own POV.

So, this is what the package includes

Janus-UAE v1.2 released

Nearly a year after 1.1 was released, I found the time to fix some of the v1.1 bugs. Some of them appeared because of recent AROS changes and bug fixes. There are no new features in this release.

Bug fixes:

God Save the Queen

Thank you dear Queen Elizabeth II that Your Majesty has birthday, just like us, puny humans do. Even if it is not on this day yet we got a day off to celebrate in New Zealand too. (Well, logic is not a strong point of human society.)

So, I decided to celebrate Her Majesty's birthday by doing some coding.

The update is a little bit short and not too interesting, just a couple more instructions implemented:
