• Amiga On The Pi!

    From Night Stalker@80:519/0 to All on Sat Jun 17 15:37:02 2017
    Just a quick little tidbit of information to those Amiga enthusiasts.. I've stumbled across something that I am sure would draw your attention if you are the owner of a Raspberry Pi 3 :D

    There exists a distribution for the Pi called Amibian which when written to
    SD card (and after obtaining kickstart and workbench images) transforms your
    Pi into an almost perfecly emulated Amiga.

    I have it installed and am currently running Amiga OS 3.9 with Genesis TCP/IP stack and inbount telnet connections work as if you were running real hardware

    Google Amibian as the website link is rather odd looking, but the first hit
    on goggle is where you need to go.

    Other tools needed are Win32DiskImager and SDFormat

    If people are having issues I can probably write up a short quick tutorial on how to get it running with basic Amiga 1200 settings. Once you are that far
    the rest is trial and error :)

    Interesting, I've bookmarked it for future reference. :)

    Ooooo, going to try this, thanks!

    After finding Amibian I'm coming across a couple more Pi distro's that are geared towards using UAE4ARM to boot into Amiga environment.. DietPi is
    another very nicely put together distro for Amiga fanatics

    It works fairly well.. you might want to check out DietPi distro also if
    you're as big into Amiga as I am :)

    Gee, choice, that's good to see. Seems the Pi can do just about anything. :)

    I'm going to have to look into this.

    I have a few Pi3's laying around I could use..

    I am using WinUAE as of now to run my CNet/5 BBS. Now I need to look into this! Nice!!!

    The Pi Amiga emulator lacks alot of functionality that WinUAE does. For one,
    it will not allow incoming telnet sessions using bsdsocket.library which
    pretty much puts a solid halt to using it for any sort of BBS..

    Did you get around to making that guide on how to setup Ambian on the Pi? I would be interested in reading/using your guide for my RPi3 as well!

    I need to get me a new Pi4 to see if it runs any better. It's ok on a Pi3B+ but it does boot pretty slow.

    Hi SHIFT838!

    13 Jun 2020 23:12, from SHIFT838 -> Spitfire:

    I need to get me a new Pi4 to see if it runs any better. It's ok on a Pi3B+ but it does boot pretty slow.

    It should run faster.
    CPU is a big step ahead on RPi4.
