AmigaOS & CD32 loader
Posted by: gunne on Sunday, January 08, 2006 - 11:47

Marcel 'Frostwork' Unbehaun released a new nice creation for your Pegasos II computer.

This time a loader that loads and boots directly into the genuine Amiga® operating system or CD32 on your Pegasos II, displaying a nice splash-screen during loading.

As default it boots directly into an inserted CD32-CD.

As usual the software-archive is available as free download as torrent in the download section, link in the left column.

Many thanks to Marcel for this nice creation ! Click Read More for further information

    From the included README

    • boots directly into an inserted cd32-cd
    • ac97-sound
    • (usb) joypad
    • keyboard
    • mouse
    • In general everything you can do with e-uae (thanks a lot Richard) should also work with this. So you should f.e. be able to replace the (cd32-)uaerc with your A-WB-3.X-uaerc and boot directly into your favourite WB-version :)

      Requirements (default)
    • a Pegasos2 ( Pegasos1 maybe also works )
    • a Radeon for splashscreen
    • cd32 kickstarts
    • cd32 cd(s)

    • Copy everything in this archive onto your boot-partition ( README, COPYING, e-uae-docs dir & src dir not required ). The boot-partition has to be the 1st partition on 1st hd. (this should be the case on almost every pegasos out there) Replace the two textfiles CD32.rom & ext_cd32.rom in the cd32-cfg dir with your appropriate cd32-kickstarts.

      • type "boot cd32" in OpenFirmware insert a cd32-cd in cd-drive :)

      • don't touch #!/bin/bash
      • swapon is commented out per default, if you need it uncomment it & replace hdXX with your swap-hd (for cd32 it's not really useful ;) )
      • "sleep 5" is required,as without the (usb)-joystick won't be recognized. You can de-/increase it if "5" isn't good for you or comment out if you don't like joysticks...
      • "/usr/local/bin/uae -f /booty/cd32-cfg/uaerc" starts the important part with the uaerc in the cd32-cfgs dir...

      • /bin/bash is ON per default, if you prefer one of the next 2 lines, comment out /bin/bash & uncomment one of the next
      • halt -f
        If ON your Peg will shutdown immediately (should be save as the only mounted hd is mounted ro)
      • reboot -f
        If ON your Peg will reboot immediately (should be save as the only mounted hd is mounted ro)

    • You can mount hds with following filesystems if you want to change your uaerc and/or start-misc script...
      compiled in:
      ext2, ext3, affs
      asfs, fat, vfat

    • included is the used kernel-config (2.6.15) & the used initrd image if you want to make similar ( ATM i'm writing a bigger HOWTO, which hopefully will be finished soon)


Have fun!

Does it automatically boot up the version of AmigaOS that came with the CD32 (for cd-rom support purposes?)? Thank you very much for the help.)
