Part 4 - OS 4.0 Configuration

There instructions will be a lot more basic than the usual instructions and some knowledge of OS4 is assumed.

If you have any problems with these instructions, please do not hesitate to ask.

Link to supporting adf file: http://www.apidya.net/Guide-Files.adf

On the support floppy:
  • lha.lha - from OS4depot
  • wget-OS4 - from OS4 depot and extracted to fit on adf
  • Ethernet.lha - from Aminet

Installing Guide Support Files

1) Load WinUAE and boot to your OS4 installation.

2) Insert the supporting adf file (link above) into DF0:

3) Double click on the DF0 / "BinoX Guide Files" icon to get the listing of the drawer.

4) Double click on "lha.lha"

5) Set destination to C:

6) Untick lha.guide and lha_os4.readme

7) Click Start

8) Once extraction is complete, click quit

9) Copy "wget-OS4" to C:

10) Guide support files are now installed


Installing Network Card Support

1) Load WinUAE and boot to your OS4 installation.

2) Insert the supporting adf file (link above) into DF0:

3) Double click on the DF0 / "BinoX Guide Files" icon to get the listing of the drawer.

4) Double click on "Ethernet.lha"

5) Once UnArc has loaded, set the destination to "Devs:Networks"

6) Untick "readme.dev" and click start

7) Once the extraction is complete, click "Quit"

8) Open up your workbench drive and go into the "Prefs" drawer

9) Double click the "Compatibility" icon

10) Click "Add"

11) Navigate to "Devs:Networks", click "ethernet.device" and click "OK"

12) Click Save

13) Close all open windows.

14) Open up your workbench drive and go into the "Internet" drawer

15) Double click "New Connection"

16) Choose "Ethernet (Lan, Router, Cable modem)" and click Next

17) Select "Manual Configuration" and click next.

18) Scroll down until you see the "Commodore A2065" listing with the "ethernet.device" listed next to it, and then select it.

19) Click "Test this configuration"

20) It should say that the configuration test was passed. Click OK.

21) Click Next

22) Click Next

23) Untick "Store report in file"

24) Click Finish

25) You can close the console window now if you want

26) Networking is now set up. It is a little bit useless at the moment, as iBrowse currently doesn't work under emulation (written at time of Beta 13) but this will be solved in another step of the guide!


Installing a web browser (that works)

1) Complete the guide steps "Installing Guide Support Files" and "Installing Network Card Support" first

2) Open Shell

3) Navigate to the place that you want the browser to be installed to (e.g. "Work:" - It will automatically

create a subfolder)

4) Type "wget-OS4 -O aweb.lha http://www.os4depot.net/share/network/browser/aweb.lha" (not including quotes) and push enter/return

5) Wait for download to complete. (Occasionally, but rarely, this will fail. If it does, try again)

6) type "lha exa aweb.lha" (not including quotes) UnArc causes a divide by zero fault with some archives and

crashes the PPC atm - hence using lha from the shell

7) Wait for the extraction to complete

8) Close the shell

9) Open the Drive/Drawer where you extracted aweb.lha and go into the AWebPPC drawer

10) Double click "AWeb"

11) This will take a while to load - the "Loading fonts" part takes a long time

12) Enjoy using a browser on your emulated Amiga OS 4.0 - You can now use this to get whatever files you want from the internet and use UnArc (or lha from the shell if it crashes the emulation)

Tips and Tricks
  • UnArc sometimes crashes the PPC emulation - use lha from OS4 depot (or the support floppy linked above) for troublesome archives.
  • IBrowse does not work under emulation. I recommend using AWeb (from OS4depot) for general browsing. OWB does work, but is slow and runs out of memory quickly.
  • After following the Support files, Network Install and browser install guide you can easily download the OS 4.0 classic update from Hyperion and install it. - Tested and working fine.
  • AWeb downloads faster if you don't tell it the download location until after the download progress bar has finished
