AROS One x86




AROS One v1.0: Download

Tutorial Video: AROS One installation on HD Virtual Machine


AROS One: This is a Distro AROS x86 ABIv0 created by me for personal use that I have now decided to share for those interested. My AROS One is based on the latest Nightly Builds, includes a "Drawer" Icon Set that I created specifically, and is configured with a Wanderer (Workbench) in AfA-OS style, so easy to update for all Amiga users. The Distro also includes all the latest software, including Hollywood libraries, once installed the Distro will be ready to use, even the LiveCD is operational but of course you can not save anything.


The first boot of OWB will take some time just enough to download and install the necessary fonts, the next starts will be fast, the network has been preconfigured for a Virtual Machine, who will use a real PC will have to configure their network card.

Including a Video Tutorial showing how to install AROS One on VMware Player, of course it should also work on other Virtual Machines or real compatible PCs.

It doesn't seem to successfully install in Oracle VM VirtualBox - after installation booting hangs on AddDataTypes with an Illegal Instruction

I tried to do an installation with VirtualBox and I didn't find any problem!

Did you initialize the HardDisk as shown in the video? How did you set VirtualBox?

That I did. I'm going to try again and see if it was just a hiccup. Do you have an MD5 of your iso that I can check my download against? It could also be a bad block in the DL somewhere.

It all matches up.

Guessing it was just a hiccup.

Are there any better themes for AROS? So far, every single screenshot I've seen has been hideous with so much cruft in the window decoration, garish icons and for some reason lots of women on the backgrounds.

You just have to choose or create themes see screenshot

Even the eye wants its share, many liked it, tastes are subjective

Not many done, but an old picture of my wife when we were young, the woman represents the beauty

There's loads of varying quality. The one that seems to be the least janky and broken is the OS4 theme, though.

Well you could always replace them with some pictures of hot guys if you really wanted.

Yes, but there aren't any in any of the distributions I've looked at, and that's a problem.

Question: I've been tinkering around but no matter what I do I can't get DOpus and OWB to get off the main Wanderer screen - I tried putting away and dopus goes away until I restart it, but OWB just ignores that action entirely.

EDIT:: Figured it out. Hidden away in S:.backdrop were two lines pointing to the above. Removed the lines and all fixed.

Yes, I created the .backdrop file to have the shortcut of OWB and Dopus4 on the Workbench after the installation.

Instead of removing the ".backdrop" file you could simply disable the "Run NIL: Copy S:.backdrop SYS:" command from the "user-startup".

There is always a first time, the world is beautiful because it is different

I remember booting without startup-sequence years ago and it looked like 3.x so its kind of strange that all this time later there no guides to customising Aros how you want instead of downloading these bloated versions.

You should check, there is nothing swollen, it's just the basic version Nightly Builds where I only added my icons (only folders) and my background, and some new applications, the themes are optional and are part of the base distro.
It is normal that without Startup-sequence is like OS3, AROS was built on the basis of OS 3.0

Do you think there would be any interest in absolutely stripped down version looking the same as 3.x?
