Staf, can you try again? I made some fixes yesterday so it should work. If it still doesn't, can you show me a screenshot.

Just wondering - how well, if at all, is Icaros tested with Wanderer configured as the desktop rather than Magellan?
  • Clean install of Icaros Light via Linux Hosted
  • Change from Magellan to Wanderer
  • Reboot
  • Double clicked "Host" on the desktop
  • Hard crash that has to be resolved by CTRL-C and 'killall AROSBootstrap' on the host

Kind of left a bit bemused at this point. I have to admit, 2.2.2 seems more stable than when I tried 2.2.1 a few weeks back, but that might be just that I've not tried running much yet.

Same here.

So, do simple things like clicking the 'Host' link on the 'Desktop' crash your system? I guess maybe you are not running hosted!

So I assume the maintainer of Icaros (Paulaone?) also runs native and not hosted which begs the question, does the person maintaining it even know about these issues? Stuff like this is going to seriously put off the casual "tyre kicker" (which just in case that doesn't translate well means someone that is just turning up to try it out but is not necessarily serious about committing)

Personally I am still intending to go full self-compiled and hopefully native Aros when I get the chance but life is keeping me busy at the moment.

Yes "Paolone" Italiano augmentative of "Paolo" (Paul -> English)

OK, so, we established the maintainer is called Paul.

Does he realise just how broken Icaros can be when running hosted on Linux as a first impression for people that are just looking to dip their toes in the water of Aros as a NG Amiga? (And yes, I'm aware that at one point he responded in this thread).

It's perfectly possible that this is not the thread or even the forum to post this, but there aren't enough hours in the day to join up to EAB and also separate forums / communities for Aros, Icaros, Morphos and AOS4 !
