you dont need vampire to run it..
as i might have mentioned already,my current test setup is a4000/3640/16mb. i readded p4 yesterday.

aros is currently compiled for plain 68000 and without optimizations for speed. and it certainly contains a lot of opportunities for improvement.

work is being done towards it. just look at the two past weeks highlights:

I've been working out the kinks with my AROS install for preparation in an A4000 060, Piccolo, AD516, Fastlane and something else that I can't remember. Any idea why 16-bit modes wouldn't be showing up in WinUAE with Piccolo emulation? Also the corrupting of volumes has me a little worried, has this happened to anyone else or is just good old crappy FFS to blame?

with aos or with aros or both? i dont hav an idea actually. never owned a piccolo. for aos maybe there is some tooltype in the monitor file like ESSENTIAL that can be changed to ALL. wouldnt affect aros though.

you need to be prepared for something like this while testing. however im pretty brutal with my gear and im constantly swapping disks and cfs, and i dont remember when i lost any data or partition like that.

if you are not sure about ffs, use pfs3, just stay away from sfs, as its buggy.
