Really like the idea behind this project and would like to thank the author. I've made a youtube video demoing it but I'm interested in updating it with more modern x64 ubuntu base with an LTS kernel rather than 4.15 which is EOL and latest fs-uae devlopments.
The scripts that are mentioned in the previous post, could you give more details on these scripts location. I have what I believe is the latest version which is Amilator-4.15-0-2.rar

I have started analysis in the live/filesystem.squashfs file /var/log/apt to work out what is installed.
I'm not a linux expert but keen enthusiast thats learning all the time. I seen that it uses nodm which is something I havn't come acrossed.
I have found a set of shell scripts in /amilator. start-emu.sh are these the scripts mentioned?

Does anyone know if there has been development already to update this to recent debian or ubuntu release before I start working on this?

I can understand the reason to base this on 32bit as it can be run on old hardware and we do like to hold on to our old computers ;-)
But with alot more distributions dropping 32bit and I question how many people would use this on i386 hardware still and best moving to x64?

So decided to take a baby step in working on this and just updating the debian 686 version before attempting to make a x64 ubuntu version.

I have updated it to Debian 10 buster which uses 4.19 kernel.
I have also updated FS-UAE from 2.8 to 3.0.5 as there have been some great improvements done to FS-UAE itself.
Have tested it on the machines I have here and looks good but would like people to test it out and give feedback good or negative.
My first attempt at this so learning as I go along but enjoying it so far

Excellent. Is there some reason not to use newer kernels?

Hello all.
I just joined EAB after watching MikeyG Youtube video about Amilator.
Don't know if I will be much of a help here, but I will try my best.

I'm about to play with v 4.15 and would love to try MikeyG version too, but MEGA asks for decryption key! Can I get it ?

@Gohisha Ah thank you for spotting that. You can tell I'm new to MEGA as well. Updated linked. Please try again.

@Methanoid Debian 10 buster is 4.19 based that's the reason why. Ubuntu 20.04 is linux 5.4 thats why I want to look at porting this to Ubuntu but this is more envolved and I wanted to start simple and work on it.
And I've read that very little development and patching is done on 686 platform now so I would like to look at x64.

Thanks MikeyG. Didnt know you had a YT channel (you could maybe mention in a sig discretely!) so subbed

FYI, its SYSLINUX not SYSLINK (video!)

I will have to have a play with it.

A video on how to install to HDD without using Syslinux (which i think messes with MBR sector??) would be great
EDIT: https://www.systutorials.com/docs/li...-syslinux2cfg/ might be useful for that sort of thing

Anubis, I updated it to 4.19 kernel a while back. I think this is the latest version. I'm not the developer of this, just contributing.

Downloading it, thank you.

Once installed, can you in shell run updates or should I just leave it as it is?

Thank you for contribution! Too sad this seems to be another almost dead project. It is great idea, and I am planning to dedicate one old laptop just for Amiga.

Updating it is difficult - you have to unpack the filesystem blob, replace FS-UAE or update the host OS, then re-pack it before copying it to a USB stick and transferring it via command line to the destination box.

Annoying as hell tbh
