Yes, it works with basically any Amiga, including the A500.

To run it on real hardware, you can copy it to a disk, make an appropriate startup sequence and boot from it.

Alternatively you can download the ADF and use a means of transferring it to a disk (there are several ways. Google them and see which one suits you best).

Or if you have a Gotek or similar USB/SD-Card Floppy emulator, then just copy the ADF to the appropriate media and run it.

Nice idea to have an official adf distribution with a bootable disk. Is it legal to include setpach or is it copyrighted?

Is there any interest in an official ADF distribution?

(I need some help testing the latest beta on an real unexpanded Amiga 500 with 1.3 and 1.2 to verify a "crash on quit" bug).

setpatch is part of the workbench, and you can license that from Cloanto. Just send them an e-Mail; Michael from Cloanto is a nice guy. He may grant a non-commercial license for shell commands and setpatch.

@apex @ma693541 @Storm
Any particular feature you're waiting for? Specific bug fixes? Or do you simply enjoy watching software get increasing version numbers? ;-)

Proper 060 clock frequency display, RTG support, more details about measured disk speed...

...ah yes, and my personal wish: boards.library support.

Part of the fun of retro computing is looking for software updates and any improvements that can be found

Some bugs are fixed but I haven't been able to finalize the '060 support yet.

Regarding RTG, it will take som time...

If you want I can publish alpha/betaversions but I do know that '060 stuff isn't working correctly and do not need any bugreports on that part yet.

@Geijer, good to hear that you still think on this project and will work on it again. Last update was in 2012, that's because we where wondering if this project was still alive.
I know we have "Ranger" for Classic OS 4.1 FE, but will SYSInfo be OS 4.X compatible in the future? Maybe a small donation from us all will motivate you to do that.

If you'd like some help regarding the expansion boards part, my offer still stands.

Hi. I have both of these and can test it out if it helps. They both have trapdoor RAM but I can remove them if that helps. The 1.2 is a Rev 5 NTSC and the 1.3 is a REV 6 NTSC if that matters.
