How about a GitHub for startup-sequences?

A repository of these things could be helpful for people building their systems?

If they were commented for example, version numbers of libraries etc could be indicated.

Can you explain a little bit more what you want ? I'm not sure to understand you.

I really don't see the point. A 10 year old should be more than capable of customising his own startup-sequence.

Exactly my thought. And I think it's much more useful when people post their SS in a thread about a specific issue, it makes much more sense and it's much more useful for future reference.

Having random SS that would much be the same in 80% of the cases don't see much usefulness to that. My 2 cent.

Why not just use github, if that's what you want?

That's what I did:

Yes, but what happens when you can't find a 10 year old???

Sure he is, but that's hardly helpful. The system still needs to be bootable ofter, and, well, thats more unlikely.

The thing is, storing a bunch of different startup-sequences, simply isn't a useful resource. So, you got MiamiDX, ACATune, and 51 other mods & tools installed. I got the two first, and 51 OTHER mods & tools installed. Our startup-sequences will look very different.

I've had my A1200 for about 20 years by now, and i haven't got a clue what makes the startup-sequence tick. I use a pre-compiled installer (WB-Classic ADVSP) and add the stuff for my WiFi & ACA1230 pretty much by copy n' paste, based on guesses as to where they go... For some reason my 8GB CF works with WinUAE, but not with the actual Amiga. Have yet to try and transfer the content to the 4GB, and see if it works there, might just be the CF that the A1200 doesn't like.

My SS only has boot,prefs options, the rest go in User-startup.

I'm pretty sure that there used to be a thread for custom SS's.
