Announcing AmiDeb - An Amiga Emulator system.

What is AmiDeb:

AmiDeb is a bare-bones Linux install with just enough to run FS-UAE.

It is *NOT* Amilator, but is based on the idea's of Amilator.

Ruining a Text based front end, FS-UAE is then launched for your Amiga
experience.


Mounting of a real CD-Rom/DVD from the host is supported. (See A3000
config.)

As AmiDeb uses FS-UAE, all features of FS-UAE on Linux are
available.

Mounting of real Amiga formatted Hard drives.


Access to the /amiga partition via the network share (Exposes the FS-UAE directory's for the ROM's/ADF's etc.


Tools on the Linux side: nano (Editor), mc (Midnight Commander [File
Manager]), linux network tools.

Basic Amiga configs are setup for the A500/2000 and the Amiga 1200. These use
the built in Kickstart of FS-UAE and will boot to "Amiga Test Kit"

The configs for the Amiga 3000/4000 have examples of using more options in line with a real Amiga. The Amiga 3000 configuration is a copy of my real Amiga 3000 setup, and is used in my personal testing of the system.

The config for the Amiga 4000 OS 4.1 is a real working setup of Amiga OS 4.1. (only the config file is supplied), this configuration uses the beta 3.2.11 version of fs-uae due to bugs related to OS 4.1 and networking.


At the end of the installation of AmiDeb you have a real Debian Linux
system, with the benefit of being able to update and customise the system.

so you are running FS-UAE in window mode or something? FS-UAE cant use winlaunch so you wont be overlapping chromium or any other linux apps over the emulation, so that means eather a lot of alt/tabbing or running FS-UAE in window mode? or?

Nice, thanks for sharing. Did something similar based on a default RPiOS Debian system and Amiberry on the emulation side called Emiga. Not as barebone or minimal on the Linux side, but similar idea

Yes. I have noticed a lot of people complain that "Amilator" couldn't be updated. So sat down and though how to make a system like amilator, but with the ability to make changes and update it.


AmiDeb was the end result.

Nice to have all the different flavours of emulated Amiga systems out there. Keep up the good work.
