|Bootdisk-Creator: Amiga911 Maker 1.46|
Mit "Amiga911 Maker" lassen sich unter AmigaOS 3.0/3.1 maßgeschneiderte Bootdisketten erstellen, die aufgrund der Verwendung von LZX oder XPK eine ganze Reihe von Tools auf einer normalen AmigaDOS-Diskette unterbringen. Der zu bootende Amiga muss dafür mit mindestens 1 MB Speicher ausgerüstet sein, empfohlen sind 2 MB.
Änderungen in Version 1.46:
- The Amiga911 boot disks will now contain a new icon set. These icons were
made in a way that should make them look OK regardless of the screenmode
used, this basically means that the graphics in the icons will look a bit
"stretched" in both laced and non-laced type of screenmodes. All of them
are standardized to 44x22 pixels, and the icons will also take up less
disk space now (at least a few KB saved).
- Four new programs are now supported:
- Check4GB - Check if your HD setup is 4GB-ready
- DiskImage - Mount any disk image file as a DOS device
- HJSplit - Split large files into smaller ones
- WhichAmiga - ShowConfig kind of tool. V1.3.3
If you add DiskImage to the Amiga911 disk, you will be able to mount ADF
floppy images, ISO CD-ROM images and HDF harddisk images on your Amiga, and
then you can copy files from/to the images. Mounting the virtual devices and
performing diskchanges is handled by a requester based script that will also
be included. There is no need for messing around with mount files since they
will be generated by the script when they are needed.
HJSplit can also be controlled by a requester based script, and it allows you
to select the exact size of the small files the original big file shall be
splitted into. You can choose between various sizes that can make each small
file fit on a Amiga or PC formatted floppy disk, or you can enter the split
size manually. The script can also join all of the files back together again.
Versions of HJSplit exists for several platforms including Windows and Linux.
- A new archive called ExtInst.lha are now included in the Amiga911 Maker
package. This archive contains the few files that earlier had to be copied
from the Extras and Install disks, and as long as ExtInst.lha is present in
the A911MakerData dir, those disks are no longer needed since the required
files will be copied from the archive instead. In other words, you may only
need the Workbench disk for creating a boot floppy from now on.
- Some system files have been replaced by the free alternatives from Michal
Letowski's MSys 1.2 pack, these files are: Avail, LoadWB, MakeLink, Reboot
- The standard RequestFile command have also been replaced by Torsten Poulin's
free alternative version.
- If the Anaiis USB stack is to be included on the Amiga911 disk, the Anaiis
prefs program is now optional.
- The "Cut" command is no longer included, the reason for this is that the same
type of functionality can be achived with the "Echo" command instead.
- A new "Clean up" window is introduced in this version of Amiga911 Maker, and
when you open and run it, your project will be scanned for files that are no
longer needed. Some of these files will automatically be deleted, while with
others you will be asked whether they should be removed or not. You can open
the "Clean up" Gui by selecting it in the menu of the main Amiga911 Maker
- In an attempt to save more space on the Amiga911 disk, a more critical look
was taken on the system files that's included on the boot floppy, and the
conclusion was that a few of them could actually go. The biggest waste of
space was the bullet & nonvolatile libraries since they are quite useless on
a emergency disk. Other files that no longer will be included are the
following: More, Date, SetClock, SetKeyboard, LoadResource, parallel.device,
serial.device, lowlevel.library and realtime.library. With the exception of
the last four files, they will now be deleted from your project when you run
"Copy system files". If you want to remove any of the the other four files as
well, you must use the "Clean up" Gui (see above). Now that "More" is no
longer included, a hardlink to MultiView is created upon booting the Amiga911
disk, this means that every time the system tries to use More, it will use
- All Windows that includes a log listview does now have a "Export Log file"
menu option, and by selecting this you will be able to save the log as a
file, or you can copy it to the clipboard.
- Various small improvements & bug fixes.
