AmigaOne: Linux-Kernel 2.6.18
Under the title link Gerhard Pircher has published the Linux-Kernel 2.6.18 for AmigaOne-computers. It contains a workaround for network lockups (for the built in ethernet only), where the machine locks up after the first dozen of MBs have been transfered. Unfortunately the network data corruption couldn't be fixed: The update only improves ethernet operation.

Suggestions are very welcome. Installed Mac-on-Linux-moduls of version 2.6.18 should work. (snx) (Translation: (dr)

AmigaOS 4: Jagged Alliance 2
is a round based strategy game with roleplay elements. There is an open source SDL-port of it called ja2-stracciatella (screenshots: 1, 2, 3).

Hans-Jörg Frieden has ported the game to AmigaOS 4. The latest version of AmigaOS Richard Rummond's libSDL-port as well as the English original version of Jagged Alliance 2 are required. The author is going to publish further languages and invites you giving a little bounty as support.

The AmigaOS-version is a full port of ja2-straciatella 0.9. SDL may cause a Grimreaper at the beginning of the game but which you can ignore - the bugs is knwon. Should the game itself crashes it may help if you delete all files in the directory data/temp. You can get further information on Hans-Jörg Frieden's website. (cg) (Translation: (dr)
