Done some more interesting testing of how myX11SetupLight works with AmiCygnix. This one is supposed to help configure the display for the standalone applications and that works the way it's supposed to. The problem is however when trying to run apps like AbiWord, GIMP and Gnumeric in their own custom screen, if configured that way. Then myX11SetupLight shows up with a Display Error message claiming a missing 8-bit display support, regardless of the screen mode and resolution you choose. I suspect a bug in that myX11SetupLight, or the way it was originally made. I hope something can be done to improve that.

I just happened to have problem running AmiCygnix 1.5 on my SAM460ex under AmigaOS 4.1 FE Upd 1, using Picasso96CloneWBdb. The system locked up. I had to use normal Picasso96WB instead. My graphic card is a Radeon HD 6670 1GB PCIe from Sapphire. Please remove Picasso96 drivers in future versions. It's no longer used in AmigaOS4. Try to use Composite2D driver instead, and support Warp3D Nova.

I've downloaded the base package, unpacked it with Unarc on a SFS2 partition and made an installation without problems. So the archive file is O.K.

Problem could be:
* The archive you've downloaded is corrupted and the file "Start_AmiCygnix.bat" in the AmiCygnix root dir is missing. Please download the archive again.
* The Cygnix: assign is not set correctly while installation. The protect command is searching for the file "Cygnix:Start_AmiCygnix.bat". Maybe you have a partition named "Cygnix:"?

Problem with myself created script. OK with the last GNumeric standalone script.
But all these scripts worked before.

Mail sent with a example of a failing script

Are these standalone scripts created by you? Or do you also have problems with one of the original packages?

Thank you to have resolved the Dead keys problem. It works very well on Abiword and Gnumeric (just tested these 2). Good job !
Since I update, I'm unable to launch my old standalone workbench scripts.
They failed with "Unable to open X display". It works well in full Amicygnix environment and with the GNumeric 1.10.17 Start_Gnumeric_Standalone.bat.
All my standalone scripts worked before the update.

No, it is not used at all.

Is Amicygnix uses altivec instruction on capables machines?

Please check your installer binary. It must be the original binary from the OS4 package.
Type "which installer" into a shell. The result should be "Workbench:Utilities/Installer" or something like that.

Hey...I noticed this strange reproducable problem on my uA1-c. Whenever I try to install Amiga-Cygnix-base to AmiCygnix on the same partition (formatted SFS 1.286) I ALWAYS get an input.device DSI error that causes the install to not be completed because I get to 45% and the keyboard and mouse will not work due to the input.device error!
Anyone else have this problem with OS4.1 u 4?
After about 7 or 8 times of trying this, I hacked the install file to start at the 45% point and was able to finish the install. I hate having to kludge like that!
I have a micro A1 with 512M of RAM, a PC keyboard (uses standard plug) and a logitech wireless 2.4 GHz mouse.
So what's wrong with input device and heavy installs?

@Elwwod on my X1000 is it really fast.Only the scrolling from the windows could be smoother
Comment by: Elwood ( 21 Jun 2012, 13:24File version: 1.1
Nice! Now if that thing could be faster, it would become a "must have" in OS4.
