AROS on AROS Aspire One - Crashes when launching executable files

Last updated on 1 month ago

Hi everyone,

I have just installed AROS (regular, no distro) onto an Acer Aspire One. It boots up fine and I can click around in Wanderer etc. The problem is... if I try to run a program, say DOpus 4 or another executable, the whole system freezes. How can one solve this problem? Maybe it is best to install one of the distros instead? Thanks in advance for your help. Smile

Strange this should not happen, probably something went wrong during the installation ...

Dopus4 needs the asyncio.library which is not present in the Build !

If you use the latest Build you have to get the library from the latest contrib

Thanks for the information concerning DOpus. I will try re-installing. Maybe, as you said, something went wrong during the installation. Like

Everything is re-installed with basic AROS, but still I can not run any programs:

Primate Plunge (Program failed - Error 0x800000004 - Illegal instruction)
Frontier (System freezes - mouse pointer stuck, no response to keyboard, have to turn the computer off and on again)
xRick (Program failed - Error 0x800000004 - Illegal instruction)
SuperTux (Software Failure, grey box, no text)

Those three I mentioned I ran from RAM (unpacked it there).

When I tried running Supertux from the USB:

SuperTux (Program failed - Error Error 0x800000002 - Hardware bus fault/address error).

System: Aspire One AOA150 - 8b

The computer was previously working with Windows XP.

Thanks in advance for help. Smile

Hi Puni,

This is Wanderer->About, but I was asking about Wanderer->AROS->About Smile It's a window showing information about AROS itself.

Also what about preferences programs. Do they crash as well?

I think the preferences worked, but will double-check here.

Prefs works great, Screenmode, Pointer, Time, Wanderer etc. Tools like Editor and Calculator also works fine. Smile

Ok, I see where the problem is. You installed ABIv1 nightly build from www.aros.org. You need to install ABIv0 build - either from snaphots from www.aros.org or from www.axrt.org.

Puni, that is not ABIv0 (by Deadwood) but ABIv1, these two Bulid are not compatible with each other, leave Deadwood the technical difference !
