Manually installing Amiga OS from Amiga Forever CD

Hits: 161

Prerequisites

  1. Install an ubuntu 12.04LTS  or 16.04LTS server 64bits (follow this article).
  2. Install E-UAE sdl 32bits (follow this article).
  3. An amiga OS source for the system files. Here I’ll do everything from the Amiga Forever 2010 DVD.

Copy the content of the DVD

Your tutorial is below. It’s a huge work for me to make all those tutorials, please show me your support liking my FB page !

FIRST steps

Make a drawer to store Amiga OS, and another for the WORK disk

mkdir ~/amiga

mkdir ~/amiga/AmigaForeverOriginal

mkdir ~/amiga/AmigaForeverOriginal/System

mkdir ~/amiga/AmigaForeverOriginal/Work

Mount the DVD-ROM, and copy the content of the amiga system disks to

mount /dev/sr0 /mnt

cp -R * /mnt/Amiga\ Files/Shared/dir/System/* ~/amiga/AmigaForeverOriginal/System

cp -R * /mnt/Amiga\ Files/Shared/dir/Work/* ~/amiga/AmigaForeverOriginal/Work

umount /mnt

Create an uaerc file for your workbench

Add those lines. When done, save the file as “Workbench” in

~/amiga/uaerc/Workbench

kickstart_rom_file=/home/[yourname]/amiga/ROMS/kick40068.A4000
