Greetings and welcome Ezrec!
Nice to see an interest in supporting Minimig even to modern OS like AROS
Actually its not very hard to use another 512kb s-ram bank as a ROM at any other address.
I made this in some test core to get extended ROM of CDTV to work. Sure this only was a joke but it only took a few minute to allign Gary modul addressing and core compiling.
A more difficult matter would be ROM uploading into this area.
ARM and PIC right now can detect 256kb and 512kb ROM image size. 68k Bootloader in FPGA (blue background + text) must be changed too.
For a standard 2MB raw memory Minimig board, this would left free only 1.0MB of user/OS memory. Its a bit low for AROS.
An expanded Minimig board would still have 3.0MB of free memory left. As the list says: no, its still not enough.
Im interested in testing AROS for 68k. Maybe its impossible for Minimig but I also own many real Amiga model of differnet kind and expansion.
That sounds very good.
Most importand is to have a "free" available Kickstart replacement without copyright issue and requirement of an original ROM chip etc.
These development versions of AROS require:
* M68000 or better
* 2M Chip RAM
* 4M Fast RAM
* Serial port (for logging debug messages)
* AGA (I think. Might work on ECS, but I only have an A1200 for real hardware testing)
* Gary IDE (Have not tested with Gayle or A4000 IDE)
As mentioned above, Minimig V1.1 board seems to have too less available memory.
The Replay board by MikeJ. would be a better test env.
PS: Gary IDE module already is present in Minimig.
I will test this binary file as soon as possible
Thanks for your hard work!
