ARAnyM Running on PowerPC

Postby archimedium » 03 Dec 2007, 00:53

ARAnyM http://aranym.org/ == ATARI Running on Any Machine, the GNU / GPL ATARI Virtual Machine runs on PlayStation3. It can be launched on PS3 hosted with PPC-Linux with the Mini Pack at

http://eureka.atari.org/MacAranym.zip

Because it runs with PPC-Linux on PlayStation3, it should also run on any PowerPC machine. But I only built and tested it on my own 80Gb / WiFi / HD-Ready 720p PS3, with Gentoo / Linux.

Can somebody confirm me that this Mini Pack also works on other PPC machines apart from PS3 ? It should run on Macintosh machines hosted with PPC-Linux for instance, with various distributions like Yellow Dog Linux ? I worked on a non-installed Gentoo / Linux with a LiveCD on a USB stick.

Thanks to help me testing the Mini Pack on a PowerPC machine you may own, and report it. You'll have to launch `run_ppc.sh` and tell me if an ATARI / GEM desktop appears like in

Thanks all for help :)

Congratulations!

This thread may be in the wrong place though. Other PPC hardware platform YDL users don't hang out here much.

You can tell me if the Mini Pack also runs with Yellow Dog Linux on the PlayStation3, because there's no YDL LiveCD. I was able to run http://eureka.atari.org/MacAranym.zip hosted with Ubuntu and Gentoo, but I don't know how far it works with YDL on PlayStation3, because YDL requires to be installed properly, what I haven't experimented.

Thanks for your reply :)

Here's a screenshot of it running on YDL. I wasn't too sure what to do with it, though. I was an Amiga guy, myself. :wink:

Also, here's the command line output:
... cut ...

That's very kind of you to test the Mini Pack with Yellow Dog Linux, and to report me such good news :) I'm in charge of the ARAnyM http://aranym.org/ port on the PlayStation3 (the ATARI VM).
Image
I know there's very similar projects with AMIGA. You may have heard about it ... We share common code with the AMIGA project :wink: Mainly UAE which is the 68k emulation core.

The goal of this thread is not to know how to use an ATARI (virtual) machine. I'm so pleased it worked :roll: I'm an ATARI app developer.

What you can see on the above screenshot of the PS3, is a benchmark of speed ratio between a PowerMac G4 and a PlayStation3 (my machines).

That makes me think I'd rather optimize the PS3 build, because I can't imagine a 3.2GHz Cell is so close to a 1.25GHz G4 !

I will follow :oops:

Yes, I use E-UAE to run Amiga games and apps on my PS3. I also have Hatari installed but haven't done anything with it, yet.

Thanks for your help.

Is it planed to make a liveCD or liveDVD out of Yellow Dog Linux ?

That would help users to make their mind before they choose an install or not.

I don't know of any plans to make a live CD/DVD out of YDL.

A live blu-ray would be cool ... mmm... 50 GB ... ;)

The updated Mini Pack http://eureka.atari.org/MacAranym.zip now supports

`MacAranym` allows launching on Macintosh with Mac OS X
`MacAranym JIT` allows launching on MacIntel with Mac OS X
`run_x86.sh` allows launching on PC with x86-Linux
`run_ppc.sh` allows launching on Mac and PS3 with PPC-Linux

So Macintosh - PC - PlayStation3 are all supported with both Mac OS X and Linux.

Merry Christmas 2U.

Do you know about the Californian Computer History Museum 2007/12/10 Event at

http://www.computerhistory.org/events/index.php?id=1193702785

Where we learn how ATARI and Amiga doom were so closely related (in video) !

Interesting. If only I could find a 1.21 gigawatt power source, I would travel back in time and attend the event. :wink:

Downloading the video ... :D

There's a new 0.9.6beta2 release of ARAnyM http://aranym.org/, so the Mini Pack http://eureka.atari.org/MacAranym.zip was updated. It supports

So Macintosh - PC - PlayStation 3 are all supported with both Mac OS X and Linux.

Can someone tell me if the miniPack http://eureka.atari.org/MacAranym.zip still works correctly with Yellow Dog Linux 6 ? The devels of ARAnyM on PlayStation 3 are done with a liveCD and a FAT32 USB stick. That means with Gentoo / Linux for the moment.

But YDL seems to be at the head of PPC64 Linux developments. I'm looking forward to know if there's something broken in the applications' compatibility.

Thanks and ATARIstically yours :)
