My name is Krzysztof and I'm a developer in AROS team. We talked with Gunnar on how to jump start the needed improvements in AROS 68k and came with idea of 68k DevPack - a basic pre-configured development environment for 68k.

Here is first version:

- AROS ROM images
- AROS Core System
- AROS SDK (Core + 3rd party libraries)
- Working GCC/G++, SH and Make
- Basic documentation

The environment is assembled under FS-UAE with JIT enabled. I would suggest to run it under emulation first to learn it, before moving to real hardware. Please note that GCC tools are heavy (especially G++).

Feedback welcomed! Especially tests of running under Vampire card.

Thank you !
We all have hopes that AROS will work much better on 68k in the future.

I updated the DevPack:

- added a text editor under AROS68k
- added scripts and instructions for cross compilation under Linux

Here is a link:

For now this is considered final version of the DevPack. It allows interested developer to either cross compile AROS68k and work on system components or compile applications directly from AROS68k.
