AROS should run on almost any i386 PC hardware so long as the CPU is newer than an i486, and has a "Floating Point Unit (FPU)". Ideally around 700Mhz and above with at least 256MB of memory is recommended for desktops and around 1GHz and at least 256MB for laptops/notebooks/netbooks. With more RAM memory, ie above 1GB, the option arrives to run web browsers, media players and other hard disk heavy usage from RAM: disk.

Read about people's experiences here at AROS-Exec, [1], [2] and amigaworld.net and amiga.org.


Motherboards supported

  • Most NVIDIA nForce2 (2002/3) motherboards are well supported
  • Most Intel mobos are supported (recommended Skt 775) but may need additional pci / pci-e cards for networking, etc
  • AMD based socket 939 am2 am2+ am3+ and fusion based systems work but additional pci cards may be needed



Supported graphics cards (gfx)

  • Nvidia 2D and 3D. Nouveau supports 2D from TNT through to latest gtxxx - 3D acceleration for geforce5, gf6, gf7, gf8 and gf9
  • Intel 2D and 3D. 2D for many netbooks and motherboards. 3D for early netbooks and motherboards
  • AMD/ATI Radeon 2D only. External monitor support only (ie some laptop support) for 7000 through to x600. Experimental 2D version for up to HD3xxx
  • VESA 2D fallback modes for all graphic cards (GPUs) and with screen dragging


Sound wise there are the

  • Creative cards based on EMU10K1 chips SBLive (early Sound Blaster Live)
  • HDaudio for intel amd apu atom netbooks, notebooks and motherboards
  • CMI8738 C-Media
  • Sound Blaster 128 aka SB16 PCI
  • VIA 686 AC97
  • some intel based AC97 codecs
  • and for the semi professional many VIA Envy24 family based sound cards


Supported network cards are

  • 3com Etherlink cards
  • intel pro100
  • rtl8169 and rtl8168
  • rtl8139
  • rtl8111
  • rtl8110
  • rtl8101
  • rtl8100
  • rtl8029
  • atheros 5000 wireless


You could always go the AresOne route, but should you decide they are not for you it's not too difficult to put together a fully supported dedicated AROS machine these days. Read more about peoples experience here at amiga.org and here at Aros-Exec.



It is very hard to recommend a completely supported motherboard because as soon as newer motherboards arrive so their features change subtly, often introducing non supported parts like ethernet and audio. It is a moving target. A mini-itx motherboard will only get you 1 pci or pci-e slot. mATX or uATX will have more, typically 2 pci-e or pci slots which helps if any onboard features are not supported.

N.B It is frustrating when a piece of hardware is not supported. Hardware documentation can run to over 100 pages and a lot of hardware do not have any public documentation anyway. Chips from different manufacturers for sound, graphics, SATA, etc. vary just as much, unless they follow a standard such as HDAudio, AHCI etc.

Coding drivers is a far cry from Hello World programs or even a port of existing software. If you do actually want to try then get a hold of documentation on the relevant hardware and start there. Alternatively you could try to find some BSD, MIT or MPL licence drivers as a point of reference. Please , do not think you can just adapt strings in a driver for different strings, it does not work that way. You will need to start from scratch for each new bit of hardware. Device driver programming require embedded skills, like manipulation of bits within registers, good debugging skills, dealing with interrupts, lots of patience, etc.


The following specific chipsets and drivers are also available - use Tools/PCITool to confirm Vendor and Product IDs - Please let us know any mistakes or any information to be added, to this General Chat list AROS-Exec or here AROS World

Audio ChipsetsEdit

If sound beeps in AHI prefs after Music set then some support is there. Select more than one channel for multiple audio streams, set frequency up to 44khz or higher and set the volume if not already set. Ensure you set the music unit 0 to 3 which allows the extra features of the audio card like microphone, line-out, etc).

1996-2000 sb128.audio aka SB16 PCIEdit

as per CREATIVE's website, the model number is the first two digits on the front and first two digits on the back. my card says CT4810 and 161TK110B 995; this translates to CT4816 as the model.

The original AudioPCI 3000 card with the ES1370 had a master clock crystal for 44.1 kHz (22.5792 MHz), used an AKM codec (AK4531, non-AC97) and had 4 channel output; Creative later modified the design with a crystal for 48 kHz (24.576 MHz) and Sigmatel AC97 codec (apparently there also was a CT4700 SB128 with a CT5507 chip, AK4531, 22.5792 MHz crystal and TDA7360 speaker power amp). The issue with these cards involved never quite eliminate the effects of resampling on the 64V, it also shows signs of undersized coupling caps. What I liked about these Ensoniq cards is the automatically engaged headphone amplifier (with a 4565 opamp).

Porting involved 40897, 40898 configure, 40900 bugs, 40901 further bugs, 40913 memory IO fixes, 40914 irq fix.

Look for emu10k1 or emu10k2 chipset on the audio card and NOT emu10kx

the green jack is for the main speaker pair AND headphones, so manual switching will be required If your card is wired for the "AC97" standard, then it's up to your headphone jack to switch the green speaker output in and out the headphone jack has Normally-closed contacts that will open on insertion, which breaks the signal path back to the sound card (FP_RETURN)

2005-20xx HDAUDIO.audio (formerly known as “Azalia”)Edit

The HD Audio standard was designed to be pinout interchangeable so that the sound support could change easily and quickly.

Using Prefs/AHI ensure you set the music unit and at least Units 0 (where most audio comes from) in top left drop down menu to HDaudio - HIFI in the section below. Set Units 1 or 2 to microphone or other outputs. Plus allow more than one channel for multiple audio streams and set frequency up to 44khz or higher on the right hand side of the ahi prefs. If sound beeps when you press the test button then all should be OK.

This driver is made up of two parts a Controller + a Codec. The ProductID and VendorID are for the audio controller only - the important additional codec is NOT so easily identified. Some codecs missing at the moment. Use QUERYD below to find out the codec used.

HDAudio standard has headphones on a separate DAC, and it's up to the driver.. it can even send different audio to the headphones without interrupting the main (green) outputs

Things to try if sound not working

  • try to connect something to the audio jack, maybe it is not playing on internal speakers or vice versa
  • make sure you try and select all music units e.g. unit0, unit1....
  • even if PCI ID's are in HDaudio.config, this doesn't mean it is working, it is the codec that matters
  • it might be internally muted
  • try an earlier version, just rename existing one first


If the boot sound is enabled, you have to use Bifteck to capture AHI debug output. In the GRUB menu, press E on your selected entry, then add "debug=memory" to the options (alongside ATA=, vesa= etc.). Then Ctrl-X to boot. Once booted, run Tools/Debug/Bifteck.

or

  • try adding QUERYD to the start of ENVARC:hdaudio.config file (also known as Prefs/Env-Archive/) ie. on the first line
  • OR try removing QUERY and QUERYD from the start of the hdaudio.config file
  • Reboot
  • open a shell
  • type: sys:tools/debug/sashimi > ram:debug.txt
  • open ahi prefs
  • select one of the audio modes - HIFI or otherwise
  • press the 'test sound' button
  • press ctrl-c in the shell
  • post the results to Aros-Exec


If you are a developer, maybe take a look at the OSS audio driver sources, alsa for ideas for fixes for our drivers.

To get version of the driver check with he AHI pref or type into shell version HDAudio.audio or the version button in DOpus with driver highlighted.

Envy24 seriesEdit

A little history. VIA bought the ICE created Envy chipsets VT1712 first. A few years later, they created several cheaper variants VT1724 (mixer missing), VT1721 (low end cut down), VT1720 (embedded on motherboard) and lastly the VT1723 (no support apart from Windows Envy24DT like SYBA SD-PEX63034).

There are PCI Express versions appearing.

The Envy24 is the base product that was originally designed by ICEnsemble, and it supports multi-channel hardware mixing, which is great for professional use. The HT version removes the hardware mixer (unimportant for non-professional uses). The HT-S version is almost exactly the same as the HT, it just uses cheaper DACs. The PT version is exactly the same as the HT-S version, it is just the edition used for on-board audio on motherboards.

N.B. PCI slot identification and 3.3v PCI.

Intel GMAEdit

DVI output is not supported at the moment.

If having problems:

  • Ensure the latest version is being used.
  • Set GMA_MEM to 128 or 256 to test
  • Try the FORCEGMA ToolType for 2D, and try the FORCEGALLIUM ToolType for 3D acceleration after 2D is verified to work. ToolTypes should be applied to the Devs/Monitors/IntelGMA monitor icon.

If still having problems:

  • At GRUB boot screen edit boot line and add option: debug=memory
  • Boot.
  • Use shell command: tools/debug/bifteck > RAM:debug.txt
  • And post [GMA MONITOR DETECTION] and other related debug lines here

The best graphics card a person can buy for AROS is a 9800gtx, followed by other 9800 variations, followed by 9600GT, followed by 8800GTS. Its (9800gtx) the highest clocked gpu based on that architecture with most stream processors that is well supported by AROS' gallium + mesa combo. Higher clock/memory speed seems more important to AROS than stream processors.

Unless your computer uses a Firewire chipset manufactured by Texas Instruments, FireWire interfaces are likely to act buggy. AROS is unlikely to ever support FireWire.


Bluetooth is similarly unlikely to be ever supported due to huge cost to be certified.



No x86 PCMCIA card.resource at the moment. Writing card.resource would be a similar amount of work to writing a typical driver. However, it might be complicated by having to support a variety of PCMCIA-controller chipsets like TI PCI1225, PCI1410, PCI1420, 1450, PCIxx12 and O2, etc. m68k card.resource does not really have many higher level functions, most functions are really simple or poke Gayle registers directly. only exception is CopyTuple(). Amiga card.resource has one significant flaw: it's single-unit. would need card.resource and pccard.library. There was talk in the past of designing a new API for PCMCIA because card.resource only supports one slot, but since most modern laptops only have one slot anyway, I think it might be worthwhile to implement card.resource as-is (at least as a first step). pccard.library would be trivial to port. So, new API is needed.

The more I work with AHCI, the more I realize that it's going to take a pile of test hardware just to figure out all the different bugs in all the motherboard chipsets and add-on PCI cards that 'kinda' implement AHCI. Not to mention Silicon Image, which took a very different approach from Intel's AHCI in their SATA controllers.
