Ok, I bought a package called AmigaXL and Amithlon. Two different Amiga Emulators on one cd. It came with a Non commercial version of QNX 6.1.0. Amiga XL needs to be installed under QNX.
Well when I first got it, I wiped the Linux dirs from both my 40 gig hd’s. Installed QNX to the first hd and installed Amiga XL in QNX. I had the AmigaXL setup the second hd for Amiga FFS partitions.
Anyway I had no problems when installing QNX, everything worked. Amithlon doesn’t need QNX, as it is supposed to run by just booting off of the cd. But Since I have a Geforce FX-5900 Nvidia card, it doesn’t have the drivers on the cd, so I can’t boot into it yet.
Well I had also picked up Amiga Forever 6, which could run under Linux or Windows. So I cleared everything and installed Windows on the first hd and tried Amiga Forever.
Well, I decided I wanted to try something with Amiga XL again, so I wipe the Windows partitions off, and install QNX 6.1.0, but this time when I get to the first re-boot where I need to set up the screen size, I move the mouse, but no pointer moves. When I finally get past that screen, I get the QNX desktop and the pointer is stuck in the center. I cannot move it.
I did not have this happen the first time I used QNX.
I downloaded the NC 6.2.1 and installed it, and I can move the mouse pointer, but when I try to install the Amiga XL, I get a couple of dependencies warnings, so I do an upgrade via the installer, and then Amiga XL installs with no warnings.
But when I try to run it, I get a screen that says it can’t locate the first program that gets loaded during bootup.
So I can get a install of Amiga XL in 6.2.1, but it won’t run correctly.
And the 6.1.0 that came with it still won’t let the pointer move when I move the mouse.
I don’t understand this at all. How can 6.1.0 work right the first time, but after I try something in Windows, it suddenly can’t find the mouse?
I don’t know if I should try to download the 6.1.0 iso and burn it to a new cdrw and see if that gives me the same problem.
