ROL have 32bitted their RISC OS. They have provided both 4.40 and 4.42 for the A9home, AD6 have written their drivers for both 4.40 and 4.42 (therefore it does work on non RPC hardware).It would appear the issue with RO6 on the A9home is down to drivers. Drivers that AD6 wrote and I'm led to believe are either rewriting or patching to work with RO6. Last I heard, it was thought a release of RO6 for the A9home before the end of this year was said to be not unrelealistic. However only time will tell.
New driver to read and write large USB storage devices Jeff Doggett has ported a library to create a RISC OS module that can access USB-based FAT32 storage devices greater than 2GB in size, such as memory sticks and Flash cards. Jeff said: "This is just a filing system module - there is no desktop front-end or anything user friendly. It's version 0.01 which should give you some idea that you should try it first on a test drive before letting it loose on anything valuable." 7 comments, latest by jess on 24/11/08 7:53PM.
