Hello,
I'm using the latest AmiKIT on mac os, when connecting to any IRC server using amIRC causes WinUAE to freeze.

Does anyone have any suggestions to fix this?

Cheers,
Rob.

Yes, I can confirm the freeze. I will investigate the issue and try to fix it in next update.

Thank you for the report!

Great!
Thank you.

If you need me to test anything, please let me know.
I also tried loading the AmiKIT hard drive image under FS-UAE, to try native rather than WinUAE under wine, but I can't get it to boot

AmiKit X uses dynamic hardfile which is probably not supported by FS-UAE.

Please note that WinUAE under wine is the most compatible solution and on top of that it might run even faster than on Windows because there’s no Windows in background Also, Wine Is Not Emulator as its acronym stands for ;)

Ah!
I never considered it used a dynamic hardfile.
Good point about WINE too!

Also found you get the same freeze when trying to use WookieChat to connect to IRC.
It connects, joins the chat room and lists topic and other users before the freeze.

I installed AmiKIT using AmigaOS 3.9, is it worth trying a reinstall using OS3.1/3.5?

No, AmigaOS3.9 is the best source.

I will investigate the IRC issue. Just allow some time as there are a lot of things going on here right know.

Thank you for the report!
