AmiKit to HDF + Intel Mac = ENV problem

Author szewski
#1 Posted: 8 Feb 2009 15:11 

First of all I would like to thanks all AmiKit project contributors

Ok, to the point

My goal is to create 2GB HDF with AmiKit in it. I want to do this because currently I have to launch Amikit from Windows XP witch is running under VirtualBox on my IntelMac Macbook Pro.

There is a nice HOWTO on ths site explaining step-by-step how to do this:

When I do this it is working just fine on Windows, but when I try to launch AmiKit HDF from E-UAE + HiToro - I get an "ENV" requester (C:SetPatch: file is not executable) - the same thing is when I try to copy whole AmiKit folder to Mac and add AmiKit folder in HiToro.

More info:
- My ROM and Amiga system source is Amiga Forever 2k8
- permissions to AmiKit or HDF Amikit file are RW to all (doublechecked that)
- partition is OFS/FFS/RDB (Volume textfield is not active in HiToro - can't type "AmiKit:" from GUI - don't know why)
- used software: HiToro 0.5.2, E-UAE 0.8.29-WIP4

EUAE settings (Folder):


EUAE settings (HDF):


Any ideas ?

Thanks for instant replay

Hmm, I tried to rar whole AmiKit windows folder and copy it to AmiKit folder on Leopard - still permission issues

then I've chmoded SetPatch manually on Leopard:

bash-3.2$ ls -la | grep SetPatch
-rwxrwxrwx 1 sw staff 36212 9 mar 2002 SetPatch

still SetPatch ins not executable..

The same thing is when I'm trying to run previously unpacked HDF from rar...

Can someone tell me how some files on HDF have permission issues on one host (Leopard) and working just fine on other host (Windows) ? AmiKit folder was mirrored (with all permissions) on different partition (HDF file) with DO4. They are the same.. from Leopard/Windows POV HDF file is only bunch of 010101.. how come files contained in it act defferently on different systems.. I don't get it.. at all..

Boot from HDF again, enter the Early Startup Menu (by holding down the both mouse buttons right after the reset), select "boot without startup-sequence" button and then enter the following command:

Protect C:Setpatch +RWED

Now reboot. Any change?

OK, I've managed to install AmiKit on another laptop with _real_ Windows. Currently I've got a HDF SFS file with upgraded AmiKit 1.5.5 with CD0 and files in AmiKit\Storage\DosDrivers folder (after 'uaescsi.device' problem). Now I have a simillar problem described in this topic: 9

On Windows host Amik hangs on 100%, when i hit ESC the following requester appears:

'Can't load Tereza file'

When I click 'try next'

this requester appears (can't load):

This is on Windows host.. On Mac the output is different. Loading screen is not showing up, hitting ESC doesn't do anything. After a ~30sec I get:

and GURU right after:

It is something with screen mode ? messed E-UAE settings ? oh, one more thing - I've changed IPrefs wait time from 1 to 2.. an then to 3.. no luck..

my E-UAE settings below:

Any ideas ?

Ok, thats it...

Everything has a limit.. my patience too.. I've already wasted a one week of my to figure it out what is wrong..


If you have a mac and you want to dive into AmiKit/AmigaSYS world - just use Windows XP on VirtualBox and WinUAE on it. Even if you win a EUAE/HDF/permissions/long name/SFS/FFS/AF2k8/Win<-->Mac copy/you_name_it problems you will end up with a laughable EUAE-SDL performance (windowed and fullscreen) in compare to WinUAE.. even on WinXP under VirtualBox.

Note: This is only my >personal< opinion.

Happy AmiKit user
