Here is what needs to be done:

A partition with hex number 0x76. How to create it is explained in this guide:

Adjusting AmiKit system:

Add missing lines from Amithlon U/S-S to AmiKit U/S-S

Install:
V1.29+ Amithlon Update (aminet),
latest Amithlon drivers, patches and use kernel 4 from http://sourceforge.net/projects/amithlon/files/
OpenPCI

Choose proper Screenmode

Useful programs :
GiggleDisk for automounting FAT and NTFS partitions
MiamiDX for Internet access (Uses DHCP)

Notes:
Maximums amount of RAM is 1GB

Hi everyone.
I'm currently "porting" Amikit to Amithlon.
My next step will be build an Installer to autoinstall this great peace of Software on my Amithlon-System.
Within this Installer it should be possible to use the right drivers for your used kernel and Hardware.

I only want to ask if there is a interest. Would this be an option for Amikit?

We're currently discuss this theme on eab.

Sorry for my bad english.
Yours

Amithlon is a magic! I remember the days when I tried it, it's was a really fast system and the PC it was installed on booted and behaved like a real Amiga. Sad the development was discontinued. It could have been a superstar

Drop me a message and let's see what can be done. http://www.amikit.amiga.sk/#!contact/cvrh Thanks.

Hi a little Update about my progress.

Amikit is up and running on my Amithlon-System. I used the Windows-Version as a basis.
Now i have a few Questions.

What kind of libraries is the Win-Version using? 020? 030? 040?
What is the font you are using for your Logo? I want to customize a few Graphics to make it look more clean and want to make a custom Wallpaper.
Would it be allowed to replace some functions with custom ones? This would make the appereance more clean and would give you the right Amiga-feeling like using an NG-Maschine.

Yours
AmithlonGuy

No Problem Jan.
I just do it for the community not for business
Amikit is your baby and you should have all the things in hands.
I can just help you to bring it to Amithlon.
