Any recommendations ?
Use the alpha distro here: http://www.svrsig.org/RISCOS_Distro.zip with these instructions:Also I don't know how to setup a harddisk4 image to use with the Raspberry Pi
No you don't. The distro contains all the files in the hard disc 4 image and more. That image is intended for use on systems other than the Pi.anicemanone wrote:I have used the Risc OS Distribution from this site. http://www.svrsig.org/RISCOS_Distro.zip
but where on the SD Card do I need to put the hard disc image file and how to set it up so that write my work onto the SD card.
Do I need to undertake the length process outlined on this page
It seams quite a bit work to get it work.
I have not tried out this process yet so I don't if work yet
in the FAT partition plus a whole RISC OS partition occupying 1700Mbytes of the card.The RISCOS_Alpha_24Jul2012.img contains the following
When you put the SD card image onto the card and boot the Pi, it should start up in RISC OS. You should then be able to see the RISC OS Desktop. You should be able to save files to the SD card (and other USB pen drives etc.) Please post a screenshot or give detail as to what is the problem...Can someone please explain what I am doing wrong thanks
You should not see HardDisc4.util as this not connected to the distro, what you should see is a !Boot application and and whole load of other directories.acornone wrote: I have looked at files on the SD and I can't find the Self extracting HardDisc4.util file.
as you would expect.the FAT32 part only contains
No - this is 6Mbytes of ROM. What you cannot see, except under RISC OS, is the RISC OS partition. If you start up the Pi [all of the stuff to do this is in the FAT partition], RISC OS will boot up and you will see 1800Mbytes of storage with 110Mbytes or so being RISC OS software with access to the FAT partition (some 130Mbytes) from within RISC OS.RISCOS.IMG I assume that the Risc Os bits are all inside this file.
