Hatari - RISC OS raspberry pi version?

Hello, all.

Finally I seem to have found the right place - right here ;-)

Wandering through the vast realms of the internet a few days now, strugling to find a Hatari version that will run speedy on my Rasperry Pi - not in Raspbian though, but on the mucht quicker RISC OS. This is an older, RISC chip optimized OS that really is quick even on a single core Raspberry Pi (I think it even doesn't support multiple cores). First signs are great, it really IS quick compared to Raspbian. BUT, the Hatari version that is available for it (1.62-2) doesn't run - it raises an illegal instruction exception.

I know that there HAS been a 1.62-1 that ran beautifully on a Raspberry Pi on RISC OS, but that version I can not find anywhere anymore. I seem to be the only one in the world trying this nowadays ;-)

Now I even see a 2.0.0 version - so Hatari is still actively developed - nice!

Anybody can point me to either the original 1.62-1 port for RISC OS/Raspberry Pi?
Thanks in advance and keep up the good work!

R.

note sure if this is any help (I don't have Riscos running on my Pi to test) but a very old thread linked to this site, which is long gone, but luckilly archive.org has the site saved, as well as the downloads:

Hi, Spiny!

Yes, I ha dalready found that discussion - in fact, it sparked my question ;-)

The archive of noriscnofun made my day - just downloaded the 1.62-1 version, will let know here how it works.

There is a brand new version of RISC OS coming up for Raspberry Pi, and it really is much faster than Linux/Raspbian, so I recon there will be more people that will start using it - I wonder if there's anybody with enough knowledge to bring Hatari further on this platform.

First, I'll try it ;-)

Hi,

This is fun! It works like a charm and straight 'out of the box'. I will tweak the settings as I go. This thing is really accurate and fast on RISC OS.

I wonder if Franck Martineaux is still around - now that the fun really starts, it would be nice to have him around ;-)

Spiny, thanks.

I wonder if the Hatari on RiscOS experience is much different to Hatari on Raspbian on the same Pi?

There are always new versions of RISC OS made available on a regular new release basis, since it is maintained and enhancements are added by various programmers, with the people at risc os open bringing help and supervising the quality and usefulness of the code produced.
It's been like that for many years.
Not only it is available for the Raspberry Pi, but for many other hardware, including the Iyonix PC, and the Acorn RISC PC.
