Loading PDF on 68k?

Post by OlafSch » Fri Jun 01, 2018 1:14 pm

Hello,

I tried to load a PDF on 68k (in my case Aros 68k)

unfortunately I did not manage to do that

Is it not possible?

The codes that failed on 68k worked on f.e. Windows without problems

No, the PDF renderer is currently not supported on 68k. I'm waiting for Bebbo to fix this issue. As soon as there is a proper 68k gcc with C++11 and wide char support, the PDF renderer can be made available on 68k as well.

Code: Select all

- New [OS3]: The AmigaOS 3.x version of Polybios supports PDF rendering now; thanks a lot
  to Stefan "Bebbo" Franke for his work on gcc 6.4 for m68k which made this possible!;
  NB: if you intend to use the 68k version on OS4 (which doesn't really make sense, but
  anyhow), you have to turn off the JIT for LIBS:Hollywood/Polybios.ext because with JIT
  Petunia seems to be stuck in an endless loop; on MorphOS the 68k PDF renderer won't
  work either but this looks like a bug in MorphOS' 68k emulation to me; on WinUAE it
  works fine
 
Version 1.0a has just been released, see here: https://forums.hollywood-mal.com/viewto ... =19&t=1933

Is PNG datatype active? I seem to recall that it's needed on AROS 68k.

PNG datatype isn't needed. Have you tried a second 68k system? e.g. is the PDF shown correctly on WinUAE?

I can tell you under 68k you can open pdf files and show png pics, because I'm work in my owm program.
The only bug and problem is open the PDF with password only it works under Windows.
