Software Migration from 3.9 to 4.1

AmigaWorld Essential Snapshot Every now and then new users of AmigaOS 4.x systems are somewhat lost when it comes to the migration of their old AmigaOS 3.x software. Beneath the famous IntuitionBase compability database there are a lot of other threads and bits and pieces all over the net for this tempting task.

My own personal migration from AmigaOS 3.9 to AmigaOS 4.1 is documented below, a rip from a thread at AmigaWorld.net (Essential 68k s/w for OS4). May it be helpful for those who will follow me! ūüôā

Please be aware of the fact that this list is only my „migration“ list. There’s a lot more OS3.x 68k software, that will work with OS4.1, but I didn’t tracked these packages, ‚cos they were „fresh“ installs (i.e. IBatch, SMBMounter, etc.).
