Geez...they just couldn't have waited another 24 hours? Darnit, now everyone else will get a hold of it a full day ahead of me....

*sigh*

Oh, well. Just another item on my to-install-when-I-get-back-home list....



Seriously, thanks a bunch! This is WAY cool!

Thanks very much Hyperion for a very welcome surprise

It took me a while to realise that Moovid was in c: - I was expecting it to be in Utilities or Tools :oops

A couple of questions:

1. The update has in fact installed Kernel 51.20, but Workbench-->About shows Kickstart version 51.19 (I have rebooted). Am I confusing different OS components?

2. The readme states that the new Loader is 51.6, but mine is still 51.5?

The workbench titlebar lists the revision of exec.library. This is different from the kernel version. The kernel is just a file combining exec.library, utility.library and expansion.library. Each library has it's own version number, and the kernel has it's own that more or less reflects the "assembled" stuff in the kernel...

It should be 51.5. The 51.6 is a typo... sorry for the confusion.

Gawd, I haven't even been able to download the first update yet (damn slow dial-ups)! Do I need to install that first before this one?


Yeah, you need to have the first update installed in order to use this one.

Anyway, excellent work Hyperion. Have a great 2005 chaps!

Gret news!
I can't wait to get the USB mass storage working.

But.....I am unalbe to access the updates on Hyperions site because my uA1
came with an unnofficial OS4.0 update1 CD (received from Software Hut) and
I have not serial number to register with.

Software Hut says they will have offical CD's in a week or two. Does anyone
know if these will include update2? Hyperion?

Is there a way I can get registered so I can download the update?

The CD's should be on their way in the meantime.

No, I'm afraid that you absolutely need a serial number.

Just installed Update 2 and I am having real problems access CDRW now. Everything was working fine before, but now if I insert a CDRW disc, I get an Audio CD icon appear with a 9.7GB capacity and a Grim Reaper.

I manage to write a crashlog but then my system hangs completely. Luckily I was running IBrowse the last time and managed to load the log into that and do a copy and paste job here!! Chopped the bottom bit off, hopefully the important bit is below. Is anyone having similar problems??

If it's any use to anyone, the CDRW works fine with unformatted cds, but again the GR appears as soon as the format completes. Again, it displays an icon for an Audio CD (Called A6 in Info in Shell if i remember correctly) and then I am back to a 'hung' system.

If it is indeed one of the new CD's, the serial number should be on the inside of the sleeve, right above the installation instructions.

If that's not the case, contact your dealer.
