This a great idea.
I'll get my friends to check their systems to see
if they're compatible.

Well my hardware support list is looking good, the only sticking point for me is that my Realtek RTL8029AS PCI is only listed as supported on the 4000 with the Prometheus PCI busboard not Mediators.

I can live without support for by Blizzards SCSI controller as I have a Fast-ATA (not currently fitted to my main A1200 as I cant use it as the same time as my BVision and mediatorSX bus board) as well, but I can't live without support for my network card.

So I guess I will just have to wait and see if it is supported or support can be added,
as lack of support would be a show stopper for me, I know it dose not use the DMA hack as I am currently using mine without a PCI graphics card as I am still using my BVision.

I just can't seem to get my head around creating screen mode with P96 to use my voodoo card so took it back out and decided to stick with CGX4, which is much easer to setup.

OS4 would give me the incentive I need to change make the switch though, as I guess I can rely on other amigaworld user to give me a hand working thing out if I get to stuck and I would like to remove the sheet of card between my BVision and mediator bus board and fix my Fast-ATA into my primary A1200 backup one.

@Dwyloc

Likewise

The only nagging thing for me, is the obvious lack of DMA support with the Mediator et al. It'd be nice to have a more 'modern' system (soundblaster, network card etc) to use with OS4, considering the OS is modern. Bit of a shame, that... I hope a solution can be put forward (Elbox).

I totally agree with you about the P96 screen mode utility... it's dire! I don't know if the OS4 version is any different. CGXMode is so easy and logical to use. It took me a lot longer to find a suitable screenmode with my monitor than it did with CGFX - that took seconds.

Well I have e-mailed Acube about requiring PCI network card support on the A1200 as well before buying OS4 for my classic, so we will just have to wait and see if lack of Realtek RTL8029AS PCI support is a real issue or just a typo.

I also have a 8139 but that needed the voodoo card setup to function and I could not see any real speed difference so I expect us BlizzardPPC can all live with non DMA network card as long as we are not forced to live without PCI network card support all together.

From the software point of view PCI boards that work in the Prometheus should
also work in the Mediator and vice versa. The list just contains tested configurations
and not every combination has been tested.

In OS4 you create screenmodes by adding tooltypes to the monitor driver icon,
after the initial installation some modes are already configured and OS4 boots
into P96 screenmodes for bootmenu, bootshell and WB.

Well the 8029 net card is a non DMA one, so it will also work for Mediator expansions.

As Detlef mention, now P96 screenmodes are created from an Icon tooltype list and its much easyer to do.

That's what I was hoping to hear.

That dose sound a lot better than P96 under OS3.X

That sounds like OS4 hardware support should be trouble free on my setup, now I just have to decide if I going to put it away for my Christmas after ordering it or start playing with it as soon as I can get my hands on it.

The bug in the AOne SCSI and IDE drivers was fixed in February, the fixed drivers
were not released yet and will not be released with OS4Classic because they
cant run on existing classic PCI boards (no DMA and/or no 3.3V support).
The OS4Classic IDE and SCSI drivers were not affected by the bug.
Bad luck...

On the betatester mailing list it was reported as not working (causes freezes
when transfering more than a few bytes at once). The hardware has lots of
TTL chips which somehow work on ZorroII but are known to cause timing problems
in ZorroIII slots already, and AFAIK there exists no public driver source code,
so IMHO there is no chance, sorry.

We should probably keep a close eye on the following thread, since I expect they will be discussing various issues in depth on amiga.org.

I'm reading the thread but dont have an account on that site, and I'd like
to avoid entering a discussion there...

Somebody asked whats up with the PicassoIV overlay support.
I've not used the overlay feature in the past so I'm not an
expert in this area. What I can say is that DvPlayer shows
black videos until you enable the NOOVERLAY tooltype in the
DvPlayer icon. I guess many other software which is able to
use the video overlay feature has similar switches to enable
or disable overlay so it should be possible to display something
by not enabling overlay.

An additional note about the Elbox drivers with the DMA to gfxboard hack:
On some news sites it was stated that it should be possible to use the
Elbox drivers, of course only when using only Elbox drivers for all
PCI cards including the PCI gfx board. It worked in the past but I'm
not sure if somebody tested it recently.
