I thought the ethernet chip docs weren't available, or had difficult NDA restrictions to get access or someting like that. Do I remember wrong?


To be honest, I don't know.

@BigC

That would also be a good choice, not only is it still sold. It wouldn't be that hard to have production runs done to make more, with parts being available and it having RoHS compliance.

A Pegasos I version might follow. Nothing decided yet, mostly since we do not know how many Pegasos I are still out there. IIRC bPlan/Genesi once offered to exchange Pegasos I for Pegasos II relatively cheaply.

I'm sorry but I really don't understand the decision to support a few more hundreds of second hand boards whilst there are tens of thousands of Mac Mini's and also Powerbooks to run OS 4 on.


Understanding isn't really necessary.

The Pegasos II Firmware has something calls RTAS (Run Time Abstraction Service) that makes supporting the chipset itself (for which I had zero documentation) quite easy. As the name implies, it is a part of the firmware that stays around and allows access to some of the features of the board without knowing the hardware.

Guess what Apple's are missing.

Also....

Does this mean that there are NO (legal) restrictions anymore for Hyperion to port OS4 to whatever hardware they want ?

It seems that the can and will port OS4 to anything they want now.

So why not to make a port for some CHEAP mobo with PPC? If you can Pegasos what not some IMac with PPCG3/G4 which I can get almost for free?
Exactly the same reason there won't be a mac mini port.
It is closed hardware, and apple are very unlikely to divulge enough info to Hyperion to enable such a port without a substantial return.

WHAT is the point of Amiga OS for Sam440?
The Sam440 is the only currently manufactured OS4 capable hardware, and it has a potential growth path, for more powerful machines.
