What level of performance could I expect from a G5 system?

Did you see https://sintonen.fi/pics/mplayer_benchmark.png ?

It should play most if not all FullHD movies nicely with MPlayer.

My browser reports "document contains no data" for your link.

I think the same thing is happening in this link from a.org:

For 1080p - 2.0GHz is not enough - in the best case it gives results similar to 720p on a G4. 720p h264 should be no problem for 2GHz G5 MorphOS/MPlayer. A bit suprising that Mac OS X/VLC handles movies slighly better but maybe it's because usage of 2 CPUs :).

ive heard that in case of confirmed hardware breakage you can transfer your license to another machine (presumably of similar type). you would have to contact the mos team in that case, but shouldnt be too difficult.

The good news: It booted on my PowerMac and is installed .

The bad news: It doesn't work with my network. Just moved the ethernetcable over to the powermac before booting the CD and it was plugged in ever since. Using a Dlink DIR-655 router which are pretty common.

So I won't buy it untill it's working but if/when it's I certainly will . Good job!

@Hotrod

Have you tried changing the network settings?

RMB on desktop > Settings > System > Network

If DHCP is failing, you could easily set up a static`IP here (don't forget to fill in DNS and Gateway IPs also - your router IP will do for both of these).

Regards


Rich

@Boot_WB

Thanks for the reply. Yes I've tried to change the settings to static but it didn't work either, can't even ping the router with either setting . Otherwise it looks like a very nice system for my PowerMac, fast and good support for gfxcard and sound.

@hotrod:
What kind of PowerMac you have? Some very early (and rare, but I've met such machines already) PowerMac G4s have a different ethernet chip, which is not supported by MorphOS. Alternatively you can try an RTL8139 PCI card, which should work. (Normal PC one too.)

It got two G5s at 2GHz. I might have such a card so will try it.

I got a network-card with the chip RTL8139D on it which I used to use with the Mediator. Installed it, plugged in the cable and the light came on, so far so good. Checked the prefs in MOS, started the Network settings, choosed to add a device, choosed the rtl8139 device driver and got an error message. Time to give up?

@itix

Something similar to "can't find the device" IIRC. I could only click "OK" to get back to the window where you select what device to use. Will take another look later. It seems that it finds the built-in ethernetcard though but for some reason it cannot communicate with my router. I noticed a slowdown when I was fiddling with the network settings (the whole system became slower) but efter a reset it was back to normal again. That has only happened once.

I'll try without the router but other than that I don't know what the issue is? Drivers not compatible with my hardware perhaps.

EDIT: spelling error...

@Daedalus,

Hi, just wondered if you got your iBook G4 running MorphOS.

I recently bought an iBook G4 myself and wanted to use it for MorphOS but am having no luck installing.

Followed the instructions, downloaded the ISO which I burnt to a CD and then booted my iBook with the CD in while holding C.

It goes to the firmware screen but the keyboard locks up and can't amend so tried holding Alt down while booting and I get a screen with 2 icons one for MacX and one for MorphOS, I slect MorphOS and click on the arrow for next.

Once clicked on arrow I get to the firmware screen with a locked keyboard.

Have you any idea what I could be doing wrong?
