Powerbook G4 Latest Os

  

Your friend's PowerBook G4 is probably too new to be supported by your 'universal' 9.2 boot disc. The last few generations of Macs which could boot Mac OS 9 require a model-specific 9.2.2 disc which came with the computer. Looking through MacTracker, only the original PowerBook G4 (Jan 2001 to Oct 2001) would be old enough to boot from 9.2. The PowerBook Firmware Update 4.2.9 will only run on 550MHz or 667MHz PowerBook G4 computers running Mac OS 9.1 or later from a local drive. If you are using Mac OS X you must boot from a local.

This is a list of complete computer setups for MorphOS use. More detailed harware support information is available at http://morphos-team.net/hardware

MorphOS has certain limits for the main memory on all supported systems. Quark kernel can use up to 2GiB of memory and ABox up to 1.7GiB. If more than 2GiB of memory is installed, it is just ignored. Some systems also have lower physical limits.


Genesi Hardware

Powerbook G4 Latest Os

In the beginning of the MorphOS journey, Genesi and bPlan played an important role of the early MorphOS development in many fundamental ways. Providing resources was one, providing a new HW platform was another. Although Genesi and the MorphOS Team later moved in separate directions, a legacy remains in the shape of two official Genesi systems that MorphOS runs on, and a few mainboards (motherboards) besides that.

Of course, those mainboards were also used as a central component by *several* third party resellers when they put together their own various systems (of various configurations) for their customers that probably still is available from time to time on the second hand market. Those systems are not listed here though.

These mainboards that MorphOS runs on are:

  • Pegasos 1 ('original'/unfixed), 750CXe G3 @ 600MHz
  • Pegasos 1 (April 1), 750CXe G3 @ 600MHz
  • Pegasos 1 (April 2), 750CXe G3 @ 600MHz
  • Pegasos 2, 750CXe G3 @ 600MHz
  • Pegasos 2, MPC7447 G4 @ 1.0GHz
  • Efika 5200B

As previously mentioned, many systems were put together by numerous third party dealers based on these motherboards.

Official systems based on these were:

(BTW, The Efika mainboard, the case, and a bundle of board and case, can still be purchased new from Directron.com)

Mac mini

Powerbook g4 latest os update

We are many who has fallen in love with the Mac Mini, a very small footprint, highly integrated, silent, yet very powerful G4 computer. All models works fine with MorphOS, but if you can, you should look for the 1.5GHz silent upgrade version that has 64MB Video Memory. You *can* use MorphOS with the 32MB coming with the other versions (depending on how you use the computer, you may want to turn off some visual 'bells and whistles' that MorphOS offers), but with 64MB you will have your back covered in a better way. And this is not something specific to the Mac Mini, but to MorphOS in general — if you have the option to get 64MB or more of Video Memory, do it!

Here is a list of supported Mac Mini machines, with links to the great 'everymac.com' site with loads of additional, detailed information on each and every one of these:

  • Mac Mini G4/1.33 (silent upgrade)
  • Mac Mini G4/1.5 (silent upgrade, with 64MB VRAM)

eMac

The eMac line, originally released exclusively to the education market and later available to the consumer market as well, features an all-in-one case design and affordable performance. It's especially 'affordable' today, when you most certainly will pick one up for $0 (or thereabout). It has a CRT built in, which may show some blurry signs of age by now. But hey, its extremely low cost in combination with MorphOS and a G4 performance that 'traditional Amigan's' only dreamt of, may very well make this machine interesting.

Here is a list of the supported eMac machines (those not listed here aren't supported), with links to the great 'everymac.com' site with loads of additional, detailed information on each and every one of these:

  • eMac G4/1.25 (USB 2.0) (This was also sold as 1.0 GHz version to educational market and it is supported too, but don't mix it to 1.0 GHz PowerMac4,4 which doesn't work.)

Power Macintosh G4

NVIDIA cards are not supported by MorphOS and would need to be replaced with a suitable Radeon card instead. Special Mac versions of Radeon cards should be used. A GFX card with 64MB or more VMEM is recommended.

Audio is currently only supported for PowerMac3,4 to 3,6 models.

DP = Dual Processors, but MorphOS only supports using one CPU, the other one will be sitting idle.
