INTRODUCTION:
This 40.35 version of 68060.library is an update of the last
40.343 version by Carsten Schlote. This is a really good
"Generic" 68060.library with a few useful updates.

Updates (by SpeedGeek):
- Disables the Store Load/Bypass for CPU Rev. 0,1 and 5
- Some Global mappings changed to Non-Global
- Enables $E00000 Extended ROM as Cache Writethrough
- Allocates only Fast RAM for moving the VBR
- Library init code now safely exits in a 68040 system

NOTES: It works very well with TurboMMU040+ and
FastCache040+! Please understand a "Generic" library does
NOT offer support for all the features of proprietary 3rd
party accelerator cards.

REQUIREMENTS:
- Amiga with 68060 CPU and FPU

DISCLAIMER (For updates):
Use at your own risk. No warranty expressed or implied, etc.

USAGE:
- Copy to LIBS:
- OS3.1 Setpatch loads the "Dummy" 68040.library first
- OS3.9 Setpatch directly loads the 68060.library

CREDITS: Thanks very much to Carsten Schlote (Danke Schon!)

HISTORY:
v40.35 - Update release of 40.343

If all I have to do is copy to Libs, I'll give a try! Thanks!   :)

I have been using this for a few weeks on my 80 MHz '060 and AmigaOS 3.1.4, and I can say it seems to run more stable. I would guess about half as many system crashes, but I do push my system really hard.

** NEWS UPDATE **

Changed requirements to 68060 CPU and FPU due to Mathesar's reported problem with LC060 compatibility.

Sorry for posting in this thread (not sure if there's another more appropriate or should I start a new one instead), but I'm a bit confused at the moment. As I understand by reading in these forums, not all 68060 library builds are equally compatible with all cards, so I thought of asking for your experiences: I'm about to receive from eBay a Blizzard Phase 5 68060 / 75Hz / 64MB (non-PPC) for my A1200 (which now has a 68030 card) and I should prepare my CF card accordingly. So, in order to avoid any screw ups:

Should I be looking to a specific 68060 lib build for this card ?
Do I only have to copy the lib file in LIBS: dir and reboot ? Is that the only installation step in order to take advantage of the card ?
Does Workbench version make any difference ? (the CF has OS 3.9 at the moment)

Thank you in advance.
Best regards,
/A

Setpatch command loads support libraries, it should be new enough!! OS3.5 or 3.9 or 3.1.4 versions are OK.

You can install the MuTools from Aminet http://aminet.net/package/util/libs/MMULib this is all you Need and up to date...

or the original Libs from Phase 5 http://phase5.a1k.org/ If you have OS 3.9 with BoingBag2 installed, the 68040 dummy library is not necessary anymore...

you should use MMULib...... copying the 68060.library to libs is enough for booting

EDIT Ups... Utri007 was faster :)

The Amiga community, you got to love it. Thank you all for the lightning fast replies.

MMULib it is, then. Time to revisit good ol' WinUAE and update the CF card according to your instructions.  :)

Cheers.
