TLP works on PPC Linux, it really brings down power consumption a lot so all is not lost. :)

Ubuntu:
Code: [Select]
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:linrunner/tlp
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install tlp tlp-rdw
sudo service tlp start

Hi All,

I have some bad news for you.

Spectre660 has ended his support for the Sams.

Quote Spectre660:

@Xeno74 Thank you for your support but it is time for me to move on. The thread on Amigans.net (http://www.amigans.net/modules/xforum/viewtopic.php?topic_id=6332&forum=10) showed me the light.
He has deleted all Linux downloads, posts, and screenshots in the Hyperion forum.

@Spectre660: You have done a lot of very good work for us. Sorry about this. I'm so sorry.

Yet again the true believers of the Church of Latter Day Icon Twiddlers have chased off more development talent from the community.

Those idiots really would cut off their nose to spite their face.

Fools.

You need to read the whole thread really.
In fact all the poster did was ask why there was so much Linux discussion on Hyperion's forums, and ask if there was a way that the AmigaOS talk on the AmigaOS forum could be given precedence over the Linux talk so he didn't have to wade through Linux announcements to get to the AmigaOS ones. The bigger reason for Spectre660's quitting was more because his Sam460ex died on him.

I have read the whole thread, I also read this:

http://amigaworld.net/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?mode=viewtopic&topic_id=38195&forum=34&start=140&viewmode=flat&order=0#727422

He feels like he has been stabbed in the back by two faced hypocrites and I don't blame him.  I'd feel the same.

Sorry, it's not true. He has quit the Linux support because of the  thread on Amigans. It's over. I have decided to exit the Linux threads on Amigans. You find the last Linux downloads by Spectre660 on www.supertuxkart-amiga.de/amiga/sam.html . There are some screenshots of Linux PPC on Sams in the following thread: http://www.a1k.org/forum/showthread.php?p=699699#post699699 .
