Public release of MorphOS 3.2
« on: May 27, 2013, 10:24:37 PM »
MorphOS 3.2 is out. And the update is simply massive!
Support for G5s, more Powerbooks, g4 ibooks and R300 3D-support are highlights at the hardware side, a new netstack (much faster!) and many, many more improvements, additions are part of this free update.

IMPORTANT:

The current iso file has a corrupted boot.img that fails on Mac computers. Don't burn the iso unless you want to install to Pegasos or Efika. Wait for a fixed iso (should be released very soon) for Mac computers..

Thank you very much MOS-Team, truly the best coders in the Amiga scene by far! :)

So I shouldn't just copy the files from the iso image to MOSSYS: then?

No without the 3.2 boot.img (i.e. with teh 3.1 boot.img) MorphOS 3.2 will not work properly. Wait for the fix.

I guess the boot.img is just wrongly zipped or something like that, hence I expect the fixed iso really soon (tonight or tomorrow).

Command back - I was messing with the wrong boot.img.
_Update_ process on macs is easy:
Copy boot.img from the CD's drawer Mac_ppc32 to your boot: partition (mount it if necessay) by hand, then boot from teh CD and proceed with teh installation. That way worked fine for me, but be careful when messing with teh boot: partition, you can render your system easily to non booting.

I just saw a comment on morphzone saying the same thing, thanks anyway. :)

Piru (1): "We've identified the issue that makes the ISO unbootable, and are now trying to identify the root cause for the problem. Apologies for the trouble this has caused. We're looking to fix the issue as soon as possible."

Piru (2): "We're making progress and if all goes well will have a fixed ISO momentarily."

So hold your horses a few more minutes, and watch Pirus status reports on the matter in this MZ thread!
.

EDIT:

Piru (3): "New ISOs are now online. This new image should resolve the issue of not being able to boot the ISO properly. If you however managed to install the earlier ISO (via copying the boot.img manually for instance) there is no need to install or upgrade again. Apologies again for the inconvenience caused."

:)

(BTW, that was really fast response!)

Great, problem solved! Everyone is free do download away again (remember, it doesn't cost anything at all to download and try the full version of MorphOS. Unregistered [demo]versions has about 30 minutes uptime before the OS turns unbearable slow, but it's fast to reboot, and you can reboot as many times you want, and it's really a full version during those 30 demo minutes, no other limitations!

:)

If your HW is listed here, then simply download your free MorphOS ISO Here!

:D

Doesn't seem so? While they do have expanded the supported range of PowerBoks downwards quite a bit from the top-of-the-line models they previously supported (now they support *all* Aluminium models with Radeons), I think they drew the line there, just before the Ti models. Who knows, maybe they will support the older and slower Ti generations in the future, who knows?
