Yeah, I'm super impressed with the presentation so far.

The install was smooth and simple, but I removed the Mac hard drive just out of paranoia. I guess I'll need to figure out dual booting at some point.

Thanks for the links
There was a tutorial for dual booting...I can find it's url?
I used it on my mac mini and it worked fine. Have to use the alt key at bootup to select which OS.

I recommend making boot partition larger than 2GB. Personally I gave up using traditional he setp where the system and applications are on separate partitions. I just install everything to the system partition.

FFS and SFS have 127 GB partition size limit, PFS 104 GB. Using larger hard disks than that is fine, though.

SFS and PFS have decent repair programs so they might be better in that respect than FFS.

IceFS is only native file system with large file support and supports larger partitions than just 127 GB. NTFS etc support large files.

...and don't forget the rather excellent IceFS:

I tested iceFS once and got read/write error after the first reboot.

What are the limitations on the size of files? I work in video, so I've got single video files my home NAS that are over 40GB each and might want to play one some day.

Unless you are splicing many low to medium resolution videos together, I am guessing that those 40GB+ video files are HD, or Blu-Ray ripped files, which to my knowledge, can't be played on MorphOS yet.  In fact, I don't think the PPC MacOSX can play Blu-Ray iso files either.

If you find out something different, then let me know.  I have been working on archiving all of my movies over the last year and I am interested in figuring out the best setup for storage and playback possibilities, without buying any expensive new hardware.

Congrats on getting your G5 PowerMac and enjoy your learning period on MorphOS.  I personally think it is the best Amiga inspired alternative, unless you are only interested in playing old 68k games, then you are better off just using the real thing, or if you no longer have a Classic Amiga, using UAE.
How are you helping the Amiga community? :)

It might work. I can play true HD movies in H264 MP4 comprimation on my 2.7 GHz Powermac G5. Not bad for a single core :)

I don't do ripped isos, but I have a lot of HD and SD video in other formats. Mostly h.264 and mpeg2 in various containers (mov, m2ts, mp4, mpg, mkv).

I haven't looked into what's available for playback yet, but I assumed there was a player for for those, if not a simple editor.

Thanks, it seems fun so far, but I'm starting to wonder if there's anything for me to contribute. The ecosystem seems pretty damn good so far. I'm more of a developer than a user. When I use a computer, it's usually to browse and write code.

PFS3's limit is 104GB.

Anyway, using default SFS is the easiest and most used filesystem on MorphOS. And you can  use many partitions to fill the whole HD if it's bigger than supported max partition size.

MPlayer is the best for video playback. Install it with Grunch (http://www.geit.de/eng_grunch.html) or get it directly from http://fabportnawak.free.fr/mplayer/

Community will be very pleased of any coding effort :) There are gaps to fill still.

@Hieroglyph

MPlayer should play them without problem.

There is always something a coder could do. Maybe take up a bounty or two ;)

Go to MorphZone and ask where you can be of use. There will be something, I guarantee!

Ah yes, the standard file system is SFS, not FFS. Sorry.

OP, are you into games at all? I love the games by: Cherry Darling (Voxel Bird and Ace of Hearts). Voxel Bird is completely free (Flappy Bird style game but in 3d).

Also, if you want to use basic screen dragging, you can use Dragon. Lucy is for Transparent Windows.

That is great to read and know.  I haven't tried to playback any HD content on MorphOS using MPlayer yet, other than an occasional 720p YouTube video.

I need to get myself back up to speed on the latest MorphOS info, before the 2014 AmiWest Show begins, so I can answer questions better.  I will be displaying MorphOS running on at least a couple of systems during the show for people to test it and see how great it is.

I'm not that into games, but Dragon is interesting.


So I tried to install the Pack Chrysalis 3.7.1 on two different clean installs, but I get errors at startup.

Error 6 in line 124: Unterminated comment
Command returned 10/6

I don't see anything that tells me what has the error and I see nothing I could have done to cause it.

Any ideas or should I just write that pack off as crapware?

Edit: Ok, so I found crabum.rexx in the wbstartup folder and removing it makes that error go away.  I don't see anything noticable in line 127 though...

Edit 2: There WAS a missing ' a few lines up though.  Adding that seems to have fixed the issue.
