PowerMac G4 "Yikes!"
« on: November 27, 2010, 07:50:51 AM »
Hi all,

Is this model supported?

I get "Quark/OpenFirmware Console Failed" when trying to install.

Also, if it is supported, will using a non-supported graphics card cause this? I've not got the original card, there is an ATI 9200 128mb card installed.

Or maybe I need to do a firmware upgrade first?

Any help greatly appreciated.

PZ.

It is not supported. This Power Mac doesn't have an AGP slot.

Supported models are:
Code: [Select]
System ID       Model
Power Mac 3,1   AGP-Graphics
Power Mac 3,2   AGP-Graphics
Power Mac 3,3   Gigabit Ethernet
Power Mac 3,4   Digital Audio

Power Mac 3,5   - Quick Silver
                - Quick Silver 2002
Power Mac 3,6   - Mirrored Drive Doors
                - FW 800
                - Mirrored Drive Doors 2003
Power Mac 3,4 to 3,6 have audio support for the integrated audio chip (for other models it's possible to use a supported PCI audio card of course). Some very early models have a network chip that is not supported by the included network driver (but you can work around this by using a PCI network card, such as RTL8139).

MorphOS 2.6 release has a problem with 7450 CPU. This will be addressed in the MorphOS 2.7 release that should arrive shortly.

MorphOS 2.7 addresses the 7450 issue.

Beat you to it by about 6 mins :)

Though I am sure there is a news item waiting to be approved :)
