Morphos As we all know, the MorphOS team recently released MorphOS 2.4, which added support for the PowerPC G4 version of Apple's Mac Mini. Even though this long-awaited 'feature' is a very welcome one, I personally think that of all the G4 Macs MorphOS could support, the Mini is the least interesting. As such, I want to find out if any other G4 Macs happen to be supported too - without us knowing about it.

trying to hack it with OF

I tried to fool the MorphOS' bootstrapper using the following (in OF):

dev /rom/boot-rom
.properties
" Apple PowerMac 10,2 4.9.4f1 BootROM built on 07/12/05 at 16:57:27" encode-string " model" property
boot cd:\mac_ppc32\boot.img

But it continues to refuse to boot.
My machine is PowerMac3,4 and videocard is "0001:10:15.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Radeon RV100 QY [Radeon 7000/VE]" (it is listed as supported on their site).
