One question: Does a current version of Perl currently come with Syllable?

Syllable does not include Perl in the basic installation but we do maintain a binary package. You can find it on

I wish to boot from my dual channel Adaptec UW2 SCSI controlled hard drives, and is the old Matrox Millenium 1 supported???

You might be able to use the BIOS drivers to access your SCSI drives, but Syllable does not have any "native" SCSI drivers. Just ask on the Syllable forums and we can help you set up Syllable to do that.

The Millenium I is supported, and I even have one in the machine next to me, but some revisions have display problems (Green vertical strips) which I have not been able to identify. At the moment 2D accellerated rendering is also only available on the Millenium II and up, so scrolling and dragging windows can be slow. If I find some time I'd like to re-write the rendering code so it will work on the Millenium I but I don't know when that might be.
