Morphos In a classic case of "two more weeks", the MorphOS team has actually finally really I'm-not-kidding-you released MorphOS 2.0. This release was long-awaited, and comes packed with so many new features they might as well have called it MorphOS 3.0. "The MorphOS development is proud to announce the public release of the much anticipated version 2.0 of MorphOS. For an overview of the included new features and updates, please read our release notes. A description of the hardware requirements and installation procedures can be found here."

So I have an Efika and must be a little interested in Morph OS to buy one..
Well I purchased my Efika with an XGI card like a few other people.
The XGI card has been a total waste of space, try finding decent PPC drivers for X Windows that can drive it, so I have been mainly running Debian on the Efika and mainly in text mode.
Well it made a half decent syslog server for my ADSL router.
I have PCs lying around turned off that are several times faster and worth (well nothing.) but they would have certainly used more power to run and been louder.
So for the moment of truth I follow the instructions and i get as far as
"Quark Kernel loaded" and no further.
Perhaps MOS2 does not support the graphic card that was by default shipped by GENESI with the Efika. The chip is an SIS chip so I thought it might be on that supported list.
So it goes. Anyway I have ordered a RADEON 9250 of EBAY - after waiting for some months a few more weeks wont really hurt, I am looking forward to seeing Morphos running.
