Morphos The MorphOS team seems to be on a roll. Recently, they added support for the PowerPC G4 Mac mini models from Apple, meaning it suddenly became a lot easier to get your hands on a computer capable of running MorphOS. As expected, the team has now announced that a release with PowerMac G4 support is coming as well.

It has to be a Mac gfx card, due to Firmware used in that maschines. Pegasos and Efika can use "normal" gfx cards.

Thanks for the answer. I thought so, but I wasn't sure.

There are firmware updates available on the net which allow you to flash PC graphics cards for use in various PPC Macs. Use a PC to do the flashing and transfer to the PPC Mac.

I also had experience using a different graphics card pulled from a PC and put in my PPC mac. I don't think they necessarily needed to be "blessed" for the mac. If you have a card, just research if anyone else has used it in your particular model mac. I've had similar luck with RAM, HD, & peripheral cards as well.

Pegasos and Efika can use several normal graphics cards, yes, but not nVidia cards.
