@Antique

I usually write them in swedish for AZine, I might have to translate my best work I hear.

OK, so I can write a review you mean? ;)

Scanjet 5p and SAM?
Just popping in
Just popping in


I own a HP Scanjet 5p and I have a Tekram SCSI card that is supported by AmigaOS 4. Would it work to use the SCSI card in the PCI slot and connect the scanner to it while using the drivers included in Scanquix 5.5?

It would be good to know before I start to tinker with hardware that might not work with the SAM. I don?t have a SAM but I am planning to get one.

GLQuakeWOS is probably a bad game to try it with. I never got it to work on my AmigaOne but other WarpOS-applications worked fine.

Forget the AGP graphic card since there is no AGP port and also since Radeon M9 is as fast as a radeon 9250 PCI.


You?re right. It is practically a Radeon 9250 with 128 bit memory bus the have put in there. There is one advantage with M9 though, it has 3,5x AGP transfer speed in stead of 2x on the AmigaOne. The GPU is marginally slower on M9 952 MPixels/s instead of 960 on Radeon 9250. A Radeon 9200 has 1000 MPixels/s and a Radeon 8500 has 2000.

OK, good to know. That narrows the list of possible "towers" pretty much. That?s good, I would like to have room for a full size PCI card though. I am planning to use my Terratec 22 Producer sound card with it. SAM has a 33 Mhz PCI slot, right?

I was thinking of adding at least a standard SATA DVD-burner and possibly my old LS120. Wont I need more than 100 W for that?

@Niolator

Forget the question about the graphics card. I just found out that the M9 chipset is faster than both Radeon 9200 and 9250, it is in fact not much slower than a Radeon 8500.

Questions about SAM
Just popping in
Just popping in


I am strongly considering to buy a SAM 440EP but I have some questions that I hope can be answered first. Her they are:

- You can use a standard ATX PSU, right?

- Can I use a Radeon 9200 AGP graphics card? In other words, is there an AGP port on the board? If not, does it work with Radeon 9250 PCI?

- Will the AMCC 460 CPU be supported in the future? (Clock speed up to 1.4 GHz at the moment).

I am grateful for any help.

Oh, so that?s why. Thanks for the answer. Doing it manually is not a problem, I just felt lazy at the moment.

No, it is several MUI-classes, librarys and drivers that isn?t updated. I think it is 7-8 of them in total.

AmiUpdate not updating

I have a problem with AmiUpdate. It can scan my system just fine and AmiUpdate downloads the files in question but it can't update them. AmiUpdate managed to update itself though

I get an error message which says that it can't open the icon of the installerscript and then it tells me that I have to install the updates manually. Any tip on how I can correct the problem?

@Cool_amigaN

I recognize that. It gets dreadfully slow on higher levels and it doesn?t matter which CPU you run it on, it is as slow anyway. An AmigaOS 4-port that is playable above level 2 would be welcome .

Of course! Maybe they could change the Carlsberg logo to a more fitting Amiga logo.

Really? I didn?t even know that overlay works with slower Radeon either. I thought that it was still being worked on.

@Amigo1

Thanks for the offer. But I have no great need for fast 3D on my AmigaOne at the moment. By the time I do I am counting on Hyperion to have released the Mesa/OpenGL drivers. Maybe then we will have an entirely different range of graphics cards to choose between.

@AmiDog

I have heard that there could be problems with such cards due to the large memory. I wonder if there is some way to limit the reported AGP memory. I am using a card with exactly the same specs as your Radeon 9250.

Re: How to pick a video card

@kilaueabart

The 1x and 2x etc. I mentioned are the speeds at which the card can transfer data to the motherboard/processor. The AGP connector on the graphics card varies depending on which speeds it supports. Radeon 9200 and 9250 works fine in any slot including the AmigaOne?s. I am using a Radeon 9250 in my AmigaOne myself. The Radeon 9000 series and 8500 and earlier Radeons also works fine. But be warned: Radeon 8500/9100 are not supported by Warp3D as there is a bug in these cards that Hyperion has not compensated for in the Warp3D drivers.

@kilaueabart

Radeon 9600 and 9800 based cards are a little tricky on AmigaOne's as the AmigaOneXE only supports 1x and 2x AGP compatible cards. The reference cards from ATi does support 2x but many third party manufacturers have discarded the support for 2x and these cards only works with motherboards that supports 4x or 8x speeds.

I wouldn't recommend testing a card that you are not certain if it supports 2x as 2x cards run on 3.3v. 4x cards run on lower voltages and could be damaged by running on 3.3v. If you are unlucky your entire motherboard might become fried.

Most motherboards have a type of AGP bus in which only a certain type of card fits. For some reason the AmigaOne have a universal AGP bus which makes it possible to insert any AGP card no matter what voltage it supports.

edit: Grammar (better late than never).

@Chris

I just installed Wet and tried it for the first time in a very long time. It is a lot more stable for me than it was when I last used it (must have been a year ago or so). I also really like the docky. Thanks for a good program.
