    What's the point of listing these?

    I've got a peg one
    where do i type those commands?

    typing them in a shell gets a no device found kind of repsonse.

    The point is to list all the OF versions, all the board revisions and ask gently Bplan what changed between them.
    We may also learn that certain OF versions are matched with certain Hardware rev and know if depending on what OF version we have if an OF update to a newer version would make sense or not.

    If all this information is publically documented somewhere please advise.

    The commands are not to type in a DOS shell but at the Open Firmware prompt. If your Peg is set to autoboot you can press ESC when booting to reach the OF prompt.
    It looks that on (some ?) Peg1 the OF commands listed by Senex does not work. Peg1 owners please try to read the OF version if displayed at boot time (it may depends as some gfx card may not display it) and report the version here. For mainboard and CPU board rev you can always check it on the boards.

    Sometimes the OF revision release number and date is
    overwritten at OF prompt page by the OEM-Banner set by
    the reseller, to disable the OEM-banner it should be enough
    to type at prompt:

    setenv oem-banner false

    and reboot...

    Thanks toto and Bladerunner. Any other firmware around (Anyone with a pre-april or an april 1 firmware) ?

    If someone please can post similar pictures for CPU Board 1.0 and 1.2 then we can spot the differences :)
    I have a 1.2 CPU board but I am currently away from it. I may post a picture later if nobody does it.

    Here is the hard sell on the firmware:

    You are never going to know what the difference is between board revisions, and in any case it is not guaranteed to give you any hint by knowing what firmware revision is on it. Please do not "ask gently" or ask at all, as you will be met with what amounts to a disappointing response.

    The public differences: 2B4 and below used a Winbond clock chip. 2B5 and above use an ICS clock chip (see Power.org public specifications).

    Users should run the latest publically available firmware, if the one already installed on your system is not in fact much newer. For most Pegasos II owners this is the firmware that came with the machine. For the rest it's on the bplan site - but if you didn't upgrade already you probably broke your system doing setenv in firmware anyway :D

    There is no real intrinsic value to knowing how many hardware/software revision/combinations there are - in a very short time there will be a "1.3" firmware, for Pegasos II if not also for Pegasos I too, and EFIKA, and the HDB, and everything else, and it will all be useless information. Dare I say you are wasting your time with a boring numbers game?

    Neko,

    i guess some people here are not bored with number games but instead, are bored of bugged firmwares.
