    Oh, and one more thing - not that it really matters, but the display resolution I've achieved is 1920x1200, not 1080.

    Again thanks to everyone. I am so sorry about keeping mixing up the names.. I have a G4 Mac Laptop, 17in. It is now running MorphOS 3.11. I am in the process of relearning how to use it. It is fast. :) I do keep having it just "lock up" I don't know how else to describe it. I will be using it and suddenly the desktop will stop responding to input. I will not be able to move a window, click a button or anything. However what ever program was in focus at that time will keep going. When this happens to me, I have to hard boot to get out of it as I can't get to the normal shutdown. I do not know why. I have not installed but few things other than the base install. It also is happening on an other G4 laptop that I have.. So, I do not think it is the hardware per say. I am investigating, before I buy a license.

    Did you happen to hit the time limit of the free installation? Because that are the symptoms you are describing. If so, you just have to license it.

    No it isn't the timeout. It can happen only a couple of min after booting. I have seen the popup so I know the difference. And when I say it stops responding, I don't mean slowing down. I will be going along and all is good then it will just stop suddenly. When the popup comes up things get slow but I can at least shutdown. I am trying to figure out if I can recreate the issue but I can't seem to find that cause.

    Thanks for the link with the debug info. The next time it happens I will take a look and see what I can find.

    It's better to check it occasionally in normal use too, before the system goes totally broken. Usually there's some indication earlier if some program misbehaves.

    The first (and the simplest) thing to do is to run memtest. Get into shell and type:

    Code:

    Thanks everyone. So... last night I managed to finish up setting SongPlayer as my default.. now the GUI comes up and the music isn't some disembodied sound.. :) And.... no lock ups... Thanks for all the helpful information. I will keep it all in mind. I am now looking for a good image viewer. Native preferable. Also, are there any native video players? I am using MPlayer and it works fine, but when it starts it might as well launch fireworks that spell out... "I'm not a native program!"

    ShowCase is a really good program to view (and also process) images. It comes with the default MorphOS installation (in Applications dir)

    Hmm? It's a native port and incorporates very native looking MUI GUI... it's the best we have and I don't see anything wrong with it. Here are few tips to configure it: Configuring MPlayer

    https://library.morph.zone/Applications/ShowCase, it couldn't get more native ;-)

    There's an ancient VLC port but it has no advantage over MPlayer. And yes, MPlayer is also a port, but what's not "native" about it, especially in GUI mode?


    Edit: reloading the page before hitting "Reply" would have let me see jPV's reply and saved me from typing this drivel ;-)

    It's ok dude. I'm a little dense sometimes. So, telling me twice will help it sink in.
