Installing MorphOS 3.12 on PowerMac G5
  • Just looking around

    Hello everybody,

    I just bought a PowerMac11,2 DP 2GHz and I'm trying get MorphOs 3.12 working on it.
    I already have a G4 MacMini with MorphOs 3.11 working perfectly.

    The first thing I did was to buy an ATI Radeon card for the G5 and it worked, I had no problem installing MorphOS 3.12.

    But I have 2 issues to solve now:
    1) The Gigabit Ethernet card is not detected. Trying to figure out why.
    2) I does not come with a WIFI Card, so I need to know what card can I buy to have that working. ┬┐Any suggestions?

    Thanks for your help and I really appreciate all the time you spend on updating MorphOS.

    Do you mean 11,2 Dual Core (not DP) or 7,2/7,3 DP (Dual Processor)?


    Sorry, 11,2 Dual Core

    So does this mean that MOS 3.12 now supports PowerMac11.2 a bit more?
    I remember there was the problem with the fans spinning at full speed on this machine.

    OK, cool.
    Could I just move the the SD drive from a 7.3 to a 11.2 after installing MOS 3.12?

    Yep, that should work (of course except for the licence key).
