    MorphOS doesn't have swap. The 128MB partitions are required for padding by OSX. It's best not to touch them.

    how long is the gparted HD shrinkage supposed to take? I've been waiting 2.5hrs now but all i see is the applying pending operations status bar sliding back and forth and 0 of 3 operations completed. Did I do something wrong perhaps?

    there is also a check file sys under details for errors on the mac partition

    disregard it went through, and on to the next step of the long awaited install of Morphos

    You probably didn't uncheck the Round to cylinders in all partition windows. Since you didn't, GParted decided to move your existing OSX partition by a few MB. But it's also possible that your data was so fragmented that GParted had to move it around a lot to make room.

    When i'm to partition using gparted, i shrinked the partition and left 10gb for mos, then proceed to create the new hfs partition of 64mb, but then the big partition for morphos keep unallocated, and if i try to create new i can only create a hfs(not hfs+), and in order to have the full space it has to be allocated, because as primary, it only allow me 2gb.
    Am i doing anything wrong?. Is that correct to let the partitions as i commented?(1 64mb partition hfs and the 9.9xxx partition as extended with hfs?
    Thanks in advance!!!

    Read the PDF again. I specifically wrote to select 'unformatted' in the File system selector for the big MorphOS partition.

    I should have gotten rid of this guigfx a long time ago.
    Anyway, command line mode also works in case GUI doesn't, FYI. :)

    I by mistake don't uncheck the Round to clilinders checkbox. will it trash the osx partition, or simply will take long to make changes?

    @ Fab

    can't get 2player mode going tried quick set-up and mame config but nothing on two player


    actually, got it going, j1 plays 2nd player and vice versa but v.113 seems the best, with my rom set. no 3p and 4player support on that ver. though, and the "special 3/4player ver .121" the roms don't work any idea? the roms are present, but maybe an executable issue?

    You need a ROM Set matching as much as possible the MAME version, of course, since they can be redumped in the meanwhile. That's not an "executable issue". :)

    Is anybody else encountering problems accessing Open Firmware main (command line-based) menu? I tried cmd+option+o+f as suggested on the unofficial OS X dual boot guide, but I was finally able to enter that menu by turning on the Mac Mini and keeping the power button pressed.

    By the way, new user here (and loooong time Amiga enthusiast), who just got a Mac Mini G4 just to be able to run MorphOS 2.4 :-)

    I have no problem reaching the open firmware even with my apple wireless keyboard. Of course for mos i need a usb one as the wireless is not recognized.
