Reports : : Sam460 may get MorphOS and HaikuOS support
Posted By: ausPPC. on 2012/12/25 7:41:28
Frank Mariak was at Pianeta Amiga with MorphOS on an ACube Sam460 and Francois Revol was also there with his early efforts of porting Haiku to the same platform.

Apparently, this can be queried here - projectnaomo@morphos-team.net
Other resources: ACube@facebook - HaikuOS@Pianeta

    From the last link: "Genesi Efika I & II" listed under "PowerPC"
    Have there really been two Efika PPC incarnations? I only know the Efika 5200B.

    I'm pretty sure it was this forum quite a few years back (as I'm saying this, I realise I can't hold a candle to Andreas' innate cross reference of this site...) - the post included a picture of a hand (I think) holding a PPC Efika with extra memory soldered onto the normally empty pads on the other side of the board. Someone tried a diy with their own board after that but it wasn't a success...

    Oops... Was that a forum bug or did I mess up? The above was supposed to be a new post, not an edit.

    > Someone once showed off a PPC Efika with 256mb...

    You mean an Efika 5200B? I must have missed that.
    Genesi once announced Efika 5121e and Efika 8610, but I doubt that any of those is what's referred to on that Haiku page, as there were never real boards.

    > But maybe the ARM Efika has been mistaken for PPC?

    Genesi Efika MX is listed under ARM on that same page.

    Maybe they're actually referring to the Pegasos I & II?

    Yes, this may be the case.
