Sam460CR + OS4.1 Final Edition question!

Post by Everblue »

I am waiting to purchase a Sam460CR, which my wild guess, is that it will come bundled with the OS4.1 Final Edition disc. I will be building my own system (probably) with a 5450 video card.

Now the problem lies with the fact that the Sam460CR does not have any on-board videocard. So, assuming that the latest A-EON Radeon drivers are not included on the CD, how would one go around installing Amiga OS4.1 AND getting a video output from the 5450 video card?

Thanks in advance!

The Radeon HD driver v1.2 will be on the CD

That's great! Where will we be able to buy the AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition CD? I guess AmigaKit, right? :)

Hello

The RadeonHD 1.2 is a free upgrade for customers who have bought v1 from us.

It is not included in the Final Edition. We recently commissioned a new Lite Edition of the RadeonHD driver.

We are working with ACube/Hyperion currently to enable a Lite Edition of the RadeonHD for emergency boot purposes of the AmigaOS CD.

Nothing "murky" here- sorry- cannot understand your comment.

@everblue

Forgot to add that RadeonHD supports selected 5000, 6000, 7000 and R5, R7, R9 cards: see Amiwest Press Release for more detail:

This is fantastic news, and I guess, explains the Sam460CR as my guess is that it will be bundled with the system/motherboard. Kudos to Amigakit and everyone else involved.

Actually i have to adapt my answer above a little.

According to AmigaKit on this AmigaWorld.net thread the Radeon v1.2 driver will not be on the FE CD.

Rather a stripped down version is in production to give new users the ability to boot from the CD
AmigaKit in the AW.net thread

It's surely going to be great anyway :) I assume it's the 2.4 version of RadeonHD that will be on the AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition CD? Probably a wild guess. I might be wrong. :)

No.

2.4 will be sold seperately through AmiStore once available

More can be found in the ress release

So the 'lite' version WILL be included on OS4.1 FE disc, right?
