In what country are you? Due to georestrictions it is difficult to name a livestream which works everywhere, but does your country's TV companies have streams which have the the option to choose the resolution?

I deducted from the "supertuxcart.de" that you must be in Germany...?-) If that is correct, you should be able to run all ISU's livestreams, like this one which will be running on Sunday noon: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VQgg3M_aX7E . In that stream's settings there should be the option '1080p HD'. It should be available also later as a video, if you cannot test it live.

Hi Roland,

I tested it on my AmigaOne X5000/40 today. ViewTube doesn't work with the live streams of YouTube. Without ViewTube I have wrong colors in Arctic Fox, SpiderWeb, Pale Moon, and PowerFox but with the old Firefox without ViewTube it works with the correct colors and with about 60% CPU load.

Thank you for testing that stream! It is good to know that the raw CPU power of X5000/40 is enough to run SHD, even without ViewTube. I wish A-Eon will get it soon available!-) For AmigaOS without SMP it is not yet very useful but Linux is a different story.

BTW, have you in any circumstances experienced overheating problems with your X5000/40? Some beta testers has mentioned that issue is but it may be due to the fan used in beta boards.

I haven't noticed any overheating problems yet.

Could you please check GCC?

Hello Fienix friends,

It would be surely interesting to be able to run FS-UAE on Fienix. What do you think about ?

I don't have my X5000 set up yet. I'll try if I can find some time this week. I think I've used gcc since the last update but I can't remember for sure.

Hi Casey,

Could you please add Debian’s new Mesa packages to the Fienix repository?

Thanks,
Christian
