Default Poseidon V3.4 for AmigaOS

News:
- New Ethernet Adapter class for Pegasus chipsets!
- New USB data link class!
- HID class fixes and improvements.
- Mass storage class can now automount CD/DVDs and
NTFS, given the filesystem is available.
- Several bugfixes.

Download the update either via Trident or from my homepage.
http://www.platon42.de/index2.html

Please also note that Poseidon V2.x keyfiles are now finally invalid for
Poseidon V3.4. I think nearly one year of testing should be enough time to
decide for an upgrade or not.

A release V3.4 for MorphOS is currently not planned as it will be part of
the MorphOS V1.5 update anyway.

What do you mean by "normal devices"? Is it possible that you confuse "PegasUs" with "PegasOs"? These are completely different things.

In fact, supporting USB Ethernet Adapters for the Pegasos, which has two 100MBit Ethernet ports, seems a bit silly. So this makes more sense for the classic Amigas without Zorro Ethernet card.

I hope we'll see a MOS-version soon. Of course I wouldn't mind if that version would come with other stuff attached, e.g. MOS 1.5. :-D

Subway USB is supplied with a Poseidon licence and can be connected to the clockport. Pop into our Cardiff office and have a look at the Subway USB.

Hi Chris,

Is there some other reason not to release the update for MorphOS other than "it will be included in 1.5 release"? Does the MorphOS version require 1.5 components or .. ?

Your software is exceptionally important part of of Amiga/AlikeOS.. for once us Pegsters get to be jealous towards 3.x users.. ggrrrrr :-)

Default Re: Poseidon V3.4 for AmigaOS

Chris,

I've been meaning to get in touch with you.

I asked Martin (Leviticus) Blom about interfacing AHI with a USB sound card. I purchased an Ion Audio record turntable with a USB interface (model iTTUSB from http://www.ionaudio.com). It has a built-in sound card, which I guess, interfaces through the HID.Device? I wanted to convert all my vinyl LP records to MP3s & CDs with this turntable using AudioEvolution, but the missing link is that AHI has yet to interface with a USB sound card.

I sent Martin a donation of 100 euros for this effort. He told me that he tried to get in touch with you and hasn't heard back. I guess that you were busy with the finishing touches on version 3.4, sorry.

Now that it's released, can you co-ordinate with Martin about an AHI interface with USB sound cards, if it's possible? Let us know, please.

Thanks in advance, and thanks for the update! :-D

P.S.: BTW, the PlusDeck from http://www.plusdeck.com (BTO) will soon have a USB model out for converting cassette tapes to .WAV & MP3s, as well, which I want to get, too.

@Rabbi:

I've replied to him the very same day I got his email (12.10.06) to martin at blom org. After getting no reply, I sent a "did you get my email" email on 26.10.06, again with no reply. So could you tell Martin to check his spamfilter or give me an alternate email address, in cast the email got filtered somehow.

@hooligan:

No, Poseidon V3.4 does not need MOS1.5 components as far as I know. However, it never has been tested on MOS 1.4.x.

The main two reasons are:
- There is hardly a functional benefit compared to V3.3 for Pegasos (why would you need an USB ethernet adapter on the Peg?)
- There have been a lot of problems with the PsdRomUpdate script, which doesn't really work well in terms of removing the old Poseidon from the boot image.

So, no need to be jealous. But before people start going into therapy, let me know, I might release a MOS version for the stubborn.

I guess not. I've searched all over the net, but I couldn't find out anything about this thing, except that it looks like some "no name" made in China.

For the Pegasus chipset you might need to watch out for some older, bigger adapters, in most cases USB 1.1.
