List of PPC versions of software and alternate libraries for OS3.9

Right, so I've installed OS3.9 from scratch (AmigaSYS was good, but i've outgrown it and want my own OS customised to my taste now) and I'm looking to tailor my OS to suit my hardware. The big part of that is my BPPC.

is there a list of libraries that will make use of my PPC? and if not, shall we create one?

Also looking for a one-stop-shop of PPC versions of software, like internet, productivity suites etc.

I know that audio players like AmigaAMP have mmu/fpu/060 versions, but i'm looking for PPC versions to make better use of the beast sitting silently alongside my 060

obviously i'm scouring Aminet for the more obvious/easy to get PPC stuff right now (but still need help for the less obvious stuff!!!), and i came across this:

Quote:
Short: Use your PPC as the ultimate 68k!
Author: sraghoeb@ocenl.nl (Sharwin & Rakesh Raghoebardayal)
Uploader: sandoz speed a2000 nl (Sander Assenbroek Machielsen)
Type: dev/asm
Version: 1.10 Promo
Replaces: dev/asm/PPC680x0.lha AND dev/asm/PPC680x0Final.lha
Architecture: m68k-amigaos

PPC680x0 PROMO 1.10

This new Aminet promotional release is not just a little update to the
previous versions which are/were available on Aminet. As a matter of fact,
most of the program has been changed, fixed and optimized to a much more
powerful program than it was before.

What is PPC680x0???

PPC680x0 is a utility to convert extensive 680x0/Amiga assembly sourcecodes
to optimized PowerPC/Amiga assembly sourcecodes. 'Amiga' code means, that all
the library calls of older 68K-based Amiga programs can be detected and
converted as well: library-using programs can even be made ready-to-run after
conversion. PPC680x0 is not just a porting utility, but also a 68K backwards
compatible machine language for the PPC family. You can program the PowerPC
as if it is a very big 68060 with 32 integer registers and a lot more.

Besides, PPC680x0 can assemble G4 (and higher) AltiVec commands and convert
them to a format usable with Haage & Partner's Storm PowerAsm.

So does it work?

Yes, of course it does: why should we waste our time on a program that
doesn't even work at all? There's an example with and without the use of a
reassembler in the archive, so find it out for yourself...! A lot of 68K
programs can run on native PPC after a standard procedure and a push on a
button...!

PPC680x0 takes advantage of the pipelining mechanism of the PowerPC family
and tries to optimize the code as far as possible.

Lets hope this will make programming and porting easier for all of you and
that there will appear a lot more PPC versions of programs soon.

Kind regards,

Sharwin & Rakesh

Has anyone tried it?

Other commercial software includes Tornado3D, Candy Factory pro and Wildfire 7. There was another image manipulation app, more of a toy that allowed real-time image morphing effects. The name escapes me atm.

My personal favourite free app has to be AMP (or AMP2). A great mpeg,vcd player.

You are referring to Fantastic Dreams.

Also add X-DVE 3.50 to the list

Oops, my fault. But image2icon and Eastern are from Stephan Rupprecht so i thought there were both 68k, WOS and OS4-Versions. Sorry. But there ist another PPC-Program: ShowPPC: http://aminet.net/search?query=showPPC
