OS4 on Mac

OS4 on Mac Mini boots... http://tinyurl.com/2ld9sk Certainly adds a new spin to this discussion doesn't it... http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=33668 Mods, do you think you'll reverse your ban on AmigaMac?

I think the ban should be reversed.

AmigaMac's OS4 boot CD works. He tried to share it and was banned. I think he deserves a big thank you, and a big apology!

He had the same mysterious behaviour at amigaworld.net too, as soon as you ask him a question he's silent as a clam or dissapears

Yes, it's fair to say he didn't exactly help himself...

Someone at Amiga.org says he got it working but the video showing it posted yesterday is gone already and I get a feeling you can just boot the installer cd and see the OS4 kickstart screen..nothing special really if you can 't partition the harddrive and install OS4 on it and then boot into OS4

It's not a hoax. It works. I've seen the video. And once you're at kickstart, it's only a matter of time before someone works out how to boot an OS4 installation CD.

I expect Alex took it down to avoid repercussions from AInc. Don't really want to host it myself for the same reason. I could share it on eMule?

Repercussions from AInc. ? They are incapable of doing anything, surely uploading it some site would be no problem

And why could he just not write little readme of how to use it ? A video is not a very good proof IMO.

Please share the file. The torrent will be removed shortly so create new torrents, put it on web space, share it on eMule, whatever you want.

Something is strange about this torrent, i had to save it and open in Explorer.
Why create a new one ? It will stay forever if we keep seeding it.
The .torrent File would be safe at .org or maybe amitorrents.net.

That's normal for torrents. You save the torrent file then open it in a torrent client to download the file.

That file will only be available until I close my laptop I don't want to host the file forever. If others want to re-share the file as a torrent, won't they have to create a new torrent file?

Ok, I will consider it.

No. I downloaded many torrents, and all i had to do was click the Link to the .torrent File. Azureus launches and starts downloading.

The .torrent File has Tracker Information, the Tracker connects Seeders / Leechers.
No direct Connection to your Machine in the .torrent.
