Hello Amithlonians et all,

I want to report another laptop that seems to have a good driver support for Amithlon and KERN310. The IBM A31 has a Pentium 4 M 1.6Ghz, an ATI Mobility Radeon 7500 which is partially accelerated, Audio supported with AC'97, Ethernet Intel Pro 1000. It also has a Mini PCI port under to fit a Prism2 Wifi card if you can find one.

Sure the laptop looks like a clunk from ancient computer times but it works like a charm and the display quality is quite nice, despite the 1024x768 resolution.

With the custom OS 3.9 install found on the Alpyre Amithlon CD which contains AFAOs and other great software, looks almost as if it is running OS4.

I'll try to snap some pictures and post them here but in the mean time you can look at specs for this not so known machine here: https://www.ibm.com/common/ssi/cgi-b...appname=skmwww

I downloaded it a long time ago from the author's web site who goes by Alpyre on this very forum thread.

http://commodore.gen.tr/adp/amithlon...neyece%C4%9Fim

The links however do not seem to work but you can probably email the author. His email is in the link and I think you can PM him in here.

To show what Amithlon looks like here is an image of his work (not my IBM A31 but looks just like that)

If somebody still has an image of one of the Alpyre CDs we could put in on the file server.

Thx! btw. is a matrox-mystique 4MB PCI directly supported in the kernel (emubox.gz) or does it require vesa-mode with "video=dovesa" in amthlon / small ? I am a bit confused on this because it only works with "dovesa" and then it's locked at 640x450x8bit...but it should do 16bit and higher resolutions.

Thx!
