G-Rex 1200, openPCI, and usb cards...

Ok, so on the openpci site, it says that py using their openpci.library and the poseidon stack and the arakattack usb driver, it is possible to use a normal pci usb card on the amiga... is it true?
Also I thought I needed to flash the grex to use openpci, but now I see it only needs a library in Libs: ??? has anyone tried that?

OpenPCI won´t work with GRex in the moment .... the website tells something different I know, but several users around the globe tested it

@Bamiga2002

I have just installed a USB 2 card in my Mediator, and Poseidion picks it up with the OpenPCI USB driver. Unfortunately when I try to access any USB devices attached the computer locks up (not even the normal keyboard reset responds). I'm guessing it is down to a messy setup, so I'll have to do some cleaning soon.

or perhaps a lock from elbox, to force the usage of spider cards...

Thnx for the link. And yes, i wouldn´t want to pay 4 x extra for an "Amiga only" USB card . I´ll give openPCI a try. I should have ordered mediator earlier when they shipped a free spider with it.

OpenPCI is only suitable for Amithlon in the moment .... there´s no real GRex and/or Mediator support
