Question: Will MorphOS1.5 be released for PowerUP?

Question: How do I get access to the MorphOS mailing lists, FTP server and download portal ?
Answer: We are sorry to inform you that users of the free edition of MorphOS for PowerUP hardware are not obliged to access to the MorphOS mailing lists. Furthermore, they do not get access to the password-protected FTP server/download portal. If you would like to exchange yourself with other MorphOS users, we suggest to visit MorphZone.org.
Question: What is mossys: and sys:morphos ?
Answer: mossys: is an assign pointing to
sys:morphos. The idea is that sys:morphos is a private directory for the operating system and you
do not need to touch anything in it. A system upgrade will be done by
simply putting a new directory (old one can be renamed, for
instance). If you want to change the way the system is started,
simply edit s:user-startup.
Question: I'd like to replace some MorphOS components with 3rd party
equivalents. How do I do that ?
Answer: First of all, we
do not encourage you to do so. Once you start to replace system
files, you might experience severe instabilities.
If you want to replace a library, for example mossys:libs/foobar.library, put your 3rd party
foobar.library into libs: (which is sys:libs) and *rename*
mossys:libs/foobar.library to mossys:libs/foobar.library,old (you can use any
name but appending ',old' or ',mos145' is handy). The system will then fallback to
libs:foobar.library. But you should really refrain from doing that as
MorphOS libraries are heavily improved and extended compared to 3rd party
Question: Is it safe to install any kind of 3rd party MorphOS updates to MOSSYS:?
No. It might work, but as you can read above: we advise to
not do so. Only the MorphOS development team can make sure
that all components of MorphOS work together flawlessly. So do not
risk system stability by adding unofficial software components to MOSSYS:

Question: MLDonkey (or some other ixemul network app) fails now, what's going on?
Answer: Most likely you don't have usergroup.library in your LIBS: path, for AmiTCP
you must Assign LIBS: AmiTCP:libs/ ADD
Question: Why doesn't Genesis TCP/IP go automatically online anymore?
Make sure you have "Auto-Online" ticked from Interface Services page.
Question: Why doesn't AmiTCP/IP go automatically online anymore?
Make sure you have AmiTCP:bin/online >nil: <interfacename> in your
startnet script. It should be located after bringing the interface up with
AmiTCP:bin/ifconfig >nil: eth0 10.0.0.2 netmask 255.255.255.0
AmiTCP:bin/online >nil: eth0
Question: I cannot see 15/16/24 bits modes in screenmode requester of CandyFactory or
some other application. How come?
The application in question depends on buggy behaviour of the
original asl.library: The width/height/depth limits can be bypassed. You can
enable the original behaviour with 'setenv save asl/MODEREQ_EMULATEBUGS 1'.
