As bplan GmbH announces, the version of the Open Firmware shipped with the Pegasos II is faulty: after changes made by "setenv" the system does not boot anymore! You can find the needed update at http://www.bplan-gmbh.de/update_d.html. (German; english version to follow.)

Mouhahaha! They should've done like the Certified and Licensed professionals - make some users pay for exchange of the physical firmware chips if they at least want semifunctional hardware! Downloading an upgrade just like most computer users in the world... That's UNPROFESSIONAL! The Peg users aren't PROTECTED! ;')



What's this then, at 0x199BE?

"Initializing Artitia [sic]....Configuring SDRAM"

Just some old junk that was left behind? The bplan page says "Do not use this update for Pegasos I mainboards."

Rushed out product indeed.
First broken installer script and now buggy firmware, wierd how users
reporting everything is so *fast* and wonderful. These "reports" must be
fake. I wouldn't touch a product like this before a few months have gone by
to make sure all the bugs are fixed.

Maybe it's to wake up "Harriet Artitia Gordon", I doubt it has
anything to do with the flawky "Artica S" with undiscovered features
to do.

Look this is exactly what I mean. Fighting amongst eachother about who makes mistakes and when, where, how is totally rediculous because before you know it.....you make the same stupid mistake.

So let's not get this out of control and once and for all quit with these crap this, crap that discussions.

Where humans for god sake. We are screwups by design; without excemption.!! ;-)

It would be better of you read the news item again, because there's something very important you're missing... I won't tell you what :-)

This is a very very good example of the excellent level of customer
service that can be expected from Genesi/bPlan.An instant fix...when
is the last time that we experienced light-speed support? Wonderful!

Good thing is .. Genesi are able to admit they have made a goofus and wiling to make fixes ASAP. based what I haev understood.. this OF-bug was only noticed earlier today. bad thing is.. they do make mistakes at time to time and can't be able to sort them all out before releasing new stuff. Anyhow, not a showstopper..

From my experince, I can say: if firmware update to Aone is as painless as it is to Pegasos there ain't much to worry about.

BongoBuddy, not one Reseller prepaid for their boards. In fact, not one Reseller has paid for the boards they have recieved so far.

We are grateful to Thomas and Gerald for getting the error corrected and a solution posted so quickly.

In my opinion, the issue has been resolved, so the deal is done, no need to further discuss this here, i'm sure it will be discussed by the proper people internally.

As for the A1, i don't know, the later ones come with a flashable rom iirc

I got my AmgaOne-XE in June and I've updated the flash rom twice. It takes a couple of minutes and is totally painless. :-)

In my opinion this thing is crap... but it is good for Peg2 users that Genesi is fast enough to make a fix in a little time.

Well, If they want to be Amiga then they have to realize that they get the curse too.

bbrv & Genesi.

Congratulations for getting a good product out relatively on time.

I'm waiting to see when you or the other Amiga-related companies actually start to innovate before I buy. The current offerings are, compared to the pc equivalents, too poor for my liking.

But I hope you have the best of success and can show some much needed leadership in the IT industry.

In the same fashion I wish the best of success to Hyperion & eyetech and I hope for the same future for them too.

My expectations aren't high though.

Fair enough. What are you looking for?

For my company we ordered two Sony VAIO laptops.

They were completely faulty : hardrive damn slow, machine slowing down enourmously when not connected to sector power, etc etc...

We had to change them.

So if Sony fails, why not Genesi or Eyetech, or the milkman, or the baker etc... ?

I can top that. We ordered a backup server for 20 grand.. and it came without the harddrives =)

Wellll, you didn't expect a server at only 20 grand to include storage space, did you? Surely that's an extra ;-)

Good work to Genesi for getting this update out so quickly over the festive season.

I wonder what the comments in this thread would be like if there had been a similar problem with the AmigaONE though! >-)

Yes amorel, they did as they would for any product purchased online and every single one of them received the product the ordered.
