BeOS for Power Mac


My Mac is listed as supported by the BeOS for Power Mac, and I followed the installation instructions perfectly, but when I boot the BeOS, my video goes weird after the Be logo. What's wrong?

The BeOS Preview Release 1 requires a multisync monitor to work. Non-multisync monitor such as the Apple 13" and 16" monitors will not work with the BeOS Preview Release 1, and using one can produce the video madness you are experiencing.

BeOS Preview Release 2 and subsequet releases remove this limitation but graphics performance with fixed sync monitors is slower than with multisync monitors. Be highly recommends multisync monitors for use with the BeOS.

<< Are other hardware or peripherals incompatible with the BeOS?  Why does my video look so bad when I boot the BeOS #2?  >>
