-With the use of drivers from the **Gateway UNIX CD**, certain other graphics cards are supported which may be easier to find (see the hardware page or the readme in the archive for a complete list). Among them is the Picasso II/PicassoII+, both of which are relatively easy to find on eBay and the like — especially compared to the A2410. Before Jeff's attempt however, no current installations were known.+With the use of drivers from the [[http://amigaunix.com/lib/exe/fetch.php/downloads:gatewayvol2_cd_amix_files.zip|Gateway UNIX CD]], certain other graphics cards are supported which may be easier to find (see the hardware page or the readme in the archive for a complete list).

 +Some history ([[http://gopher.muffinlabs.com/telefisk.org/amiga/Amix/Klaus_Burckert_patch/Readme.AMIX|source]]): //These archives are a donation from Klaus Burckert. 
 + 
 +Klaus currently works at Village Tronic, at was, is and will be responsible for the hardware design of the graphic boards 
 +"Domino", "Picasso II", "Mac Picasso" and "Picasso IV". Also he worked a lot on the Ethernet-Board "Ariadne"
 + 
 + 
 +Since long his hobby was AMIX. Having an A2000 with a GVP Series II SCSI adaptor, he wrote support for this adaptor for AMIX. 
 + 
 + 
 +Also, he wrote about a dozen of very sophisticated X Servers for several graphic boards. Having intented to release this stuff for years, he finally found a place to distribute it on the Gateway! Vol. 2.

 This has only been tested with a Picasso II+ board using a fully patched 2.1p2a installation. Other supported boards should use the same or very similar procedure. This has only been tested with a Picasso II+ board using a fully patched 2.1p2a installation.

Write this file to an empty tape on your A3070, don't forget to retension/zero out if necessary (//see this page for more info on working with tape in AMIX//): dd if=X11R5_bin.tar bs=512 of=/dev/rmt/4h+4.
