ApolloOS & Amiga 600 Vampire 2

I downloaded ApolloOS from EXTERNAL LINK from the category V2/V4, assuming that is would work.
 
  When I reboot I get a setpatch error 20. When I try to edit the startup sequence using ED, I get a posix.library missing error.
 
  I have successfully flashed the vampire card with the new Gold 2.15 rom assuming this is required to use the new operating system.
 
  Is there something I am missing or should I use one of the alternatives like CoffinOS or Workbench 3.2?
 
  Thank you.

  I think ApolloOS only worked on the 2.14 core release. It has been said that AmigaOS is the target for the V2 line, so all cores except 2.14 are for AmigaOS.
 
  I could be wrong of course but I think that is the way it is.

Thanks Darren,

I downloaded Coffin r59 from this torrent - EXTERNAL LINK 
I am running Coffin r59 with the Gold 2.15 firmware.
So far, I am very impressed.
Some really good RTG games, videos, demos etc.
There's a lot in this 32GB image.

Agreed. Coffin is great. They should move to a 64gb image and pack in more stuff.

It actually says on the V2 Support statement that 3.x is supported.
it says this rather than 3.1 so 3.2 is not excluded therefore IS supported by ApolloTeam

If this is not the case then the support statement is incorrect.

Thanks Nick,

I read the support statement.
I also noticed that EXTERNAL LINK has made some changes.
