Yes, one more of the multiple names that people called Oberon in its

The installation instructions under "JKU Linz, J.L. Marais" link are
for the V4 Oberon (also called Linz Oberon, ha!).

Correct installations instructions that I know of for several versions:
Here you have a copy of the old ftp site at ETH, that is no longer
online as many of us already know, really sad:
Even the mirror I copied from is not accessible anymore.

Images from Oberon V4 and System 3 (so called ETH Oberon)
both under Windows or Linux to check the difference, could be of help
to put in the variants, I thought.

I test the links, despite being ftp, not opened in modern browsers,
but tested with an ftp app, and all work fine.
