Does anyone out there have any tips or experience with installing
Debian potato on a Macintosh? I've got an old Performa 6300CD (NuBus
PowerPC machine, CPU runs at 94MHz) that I'd like to use to play
around with Linux.
MkLinux is a Linux running on a Mach microkernel, and it appears to be
the only Linux available for NuBus Macs (the newer PCI based ones seem
to have much better Linux support.) Supposedly there are Debian
potato diskettes that will install MkLinux, but I suppose I'd have to
get a matched set of potato Base install diskettes for this to work.
Since potato is an old release, it seems unlikely that I'll find
If anyone has any idea, I'd be happy to hear them.
