Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers


[ Thanks to Annonymous for this link. ]

"As of July 31, 2000, the PowerMac 5200/5300/6200/6300 family of computers, and their Performa equivalents, are officially supported in MkLinux. Please NOTE that only the 6214 has been tested, so there may be some small snags in some of the others. Barring any surprises, though, it should "just work."

"CAVEATS:

  • Sound is not supported yet. That's the next priority....
  • SCSI is working, but rather slow. It's partially hardware at fault, and partially a lack of pseudo-DMA code. Oh well. It "mostly works." As always, your mileage may vary.
  • Serial is untested. It should work, but again, YMMV."
