Quadra 950 + PPC card

Quadra 950 + PPC card

Post by Gilles Barge » Wed, 27 Mar 2002 03:33:16



hello,

I got for free an old Quadra with a 66 MHz PPC601 card.
I'd like to install an Unix on it.

Yes, I could remove the PPC card and install Linux68K :-(

but with the PPC card, I'm afraid I'll never be able to boot.

I tried the MkLinux Extension which says "No open firmware,
machine not recognized, err=118".
BootX extension crashes.

I know Linux do not support NuBus.

Any idea, any advice (even negative :-) could help me.

in this case I'll chose to install NetBSD-68K

1. openbsd and Quadra 950

Hi I am interested in installing this onto a Quadra 950, but in my
research there is no version that supports this particular model. Can
anyone shed some light on this..? Also I have a Daystar powerpro
601-100mhz upgrade card installed into this machine, that I also cannot
find out if there is any Linux support for.

Thanks
