FAQ for netbsd ( for 68K ) ??

Post by tinusz nijmeije » Tue, 29 Aug 1995 04:00:00

is there a faq, or another document on installing netbsd on a mac IIsi ?

( in short : I'm a PC guy, running OS/2, Windows/DOS and Linux on it; got
myself an old ( but nice !! ) Mac IIsi, heard about netBSD and can't seem
to find any documentation. The IIsi has two hd's : scsi 0 is startup disk
and 40 MB, scsi 2 is 500 MB, divided in 2 256 MB partitions. I thought I
might use one of these partitions to run netBSD. Idle Hope ??)

thanks for all the fish

Not a FAQ, but there is an install document for 1.0 (fairly old).  There
is also a HOWTO for the IIsi around, but you should ignore it--it has
old information in it.  The current NetBSD snapshot for the mac68k
should support the IIsi.

It's available from ftp.netbsd.org in pub/NetBSD/arch/mac68k.  The
install document for 1.0 is available on the WWW as well as from another
directory on ftp.netbsd.org.

Check out http://www.netbsd.org/Ports/mac68k/index.html for more info on

you have more questions.

1. Amaya for NetBSD/68k?

Hi all,

I'd like to be able to run the W3C's testbed browser on my 68k machine,
but this seems not to be possible: W3C only make binaries available
for three systems, and the sources are only available to W3C member

Anyone know of a way around this?  I'd be willing to act as a volunteer
for an organisation if necessary ...
