68040 MacBSD?

Post by Sheldon Sim » Wed, 26 Apr 1995 04:00:00



Does anyone know the latest on a 68040 version os NetBSD/Mac? Even though
I knew it wouldn't work, I installed the 1.0 version on my Quadra 650
anyway and fooled around with it. With caches turned off it seemed to
come close to actually booting...

 Allen's still working on the SCSI and the current ADB system probably won't
work either. If that's the original 1.0 kernel from the tars, it hardly works
on anything.

1. Linux on 68040-Mac?

speaking of software emulation of a fpu: why bother with writing an
emulator if there is a softemulator (for the mac) available?

which reminds me - according to fritzler's page, a pbook190cs boots linux,
but not any other 68040 mac? how is that? the 190cs only has a lc040, or
not?

2. Temp. sensors on Tyan Thunder board?

3. Need a kernel for 68040 (MVME 167 board!)

4. lsof & non-stat()-ble NFS server

5. Linux on Macintosh 68040?

6. NEED OPINIONS OF SYS ADMINS ON ALLOWING access to chfn, etc.

7. Free UN*X for NeXT (was Re: Linux for NeXT 68040?)

8. Connecting

9. NetBSD1.0A (amiga) gas & 68040

10. optimizing floating point performance on 68040--how do you do it?

11. Linux on 68040-Mac?

12. Linux runs on ppc 68040 : 62MbRam , 400 MB hdu ?

13. 68040 port
