Which Unix/Linux for AmigaOne ?
« on: November 09, 2008, 10:21:55 PM »
Hi everybody !

I have to set up again my linux config on my A1SE, but this time I have enough to swap of graphic card (i've a R9100 which was not supported natively by YLD3 and Debian 3, so i had to unplug it for a R7000 which is no more supported by AmigaOS4.x).

Does anyone make a bootcd for a recent linux distro ? Or a good trick ?
Keep the Faith !

I have never installed Linux on my MicroA1, so I can't help other than point out some threads.

When I looked at your post, there was a list of "Similar Threads" below.  There are also several threads over on amigaworld.

Some other people have been wondering about boot CDs for Linux.

Does Geri's new kernel work on the SE? You could probably get a newer Debian installed with that.

Debian or Yellow Dog.
I think Debian Woody/Sarge work no problem, for Debian Etch and newer you may need a newer kernel.
I have Woody/Sarge CDs if you want it for starters.  Etch you can get yourself.

The easy tick is to install woody, sarge then whatever else, by upgrading your distro.
