Debian Linux on AmigaONE

Postby Outcast^ » Tue Aug 19, 2003 5:23 pm

Well ... I've received my new AmigaONE motherboard yesterday....The new Amiga operating system (Os4) is still being developed, not due for release until October..

So Debian Linux ( PPC) has been shipped with it.
I've already fitted it into the Thermaltake tower I bought ready for it but have run out of dosh before I could complete the build.

Still gotta get RAM . Apparently, rumour has it that linux has problems with more than 512Mb.
DVDwriter
PSU .. Damn case didn't come with one !!
Keyboard
Trackball .... I hate mice ... The x86 system I'm using now has a trackball (logitech) which is MUCH better than a rodent.


I should be able to purchase those bits next week as I'm filming a wedding tomorrow.

Then the fun & games installing linux will begin !!

I have never heard about linux having trouble with high ram. I use 768mb ram and never had a problem and I've tried quite a few different distros out. Windows 98 and Me do have a problem with over 500mb ram. You need to edit a system file to make it work.

Thats interesting ..( NO Ram problem)

Might be a quirk of PPC linux though.
