Kiosk on a Quadra 650 and Slink?
I work for a Nature Center and they have an old Quadra 650 laying around. I
saw the Kiosk HOWTO and told them I could install Linux on this computer and
run a computer Kiosk. After poking around a bit I'm not quite so sure this
is possible at http://www.mac.linux-m68k.org/development/macspecs.html
they have the Q650 listed as "?" for booting also no "ADB" support, what is
that exactly? I run Debian on my Intel machines at home and would love to
use it with this computer. It has a 500 mb scsi hard drive, over 100 mb of
ram, 33 mhz processor. Basically the computer will have to support a
website served by Apache, running a Netscape browser and that is all. I
would plan on installing from a CD-ROM. Do you think running a Kiosk is
possible with this machine and Slink? Would it be stable? I keep reading
that the kernels are unstable with the Mac distro. Would there be any
reason to wait for Potato? Please cc me as I'm not on the list yet.
