Recommendations for trying etch-m68k
I'd like to try Etch-m68k. The machine I'd like to use is a Quadra 630
with a 1.1G IDE drive and 54M RAM. It currently has a working Sarge
install that's just been used for experimental purposes. I'm not too
concerned about the current contents of the drive. I installed Sarge
using a bootable Emile CD, which I'm actually still using to boot the
machine. (The kernel is 2.2.25-mac)
1. I would like to try doing a dist-upgrade. Is this likely to have
any chance of working? I've got 343M free on the drive. I can
uninstall some big packages for the upgrade and reinstall them later if
I'm likely to need more disk space.
2. I would like to switch to a 2.6 kernel. I just tried a 2.6.18-4-mac
floppy image from the EMILE SourceForge page. It boots and I can SSH
in, but ADB seems to be broken (or maybe it's hardcoded for a non-US
keyboard layout? (Is there a boot option?)) I guess I'll have to try
emile-tools and make my own boot disk. Suggestions on a good binary?
3. Any suggestions as to other considerations before trying the upgrade?
