Re: Upgrading from etch-m68k to unstable
The qemu-m68k approach works fine at least with sarge, but with
etch-m68k qemu-m68k cannot handle some syscalls...
This is how I revived my amiga; first debootstrapping sarge on i386
(second stage and tinkering using qemu), cross-compiling the latest
kernel, installing amigaos with amiboot on the amiga's hdd using e-uae,
and booting the debootstrapped sarge over nfsroot (no support in the
latest kernel for my SCSI-controller).
sarge can then be upgraded to etch-m68k and so forth

if you want to test your upgrade process, I think it would be nice to
work in a chroot... and with qemu you can do that. It is not as mature
as aranym, but it is nice to play with it.
How to do ? Follow this:
create an etch-m68k system under /m68k using something like
sudo debootstrap --arch=m68k --foreign etch-m68k /m68k http://archive.debian.org/debian
then get my qemu m68k fork (based on the work of Andreas Schwab):
git clone git://gitorious.org/qemu-m68k/qemu-m68k.git
and build it:
./configure --target-list=m68k-linux-user --m68k-default-cpu=m68040 --static
sudo cp m68k-linux-user/qemu-m68K /m68k/usr/bin
sudo chroot /m68k

And for the fun, I've a little program computing the bogomips as the
kernel startup does and guessing the emulated Mhz:
(on a Intel(R) Atom(TM) CPU N270 @ 1.60GHz)
I've no real internet access until mid of august, but I'll try to answer
to your questions, if any...

I'm in the progress of upgrading my Amigas from etch-m68k to unstable from debian-ports.org. With the great help from Thorsten Glaser I wrote up some kind of How-To on:
Please feel free to comment on this How-To and give feedback about your upgrade experience, preferrably here on the list so that bugs and errors can be solved!
Wouter already pointed yesterday to his build of debian-installer...
